Caribou wins the 2008 Polaris Music Prize
The former Manitoba a.k.a Daniel Snaith makes the shortlist with his beautiful album Andorra. So much can be said about this album. An amalgam of dream pop, shoegazer, experimental electronica, and even late 60s mod leanings, it never ceases to be surprising and engrossing. I strongly think I am going to regret placing this record third in my predictions but I feel that his strong track record actually hurts his chances somewhat. I just have this feeling that this record is going to be overlooked by the judges.
Not overlooked after all. Who would you have voted for?
