Nedry

Condors

(Monotreme; US: 20 Apr 2010; UK: Import)

It was only a matter of time before Dubstep started to seep into the world of art rock. Enter Condors, Nedry’s first proper full-length on the vastly underrated British indie Monotreme Records. It builds upon the momentum started by Thom Yorke’s The Eraser, and brings that energy into a sonic territory that’s like imagining the result of Massive Attack recording for the Hyperdub label. Though it features just eight songs in just more than 25 minutes, Condors is an impressive document from an innovative new trio that has the BBC buzzing.
