As Gum Takes Tooth, the duo Thomas Fug and Jussi Brightmore plot an adventurous, idiosyncratic, and willfully unpredictable journey. They formed in East London in 2009 with wild gigs across the local underground music and arts scene. Now marrying an unflinching, beat-driven assault to a questing and transformative vision, their fourth album, “Recovery Position”, marks a clean slate for them.
Recalibrating their signature enmeshing of drums and electronics, they landed on a propulsive, all-electronic delivery that stubbornly eschews genre constraints. The result is their most unique and potent work to date, simultaneously the most pop-adjacent and their most extreme.
