Dissmentado – The Best Of Dissmentado
Dissmentado was formed by Buenos Aires’ Ismael Pinkler (one half of Carisma) and Tromso, Norway-based Kompakt Records affiliate Máximo Graesse Bondino. Between 2006 and 2010 the pair recorded a trove of material during summer stays in BA and Autumnal jaunts to Tromso. The energy and excitement of these short, ripe meetings are imprinted in the resulting music, as well as the varied locations of their writing / recording - mostly friends’ houses and studios - a personal, historical tracing of friendship and creativity. Compiled into a Best Of by Huntles + Palmers, this album highlights their shared, auditory hallucination of sluggish cosmic jams. Structured around deep-current beats layered with shimmering guitars, intuitive bass-playing and warm keys singing memorable melodies; the upshot is a distinctly romantic, psychedelic saunter achieved effortlessly and useful for both dance floor ascension and comedown.
