Polaris Music Prize reveal their short-list during a radio special which aired on July 15, 2020 across Canada via CBC Music.
There was no way I was going to listen 2 and half hours of the show since I need to go out and spend outside for some nice summertime sunshine.
When I posted the long-list, I had some predictions to who will make it on the shortlist and I was 4/10 right.
The 2020 Polaris Music Prize Short List is:
- Backxwash – God Has Nothing To Do With This Leave Him Out Of It
- Caribou – Suddenly
- Junia-T – Studio Monk
- Kaytranada – Bubba
- nêhiyawak – nipiy
- Pantayo – Pantayo
- Lido Pimienta – Miss Colombia
- Jessie Reyez – Before Love Came To Kill Us
- U.S. Girls – Heavy Light
- Witch Prophet – DNA Activation
This year will be a hard choice on these stellar albums to be the winner!
