While I’m not one for post-modern electronica, People Skills, also known as Jesse Dewlow, is something a little different. The intentionally abrasive sounds make for some interesting, challenging listening, and Pogradec Embankment 1 is no different.
The track is the opening number from Gunshots at Crestridge, a new 4-track EP set for release in 2016. It’s biting, raw, and just deep enough to keep you listening. While there is the hint of a hook in the track, it’s being used to add a little something extra, rather than holding the track together. It’s clear that this piece took some serious effort on Skills’ part, and it shines through well.
Oh, and in case you were wondering, Pogradec is a town in Albania!
