Another month down, thus another tracks of the month, with quite the mix this month, with a mix of new, returning and unexpected music – and in a variety of styles.
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
In the past, I’ve generally not posted a “tracks of the month” post at the beginning of the year, instead waiting until early February. This year is different, partly because so many great new songs have already been released from releases due in 2019, but also because my end-of-year (Countdown) series covers December to November.
One last month of 2018 where I’m wrapping up new music, and it’s been an interesting set of songs that I’ve been sifting through this month. Not everything was able to be included, to be honest, as for once I decided to stick with a maximum of ten songs. Also, look out for a second […]
As we hurtle into Autumn, I’m now already considering what might be the best of 2018. Certainly, some of the releases featured this week will count toward that, but as always I cannot include everything – much as I’d like to.
Infest is over (if you missed it, read more at Memory of a Festival: 030), summer is beginning to ebb away as we move into September and autumn, and we’re hit with the usual deluge of new material as the autumn release schedules kick into life.
Another month gone, and thus time again to wrap up the best music I’ve heard recently – and once again, there is a lot of it. Not quite enough to make it to twenty songs, mind, but more than enough to be considering and discovering.
Back to the first Tuesday of the Month now, after a really, really busy month that left me without time anyway last week – that and there were a couple of releases that I needed to wait until this week to feature. And to catch up a bit, there are more than ten this month.
We are nearly at the halfway point of 2018 already, folks. How is this year slipping away so fast? Anyway, amid the heat of the long, Bank Holiday weekend, I’ve pulled together the best tracks of the past month.
Just before Whitby, I’m trying to get a few posts in to catch-up a bit. First up, today, is this month’s Tracks, but also to follow will be Transmission: 008 and hopefully at least one review that I’ve had in the works for a while.
Eleven years on – to the day – from the very first Tuesday Ten, and very first Tracks of the Month (Tuesday Ten: 001), this is Tuesday Ten: 326. The Tuesday Ten series always takes a break for about six weeks during December and into January, so there have been 506 weeks where I could […]
At least for now, I’ve pulled forward the tracks of the month posts by a week to the last Tuesday of the Month from the first, as that suits my posting schedule a bit better at the moment (and it will also avoid posting over the Easter and Whitby weekends, too). The intention hasn’t changed, […]
The first Tracks of the Month of 2018, and really, we’re picking up where we left off before Christmas. Releases are being announced thick and fast at this time of year, as ever, and in the case of this month, it is something of a “catch up” of releases that I haven’t had the chance […]
The final tracks of the month for this year, so this one is slightly longer than usual as I try and crowbar in as many songs as possible to clear the decks. That’s because we’re just weeks away from starting to round-up the year in music, and there’s been so much good stuff this year […]
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 […]
Autumn is inching into view? At least it feels like from the weather, anyway. And as we move into September, the end of the summer (and the end of quieter trains into work, too), here are this month’s tracks of the month.
Already back ’round to a new month, and we’re hurtling through summer. First Tuesday of the new month, then, so time for the best tracks, and there are a lot of them this time around. Why? The autumn release schedule is, it seems, rather crowded this year.
As I nudge toward Tuesday Ten: 300 next week (a milestone I never thought I’d reach), another month has passed and here we are again with the latest batch of new tracks to catch up on. It’s something of a mix of styles, as ever. We were having a debate on my Facebook page a […]
It is, then, the week of another bloody election this week here in the UK, and there has been distinct signs of just how fucked off everyone seems to be with it across the coverage of it (not helped by the uptick in terrorist attacks in the country in recent weeks). Fuck knows what is […]
It has been another busy week gathering and writing content at amodelofcontrol.com, and there will be a few posts in the next couple of weeks as a result. The first of which is this, the best tracks of the past month.
