The Polaris Prize short list revealed!

Owen Pallett, one of the phenomenal acts who made the 2010 Polaris Prize long list.

Excitement has come to a fever pitch as the short list has just been revealed. Here’s the list in full:

  • Besnard Lakes- The Besnard Lakes are the Roaring Night
  • Broken Social Scene- Forgiveness Rock Record
  • Caribou- Swim
  • Karkwa- Les Chemins de Verre
  • Dan Mangan- Nice, Nice, Very Nice
  • Owen Pallett- Heartland
  • Radio Radio- Belmundo Regal
  • The Sadies- Darker Circles
  • Shad- TSOL
  • Tegan and Sara- Sainthood

Overall a great list. Personally thrilled to see Dan Mangan and Owen Pallett on the list, even if Owen Pallett did win previously. Though surprising, also glad to see the somewhat underrated Radio Radio on there.

We’ll see how everything plays out when the Polaris Gala takes place in September.
