The Polaris Shortlist (a.k.a. the Canadian party playlist)

The 10 contenders for the Polaris music prize were announced today, and it would make a damn good party playlist of Canadiana. Here's hoping the prize goes to an artist that could use the exposure (or at least not to Arcade Fire again). I'm rooting for Tanya Tagaq and Jessy Lanza. 

Here's the full list:

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
Yamantaka // Sonic Titan - UZU
