English trio Nedry
(female vocalist and guitarist Ayu Okakita,
keyboardist and guitarist Chris Amblin,
keyboardist and guitarist Matt Parker)
blended laptop glitchy arrangements, irregular post-hop beats and
dreamy trip-hop ambience on the mini-album
Condors (On The Shelf, 2009), a collection of "songs" that were
not quite free-form but certainly non-narrative.
Okakita's Bjork-ian wails are hardly a plus
on the mellow pop-soul ballad Apples & Pears. It's when she shuts up
that the music truly soars, like in the
energetic, quasi-industrial Scattered.
In A Dim Light (Monotreme, 2012) was a longer (meaning "more filler")
version of the same album. On one hand fragile romantic melodies like
Violaceae, and on the other hand eccentric rhythmic instrumentals like
Havana Nights (on which the singer only breathes and moans).
