«"The times, they are a-changin'". The new musical outfit of Daniel Catarino (also known as Landfill) brings dust to our footsteps and its consequent footprints. It may not be deliberate but the first of the two volumes from this new adventure carries the smell and feel of Ry Cooder. Throughout its six chapters, Daniel Catarino builds a sand map, drawing richly detailed landscapes. Long Desert Cowboy is, so to speak, a landscape architect who respects the immediate in spite of the project at hand. In "Bee 7" he still walks in the land of dreams (crossed by messages from unidentified beings) and imagination, but from "$$$" onwards, Daniel Catarino puts his foot outside and delivers five moments of rare beauty: to that end he uses guitars in distant lands, keyboards and sounds snatched from real life. Here and from the beginning to the end of 'Sandshoes', this is the vision of deep western America from the perspective of a portuguese. A trip worth taking.» - André Gomes

Reviews:

«O que torna este álbum especial para mim é pessoal, mas certamente que alguma da música melhor produzida não consegue transmitir um décimo da emoção de 'Face in the Sand', com as suas guitarras sujas e mal cuidadas. Parabéns.»

«Chez les portugais de test tube les sorties se suivent à un rythme régulier mais ne se ressemblent pas toutes forcément. La sortie numéro 95 intitulée "Sandshoes" est l'œuvre de Daniel Catarino, connu aussi sous le nom de Landfill, qui s’essaie ici à un projet en deux parties (la seconde étant la sortie "tube96") dans lequel il laisse libre court à son imagination pour donner vie à une bande son liée à l’ambiance western, aux vastes étendues désertiques. Avec guitare et claviers, il construit un album en six mouvements, aux reliefs changeants avec un aspect ambient (avec nappes de guitares saturées) qui s’affirme au fur et à mesure que l’album avance et qui laisse ainsi préfigurer la seconde partie du projet.»

«Em breve nota de prova, mencionei há dias o tube'96, e, distraidamente passei como cão por vinha vindimada pelo volume anterior, e que com aquele faz par, o EP Sandshoes (tube'95). É o trabalho do artista português Long Desert Cowboy, aka Landfill, aka Daniel Catarino, uma das minhas mais recentes e interessantes descobertas no que à produção lusa de música invulgar diz respeito. A melhor maneira de desfrutar destes cenários que misturam fábulas de um certo oeste imaginário, com o da nossa própria imaginação, e de os pôr a dialogar proficuamente, é ouvir os dois volumes de seguida e repetir a façanha tantas vezes quantas a mente pedir. Há qualquer coisa de irresistível neste novo electro-psicadelismo. Parabéns ao Daniel Catarino e ao Pedro Leitão, da test tube.»
