The band that uses the bathroom together makes a lot of records together.You've heard us gush about Frank Smith. A cow-punk collective for the lazy days. If it weren’t for Aerosmith, they might never have existed. They multi-task in countless other bands (Lot Six, Eyes Like Knives, the Sharking), yet they still find the time to put out an album once a year. We've only got one job and we can't even find the time to do our laundry -- dudes, what's yer time-management secret?
This year's Frank Smith offering, Red on White, doesn't see an official release party until April 1 at Great Scott, but we've managed to scare up a pre-release preview. This one's a harmonica-blown hoedown made for blaring out of a pick-up truck, bouncing around dirt roads, and drinking beer while doing yardwork. On a second listen, it's also useful for happily contemplating your spring-fevered restlessness, dumping your friends, and trading in your wallet for a purse. All that and a Shawshank Redemption dialogue snippet for your lazy Friday.
LISTEN: Frank Smith, "Time to Cut the Fence"
