â€œ..tweaks and twists its alt-country approach in all sorts of disquieting, alluring directions.â€ – The Boston Globe
â€œBostonâ€™s answer to the Band or Magnolia Electric Co.â€ â€“The Boston Phoenix
â€œFront man Aaron Sinclair is at the top of his game…Frank Smith is a fairly unclassifiable group, unless indie- honky-tonk is a genre that I’ve yet to see listed anywhere. Their combination of old school country and indie rock helped form a truly great album..â€ – Tripwire
â€œThey draw you in, like the smell of a hot pie left to cool on the windowsill…. Frank Smith sets itself apart with its cock-eyed storytelling, the honesty of its songwriting, and the beguiling interplay of slide-guitar, delicately plucked banjo and acoustic strum on slower tracks.â€ – Goldmine
Their â€œSitting in a Treeâ€ EP with Juliana Hatfield features the plaintive, drumless heartbreaker â€œOn Your Mind, the stones-y
up-temporocker â€œA Beer and A Shotâ€, the acoustic new wave â€œKittenâ€, and the dark bluesy â€œIf Only We Were Dogsâ€.
