The acclaimed Canadian Polaris Music Prize committee has announced their short list for the 2009 awards. And shockingly, The Handsome Furs get snubbed again. Balls! What’s wrong with you Canuks? Well, needless to say, I’m disappointed. I thought this year would be their time to shine. And with all do respect to the nominees that did make the cut, sorry for the rant and congratulations. I’m going to cast my vote for Chad VanGaalen, but my guess is Metric or K’NAAN or Great Lake Swimmers will win.
The new video from Great Lake Swimmers for the track “Pulling On A Line” off their forthcoming album Lost Channels available March 31. Great Lake Swimmers perform at Bottom of the Hill in San Francisco April 3.
