When Sam Roberts Band hit the studio to record their latest album, Lo-Fantasy, their producer, Youth, demanded that the band be able to play the songs live — and that the record would be made as a live band.

At first the band fought the idea, but Youth is a strong-willed producer with a resumé that includes U2 and Guns N' Roses; he wasn't about to take no for an answer. The risk paid off, as Lo-Fantasy is without a doubt the strongest Sam Roberts Band release to date.

Sam Roberts Band gave 30 lucky fans a live-off-the-floor sneak preview of the album in this special session for CBC Music. As you can see and hear, the band is tight. A nice byproduct of Youth's insistence they record live.

The concept of getting the band to play together, rather than as separate units, definitely creates a more cohesive experience when you're listening to the music.  Sam Roberts Band make great music, and this song is so catchy.  Good on the producer for being so pushy, it clearly paid off!
