REDLIGHT KING/Something For The Pain: Available June 28th, 2011!

2011 album from the Canadian band. A latticework of Rock and Hip Hop, the album conjures old school sounds, thanks to leader Kaz and producers Wally Gagel and Xandy Barry, as well as the good vibes at Hollywood's TGG Studios (now called Wax Studios, whose alums include Jimi Hendrix, the Doors and Neil Young). The sound may be warm, but the songs revisit the cold climate of Kaz's native Hamilton, Ontario., and the even chillier emotional landscape of his lost years. In the astonishing hip-hop flavored debut single, "Old Man," Kaz offers a reluctant salute to his father, a larger-than-life figure who taught school by day and raced stock cars at night.
