  1. Grievances will be released 10/9. The vinyl through Gilead Media. Container Ships was one of my favorite releases of 2012, and I can't wait for this! Preorder here 100 - Nebula $25 -SOLD OUT 350 - Red $17 550 - Black $17 New song "Backlit" here From Gilead Media: KOWLOON WALLED CITY will release their long-awaited new full-length this Fall. Grievances, their third album and first for Neurot Recordings, finds the San Francisco band at its artistic peak, having moved even further away from its sludgy, post-hardcore origins and toward a sparser, sadder, yet still de-tuned heaviness. This shift began with 2012’s critically successful Container Ships, which Lambgoat described as, “spacious,” and, “mildly hypnotic,” with a, “Shellac-like use of dead time and instrumentation,” and The Obelisk called, “cerebral in approach.” On Grievances, the band takes these elements to even greater extremes. The strings rattle. The guitars crackle and blister. The notes ring out, at turns bleak and beautiful — sometimes both at once. “We dug into this expansive, less distorted vibe. The songs are mostly slow and bummed out but we still want them to push, to have energy,” said vocalist/guitarist Scott Evans. Evans, together with guitarist Jon Howell, bassist Ian Miller, and drummer Jeff Fagundes spent over two years working on the seven songs for Grievances. The intense editing process weeded out about two albums’ worth of songs. Howell’s unusual chord changes and discordant aesthetic channel Unwound and Slint. Miller’s gritty bass adds a surprising layer of depth and melody, while Fagundes’ drums resonate in what sounds like an impossibly large room. Evans’ shouted vocals are raw with frustration and disappointment, but without the typical veneer of macho aggression. “We’re not interested in doing something that’s good enough — we want to do something that we believe is good,” said Miller. “With Scott’s concept and sonics and Jon’s playing and our rhythm section, we feel like should be able to do something interesting. But it’s hard work.” The concept of work forms the thematic foundation of the entire record, from the cover art to the title and the lyrics. Whereas previous KOWLOON WALLED CITY releases were largely inspired by the band’s hometown of San Francisco, Grievances focuses its attention on our complex relationships with work and the power our employment — and employers — have over us. As with KOWLOON WALLED CITY‘s previous releases, Evans recorded and mixed, starting in Sharkbite Studios and finishing in his own Antisleep Audio, both in Oakland. “We’re not a fancy band. There are no effects to speak of, no reverb, no delays,” said Evans. “We each play one guitar, one pedal, one amp. So there’s not much to hide behind. I try to respect that in our recording process and our recordings.” Grievances Track Listing: 1. Your Best Years 2. Grievances 3. Backlit 4. The Grift 5. White Walls 6. True Believer 7.

  2. San Francisco's KOWLOON WALLED CITY are set to release their much anticipated sophomore album, Container Ships, on December 4th via Brutal Panda Records. Their first record in three years was recorded at Sharkbite Studios in Oakland, CA, this past August with guitarist/vocalist Scott Evans handling the production duties. Led by poignant guitar melodies soaked in malaise and a powerful rhythm section, Container Ships flawlessly combines elements of sludge, post-rock and indie rock to create a truly unforgettable, heavy as an oil tanker, listening experience. The lead track "The Pressure Keeps Me Alive" can be streamed via BrooklynVegan: http://www.brooklynv...alled.html#more Pre-orders available here: http://brutalpandare...ships-12-vinyl/.
  3. This has been mentioned in the MLB thread, but I think it is worthy enough to be shown to those who don't read that thread. Made up of Riley Breckenridge (Thrice), Ian Miller (Kowloon Walled City), Jon Howell (Kowloon Walled City), and Mike Minnick (ex-Curl Up And Die). First song is called "One Man, Five Tools." Listen here - http://puigdestroyer.bandcamp.com/ They printed some shirts, but they sold out fast. A second run is on pre-order now until July 10. http://productiveouts.shopsilentempire.com/product/547/puig_destroyer_tee

  5. One or two of you might know (probably not) that I opened a record store (Fuzz Records) in Albany, NY about a year ago. Either way, I'm pretty stoked to announce that I've started a label with a friend of mine. Our first release is Maggot Brain - Stop and Breathe. Check out their Bandcamp. The records are in transit. Once they get here and make sure they aren't broken or anything, we'll have them for sale here. In addition to putting out a record we really dig, we're really excited that Maggot Brain and another local band, HUSH were able to get Kowloon Walled City and Zozobra to make one of their stops on their short east coast tour in Albany. If you live anywhere near Albany, please come out. Details if you care.
