Album Review: Kissogram - 'Rubber And Meat'

Confused clubland synth-pop

With a foot on the dancefloor and a hand in the underpants drawer of Berlin’s clubland, the third LP from German synth-poppers Sebastian Dassé and Jonas Poppe comes off as a conflicted beast indeed. ‘The Deserter’ and the euphoric title track work surprisingly well, and ‘Backseat Of My Mind’ sounds like Daft Punk bumping helmets over a lascivious blues strut. But the scattergun approach renders this less coherent than Gordon Brown’s facial expressions in a YouTube address, and frankly, we’re not sure how to dance to that.
