The Long List is newly and proudly presented this year by the Canada Council for the Arts.

The jury will now take this list and vote again to come up with the Short List, which will be announced at 11am est on July 7 from the Sky Yard of the Drake Hotel in Toronto, and will be broadcast live across Canada and the U.S. on SIRIUS Satellite Radio Canada's CBC Radio 3 channel 86 at 11am EST.

Will post download links to these as I gt them... download and listen to the music. It goes without saying, but if you like the music, go see the band, tell your friends about them, maybe buy a t-shirt at their show...

And, if you want a Demonoid account, just ask and I can send you an invite.
