Final Fantasy wins the 2006 Polaris Music Prize

Final Fantasy

Owen Pallett (aka Final Fantasy) took home $20,000 (Canadian I assume) as the winner of the first ever annual Canadian Polaris Music Prize for his album He Poos Clouds. He beat Broken Social Scene, Metric, Wolf Parade, The Deadly Snakes, Cadence Weapon and all the rest.

Eye Weekly asked everyone what they’d do with the money. Owen’s response: “I’D PAY OFF MY BOYFRIEND’S STUDENT LOAN AND THEN GIVE THE REST TO BANDS I LIKE — LIKE HANK COLLECTIVE AND OTHER BLOCKS [RECORDING CLUB] BANDS — TO MAKE RECORDS.”
