The New North (Instrumental mix) by hellothisisalex published on 2012/12/20 20:22:56 +0000 As the calendar year’s end suddenly approaches, we return to ‘The New North,’ a song written for Minus 40. Minus 40 was a project pairing artists and musicians with National Film Board of Canada films. For it, we re-scored 1946’s ‘The New North,’ a piece of wartime propaganda about the building of the Alaska-Canadian Highway. The original song featured samples of the film’s narration, but for this month’s remix, we decided to revisit the original instrumental version of the song. We didn’t add anything new, but we re-did the mix from the ground up. We hope this mix tides you over until we return in 2013. Cheers to the return of the sun!
