about

Formed in Shenzhen over a year ago, Pokemon Dad's members were forged in indie rock scenes from all corners of the U.S. Importing the underground basement scene aesthetic to the orient, their music dabbles between dynamic syncopation of trippy mathematical rhythms, with emotionally evocative, nostalgic melodies. Pokemon Dad has been exploring the ethereal auditory landscapes of the accessibly odd. Whether it be struggling to accept the new norms and implications of a digital era, a grandmother who loses her ability to communicate, or a South African friend who's baijiu infused blood causes him to swim in toxic environments, Pokemon Dad's songs are lyrically rich with darkly comical statements about the human condition.

Pokemon Dad (宠物小精灵爸爸)创始于一年前,深圳。它是一只不拘一格的乐队,以后摇滚,数学摇滚,和迷幻摇滚为主要风格(Kevin Daniel Pinner - 鼓手; John Howland - 贝司;Paul Wade - 主唱和吉他;Greg Merrell - 主唱和吉他)他们从美国西雅图,澳四顶,塔拉哈西,和波士顿带了独立摇滚原味。他们的每首歌唯一的共同点就是能够带起听者high得要命。 玩儿着迷幻数学的韵律切分音,弹起怀旧情绪的旋律,Pokemon Dad 探索熟悉而奇特的空灵听觉领域。无论是一位难于接受新一代的数字化音乐的人,一位失去了沟通能力老奶奶,还是一个不幸因白酒沁入血液,酒精中毒而迫使他到有毒环境中游泳的南非朋友,Pokemon Dad的歌曲富含了不同的寓意,并总带着点儿黑色幽默,反应着人们不同的生活常态。

Track Name: Life Pan Sears Most Grandfathers
Futures feel ungrown
They feel ungrown
Stifle any single tone
Any single tone
Phone calls make us feel alone
Make us feel alone
Old men oh they fear and groan
They fear and moan

The fakest fate of our own now
Comforts us to hone
The droning fade of a tone now
The droning fade of a tone

Watches broken I broke
I crashed and I broke
Single ticks like bike spokes
Spin spin the bike spoke
Spinning wild my last spoke-
N word that I spoke
Time passes until we croak
Time will pass and I'll croak
Track Name: Merwe (白酒)
The African child
Keen on rock wild
Amazes me

The African soul
Loves rock and roll
Sound and free

Though sometimes
What's on his mind
Is something that you can't see

Walking on the wire
Lighting trees on fire
And adventures how he lives
How he lives

Here in Taizhou
We all know
He swims past the water monkeys

Dongcheng River
Guitar string sliver
Astounds me

Fire hydrants clank
KFC is dank
And baijiu breeds wrestling
Breeds wrestling
Track Name: It Was I
My traveling companions are ghosts and empty sockets
I'm looking at ghosts and empties
i have reason to believe
We all will be received in Graceland

I may be obliged to defend
Every love and every ending
But maybe there's no obligation
I have reason to believe
We all will be received in Graceland

He said it was not
It it was i
If i was not there to be there with what I did then what
I did nothing but was in other words if no one knew me
Actually the nothings I did would not be what they were

My traveling companion's nine years old
He is the child of my first marriage
For reasons I cannot explain
There's some part of me that wants to see Graceland
Track Name: Aphasia
Why are you so lonely
Lonesome valley droning
Aphasia
No one hears her moaning
Lonesome valley droning
Aphasia

They spoke
Of broken madness
Ideas that aren't glad
They spoke
Of empty meadows
Ideas that aren't bad
They spoke of you

Why are you so lonely
Lonesome valley droning
Aphasia
No one hears her moaning
Lonesome valley droning
Aphasia

You spoke
Of lonesome rivers
Drifting words you say
You spoke
Of weeping willows
Singing branches sway
You spoke of you

I can't pick you up

To say your name is a memory game
That you can't win for the life of you

Somatically there but you're gone
Track Name: Slad
Charlie can here me
From under the bathroom
Chard's indicating
All that we feared
Strapped to a chair
Pour me some coffee please

Taking a picture
Phone to a sunset
Lifting the lens
Between you and the sky
To show your friends
What are they missing now

I might as well just relive it online
Can you believe it's you
Things happen to

I can remember the days of the landline
People they called and they meant what they said
"Im on my way"
"I changed my mind"

Charlie can here me
From under the bathroom
Chard's indicating
All that we feared
Strapped to a chair
Pour me some coffee please

I might as well just relive it online
Can you believe it's you
Things happen to
Track Name: It's Time to Fade Away
It's time to fade away

And it's rude
This feeling blue
And it's all up to you
And the things you do

No one's here to stay

And it's rued
Your attitude
Does not improve
The things you do

It's time to fade away

And it's true
Your attitude
It does not soothe
Your chip of tooth

No one's here to stay

There's a slew
Of things to do
To transmute
To move to move
Track Name: Out of Doors
I tend to make things harder than they are
Seems so close but it's taken way too far
Carry me carry me carry me

Find a way on to a rooftop space
One more look and I can leave this place
Carry me carry me carry me

Step on the gas make it my past / I made a song for you all
The garden inside is out of doors / From what I feel from my window
How many windows trace my time / I'm coming down from my tower
Once in a while to check my time / Amid the garbage and flowers

How many windows trace my time / In wide water sits my crimes
