Karkwa wins Polaris award


Listening to them on CBC (man, Jian is such a douche - like repeating everything the band members say... we understand them Jian, just like you do. They're speaking English.. anyway) now. For a listen, above is their album for download via torrent.

Formed in 1998, the group consists of vocalist and guitarist Louis-Jean Cormier, keyboardist François Lafontaine, bass guitarist Martin Lamontagne, percussionist Julien Sagot and drummer Stéphane Bergeron. The band's name is a phonetic rendering of carquois (French for a quiver of arrows).

This is their fourth album, mostly acoustic. Good, but I would have gone with the Sadies.
