Recent press for KWC and LftW...

Kowloon Walled City are featured in the March issue of Alarm Magazine. Here's a scan of their write-up/review:

And a little while back, Outburn Magazine featured some nice reviews of KWC and Litany for the Whale:

Teeth of the Divine also had some nice things to say about LftW in a recent review:

"Here’s a cool little 7 track EP from a new California act who mange to meld dark, pummeling hardcore, crust and post rock into a solid release that bodes well for the future, even in relatively crowded scene. Definitely recommended for fans on Converge due to some blistering chaos, underlined with some subtle and metallic harmonies, Litany For the Whale will also appeal to fans of Gaza, Cursed, Harlots and such with their addition of crumbling atmospherics and instrumental sections amid the gritty metallic spurts." - Teeth of the Divine

Also worth checking out... Scott Evans from KWC did a massive interview with Kurt Ballou on God City Studio for the new issue of Tape Op.
