Polaris Suggestions?

polarisWith eligibility ending this Sunday, I’ve been thinking about Polaris nominations lately. I haven’t been quite on the up and up on music this year, so I’m throwing this out there, any releases between June 1, 2008 and May 31, 2009 that I’m overlooking? Here are the front runners on my list

AC NewmanGet Guilty
Carl Newman writes the catchiest of melodies as the lead man of The New Pornographers, and his solo is no exception.

ArkellsJackson Square
I’ve already expressed my love for this album, a strong debut from a hardworking band.

Attack in BlackYears (By One Thousand Fingertips)
Another album that has already received my stamp of approval.

Elliott BroodMountain Meadows
A cohesive folk-death-country album that shares a story.

Hey Rosetta!Into Your Lungs
Like you really need me to once again pump this album

Joel PlaskettThree
Another cohesive album. Plaskett shows off a lot of songwriting chops on this (or is it these) album(s).

Land of TalkSome Are Lakes
Strong songwriting, good flow. Oh I already told you that

Mother MotherO My Heart
One of the finest pop albums to come out last year. Amazing harmonies supporting catchy melodies.

And before you mention Fantasies, been there, heard that, wasn’t impressed.

Holy F*ck Chrysler!


This came on the television the other night and made me smile. The song is “Lovely Allen” off of Holy Fuck‘s 2007 release LP, the full song is quite frankly a masterpiece, give it a listen.

Chrysler isn’t the only car company hopping on the Canadian indie train, Honda recently released this commercial featuring the children’s song, “See You On The Moon” by Wainfleet, Ontario’s Great Lake Swimmers
