Short List Predictions


 

It’s that again! When “music people” such as myself wrack their brains to try and predict the Polaris Music Prize Short List. This year was difficult, as there weren’t as many standout albums for me on the Long List as in previous years. But here are a few that caught my ear:

A Tribe Called RedNation II Nation
 
Alaclair EnsembleLes maigres blancs d’Amérique du Noir
 
The Besnard LakesUntil In Excess, Imperceptible UFO
 
Hannah GeorgasHannah Georgas
 
Jim GuthrieTakes Time
 
Kid Koala12 bit Blues
 
Danny Michel with the Garifuna CollectiveBlack Birds Are Dancing Over Me
 
AC NewmanShut Down The Streets
 
SuunsImages du futur
 
Tegan and SaraHeartthrob

 
Find out on July 16th how horribly off I am!
