With 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
Elliott Brood – Mountain 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 Plaskett – Three
Another cohesive album. Plaskett shows off a lot of songwriting chops on this (or is it these) album(s).
Mother Mother – O 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.
