From the ones I've heard, that prize should go to Feist or Junior Boys. I've heard a couple of tracks of the Besnard's album... pretty good.

I'd have to agree.
Feist's album is such a progression from her last one.

i totally disagree. i think this year's list is much worse than last's, when final fantasy went up against cadence weapon, malajube, and metric, all of whom had stronger albums than any of this year's contestants. how depressing for canada.

of course, if every feist song was as good as "1 2 3 4" she'd have it in the bag. but, they're not.
