Last month the 2012 Polaris Music Prize, which awards a Canadian album of recorded music each year, revealed their long list and this week the short list was revealed. Cadence Weapon, Cold Specks, Drake, Kathleen Edwards, Feist, Fucked Up, Grimes, Handsome Furs, Japandroids, and Yamantaka // Sonic Titan are the 10 artists vying for this year's Prize, which will be announced at a gala on September 24. Who's gonna win?

Japandroids, Grimes or Fucked up should win, but Drake probably will.

It's nice to see that Handsome Furs record get some love somewhere, seems like it totally flew under people's radar last year.

Couldn't care less about Polaris since they screwed over Basia in 2008.

Polaris Music Prize- brought to you by the same people who awarded the prize to "Final Fantasy" instead of Broken Social Scene in '06, "Patrick Watson" instead of Arcade Fire or Besnard Lakes in '07 and "Karkwa" instead of Broken Social Scene or Besnard Lakes in '10...

Yeah, but that Final Fantasy album IS better than Broken Social Scene.
