Lo-Fantasy, the fifth studio album from Sam Roberts Band, takes its name from the literary genre in which elements of magic are seen to exist in the real world. In a way, this could have been a fitting title for any one of the band’s albums, but it fits this one the best. Even in its embryonic state, Lo-Fantasy had big ambitions. This is the album the band has been leading up to since their formation just over a decade ago. Each previous album has been an important musical step along the path that leads to Lo-Fantasy.
