Kowloon Walled City readies ‘Container Ships’ (stream a song)
by Fred Pessaro // BBG
Kowloon Walled City at Cake Shop, Sept 2010 (more by Justin Tyler)
San Francisco sludge killers Kowloon Walled City‘s last go around in the NYC area was paired with the nasty doomers in Batillus (who play 285 Kent on the same day as the BV-BBG showcase). The two played a string of shows together, including a pair of dates at Acheron and Cake Shop. Possibly owing some influence to their nautically-themed tour mates, KWC are readying their new LP and first in four years, Container Ships. The long-player hits on December 4 via Brutal Panda, pre-order yours.
Container Ships features seven tracks including the first song to see the light of day, “The Pressure Keeps Me Alive.” Check that out below, alongside the track listing and the album art. No tour dates yet, but that should change very soon. Until then, get familiar with their recorded works below.
