Teebs – E S T A R A

A needle skipping across a dusty 45, loose change rattling in a laundromat dryer, birds chirping across an empty urban lot, the hum of a distant fluorescent light bulb. These sounds, or ones very much like them, are just some that Mtendere Mandowa, or Teebs, samples on E S T A R A. Having first sustained his move to southern California (where he developed his production under Brainfeeder boss Flying Lotus) by crate-digging classics for subsequent visual projects, Teebs has never lost that sense of aesthetic rejuvenation. Pulling from his existence within the more organic corners of LA’s urban decay, here, on his 12-track sophomore LP, he’s crafted a piece that showcases the bliss that can be found in even the most turbulent environments.
