CONRAD - Veering from hook-filled indie rock to swirling dream pop, Conrad's alt-pop-twang is atmospheric and poetic. Their lyrics deal with revolutionaries and love, moving from personal introspection to the current political landscape with edgy ease. Comprised of singer/songwriter Larry Lechner, guitarist Mark Eddy, Adrian Popple on bass, vocals and keyboards, and Marc L'Esperance on drums, Conrad delivers "richly textured jangly pop" (Queue Magazine) journey. "Quirky and clever&sad coolness&will appeal to anyone who actually listens to lyrics." Discorder songs that to cautious twang. http://www.conradmusic.com
