2012 Polaris Music Prize Long List

I'm on the jury panel for the Canadian Polaris Music Prize [http://www.polarismusicprize.ca/2012/]. This is board is intended to archive all the mini reviews I post on my blog for the 40 albums nominated to the 2012 Polaris Long List. Check them out and let me know if you agree with my assessments or not. Streaming music, sometimes the full album even, accompanies every review.

A Look at the Polaris Long List: Avec pas d’casque – Astronomie

Slakah the Beatchild is a well known Toronto producer who has worked with Drake, Tingsek and Ebrahim to name a few. Not to mention, this album is - good music for FREE.

I can’t get enough of Grimes’ “Vision” album! So much raw expression packed into 14 tracks of pure art. If you haven’t listened yet, you should.

Great Lakes Swimmers album is just more of what I love about their music. Even better, the addition of new member Miranda Mulholland adds new backup vocals and violin. Masters of country-rock.
