Crash Karma - Rock Musique Deluxe

You may recognize some of these faces. They are four musicians from different bands that have come together for Crash Karma.
Singer Edwin (I Mother Earth), guitarist Mike Turner (Our LadyPeace), drummer Jeff Burrows (TheTea Party) and bassist Amir Epstein (Zygote). 
They formed in 2010, and each share the same musical vision. That bond has created a band of brothers between them.

“When we first got together, I didn’t know the guys,” says bassist and main songwriter Epstein, who set up the musical blind date that launched the band in 2008. “I wasn’t friends with them and they weren’t friends with each other — which I actually thought was kind of strange, being that they were in three of the most successful bands ever in Canada. They had crossed paths when they toured, but they weren’t super-tight. So we weren’t very comfortable in the studio. Everybody was on their best behaviour. If someone made a suggestion someone else didn’t like, there wasn’t much criticism. Nobody wanted to offend.  “Since then, we’ve played together, we’ve recorded together, we’ve toured together. And we’ve become close, a bunch of buddies. We know everything about each other now — all the dark secrets. So it was a lot different in the studio. We were comfortable with one another, we were honest with one another, we were open with one another. And it was way more opinionated — ‘That sucks! Do it again!’ Instead of everybody doing what they want, we did what was best. And we all ended up making a stronger album because of it.”

Album Review:
Honestly hadn't heard of Zygote before this. I have fond memories of seeing Edwin play solo at Gage Park for Festival of Friends and am a huge fan. Love The Tea Party and Our Lady Peace too!  Put them all together and you really have something magical!
Edwin sings beautifully, and sounds great with the melodies chosen for the album. The guitars and drums are skillful and each song has a great beat.
Finally Free and Tomorrow are my favorite tracks.  Finally Free has a really heavy beat that I love, and Tomorrow is laid back and awesome. It really gave me the best feeling while listening to it. Makes for a great summer tune!
I can't wait to hear more from these four and hopefully they'll even visit my city one day soon. Fingers crossed!  :-)

RATED F 72 minutes AMAZON An evil sorceress transports the gang back to the age chivalrous knights, spell-casting wizards, and fire-breathing dragons. While there, Shaggy unwittingly pulls out Excalibur from a nearby stone to cut a block of cheese and now no one is sure who the rightful ruler is. The legendary wizard, Merlin, appears and explains that the throne of Camelot must be determined through TRIAL BY COMBAT. Our heroes pull out all the stops to try and win the tournament, break the witch's hold on King Arthur, and find a way back to the present in this legendary story of Scooby Doo in King Arthur's Court. REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
