Polaris: Redemption

blog-16June2012-photo1The long list nominees for the Polaris Music Prize were announced earlier this week, and I’m happy.

I’m happy because, for starters, the nominees aren’t over-synthesizing. Unlike last year.

I’m also happy because many of my own ‘picks’ were on the list. Like Rich Aucoin. Like Blackie and the Rodeo Kings. Like Feist. Like Dan Mangan. And like The Weeknd.

There are some notable exceptions, though.

Like Tea Petrovic. Like Ania Soul. Like Suzie Vinnick.

Like Carly Rae Jepson?

But, they got a bunch right, so we’ll leave it at that.

Polaris is going to announce their short list of ten nominees on July 17. And we’ll have our picks for the Prize.


Who do YOU think should take top honours?
