Arctic: Music from Canada's Northwest Territories, Metric video, SXSW Torrents, Chef to quit South Park, more
Marcus Martin is the brains behind Arctic. Drawing from his childhood experiences in the arctic region of Canada's Northwest Territories, his haunting music transcends ordinary folk/rock with layers of beautiful acoustic guitar, subtle synthesized sounds, and sublime pedal effects.
Arctic - Some One Turning
Arctic - Launching Pad
- Metric - Poster of a Girl (video)
