Music: Skin Lies – “Proto-Threnody In Dub”

Where Dustin Krcatovich’s last release as Skin Lies, the marvelous cassette Stimulus Regression, had an air of doom to it, Troubled For Life, his latest missive (at least the one track from it that we’ve been gifted), is far lighter in spirit…to a point. While this kicks off with some frosty synth lines glinting from the speakers, things slowly, methodically get a little warped and dark. By the end, you’re not sure what direction the song is going to turn, either skidding into some sonic murk or easing up on the throttle and coasting to a soft landing. Either way, I’m definitely ready to go along for the ride.
