Free Basin’ Friday | Konrad – “Evil”

Friday, June 13th, 2014


We’re back this week with a special Father’s Day edition of Free Basin’ Friday! The prize is a copy of Ethereal Sequence’s reissue of Konrad – Evil. Recorded more than 25 years ago, the album is an odd collection of bedroom electropop that has since garnered cult status. The album has been restored from the original master tapes and includes a bonus 45 of three extremely rare tracks.


Since Father’s Day is right around the corner, we want you to name the top 3 “dad rock” (aka “birkenstock rock”) songs. Dad rock is defined as “the standard set of songs from the 60s and 70s that boomers habitually listen to. Boomers try to get younguns to listen to dad rock by loading up ‘best song ever’ lists with them. Dad rockers have no desire to listen to recent music and are stuck in the past.” The list that is the most spot-on wins! The winner will be notified next Friday via email.
