From Jim Caligiuri, The Austin Chronicle:
Frank Smith is a band. Led by Aaron Sinclair, a Boston resident until 2007, the now-local sextet just issued its third disc, Before You Were Born. It's a radical shift from the hazy rootsiness of its past to a rich amalgam of indie and classic rock styles. The title track even possesses a masterful Bob Seger rip, while the rest maintains Sinclair's lustrous, yet gloomy vision.
