2019 is here, and the Friday round-up is back. As always this is a look at upcoming releases, relevant music news and upcoming events and gigs worth spending some of your time at – but most importantly this week, it also rounds up what is likely to be coming your way in 2019. I’m always […]

Tuesday Ten: 346: Tracks of the Month (September 2018)

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.

The first Friday of 2018, and amodelofcontrol.com rumbles back into life. Starting with…this week’s round-up of music coming your way in 2018 (that’s relevant to this ‘site, anyway), and a look at what is coming next here, too. It’s all about the future. Well, mostly.

Countdown: 2017: Tracks

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 […]

Welcome to the Future: 009 Music news round-up 25-August 2017

By necessity a shorter post this week, as I’m writing this from the train journey north to Infest in Bradford. Needless to say amodelofcontrol.com will be reporting from the festival with a full review and photos after the weekend, but there may also be other coverage as we go on, on Facebook, Twitter (@amodelofcontrol) and […]

But Listen: 155: Signs of life in British Industrial?

Perhaps this title is a little unfair. But in recent times, British industrial acts have, rather like European acts to a point, played second fiddle to a burst of creativity and style from North American acts, who seem to be dominating stages and DJ sets everywhere. As is often the way, these things happen in […]

Welcome to the Future: 007: Music news round-up 11-August 2017

Here we are with week two of my musical round-up. As I explained last week, this will be a weekly post on a Friday that will wrap up relevant new releases that week, newly announced releases coming in the near future, newly announced gigs of note, and also upcoming gigs/clubs over the next few weeks […]

Tuesday Ten: 251: Tracks of the Month (February 2016)

There may be a decline in sales of new albums vs “catalogue” material, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t new music to discover if you know where to look.
