Now into autumn, the releases keep on coming. Today I bring you a fully updated events listing, a host of releases again, and a tentative return to livestreams.
In the meantime, here’s the usual wrap of new music and suchlike this week.

Look out, in a few months time, for the usual /amodelofcontrol.com round-up of 2021 – /Countdown. I’ll be looking at the best albums, best tracks, and best compilations and re-issues, on the Tuesdays in December up to Christmas.
/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.
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).

I know nothing about this artist, but it was in my inbox this week as an announcement, and the blurb has me intrigued.
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. I’m currently fixing a couple of minor backend issues, so new events may not be added promptly, or be added sporadically.
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.
/Tuesday Ten/466 will come this week, and look out for more of my contributions on the Stay-In-Fest stream (those interviews will be added to /amodelofcontrol.com in the coming weeks).
