«What kind of feeling puts together the barren solitude of Sergio Leone's western spaghettis and the ultra heavy suspense of David Lynch's complex dramas? Living in Alentejo may have something to do with it, but Daniel Catarino's own life experiences and close contact with a deserted inland are most likely the paint in the canvas, or the roll in the camera, if you wish.

From 'Western Spaghetti' and 'Sandshoes' to this new work 'Finareia' something changed, and for the better. If Long Desert Cowboy's thick ambient collages borrowed something from Ry Cooder before, they've done the same with Angelo Badalamenti this time, Lynch's favorite soundtrack composer. If you swap the redwood pines for the desert cactus, most of the ambients created here are very reminiscent of Twin Peaks. And in a way, they carry the same dramatic narrative, only to be broken into pieces as soon as you hear Clint Eastwood's 'Blondie' talking to his villainous partner.

Highly suggestive track names like 'Spitting on a dead fascist', 'Hang my gun up in the wall' or 'Hanging a cow by the neck' complete the task of creating the perfect ambient for the listener to dive into, closing his eyes and picturing himself inside a David Lynch movie. Get this now!» - Pedro Leitão

Reviews:

«Ontem falou-se muito de Long Desert Cowboy. E bem.
Enquanto espreitávamos a curta-metragem “Virga“, do neo-zelandês Ben Spink, filme com banda sonora de Long Desert Cowboy, fomos apanhados na corrente por mais uma edição deste via Test Tube. Depois de editado já este ano “Handmade Music 1999-2003″ (MiMi Records, 2008), Daniel Catarino regressa com “Finareia”, um novo e interessante EP de sete temas. “Finareia”, ou como estar dois passos à frente de “Western Spaghetti” e “Sandshoes“, também editados pela mesma Test Tube. Um passo pelo afinar sonoro e estético que representa, e um outro, pela fina areia que ficou depois de filtrado o grosso  do areal - o resultado final. Ficam os ambientes fortemente  cinematográficos, ambíguos, distantes, os quadros imaginários que o nosso pensamento fantasioso há-de ir pintando. Devagar.
Excelente regresso de Long Desert Cowboy.»
