Prayers for Preparation

about

Flashy as a buzzsaw under a naked bulb, noise-sick Beijing post-punk trio Lonely Leary’s debut album Through the Park, Almost There rips through your comfort zone with a breezy unease. Mechanical, maniacal drums and robotic bass lines propel them forward, but they’re all burning flesh, aimless angst coursing through down-and-out anthems like “Stay Ugly.” Song Ang’s guitar cuts surgically, hypnotically on tracks such as mid-album highlight “Silver City,” while vocalist Qiu Chi barks his dissatisfaction throughout, most directly and despondently on “Prayers for Preparation,” the sickly ritual album closer. These songs have been through the gauntlet, spent years in trial on Beijing’s dirtiest live house stages, and emerge now clear enough to hear, opaque enough to feel on the gut level of vague nausea. Through the Park, Almost There doesn’t quite arrive, but it launches one of Beijing’s best current bands, Sisyphus-style, onto the next leg of their twisted journey to the top of the hill.

阴影上升,夜在落
蜂鸣划过
序列的灯光

阴影上升,夜在落
蜂鸣划过
序列的灯光

从一条街走向另一条街
视线裹挟溢出污水的地面
骤然间

倾泄的人群暴雨般下降
坐在长椅上,被时间遗忘
而颤栗的季节从无关正确
只剩游荡对视漫漫长夜

阴影上升,夜在落
蜂鸣划过
序列的灯光

阴影上升,夜在落
蜂鸣划过
序列的灯光

很快公园将会开始晕眩
灌木后面升起油腻的烟
骤然间

倾泄的人群暴雨般下降
坐在长椅上,被时间遗忘
而颤栗的季节从无关正确
只剩游荡对视漫漫长夜

即便人群在噪音中间纵身跳跃
即便明天城市将听见新的语言
你已厌倦,疲于进入无聊的三月
终于看见自己将眼睛转向火焰
转向火焰

骤然间
Track Name: Along the Youth Palace Road
这是缄默的夜晚
梧桐繁密的大街
风从一端去另一端

当劣性空气弥漫
铁皮焊造的房间
几近被愉悦毁灭的脸

看见复眼
割裂的世界

走进缄默的夜晚
灯箱积聚的光线
穿越国道,去向意外

看见河流的阻断
看见污水的漫延
雕像落下
拆作碎片

投向复眼
割裂的世界
