Konrad is the American song constructionist Jeffrey Konrad who puzzles together his unique brand of vocal poetics with a sorted sonic DNA that exhibits strains of indie, folk and electro. In the past he's recorded as an experimental electronica musician known as 'Robot USA' as well as a folksy singer-songwriter called 'Nigel Jeffrey'. In mid-2000 Konrad launched Radical Turf Records; an imprint founded with the intent of releasing compilation albums by underground electronic artists. 3 compilations and 2 full lengths later, the label continues to evolve as a medium for eclectic and eccentric audio.
