Here is the 2012 Polaris Prize Short List:
Our jury is showing an ever growing passion and dedication to reviewing, discussing and advocating their selections. This has resulted in a Short List of records that are musically focused, intense and in some cases highly personal. The process of selecting a winner should prove to be an invigorating challenge for our Grand Jury. – Steve Jordan, Polaris Prize Founder
