Samt und Stein by Velvet condom

The music of Berlin duo Velvet condom is described as a fastidiously gesticulating grind of snapping synthesiser presets, gloomy guitars, droll role-playing, and the sort of casually arch desperation you might expect from twenty-somethings weaned on a steady diet of Kraftwerk, Suede, Ennio Morricone, Brian Eno, and the Sex Pistols. The sonic worlds Nicolas Isner (vocals/guitars/keyboards) and Oberst Panizza (programming/keyboards) built on 2008’s sinister Safe & Elegant and last year’s pulsing Stadtgeil teem with metronomic clang, tumbling disco rhythms, and Freon cool.
