The Montreal-based musician — who fronts his own eponymous, Polaris Prize-winning band — frequently leafs through science journals as part of his morning routine, and those publications' strangest passages became his muse. "I read about scientists that grew a woman's entire reproductive system in a lab, and about a 3D printer that can create miniature livers," Watson tells Exclaim! "Reading those journals made me wonder what technology will be like...
