Here it is: The Polaris long list.
Today on (What’s the Story) Peter Morey? I’ll be joined by Polaris Jurors, Journalists, and Musicians to discuss the Polaris 2012 long list.
Everyone is still trying to digest and evaluate the list of 40 albums which was only fully released a half hour ago. So we’ll strike while the iron is hot and get everyones gut reaction.
Are you ready to dissect this sucker? Ok…
Who is missing from this long list?
Who’s a surprise to you?
Is it more diverse this year?
Are there still under represented genres?
Do you know everyone on the list?
If you had three picks to make the short list what would they be?
I’ll be asking my guests for their top picks. My guests will be:
Host of R2 Morning, Deep Roots and sexy banjo player Tom “the rural Juror” Power.
Pop Culture Glutton, Joshua Ostroff the senior editor for the music site Spinner.
Nicole Villeneuve, the managing editor of AuxTV and Polaris Juror.
I'll update the blog once I've spoken to them.
I’ll also be speaking to some freshly nominated Polaris Prize musicians about what they’ll spend the dollaroonies on if they win and the thrill of nomination.
As always leave your comment on the blog and follow along with the show on TUMBLR where you'll find a feast of fun stuff for your ears and eyes.
