Big fan of track two, 900 man.
Reminded me a bit of Kansas's "Magnum Opus" off their Leftoverture album. I don't know why since it's really not even close to the same, but it's definitely a good thing.
Album art, sweet dude!
So I audioscrobbled it as I listened, and then I thought I'd search for it on last.fm to see who else be listening to it now, and it turns out there's another 'QRS' band out there. And they apparently play girly-rock. That's okay, I also play girly-rock.
That got me thinking - is anyone stealing my name (or vice versa), and does anyone other than me and my five friends listen to me? So I did a search for Conrad - and oh boy Houston we have a problem. There's another Conrad out there - I guess that shouldn't come as much of a surprise. But its wiiiiieeerdd!! Now what am I gonna do? I can't find a website or contact info or anything for these folks. Are they still a band? WHO KNOWS?? The cd claimed to be release/available through Indie Pool, but indiepool.com doesn't list them anymore. This is a pickle.
Anyway, I like the two new songs, moreso #2. But I would say they're both a major step forward for you. A little bit longer than the others, and you're really playing with what the synth can do more than before... #1 has great pitch bend / portamento stuff, and #2 is sooo glitchy!! I love it. More glitch-rock.
#1 reminded me of being alone, but being totally okay with it. Being solitary, but not in a sad way. And looking at something like a grassy cliff next to the ocean or something.
#2 messed with my brain and my tapping toe but was very addictive.
