My 2012 Polaris Music Prize Ballot
I’m predicting, at best, that only two of my picks (Cold Specks and maybe Azari & III) will make the long list. I was conflicted like a muh’ about whether to vote for Drake’s Take Care album. I’d be gutted if he didn’t make the long list because it would just look bad for the Polaris IMHO but truthfully, there were just other albums (see above) that I happened to love more and felt could benefit from the shine more. If Drake loses, I doubt he’ll even notice over the drone of his private G4 at 32,000 feet!
