UNCUT REVIEWS HEY SAN PEDRO





XANDER SMITH
Hey San Pedro
SONG & DANCE
Unlikely connection: a Herp Alpert-mentored indie-folk artist
The leader of LA band Run Run Run has designed his first solo LP from the blueprint drawn up by Elliot Smith (no relation): aching songs of loss and longing put across with sparing precision by delicately fingerpicked guitar and fragile double-tracked vocals. Smith has a knack for capturing bedroom solitude with this simple recipe, and his arching chorus hooks, embellished by fluttering multitracked harmonies cut through the existential gloom of laments like “Down”, “Moving on” and “Lost Along The Way”. Providing a welcome lift are the shimmering “Sunday Afternoon” and a spiky cover of Tegan And Sara's “Walking With A Ghost”.

JUNEAU & XENA 3/28/12

Log into Juneau & Xena's podcast to listen to great music and fun stories with Xander! They discuss the following:

Xander Smith, our always entertaining raconteur will join us to share all his latest news! New album "Hey San Pedro", tour with RunRunRun out west and now headed to places further afield.

What's he up to with the Cherry's and is Riff involved?

Music will be played - of course!

Here’s the question that will win us a Pulitzer Prize, maybe a Peabody for tough investigative journalism. Why is Xander Smith happily posing outside a Hello Kitty store? Is this a cover for some nefarious undercover activity? Is Hello Kitty a front for a terrorist group and this is Xander’s way of sending the message? Xander’s in the hot-seat for this one and he can’t sing his way out of it!!
