ALL SMILES is the new project for JIM FAIRCHILD, formerly of the now-defunct GRANDADDY. He received a little help from his friends on this one -- performers from such top-tier indie acts as MODEST MOUSE, THE BLACK HEART PROCESSION, SLEATER-KINNEY, MENOMENA, GREAT NORTHERN, etc.
The proceedings on ALL SMILES' first LP, TEN READINGS OF A WARNING, are low-key but assert a certain undeniable undertow -- whether propelled by subdued acoustic guitar or jaunty, saloon-styled piano.
The record is out today.
