What you wanna do Where you gonna go You got to lose control Else you won't get home Cause you're on an unknown chain You spend some time To better yourself You spend some time To better yourself  But you are on an unknown chain I spend sometime To better myself I did spend sometime To better myself Now I am on an unknown train I got something new That I have to do I got someone old That I want to hold And I am on an unknown train We got drums and sex and sound and love and so much fun We got drums and sex and sound and love and so much fun But I don't know why, why she is gone She is gone, boarded an unknown train

Love 04:13
爱 穿过时间和空间的空白 沉睡的秘密被打开 风吹过 划破了悄无声息的大海 我在这里等待 候鸟坠落悬崖的瞬间是永恒的存在 你看 翅膀展开 被迷惑的人呐 分不清过去 现在 和未来 过去 现在 和未来和过去 现在 和未来 爱 支离破碎的爱 穿过身体的风 存不存在 被迷惑的人呐 分不清过去 现在 和未来 过去 现在 和未来和过去 现在 和未来

飞舞的树叶静止在一瞬间 感受空气和雨滴的终点 我用耳朵看他穿过那扇门 时间空间停留在那一边 You open the gate to the otherside 燕子的尾巴划破了屋檐 风声呼叫是力量的来源 用一念打开我的双眼 一眨眼就过去一万年 You open the gate to the otherside 竹林摇摆气息连成一片 潮湿的空气和野兽一样危险 用呼吸观察宇宙的运转 一瞬间就成为了永远 You open the gate to the otherside

Are you freaking out Are you stressing out What you worry about It's nothing at all When the night comes, the moon turns on Wrong can be right and right is wrong When the sun is up, the new dawn comes Forget about who you are, be anyone you want Don't get emotional Don't get emotional Don't get emotional Don't get emotional

Cat God 04:56
猫神的目光在寻找 喝下一瓶蓝色的药 在山腰 跳跳跳跳 跨过一座时间的桥 乌鸦的出现是一种征兆 用黑色覆盖所有的头脑 大声叫 轻轻笑 哈哈哈哈 Cat god is coming your way Ghost son is tracking the day Holy grail, the perfect trio Walk from the dead into the real Cat god comes Cat god goes Cat god stands up says hello One step flies, then he flows Cat god says no Cat god comes Cat god goes Cat god stands up says hello One step flies, then he flows Cat god says go 乌鸦的出现是一种征兆 用黑色覆盖所有的头脑 大声叫 轻轻笑 哈哈哈哈

Get High 03:09
Come around and feel the crowd Feel the heat It’s getting stronger But she... Hear the talking And people laughing People squeezing Gonna keep on moving But she... Get down Get down Get down Get down Get up, get high Get up, get high Get up, get high Get up, get high

啊 在山顶 云 和森林 雨 和彩虹 风 啊 那只突然出现的鹿啊 和天空翱翔的鹰 你们 要去哪里 是山的深处 远方的天空 或者是 要去梦里 众灵有我 我有众灵 众灵有我 我有众灵

about

“Forget the familiar world, open the door to accidents, go to the other side.”

This is the ultimatum set by Beijing’s Gate to Otherside on their debut album, Dragon Bus Terminal, a backlit chamber of esoteric mind-flight set to nine smoldering psychedelic slow-burners, floating heavy, thicker than incense smoke. Like a gently cresting nervous disorder, Dragon Bus Terminal pivots around the head, obeying the rigid pop-logic set by the band’s seminal influences — Can, Sonic Youth, Pink Floyd, and Beijing forebears Carsick Cars — but just as often ricocheting toward the unknown, wild dream logic that sees dragons in Guizhou batiks, religion in nature, mystical truth in abandoned bus stops on the Mongolian steppe. Tied from end to end by a meditative prayer bell as coda, Dragon Bus Terminal at its highest is a trip toward spiritual self-betterment, at its (blessedly) basest a sideways-smiling romp through “drums and sex and sound and love and so much fun” (“Unknown Chain”). Shimmering with shambolic, earnest charm, Dragon Bus Terminal is a crisp and cryptic first chapter in what’s sure to be Gate to Otherside’s long, twisted acid-flash narrative.

Dragon Bus Terminal was produced by Ricky Maymi (Brian Jonestown Massacre) at Tweak Tone Labs in Beijing, engineered by Li Ping and mastered by Treelady. Recommended for fans of other members of the Maybe Mars psych/noise universe: Carsick Cars, The Gar, Birdstriking, Chui Wan.
