“..tweaks and twists its alt-country approach in all sorts of disquieting, alluring directions.” – The Boston Globe

“Boston’s answer to the Band or Magnolia Electric Co.” –The Boston Phoenix

“Front 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..” – Tripwire

“They 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.” – Goldmine

Their “Sitting in a Tree” EP with Juliana Hatfield features the plaintive, drumless heartbreaker “On Your Mind, the stones-y
up-temporocker “A Beer and A Shot”, the acoustic new wave “Kitten”, and the dark bluesy “If Only We Were Dogs”.
