We also totally jubilant to have Gum Takes Tooth's new album Arrow' featured on The Quietus January roundup, this time for their 'Album of the Month' list:
'If we inhabited the best of all worlds, Arrow would be a stone-cold game changer for Gum Takes Tooth, such is its sheer muscular, psychedelic jouissance. It is a towering obelisk of impervious magnificence and timeless surety rising high above a roiling, acid sea of anxiety whipped up by the cultural collapse caused by western decline, eschatological panic and general 2019 quotidian fuckery. It is an album whose mere existence will make the seasoned listener stop in their tracks, look skyward and nod thankfully at a salmon pink and rosebud red sunset of fractal shapes. So many studio-focused groups have tried to do the drums and synths go psychedelic kraut metal disco thing in the past but damn near all of them have got lost, at one stage or other, down relatively sterile production and authenticity rabbit holes instead of just opening the fuck up on all channels and heading off into the unknown.'
