GUM, the solo project of Tame Impala/POND multi-instrumentalist Jay Watson just released ‘Anesthetized Lesson.’ Half disjointed pop, half whacked out laughing gas experience, the single is the first sonic escapade off his second LP Glamorous Damage due out November 13th via Spinning Top Music.

The self-prophesising ‘Anesthetized Lesson’ transports the listener to a funk-drenched hyper reality. A diverse group of vocal manipulations and synths materialise around the landscape of the song, which plays with colours and textures that appear blissfully out of reach. 

Glamorous Damage follows GUM’s debut LP Delorean Highway which amassed nearly 450K SoundCloud plays and included the spaced-out rendition of Genesis hit ‘Misunderstanding.’ The debut, which landed a coveted spot on the 2014 AMP longlist, was hailed for its psych-pop manipulations and evocations of an eccentric journey through another world.
