This episode meets all Can-Con requirements as Kat is joined by all four members of Shadow of Everest, the band that this very podcast played a track from on its very first episode. We talk about being a band in Atlantic Canada, Tool, existing outside genres and their new EP “Idle Hands”. As well the track listing is full of bands from the Maritimes, who says they don’t put out great music?

The first episode of Start the Music without a guest, but have no fear because that half hour of talking has been replaced with twenty-six shiny minutes of music from across the genres. Take it on a commute, listen on a lunch break, there’s something for everyone. For less than the cost of a latte in Canada you can own all these tracks.
