The whole business of the side-project is something that has kept industrial artists busy pretty much since the genre was a thing. Some work brilliantly, some are instantly forgettable, and some have become better known than the parent project.
The first Friday of February, and it is Bandcamp Day once again – so there is a deluge of new releases and release announcements this week, perhaps more than I’ve ever had on one Friday to cover. Livestreams and waiting for new releases seem to be the order of the day for now, still, so […]
One month, then, of what is likely to be a difficult year for many of us, is out of the way. At least here in the Northern Hemisphere, the days start to get longer, it might stop raining quite so much, it even might get a bit warmer.
The last Friday of January, daylight is edging into the early evening, and maybe hints of Spring are starting to appear. Lockdown looks like it’s going to go on for a while yet, mind, festivals are beginning to be cancelled for the summer (again), and so livestreams and waiting for new releases seem to be […]
Continuing the amodelofcontrol.com review of 2020, which this week turns attention to the best tracks of the year. Next week will be the wrap of the best albums of 2020.
We keep going amid the lockdown. There are new releases, and still, new music coming through, and buying music right now is the only way we can help. The events listing is still being updated, but obviously, an awful lot is being postponed, cancelled or changed right now.
A welcome to the many new readers of this page. This is the weekly Friday post, of new music coming your way this week and soon, as well as a look at the events and gigs in the future, and finally nods to any other notable news that affects artists and music that I cover […]
Onto week two of /Countdown/2019 on amodelofcontrol.com, and this week I’m looking at the best tracks of the year. These might be the singles, they might be album tracks, they might be one-offs. But all of them are songs I love in one way or another, and they aren’t all necessarily songs that fall within […]
Back to the usual routine of weekly Friday posts, containing new music or events to consider. This is the usual amodelofcontrol.com round-up, of new music coming your way this week and soon, as well as a look at the events and gigs in the future, and finally nods to any other notable news that affects […]
Right then, we’re back in the saddle now, and regular editions of the /transmission podcast will now be released once again – broadly bi-weekly, but that may depend on our commitments around the time! Anyway, this week we get through the remainder of the letter “k”, and again with a contentious artist this week, that […]
In conversations at recent gigs, a number of us have agreed that we’ve been surprised at the sheer amount of new music that has come our way already in 2019. There are a whole host of exciting new releases in February, never mind further beyond that, and already it’s proving difficult to keep up
Welcome to the Future: 069? Nice. It’s Friday, therefore time for the usual amodelofcontrol.com round-up of new music coming your way this week and soon, as well as a look at the events and gigs in the future, and finally nods to any other notable news that affects artists and music that I cover here.
Onto week two of Countdown: 2017 on amodelofcontrol.com, and this week I’m looking at the best tracks of the year. These might be the singles, they might be album tracks, they might be one-offs. But all of them are songs I love in one way or another. Weirdly, some of these have been really difficult […]
This year I was keeping an eye on Cold Waves in Chicago from afar (thanks for the reports everyone, sounds like it was a great weekend), and even this way I’ve ended up with a few recommendations of bands I need to check out. And instead of heading 3950 miles west, we headed 10 miles […]
It has, to be fair, been a tough week. The loss of an old friend has hit a number of us surprisingly hard, but the happy memories being posted in the past few days have helped an awful lot. That and illness doing the rounds has made for a slog of a week that at […]
