2009 polaris nod list


The Polaris Music Prize is a music award annually given to the best full-length Canadian album based on artistic merit, regardless of genre, sales, or record label. The award was established in 2006 and includes a C$20,000 cash prize. The Polaris Music Prize is modeled after the Mercury Music Prize, which is handed to the best British or Irish album over the past year, and inspired in turn the Atlantis Music Prize for Newfoundland and Labrador.

The award is sponsored by Sirius Satellite Radio, Government of Canada, FACTOR, MySpace Canada, Slaight Communications and The Drake Hotel.

The Polaris Music Prize gala is broadcast live via CBC Radio 3, both online and on Sirius Satellite Radio.



Here's my little list of the nods I think should win...


Leonard Cohen - Live In London





D-Sisive - Let The Children Die



K-OS - YES!



K'NAAN - Troubadour





Lhasa - Lhasa




Metric - Fantasies
