The More You Learn About God, the Further Away from Him You Move
mewithoutYou frontman Aaron Weiss likes a good question, but finds some answers easier than others
DAILY Music  June 15, 2009, by Raoul Hernandez
"...Again, my parents didn’t teach me much in the way of doctrines or religious dogma, so for me it’s incredibly simple. My father told me the more you learn about God, the further away from him you move, so I’m content to know nuthin’..."

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...."

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..."

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..."

Pat Snow: Monologue
The exhibition weaves anecdotes into a story of the artist's life and also his creative range
Arts Review  May 2, 2014, by Caitlin Greenwood
"...Illustrative watercolor vignettes – quotes and quips spanning decades of Snow's notebooks, which provided the source material – cover an entire wall. The vague statements, such as "Just livin' the dream" and "Oh! Sweet nuthin'," are meant to be stand-alone sentiments..."

SXSW Live Shot: Lou Reed Tribute
‘Real Good Time Together’
DAILY Music  March 15, 2014, by Michael Toland
"...Obvious pairings hit the right notes as well. The hair-of-the-dog vibe of “Oh! Sweet Nuthin’” suited Bobby Bare, Jr.’s loose singing style..."

Playback: Altered States
Three Austin artists that are changing their tune
Music Column  March 31, 2016, by Kevin Curtin
"...Rock & roll epitomizes freedom – in sound and state of mind – but after a decade conjuring crunch and punch, Evan Charles now seeks independence though an acoustic guitar. The 27-year-old Texan, who blossomed with teen rockers the Daze then made the scene fronting garage heavies the Sweet Nuthin', blew the doors off the Austin Music Awards two weeks ago, summoning his inner Jagger to lead the Happen-Ins through Rolling Stones' spark plug "Rip This Joint." Unbeknown to the audience, his two-year term in the Haps had already passed...."

Farmers Market Report: December 15
Let's take a look at the Sunday markets!
DAILY Food  December 15, 2012, by Kate Thornberry
"...I don’t want to bum anybody out, but I think we have just had the driest November in the history of the Republic of Texas, and we are working on the driest December, so any Rain God Praising you might do will be very much appreciated … here’s hoping we shall get to do it! (Even drizzle is better than nuthin’)..."

"...HORMONES: Tim Stegall may not agree with this, but I say he does the best damn scissor kick in rock & roll since David Lee Roth. And speaking of kick, his band the Hormones kicks NBA style -- Nuthin' But Ass..."

Music Story  March 20, 1998
"...DON WALSER & THE PURE TEXAS BAND: The name "Pure Texas Band" says it all: nuthin' but smooth pedal steel, a countrified rhythm section, and a yodeling geetar strummer still best described as "The Pavarotti of the Plains." Music as big as the open West Texas sky and as comfortable as a porch swing ride after one of those Lone Star long lazy summer days. (Continental Club,11pm) -David Lynch..."

Billy Idol, Stubb's, July 8
Music Review  July 20, 2001, by Raoul Hernandez
"...Don't forget about "Pretty in Pink" or OMD's "If You Leave." Instead, there's new material: fist-waver "Walk the Monster" and midtempo fist-twirler "I Don't Think So." No comeback is complete without taping VH1's Storytellers, so what better way to start off a 35-minute acoustic set than "White Wedding"? Doing his best Elvis, Idol gives his flagging fists a rest during "Sweet Sixteen," "To Be a Lover," "Don't Need a Gun" and "Eyes Without a Face," the VH1 version. Isn't Crocodile Hunter on right now? Or Crocodile Dundee? "Blue Highway" marks the return of the bass drum and Steven's you-ain't-seen-nuthin'-yet BTO attack, while Gen X's "Ready Steady Go" is a reminder that Idol once peroxided his spikey head for a reason..."

"...Williams in Paterson: If there was not beauty, there was a strangeness and a bold association of wild and cultured life. But there ain't nuthin' wild about sitting on your ass and playing a video game, no matter how transgressive the game..."

SXSW Record Reviews
Music Review  March 6, 1998
"...There ain't nuthin' pretty about the Handsome Family. That's not entirely true, but for the most part, their thing is to take fairly conventional C&W tradition and fuck mercilessly with it..."
