http://www.danielcatarino.bandcamp.com LONG DESERT COWBOY is a solo project by portuguese musician Daniel Catarino, also from Oceansea, Landfill, Uaninauei, O Rijo, Bicho do Mato, etc.
LDC made its debut in 2007, with the simultaneous release of 2 EP's on netlabel Test Tube 'Sandshoes' and 'Western Spaghetti' were well accepted, with over 20.000 downloads in a couple of weeks, and very positive media reviews.
In 2008, a compilation of old songs was released on japanese/portuguese netlabel Mimi Records. 'Handmade Music 1999-2003' contained tape recordings back from 1999, along with some of Catarino's first recordings. Despite its raw sound, some of the songs included on 'Handmade Music 1999-2003' were included on the eteam movie 'Truth in Transit'. The song 'The Sun Fading Into Clouds' was also included on the compilation 'Spirits of Summer, Vol. 8' by netlabel Skeksis.
Still in 2008, Long Desert Cowboy released another EP, 'Finareia'. Featuring dialogues from Sergio Leone movies, 'Finareia' was darker than all previous releases, featuring mostly drones and ambient music. The reviews were even better than previous albums, and Long Desert Cowboy's music was becoming more cinematographic.
Due to several requests, Catarino decided to form a band, in order to build a live set for the project, featuring Luís Canudo (Seven Thousand) on drums, along with 3 guitars, played by Catarino himself, Luís Barata (also from Seven Thousand) and Hugo Gomes. The band played several shows in Portugal, featuring mostly unreleased songs, in what could be described as a western-spacerock experience, with images displayed over the music. The band refuses to use computers or synthesizers, which makes Long Desert Cowboy's music more powerful and rock-oriented live.
By the end of 2009, a new EP was released. 'Midnight Lullabies' features the only live session recorded by Catarino alone on June 18th, 2008, with titles inspired by Tom Waits' songs.
Long Desert Cowboy also provided music to the short movie 'Virga', by the new-zealander director Ben Spink. In 2010, Long Deserto Cowboy released a new album, "Symphony of the Deceased" is comprised of electronic pieces only, and all the titles to the songs are tributes to several dead artists. Long Desert Cowboy's new album "A Gunslinger's Galaxy" was released in May 1st, 2014.

Nette Stimmungs- bzw. Klangkompositionen, durch die man sich gerne mal interessiert durchhört. Wie ein kleines Abenteuer, aber das wars auch. Abenteuer kann man nur einmal durchleben, beim zweiten Mal wären es nämlich keine mehr...
I like your album. It was the perfect piece of the puzzle for my project.
As a filmmaker, I like to make short films and release them under the creative commons CC-BY-NC-SA license.
Here is the short film I just released. It includes two tracks of your album...
I put a link on this album from the facebook page of the film
В принципе, довольно ординарный drone ambient. Первые 2 трека мне показались несколько затянутыми, хотя всё равно хорошо пойдут как фоновая музыка. Третий трек несколько выделяется на фоне двух предыдущих - он короткий, чёткий и гипнотичный, представляет из себя зацикленную петлю, чем немного напомнил некоторые работы Бойда РайсаNON.
