Tristeza "Paisajes" in stores NOW
Paisajes is an album of sound, color and textures brought to height
by 13 years of perseverance & creative inventiveness, eliciting
admirers along a quest to hone their creation of sound and feeling.
Tristeza pride themselves on the conveying and execution of such
sensations. 9 new pieces presented to listeners from a comforting
maternal like source. Providing playfulness, beauty and curiosity along
a path of confident mellifluous exploration.
Tristeza seems to have (consciously and/or unconsciously) decided
to deliver the listener something both mysterious and vivid, a feat not
easy to achieve. They took no shortcuts to get there, paying their dues
in so many ways where most bands would have tossed in the towel. Pulling
through feats of distance, parenthood and new members has never been
easy. Through all this the main structural pillar always remained in
tack. Guitar, Bass and Drums. Because of this dedicated foundation, a
subtle rise to various rewards was made possible. Theres a common thread
running throughout Tristeza's cosmos of sound, something previous
patrons will find soothing and enjoyable to revisit, but with Paisajes,
they will have new fruition of dynamics to suckle... A symmetrical web
of creative ideas and new sounds are explored with Paisajes, all with
Additions of vibraphone, violin and stealthy placed horns weave
your ears in and around a silky network of sounds. All realized in the
analog and without computer modeling. Tristeza tip hats respectively to
an eclectic survey of influences along the ride but maintain their own
fortitude while doing so. Sounds turn and congeal like a vintage
kaleidoscope, morphing shapes & sounds from a nostalgic culmination
of yesteryears and their own prospective harmony. Each twist loosens
patterns of trancelike interlacing guitars akin to Spacemen 3, Felt or
late period Talk Talk & early Durutti Column. Bass and rhythmic
patterns influenced by Nigerian Afro Funk, Latin Cumbia & 60's /
70's German Kraut grooves. Delicate sounds celebrate their freedom and
dance along their sidewalk in the sky.
Sonically and creatively one of the most refreshing and
therapeutic albums of recent years.Tristeza lay out a scenic landscape
(paisajes) and politely invite us all to get lost inside...
