Grievances, the third album from Kowloon Walled City and its 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.

"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 and guitarist Scott Evans.

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."

Kowloon Walled City formed in 2007 and has released an EP, Turk Street (Wordclock, 2008), and two full-length albums, Gambling on the Richter Scale (Perpetual Motion Machine, 2009) and Container Ships (Brutal Panda, 2012), as well as two splits. Among the bands it has shared stages with are Neurosis, Tragedy, Sleep, Thou, Coliseum, Zozobra, Fight Amp, Roomrunner, The Body, and Helms Alee.
