Hooray for FINAL FANTASY

When I saw the article in EYE regarding the Polaris Music Awards I was routing for Owen Pallett’s FINAL FANTASY. The idea to have such a Canadian Music award is GREAT. Unlike the Juno Awards it’s completely based on artistic achievement (as judged by 100 local and national music journalists and broadcasters) rather than pure sales. (The Junos of course celebrate more of the “Industry” side of the Canadian Music scene while this puts independent artist on a level playing field)

The nominees are all worth checking out. (Even with my stated fave of the bunch every one on the list has been on my iPod playlist at one time or another…GOOD STUFF!):

Broken Social Scene
Cadence Weapon
The Deadly Snakes
Final Fantasy
Sarah Harmer
K’Naan
Malajube
Metric
The New Pornographers
Wolf Parade

The winner was announced last night!

YEAH YEAH YEAH

FINAL FANTASY!!!
