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 […]
We’re nearing the end of the year, which means that I’ve only one, or maybe two, /Tracks of the Month roundups left after this in 2019 (I should clarify – because of the way release schedules work and the way that I write, my end of year lists appear on successive Tuesdays in early December, […]
Friday, the end of the mad week in the UK – even by 2019 standards – so let’s look at things to distract us, either by way of 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 […]

Part two of my 2016 round-up is being posted from Los Angeles, so hello from there.

Another batch of new tracks for you to listen to and read about.
