Justinuff This is liquid desert!! A bubbling brook of harmonious fuzz and distilled oasis meditation. Soothe the soul and transport the mind!!

Michael Reilly Stoner rock with deep, slow grooves and a genuine sense of place. The dry desert heat from the cover image spiritually permeates these tracks – it's a real, tactile and desirable element. Expressive vocals and an attentive production style add to the quality. Great stuff. Favorite track: Ash.

StazionSpaziaal777 The desert. The heat dissipating, while mind is in mystical and ethereal mirages. A fantastic job.

I had the fortune to meet in person the Tuna de Tierra and are awesome guys. Favorite track: El Paso de la Tortuga.

Héctor Hurtado Grooscors If you want to know what I think of this amazing release just check Bucky Brown's words. I agree 100% with him.

Bucky This is fantastic. Such a tranquil blend of desert rock hooks with tribal psychedelic meanderings. Vocals are strong, groove is deep and the vibe is refreshing. Looking forward to more material. I keep coming back to this over and over.

Tuna de Tierra Naples, Italy

Sounds from the desert, sand at the sunset, intolerable warm atmospheres, lysergic air and twisted hallucinations. Tuna de Tierra leaves for a trip with neither destination nor end, but just the purpose to move endlessly.
