Soon you have the feeling that you have reviewed almost every one of the 28,482,429 similar postrock bands. You do Condre Scr wrong, but the band has been active for more than seven years. She released her first EP "Jan Marsen" in 2006 under her own distribution. Tobias Siebert, who produced Kettcar, Phillip Boa and Sometree among others, is responsible for the finishing of her first longplayer. Before the spherical This Will Destroy You drifted into drony realms, they sounded similar to the Berliners. They focus on spherical compositions with a melancholic touch. Loud guitar bursts use them rather as a loosening stylistic device. Clean guitars dominate. Delay effect devices the band apparently loves idolatrously. A unique selling proposition will be searched for in vain at Condre Scr. But those whose ears are open for well staged postrock should not miss the band on their current mini tour. Genre fans won't find any entangled puzzles on "You Are Genius", but an atmospheric mosaic of crystal-clear ambiences.
