Arcade Fire, Drake, Mac DeMarco and more up for the Polaris Music Prize

Arcade Fire’s Reflektor, Owen Pallett’s In Conflict, Basia Bulat’s Tall Tall Shadow, and A.V. Fest performer Mac DeMarco’s Salad Days have all made the shortlist for Canada’s Polaris Music Prize. The award is sort of like Canada’s best album Grammy, except it’s voted on by a panel of journalists and broadcasters and it comes with a $30,000 prize. Other nominated records and artists include Drake’s Nothing Was The Same, Yamantaka//Sonic Titan’s UZU, Timber Timbre’s Hot Dreams, Tanya Tagaq’s Animism, Shad’s Flying Colours, and Jessy Lanza’s Pull My Hair Back.

The Polaris Music Prize winner will announced at a gala Sept. 22 in Toronto. Jay Baruchel will host.
