I usually keep my love for music separate from my site, but when I saw the beautiful artwork for the highly anticipated second full length album from Teebs I couldn't not share it with you. Teebs is a skater, artist, a signature member of Flying Lotus' LA-based record label Brainfeeder, and someone who I've been an avid follower of for quite some time. Basically, he's one of those dudes who's seemingly good at just about everything he loves. Hate those guys.
Although Teebs visited a handful of beautiful studios in the hills of Los Angeles in the process of creating Estara, he ended up back in his modest bedroom studio and the same Fruity Loops-based set-up that he's been using for years. This is where the record takes its name from.
Similarly to his music, Teebs' artwork is an undeniable representation of his life at that particular moment. In contrast to Adour, his first full-length album that came together during a difficult time in his life, Estara was created during a period of relative calm. You can see this just by his use of colour. I would say the same for the music itself, but I've chosen not to listen to it digitally and wait for the record to arrive. If Ardour or Collections 01 were anything to go by, I'm not the least bit worried. I'll probably crack and stream it this evening. I have minimal amounts of self control with things I've waited so long for.
You can buy the album here.
