Editors’ Notes

On his sixth full-length album, Juno-winning singer/songwriter Sam Roberts offers a hard-grooving, eclectic demonstration of lyrical smarts and experimental vigour. Produced with Martin “Youth” Glover (Beth Orton, The Verve, Crowded House), every song on Lo-Fantasy has a distinctive character—from the soaring chorus and London Calling-inspired backbeat of “Shapeshifters” to the poised, synth-driven groove of “Metal Skin.” The string-adorned dance-rock track, “Chasing the Light,” features one of the album’s most memorable hooks and a battery of vintage synths and drum machines. Throughout the endeavour, Roberts’ sharp lyrics and wiry guitar lines make Lo-Fantasy a triumph. The deluxe edition adds additional remixes that demonstrate the flexibility and creativity of one of Canada’s most gifted songwriters.

Customer Reviews

SRB increasingly evolves their intuition as artists

This band is amazing. As many artists as I appreciate, and as many favourite bands as I have, this band tops that list, everytime they realease an album.

As "I feel you was" to Collider, is as "We're all in this together", is to Lo-fantasy. The lyrics written by Sam meet me at each pivotal moment in my life. . .almost guiding me along the way, and whispering in my ear . .reassuring me that one could never be on the wrong path. This band's music & lyrics meet me at a place so spiritual, that I would not expect anyone to understand-so sorry for trying to explain, but that's how much this music means to me.

If you're considering buying this album, don't hesitate. Sam and the gang excel at every album creation. You will not be disappointed with this one. I opted to buy the deluxe album for a few extra bucks. As much as I prefer the original tracks on this album, the remixes are a nice touch, and something to listen to when the mood feels right. That, and I will forever be a loyal-fan to this band, and support them in anyway I can. They provide a gift to listeners (and are the most-selfless, and generous bunch). I am not sure they fully appreciate the value they have to offer this world-as modest as they are-to them, they are just creating music.

SRB is the epitome of true and pure canadian rock & roll. Their recordnings are magnificent, and their live performances unexplainable, & energy-driven.

Do yourself a favour, and listen to "We're all in this together", "Shapeshifters", "Golden hour", and my new favourite: "METAL SKIN". . .and tell me these lyrics don't speak to you in SOME way. . .

This album has a mix of the original stuff, but an introduction to something fresh & exciting. . .but never unfamiliar.

LOVE this. THANK-YOU, once again, SRB. Keep doing what you do-and that's changing lives-one shapeshift at a time.

Great Album!!!!

I have all his albums, seen him live. And always love everything he does! Greatest canadian artist ever!

Human Heat - classic

Sam's back to his roots... pretty good riff and chord progression. Like the dynamics and vocals. Hopefully the rest just as good.

Biography

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Canadian singer/songwriter Sam Roberts released his first true debut in 2002, following a popular demo he had made in Montreal. Before that, he had been a violin player who eventually moved on to guitar and started a rock band with his friends. After getting a bit of coverage on MuchMusic, they decided to try their luck in Los Angeles. The band didn't get any positive reactions from record labels and disbanded in 1998, but that didn't stop Roberts from going back to Canada and beginning to write...
