Altamesa Maps Lone Star Existentialism on Sophomore Stunner Idol Frontier
Evan Charles and Sean Faires brave the myth of the Southwest
Music Story  February 7, 2019, by Kevin Curtin
"...The ensuing full-length of the same title, patient, deep-thinking Americana that earned a four-star rave in the Chronicle, served as a troubadour turn for then-26-year-old Evan Charles, who formerly fronted pure, homegrown rock & roll acts the Sweet Nuthin and the Daze. Producer Jonas Wilson, keen on the Austin native's distinct voice and poetic lyrics, all but dragged Charles into the studio to document a subdued DIY vision on the order of Leonard Cohen's Songs From a Room...."

Playback: Altered States
Three Austin artists that are changing their tune
Music Column  March 31, 2016, by Kevin Curtin
"..."Most country records suck, and most Americana records around here are boring," shrugs Douglas, who debuts the new project live at Sidewinder on Friday. "We went in with the premise of making a country record as an indie band and being cocky about it, like, 'Yeah, we don't do this music, but our record's gonna be better than yours!'" Evan Charles Goes Solo..."

Altamesa Album Review
Idol Frontier (Frontera Del Sueno)
Music Story  February 7, 2019, by Doug Freeman
"...The Southwest horns swerving opening opus "The New West" set a scene of desolation, looking at hinterlands not as possibility but rather as opportunity wasted ("The new West is a ghost town of dreams already dreamt"). Calexico hangs heavy in tone at the outset, with Evan Charles' sleepy vocals and Sean Faires' cinematic guitar licks sharing the same ambivalent desert explorations as Joey Burns and John Convertino..."

Music Review  May 12, 2016, by Alejandra Ramirez
"...Consider Evan Charles a musician's musician amongst the eclectic Austin scene. Helping populate a plethora of local acts including day-trippers the Daze, basement grinders the Sweet Nuthin, and R&B jammers the Happen-Ins, the singer here immerses himself in folk and Americana as if he and his new backing trio Altamesa were born to it..."

Playback: Ramsay Midwood Buys the Bar
Ramsay Midwood co-acquires Sam's Town Point, record store news, and Spoon teases upcoming Matador Records LP.
Music Column  January 12, 2017, by Kevin Curtin
"...When Wally Grossman perished in a motorcycle accident in 2011, Midwood's condolences to Penny and offer to cancel the evening concert was met with her telling him, "The show must go on." That rings true now as Midwood helps continue the legacy of the 31-year-old bar with music most nights of the week. Saturday brings platinum-voiced country singer Lucas Hudgins, Thursday loads Fingerpistol, and next Friday lights up Wild Bill's "Joint at the Point" series featuring Carson McHone, Evan Charles, and eight other Austin songwriters...."

X-Men: Days of Future Past
Diverting but rarely riveting, this latest offering from the Marvel Universe kicks the can down the road some more.
Film Review  May 23, 2014, by Kimberley Jones
"...So how does Days of Future Past fare? It has its moments, though nothing here approaches the emotional sock in the jaw of Jean Grey’s self-sacrifice, or that bullet to Charles Xavier’s spine, or, more to the point, the way mutants’ few options – live a closeted life or risk being hunted down for being different – resonated with gay viewers, an analogy the first X-Men movies made movingly. (And progressively: Anti-bullying messages and the push for gay marriage were barely part of the cultural conversation back then, let alone national rallying cries.) Which is all to say: Comic-book movies have the capability of being a lot more than just two air-conditioned hours of snazzy special effects...."

Feast of Love
Robert Benton directs this Oregon-set meditation on the permutations of love among a constellation of characters.
Film Review  October 5, 2007, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Retaining some of the flavor of the community of voices he fashioned in 1994's Nobody's Fool, director Benton keeps the story moving forward through its tenuous social connections. The script by Allison Burnett, based on a book by Charles Baxter, is another thing entirely, positing so many ridiculous coincidences, illogical occurrences, and sandpapered truths that this "feast" quickly becomes a veritable trough..."

Traffic Solutions at Sixth and Lamar
News Story  January 30, 1998, by Kevin Fullerton
"...Charles Russell, president of the West End Association and owner of the Pecan Street Emporium on Sixth, says the loss of onstreet parking and pedestrian access caused by the Fifth and Sixth Street tunnels would cause West Austin to deteriorate. "We're one of the few viable downtown areas that has residential areas and business areas together in harmony," says Russell, "and we're a thriving area, unlike downtown, which has very little shopping and very little residential area."..."
