Avant-pop doesn’t quite cut it with Johannesburg-via-Doncaster multi-instrumentalist Skinny Pelembe, although his LP Dreaming Is Dead Now masterfully balances the tightrope between multivalent experimentalism and a choice ear for melody (pop-obscurantist might be more fitting). ‘Gonna Buy a Car Today’ is a magical realist tale of small pleasures, while ‘No Blacks, No Dogs, No Irish’ matches state of the nation politics with hazy UK bass signposting. Blissed out, or burned out?
