Tristeza - Raise Your Gaze
Tristeza - Newbury

Around these parts (namely, my cramped, one bedroom apartment), instrumental outfit Tristeza are well known for crafting gorgeous, winding, almost stream-of-conciousness-type tracks that are absolutely delightful to drink numerous High Life tallboys to - and the newish album, Paisajes, is certainly no exception. Think upbeat (yet often deliriously melancholic as well), post-rock instrumental melodies, beautiful effect-laden atmospherics, and warm, drunken afternoons on a front porch with your equally lazy drinking buddies.
