I first heard Zak Smith last year, and was impressed by his EP. His eponymous debut came out in April, and it’s a very strong collection of rock tunes–well written, well played, and with solid vocals.

I imagine that live, he’s tons of fun.

You can stream the whole new record below. I recommend “So Good It’s Gone,” with a neat little bongo line that makes me think of Joe Cocker, and the mournful “As the Bodies Pile Up” as an example of his lyricism.

Good stuff. Check it out.
