$ 16.00 Album
On Teeth & Tongue's fourth album, Give Up on Your Health, Jess Cornelius has crafted kitchen-sink dramas and relationship vignettes that follow a lineage from Ken Loach through Jarvis Cocker. As the New Zealand-born, Melbourne-based songwriter explains, in the past I've written personal material, but this album is more about observation. I was reading essays by [American poet] Eileen Myles and she has this stream-of-consciousness style, no filter.

Their last album, Grids, released in 2014 by Dot Dash Remote Control, was named RRR Album of the Week and Double J Feature Album, and led to appearances at Meredith Music Festival, Boogie,White Night, MONA and NGV Friday Nights, and was nominated for three The Age Music Victoria awards.

Teeth & Tongue has performed at SXSW and CMJ, appeared on Rockwiz several times, played the Falls and Laneway festivals, toured the USA and Europe, and once spent four weeks making an EP in public at the National Gallery of Victoria. 2015 saw the band tour nationally with Courtney Barnett and Jess was invited to participate in the Nes Artist Residency in North Iceland, where she wrote material for the new record.
