Saturday April 18 — the 2015 edition of Record Store Day — will see the release of a new EP from The Sam Roberts Band, Counting The Days.  Fans of sweet, sweet analog will get a special treat, as the package will be available on red vinyl.  As you can see above, fans of creative artwork will get a treat as well, courtesy of album artwork designer Benjamin Nelson.

Counting The Days sees the band in a slightly experimental mode à la Chemical City; although it’s definitely rooted in rock, you’ll hear quite a mélange of influences including electronica, African, funk and others.

The band have made the lead single available; it’s a bit reminiscent of The Gate, and appears in its almost-eight-minute glory below.

Love, Dr. Scott James
