Polaris Prize Short List 2011

The Polaris Prize short list was announced today. Some may say this is the most important award given out in Canadian music...I would agree with them. Any Canadian music award that has never gone to the likes of Nickelback has my support.

The long list was cut to 10 albums. I was overjoyed to see that Braids, a band originally out of Calgary, made the cut.  Here are the rest of the short list nominees:

Arcade Fire - the Suburbs
Austra - Feel it Break
Braids - Native Speaker
Destroyer - Kaputt
Galaxie - Tigre et diesel
Hey Rosetta - Seeds
Ron Sexsmith - Long Player Late Bloomer
Colin Stetson - New History Warfare Vol. 2: Judges
Timber Timbre - Creep On Creepin' On
The Weeknd - House Of Balloons

I don't know how I'd feel about Arcade Fire winning...I find it hard to route for the group that has won basically everything else. Plus, I want Braids to win.
