Teebs’ castoffs are better than most producers’ finest efforts.  Released on the Brainfeeder beatmakers Tumblr, the origins of “Pretty Poly” trace to a mix that J Rocc did for Dublab. Flipping what is presumably a cover of the traditional folk song “Pretty Polly” (maybe the Incredible String band version?), Teebs submerges it into his breezy wind chime aesthetic. The man has a gift for making anything sound organic, electronic music as filtered through oxygen, dirt, and gravity. Solar powered soul music. It might be the corniest thing in the world to say, but sometimes you just have to say it: this is a beautiful song.
