Altamesa’s New Frontier
“The New West” christens elaborate single series
DAILY Music  February 16, 2018, by Kevin Curtin
"...While Charles’ transformation from rock band fixture in the Daze, Sweet Nuthin’, and Happen-Ins to a lone troubadour was evidenced in 2016’s four-star debut The Long Ride Home, the new material arrives as a more cohesive partnership with Happen-Ins guitarist/singer Sean Faires. Each new single includes a painting by Faires as well as one-sixth of the sequential narrative..."

Off the Record
Gimme shelter: Red Eyed Fly's 10-year anniversary, the Happen-Ins' Southern harmony, and HAAM Benefit Day.
Music Column  September 25, 2009, by Austin Powell
"..."If I had to say two words to describe us," pauses Sean Faires, the fire-cracking singer/guitarist for the Happen-Ins, "it'd be rhythm and fuzz." The newly minted local quartet, pearl snaps and cowboy boots all around, demonstrates a cocksure swagger to fill out its collective bell-bottoms, a simmering cauldron of Texas roadhouse raunch and brown sugar boogie. It's a combination of chemistry and credentials: Faires and bassist John Michael Schoepf led the Dedringers, drummer Paul Valdez kept time for the Harlem Orchestra, and guitarist Ricky Ray Jackson fronted Lomita (see "Gilded Palace of Sin," April 27, 2007) and moonlights in Brothers and Sisters..."

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..."

The Happen-Ins
Music Review  May 21, 2015, by Michael Toland
"...Bookends, opener "Truth" polishes a roiling blues grind, while the penultimate "Caged Beast" perfects snotty dub & roll. In between, singer/guitarists Sean Faires and Ricky Ray Jackson never settle for simple Glimmer Twins knockoffs, not when they can add Big Star harmonies to "Pillow Talk," hard rock muscle to "Ruby Red Lips," and a psychedelic slink to "You Know I'm Right." Slashes in their axes, slurry swivel to their hips, the Happen-Ins remain ragged but right...."

Back in wax
Music Review  March 5, 2010, by Austin Powell
"...To borrow a line from Jack White's Raconteurs, the Happen-Ins are consolers of the lonely. The local quartet's self-titled debut, currently making the rounds on vinyl, shackles the roots flair of singer/guitarist Sean Faires' short-lived Dedringers (the pedal-steel-accented "You've Been Bad" and "Don't Look Back") with the unabashed, Rolling Stones swagger of guitarist Ricky Ray Jackson's Lomita ("Do It," "Cross Your Heart")..."

Much Ado About Nothing
With Shakespearean language tripping off their contemporary tongues, the actors are more than game for Joss Whedon's informal, black-and-white take on this classic comedy.

Unbelievable Summers at the Paramount
The most unforgettable moments from this year’s classics of cinema
Screens Story  May 17, 2018, by Chronicle staff
"...Then, for 100 seconds – an eternity on film! – we watch him walk down dark, deserted London streets, accompanied only by an orchestral reprise of "Feed the Birds." It's an extraordinary break in this funny, busy picture, a quiet and contemplative one showing us not just a dramatic shift in Banks' character (due to the subtle artistry of actor David Tomlinson), but a shift in the axis of the film, revealing that it isn't about instructing the children but redeeming their dad. A silent stroll that transforms your view of the whole movie – now, that's magic. – Robert Faires..."
