Polaris Long List Revealed!

Hey everyone. The Polaris Music Prize announced the 2010 nominees yesterday. A lot of repeats from previous years, Shad and Basia will get to go head to head again! You'll also recognize a lot of bands who've come through London in the last year or so. It looks like a pretty good list to me, lots of variety and it's nice to see some familiar faces. A lot of my fav albums are on here, with the shocking exception of No Ghosts by the Acorn and New Inheritors by Wintersleep. I guess they only just came out, but still...
