Taber and Drew were invited to K's studio to listen to and discuss the album.Unique to this episode is the addition of music throughout the conversation.With his laptop handy K took us through some of the songs on the album and explained different aspects of the writing/recording process. He also shared some of his favorite bands and the groups whose music helped inspire the new album. Other topics include K's background in Jazz, his musical career from his first band, Jupiter One, to playing for Regina Spektor, to joining of Montreal and to eventually headlining tours around the country and around the world.
