If you thought Sam Smith was a (very good) one-trick pony inclined toward the smooth minimalist R&B arena, you might be wrong - at a recent live session at the BBC's Maida Vale studios, he delivered this intense, heavy cover of Arctic Monkeys' AM highlight "Do I Wanna Know?" It's so good - Smith's vocals are chills-up-your-spine astonishing; he effortlessly presides over his band's rhythmic, dirge-y punk drive. Press play immediately, if only to give yourself a break from spinning Smith's debut EP Nirvana.
