Polaris 2012

Polaris Music Prize

Short List Nominees (the real ones)

Well, if you checked out my predictions prior to the announcement (or just scroll down a bit) you’ll know how very wrong I was. To my credit, I painstakingly cut both Cold Specks and Feist at the last minute. Dumb.
Regardless, I give you the 2012 Polaris Music Prize Short List nominees:
Cadence Weapon- Hope in Dirt City

Cold Specks- I Predict a Graceful Expulsion

Drake- Take Care

Kathleen Edwards- Voyageur

Feist- Metals

Fucked Up- David Comes to Life

Grimes- Visions

Handsome Furs- Sound Kapital

Japandroids- Celebration Rock

Congrats to all the nominees! Check back in the next few weeks for more in-depth reviews of the Top 10. The winner will be picked in Toronto on Sept 24th 2012.
