Editorial Reviews

Reissue. Tristeza's second full-length recording has been until now hard to find and is the band's most accomplished and beautiful recording to date. Members of Tristeza have also played in The Locust, Crimson Curse, Gogogo Airheart and The Swing Kids. This album encompasses a dual barrage of blissful yet complex guitar arrangements reinforced by heavy funk-laden bass sounds. Violin assistance by Bobby Conn & his bandmates

Awesome and wonderful. Tristeza are a very special band from San Diego. This second album goes even further beyond their also fantastic first release. Dreamy and hypnotic rock instrumentals, beautifully crafted, that flow and flow. Just to give you an idea, imagine the Cocteau Twins playing Tortoise covers, or Aerial M jamming with Brian Eno and King Tubby...Well, I hate comparisons, non-stop playing it since I bought it last week, and getting better and better. Don't loose time reading this review, go and get it!

Meditative and substantial. NOT new age or Windham Hilly as some have charged. Soundtrack to an imaginary Hal Hartley film. In legion with Pell Mell, Tortoise sorta, Lanterna, Arovane, Raybeats, Tangerine Dream, Rothko. Vocals absent like a phantom limb. Nectarine Dream. Lyrical sans lyrics. Dance while you read.

Tristeza's releases this sparkling jewel after their amazing debut on Makato Recordings "Spine and Sensory". The band consists only of instrumental perfection and beauty nothing else. Picture in your mind/ears lush melodic guitars intertwining - melting into one another, solid full deep bass guitar, crisp clear intricate drums, a layer of ethereal keyboards floating over the mix, etc. The music is much more than that of precise tones mixed with perfect rhythym...they come to represent an undescribale feeling.. one of bliss and passion. Perfect for those depressed moods when your bottle of prozac is empty. If you like anything in vein of mogwai (matador records), tortoise (thrill jockey), aurore rien (sunseasky productions-amazing band, check them out as well)godspeed you black emperor (kranky), paul newman (trance syndicate), appleseed cast (deep elm - new material) then this is must for you. My advice, make it your next purchase.

Jimmy LaValle (also of The Album Leaf) and his cohort, Christopher Sprague, have created yet another intricate guitar masterpiece. The melodic basslines and beautiful keyboards, combined with the warm, gentle sound of the guitars, make this instrumental release another success for Tristeza. Plus, this full-length is readily available -- unlike previous Tristeza recordings that are either out of print or just hard to track down. Excellent.

This cd is just too much to describe in pure words. Which is probably the reason this band consists only of instrumental perfection and beauty. Picture in your mind and ears lush melodic guitars intertwined, solid bass, crisp clear drums, a layer of sparse keyboards, etc. The songs are much more than that of tones mixed with rhythym...they represent an undescribable feeling.. one of bliss and happiness, it makes me very happy when I'm feeling kind of down and unhappy. If you like anything in vein of mogwai, tortoise, godspeed you black emperor, paul newman, red stars theory...this must for certan be your next purchase..my advice go buy it now..or you'll be sorry!

I have been fortunate enough to see Tristeza perform in the living room of a friend's house, and fell hopelessly in love with their sound on the spot. Never before have I witnessed 5 musicians on stage, each one with his eyes closed. The somnombulistic sound will lull you into the most wonderful dream...I promise you won't want to wake up.

I was introduced into Tristeza just a couple of days ago. Having enjoyed The Album Leaf, where their Jimmy LaValle currenly plays, it is no surprise that I found Tristeza's "Dream Signals in Full Circles" highly enjoyable. They sound very similar. Think mellower Mogwai, and you're pretty close to the sound of these guys.

Though I wasn't terribly impressed with the drum work (the only reason I gave it 4.5 stars), the rest of the instrumentation (there's no vocals in here) is lovely. The album can take you on a journey of self-discovery if you let it. The music goes in certain circles, much like the cover of the album or the title, almost reaching a minimalist state at times, though not quite.

Grab a copy and play it over and over again... you will love it too.

I have to say this cd is quite good. I am a big Album Leaf fan, but Tristeza definately has more of an authentic sound. Beautiful hooks that never get old and inspiring melodies dominate the theme to this album. I recommend it. Perfect "deep thought" music. If you enjoyed this album I also recommend "Spine and Sensory" which is a bit different, but along the same realm....
