Xetas
Music Review  May 25, 2017, by Kevin Curtin
"...In the same way a recent breakup dupes your ears into believing that every pop tune is about your erstwhile lover, the social climate of 2017 tempts interpretation of any punk song as a Molotov hurled at Trump Tower. That Mordor-like skyscraper graces Xetas' sophomore LP art, a tarot-framed image of the building jolted by lightning as rats plummet toward the sewer..."

The Austin Music Scene's Spectrum of Sexism

Music Story  January 19, 2017, by Libby Webster
"...Kana Harris, Xetas bassist and Foreign Mothers guitarist, made her own call-out post on social media years ago after being sexually assaulted by someone she had once considered a friend, a fellow musician in a popular local band. Foreign Mothers was new on the scene and Harris felt unsure of who to turn to...."

Free Week Live Shots
Beerland, Jan. 4
Music Story  January 12, 2017, by Libby Webster
"...Xetas, a trio that's never met a sound system it didn't eviscerate, wove in new cuts from a forthcoming sophomore album, which sounded poised to deliver the same salient, throttling noise as 2015's The Redeemer. "The Gaze," equal parts vulnerability and rage, found bassist Kana Harris taking aim at street harassment, while "The Body" skews hard and fast..."

"...South, I hung out one night at the instantly popular Radio Coffee & Beer on Manchaca, which opened last month. Acts unknown to me also revealed themselves, including punk trio Xetas, co-fronted by ex-Foreign Mothers leader Kana Harris, and Wrenfro, which features Fastball's Tony Scalzo and Soulhat's Kevin McKinney...."

Borzoi
Music Review  September 27, 2018, by Tim Stegall
"...Webster's defines borzoi as "any of a breed of large dogs developed in Russia especially for pursuing wolves ... Called also Russian wolfhound," and traces its etymology to "swift." Parts of A Prayer for War quicken, but this local trio's first full-length, produced with remarkable clarity by Ian Rundell (Xetas, Spray Paint, Exhalants), excels at post-punk musical brutality..."

Live Music to See This Weekend
Unpacking Christmas in July
DAILY Music  July 14, 2017, by The Music Staff
"...On the big stage outside, local trio Xetas’ jarring noise pairs with Flesh Lights’ melodic, kinetic chaos, while Radioactivity and Bad Sports roar proto-punk and power-pop, both bands beloved Austin-by-way-of-Denton staples. The indoor bill doubles as a tour kickoff for garage quartet Unknown Relatives, with Pretty Shitty spewing wild, reckless punk and Super Thief playing on the heels of brutal new LP Stuck..."
