View artists exemplify the communal spirit of community radio and the Canadian arts scene in general, like Rich Aucoin. The Halifax native recently released his beyond excellent full-length debut, We’re All Dying to Live, recruiting over 500 Canadian musicians and artists to participate in the project. You can read the full-story about the album’s creation here, and watch the lo-fi nostalgia of his new video for album stand-out “It” below. You won’t regret it.
