The Polaris Music Prize is one of the only music awards that tends to get it right. The award is given out annually to what is deemed by a large voting pool to be the best Canadian album. We already posted the longlist which had a ton of good stuff, but now they’ve narrowed it down to the shortlist. Below you’ll find the nominees, one of which will be awarded the prize and $30,000 at a ceremony in Toronto on 9/22 .
