New millennial song constructionist and studio savant KONRAD finally surfaces with his debut electronic pop opus, LOOSE CANYONS.
Konrad is just one of many different musical personas employed by studio savant/song constructionist Jeffrey Konrad. In the past he's recorded as an 8-bit obsessed electronic musician by the name of Robot USA, an emo indie rocker known as eggspout, and a folksy singer/songwriter called "Nigel Jeffrey" who cut an album titled Struggle in the Hive with Patrick Stolley of Marlboro Chorus and Daytrotter.com. And those are just his "official" credentials, he's also released dozens of underground mix tapes and collaborated on a countless number of other projects with musicians from across the globe.
Now he's dropping his full-length solo debut as Konrad called Loose Canyons; a seeming amalgamation of all his past and present musical personalities all mashed into one meticulously produced package. Combining the old school synth sounds of Devo, the ironic b-boy style of Dan Deacon and the sardonic wit of Hot Chip, Konrad is poised to be the underground electro-indie sensation of 2008.
WHAT: Debut full-length titled Loose Canyons
WHEN: August 19th (street date) August 19th (radio add date)
WHERE: iTunes, CD Baby, RadicalTurf.com, KonradMusic.net
WHY: An infectious collection of songs that sound like they were created by the love child of Mark Mothersbaugh and Dan Deacon.
