(Newser) – Kassin+2's Futurismo is a superb summer album, writes Chandler Levack in Spin. The trend-setting Brazilian trio mixes "samba, airy folk, and sheer mysticism" to wrap up their album trilogy in fine fashion. Notable tracks include "Pra Lembrar," which "floats on soft keys," and "Samba Machine," with a blazing electric guitar. The Tropicália band—Alexandre Kassin, plus Moreno Veloso and Domenico Lancellotti—hails from Rio de Janeiro.
