My Polaris Music Prize 2015 Short List Ballot   Leave a comment

The Polaris Music Prize short list- that is, the ten albums the final jury will deliberate and select a winner from- will be announced on July 16. I submitted my ballot with the following:

1. Various Artists – Native North America (Vol. 1): Aboriginal Folk, Rock, and Country 1966–1985
2. Steph Cameron – Sad-Eyed Lonesome Lady
3. Frazey Ford – Indian Ocean
4. The New Pornographers – Brill Bruisers
5. Lee Harvey Osmond – Beautiful Scars

I had a hard time narrowing the Long List (posted here) down to these five titles. I won’t argue the merit of these forty titles beyond mentioning that I thought there was some significant dreck represented on the list and that the five listed above were those that I thought were the best.
