Hear Frank Smith's Sebadoh-Informed 'How Many Ways'

Aptly titled 'Nineties' LP arrives April 2

Frank Smith's name might be misleading — as the Austin-based group's Facebook page points out, "Frank Smith is a band, not a man" — but the title of their upcoming album, Nineties (out April 2), couldn't shoot any straighter. Frontman Aaron Sinclair conjures the spirit of Sebadoh on stumble-stomper "How Many Ways," slurring his way through twitchy paranoia with lines like, "Bad ideas won't leave me alone / They want to know why I won't lay on the floor," before hollering "How many ways / Can we fuck this up?" over beer-bloated guitars. The foggy coda collaged on the end comes right on cue.
