ARTIST INFO:
Sam Roberts Band - Shapeshifters: http://youtu.be/xPYcbMADOt8?list=PLB55284D4808D9FC0

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, Rock the Shores, Lollapalooza and Bumbershoot, and alongside heroes like the Rolling Stones and AC/DC.

Sam Roberts Band

Roberts formed the band that was eventually known as William in 1993. The band's name was changed to Northstar in 1996. Although the band gained some notice in independent rock circles, they couldn't break through to a national audience, and broke up in 1999 after failing to release an album.[1] Roberts' bandmate George Donoso went on to significan... more info

Pigeon Park (Rock N Roll)

There is an old expression that sums up Vancouver’s Pigeon Park and has acted as an inspiration for their forthcoming six-song EP entitled Stripes. For the hard-rocking quintet the phrase ‘earning your stripes’ has a profoundly personal meaning. It refers to the countless hours rehearsing, touring and toiling – doing everything it takes to... more info

Mindil Beach (Rock)
