GO BIG SHADOW CITY是后洛杉矶双人组Alpine Decline发行的第五张全长专辑，乐队声场由吉他，鼓和轰鸣声构成。这张专辑，是北京之声的索引和编码。这里说的“北京之声”这个词超越了同辈乐队们和Alpine Decline所形成的场景，GBSC是他们听到的北京这个城市自身的声音，并且传达给身处其外的人们。香烟的气体被凝固在数不完的长长的2英寸磁带中，令人耳根发烫的街道声响透过致癌的粉尘。怎样才能不被烟囱杀死？“戴着面具潜行”（“Walk With Mask”），Alpine Decline疲惫地恳求着。“别提问”（“Don't Ask Questions”），吉他音色像霓虹闪耀沸腾着穿过巨大的工业阴翳乌云；它们层层叠叠，循环往复，像这个城市自己创造性破坏的莫比乌斯大道。鼓声跟随着外环路调节的平行时刻，被北京的撞击声打乱了节奏。
GO BIG SHADOW CITY录制于PK14乐队杨海崧在地下停车场的录音棚。专辑同样是地下的，像根茎一般。鬼魂般的人声处理（“Mid-Level Functionary In A Criminal Syndicate”, “Hang Around The Creases”）和催眠式的旋律（“Fearless In The Face Of Fate”, “Boss”）间隔性地显露几秒钟，然后又沉入汤药般浑浊的声场中。最终，一如既往地，传送崩溃（“The Transmission Comes Apart”）；循环又转回零点，一切从头累计。这次Alpine Decline要大干一场（GO BIG）。

Go Big Shadow City, the fifth full-length from post-LA guitar ‘n drums ‘n buzz duo Alpine Decline, is an index, a cypher for the Beijing sound. Not “the Beijing sound” of their self-selected hometown contemporaries, whom they’re into but beyond — GBSC is the sound of Beijing itself, as heard from the outside. Cigarette vapors caked onto countless km’s of 2” tape, street-level, ear-burning progress filtered through carcinogenic dust. How to survive the smokestack? ‘Walk With Mask,’ A.D. languorously implores. ‘Don’t Ask Questions.’ Guitar tones glow like neons bubbling through the proud industrial shadow clouds; they layer and loop like the city’s own Möbius boulevard of creative destruction. Drums are smashed out of rhythm with the Beijing clang, following a parallel time of Outer Ring Road modulation.
Go Big Shadow City was recorded in the underground parking garage studio of Beijing’s resident post-punk demigod, P.K.14’s Yang Haisong. Its textures are likewise subterranean, rhizomatic. Ghost vox (‘Mid-Level Functionary In A Criminal Syndicate’, ‘Hang Around The Creases’) and narcotic melodies (‘Fearless In The Face Of Fate’, ‘Boss’) emerge for seconds at a time before sinking back into the soup. In the end, as always, ‘The Transmission Comes Apart’; loop back to point 0, rebuild from scratch. This time Go Big.
