Polaris Prize short list announced by Jay Baruchel for 2014

The Polaris Prize short list was announced this morning. The Prize, given to the best Canadian full length album as decided by a large group of music journalists, went from a long list of 41 to a short list of 10.

Making the announcement was one of my favorites, Jay Baruchel. The Canadian actor was sporting a Montreal Canadians hat while he read through the list…extremely fast. So fast that they made him read it again. Oh Jay, I still love you. The short list was comprised of a bunch of repeats and some new comers, including Jessy Lanza – LOVE! Go Jessy Lanza Go!

The artists on the 2014 Polaris Prize Short list are:

Arcade Fire — Reflektor
Basia Bulat — Tall Tall Shadow
Mac DeMarco — Salad Days
Drake — Nothing Was The Same
Jessy Lanza — Pull My Hair Back
Owen Pallett — In Conflict
Shad — Flying Colours
Tanya Tagaq — Animism
Timber Timbre — Hot Dreams

The Polaris Prize gala will be broadcast on September 22.


Side Note: OMG Jay Baruchel is so cute. Remember when he was engaged to Allison Pill and I was devastated?! That was a dark time.
