GUM — no relation to the website you’re reading — is the project of Tame Impala/Pond sideman Jay Watson. As Pitchfork reports, he’ll release his second album Glamorous Damage next month. It’s preceded by album opener “Anesthetized Lesson,” a liquid psych-funk song that imagines what Currents might have sounded like with a more playful, cartoonish streak. Press play below to indulge in Thriller synth lines and body-moving groove; you can also watch an album trailer.
Glamorous Damage is out 11/13 on Spinning Top.
