Event Description

Sam Roberts, called in a broad spectrum of influences for his fifth studio album, Lo-Fantasy, from the Clash to Fela Kuti, from electronic-gurus Underworld to Etienne De Crecy, from Gordon Lightfoot to Ray Davies, before turning to Youth (a.k.a. Martin Glover) to help sculpt these different directions into a focused, living whole. Youth (a.k.a. Martin Glover) boasted an incredible resume, with production credits ranging from The Verve’s ‘Urban Hymns’ to Crowded House, as well as stints performing with Paul McCartney, ambient-techno kings The Orb, and post-punk outfit Killing Joke. A combination of sleep deprivation, excitement, uncertainty, and adrenaline pushed the band outside any notion of comfort when creating the album, generating their most dynamic and inventive arrangements to date. It also helped capture the fiery spirit and urgency that have made their live shows so legendary, earning them spots performing everywhere from Letterman and Conan to Bonnaroo, ACL, Lollapalooza and Bumbershoot, and alongside heroes like the Rolling Stones and AC/DC.
