Biography

Sam Roberts was living in a hobbit hole on a mountain in Spain, watching the sun set on the hills of Andalucia when the lyrics of "Golden Hour" came to him. If that were the only unusual thing about the making of 'Lo-Fantasy,' his fifth studio album, it would still be remarkably strange, but this is no ordinary Sam Roberts Band record.

Editorial Reviews

Review

'''Lo-Fantasy' is at once organically rootsy and studio sophisticated, with songs that straddle the line between stadium shouters (''We're All In The Together'') and midtempo club anthems (''The Hands Of Love'')'' --All Music

''Insanely catchy'' --The Buffalo News

''Explosive...'Lo-Fantasy' redefines Roberts' sound with the addition of sinewy and gauzy club vibes that gives listeners more reasons to dance than to head-bang.'' --Pop Matters

Product Description

Limited two CD set includes a bonus disc containing eight remixes. 2014 release from the Juno Award-winning Canadian singer/songwriter and his band, their first new album in three years. Working for the first time with producer Youth (AKA. Martin Glover), Lo-Fantasy infuses Sam Roberts Band's rousing brand of Rock n' Roll with elements of Funk, House, Electronic, and African music, resulting in their most dynamic and inventive album to date. Youth recorded Lo-Fantasy live on his Montreal studio floor in twelve days. ''We worked insanely long hours, and after three days of that you're almost in a hallucinogenic state,'' Roberts laughs. The combination of sleep deprivation, excitement, uncertainty, and adrenaline pushed the band outside any notion of comfort, resulting in tracks ranging from the slithery dance-rock album opener ''Shapeshifters'' and anthemic single ''We're All In This Together,'' to the electro-remix of ''Chasing The Light.''

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW! The time has come for the Sam Roberts Band !! February 15, 2014
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I'm stunned. I usually don't take the time to review, or have a lot to say about albums I buy on Amazon, but this one just screamed for me to get off my duff and tell the world. Sam Roberts' latest effort, Lo-Fantasy, will be the one that makes him and his band a household name in the music business. What an effort and well worth the wait. I've dug his Brother Down, Bridge To Nowhere, and a few other ditties that I've heard of his through the years enough to know that he's capable of coming up with something better, but until now, have not heard it.

Lo-Fantasy has a little something for everybody, without any crap or filler. The music is just so pleasing with well-structured indie, MOR, and love songs. The production is superb; I did not struggle to hear one word that Sam was singing - a refreshing change of pace in today's music in itself. The vocals are nice and crisp, and loaded with beautifully soaring harmonies that just wrap around you and your loved one. "The Hands Of Love" along with "We're All In This Together" are my initial favorites, but after only a couple listens, I'll be liking just about each song - it's really an album that will stand out in 2014, I know it. I haven't even bothered to listen to the remakes yet, just Sam's first original 11 songs; who knows what bonus material may be there...

A huge tip of the hat to Sam Roberts, his band, and his production crew on a superb album they can all be VERY proud of. Smile guys - we'll all be hearing lots of airplay of Lo-Fantasy on the radio waves this summer!!

Evolution while sticking to the roots of the band. Every track is typical Sam Roberts, progressive, rock and roll, thoughtful lyrics. Great band in recordings, even better live.

5.0 out of 5 stars As expected - awesome! February 17, 2014
By blu
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
As expected, the Lo-Fantasy is a great record. I have been a fan since his first album and find this album to be as good if not better than the others. If you even remotely liked any of his other records, you will like this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rock Solid Rock n Roll June 30, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Ever buy an album and it's about all you play for days? This is it. It starts great, ends great, with lots of fine tracks in between. I have yet to find a low spot.
