Polaris short list

Ahem, I realize this came out a little while ago, but here it is.

Elliott BROOD – Mountain Meadows
(Toronto, ON)
Fucked Up – The Chemistry Of Common Life
(Toronto, ON)
Great Lake Swimmers – Lost Channels
(Toronto, ON)
Hey Rosetta! – Into Your Lungs (and around in your heart and on through your blood)
(St. John’s, NF)
K’NAAN – Troubadour
(Toronto, ON)
Malajube – Labyrinthes
(Montréal, QC)
Metric – Fantasies
(Toronto, ON)
Joel Plaskett – Three
(Halifax, NS)
Chad VanGaalen – Soft Airplane
(Calgary, AB)
Patrick Watson – Wooden Arms
(Montréal, QC)

Patrick Watson again?? No Handsome Furs or Wolf Parade, and no Cœur De Pirate is a bit surprising. Also, I'm tired of the Chad VanGaalen sound.

Download, listen and decide for yourself here, then go to a show or two. Joel is a lock.
