Futeisha is Juan Scassa (guitarist of La Piramide di Sangue and collaborator of Craxi Driver, Krano, Gianni Giublena Rosacroce and others).

About the tape:

"Ever wondered what David Lynch’s soundtracks would sound like if they came from Italy? Well, true believer, wonder no more! Futeisha [...] has composed the most Lynchian of odes to all manner of weirdness, bubbling like clear, refreshing water from the freshest springs throughout the country"
Ryan Masteller, Cassettegods

"It is a wonderful album, full of personality and charisma; it takes the listener to the sunny countryside of the Mediterranean, albeit a countryside haunted by the ghosts of years gone by."
Andy Uzzell, Dayz of purple and orange

"Scassa ama comunque arpeggiare in modo insistito e senza troppi fronzoli, di certo memore, date le sue origini, di un peculiare spleen tutto sudamericano"
Maurizio Inchignoli, The New Noise

"Rhythmen von tribaler Gangart, die den noisigeren German Army ebenso ähneln wie einer imaginären Stammestradition, werden zum Fundament und Schrittmacher einer verwunschenen Gitarrenmelodie, die ärgerlichen leeren Räume zwischen den filigranen Pickings und den Taktschlägen werden bald ausgefüllt von einem warmen, mediterranen Akkordeon."
Uwe Schneider,

"Alegrìas Y Duelos De Mi Alma è la storia di una fine narrata da undici tracce suonate a mezzogiorno con un caldo vento scirocco che sfiora la pelle mentre, in lontananza, si avvistano nuvole basse, scure, presagio di tempesta."
The Breakfast jumpers

"This work is a mixture of tender and warm sounds and melodies from the most original latin tradition rearranged thanks to digital, tribal drums and ambient sounds tending to their most droning soundscapes."
Nicola Orlandino,
