/Welcome to the Future/167/Livestreams and new releases 19-Mar 2021

Another busy week of new music and upcoming announcements – not to mention lots of choice on the Livestream front, too. In addition, I’ve overhauled the events page in a big way, so see the link further down for that. Livestreams and waiting for new releases seem to be the order of the day, for now, still, so I continue to wrap up both.

Also, if you missed them, read my roundup of 2020 in the form of /Countdown/2020. /Countdown/2020/Albums, /Countdown/2020/Tracks, and /Countdown/2020/Compilations and Re-issues.

/transmission – the amodelofcontrol.com podcast – has returned, continuing the run through of the a-z of industrial, with all episodes thus far are here. The latest episode is /transmission/024, which starts on the letter P. /transmission/025 will follow soon.

You can also get it via RSS, on iTunes, on Stitcher, and is also now available on the Google Podcasts App (search “amodelofcontrol”) and Spotify too.

If you want to submit anything to be included here? E-mail me (You know what to do with that to make it work, right?), comment/message on Facebook at the amodelofcontrol.com page, and over on Twitter (@amodelofcontrol).


/Releases out today or recently
Consolidated / We’re Already There /Bandcamp
The legendary agit-industrial-hiphop artists return with their first album in a long time. Read my interview with Adam from last year on /Talk Show Host/063
Pierce With Arrow / Shatter /Bandcamp
A ghostly, eerie electronic release that is as fascinating as the blurb on Bandcamp suggests.
Nuclear*Sun / Couldn’t Have Said It Better vol​.​1 /Bandcamp
A fun trip through Nuclear*Sun’s influences on an excellent covers EP.
Featured / Girly /Bandcamp
Julian Beeston’s new project is unexpectedly great. Full of Curve-esque sounds.
Randolph & Mortimer / Born to Consume EP /Bandcamp
R&M gives his early material a proper release at last
Cygnets / Swan Songs /Bandcamp
Cygnets / A Dark Chapter In Our History: The Singles /Bandcamp
An unexpected pair of releases from Cygnets this week (they literally appeared out of the blue). One remasters some early songs, as far as I can tell, the other is a singles compilation – of one of the best, and most unsung, synthpop bands of the past decade.
Absolute Body Control / A New Dawn /Bandcamp
Out tomorrow, the first new ABC material in a while.

/Upcoming releases announced this week
28-May 2021 / HIDE / Interior Terror /Bandcamp
The thrilling Chicago industrial duo return with what looks to be another savage album – first single Do Not Bow Down is a bruiser.

/Upcoming/Livestreams/Gigs/Club Nights/Events
Obviously, things change at short notice right now, and I’m updating events as they are postponed or cancelled, and also including relevant Livestreams as they are announced.

/amodelofcontrol.com continues to maintain an events calendar, but it has now moved to /amodelofcontrol.com/events – and is now a dynamic, searchable database, and you can add individual events to your own calendars.

If you have updates, relevant events for me, or want to tell me about something else, use the contact details above. It goes without saying that any gig or club still in the listing is subject to change at short notice, or may not happen at all.

/amodelofcontrol.com/next week
/Tuesday Ten/448 will come next week, as well as a couple of new interviews (with LONESAW and Terminal) once I’ve transcribed them – there will be another to follow the week after. Life is really busy at the moment so finding the time to write more otherwise is difficult.

Also coming up this week is /Rivet/015/Industrial Livestream tonight. The upcoming livestreams from /amodelofcontrol.com can always be found here, too.
