/Welcome to the Future/177/Livestreams and new releases 04-Jun 2021

The weather has improved, Livestreams are back from me, (still) who knows what the future holds. 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, as well as the tentative announcements for new in-person events and gigs.

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

Slighter / VOID /Bandcamp
Slighter heads deep into experimental electronic textures with new album VOID. Turn the volume up as the sound design is exquisite.
Ghost Twin / Love Songs For End Times /Bandcamp
The second album of dreamy, trip-hop/industrial from this ever intriguing Canadian duo.
Blac Kolor / Times of Upheaval /Bandcamp
After a string of singles and EPs, the latest new album from industrial-techno titan Blac Kolor.
Boss Keloid / Family the Smiling Thrush /Bandcamp
Proggy, experimental metal that’s perhaps surprisingly catchy.
King Buffalo / The Burden of Restlessness /Bandcamp
Is psych-post-metal a thing? Judging on the output of King Buffalo, I’d say so.
Liz Phair / Soberish /Official Website
The long-promised new album from the alt-rock hero.
Reptilicus & The Hafler Trio / Designer Time /Bandcamp
A re-release with an intriguing history

/Upcoming releases announced this week
17-Jun / Order of the Static Temple / Rise In Fire /Bandcamp
Solid industrial from this new project by old hands in the scene.
27-Aug / CHRVCHES / Screen Violence /Band store
CHVRCHES bounce back with their much-anticipated fourth album.

/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/456 will come next week, as well as the second of the recently completed interviews (this one with LONESAW) – the latter carried over from the last few weeks (it needs a fair bit of formatting correction after some issues with it, and I’ve not had the time so far).

Livestreams continue from me this coming week – all detailed here.
