AllMusic Review by

The Sandy Dirt project pairs Al Larsen of Some Velvet Sidewalk with the regular cast of the Pastels (Stephen, Aggi, and Katrina), and the results -- mellow, strummy pop topped with shimmering guitar touches -- falls very much in line with Mobile Safari-era Pastels. It's easy to feel that Larsen's involvement only brings down the Pastels (whose work typically outshines that of Some Velvet Sidewalk), but given the sporadic and largely inconsistent output of the Scottish band, Sandy Dirt should prove valuable to fans of both projects.
