This morning the Polaris Prize Short List was announced at the Drake Hotel in Toronto. And here it is:

1. Godspeed You! Black Emperor – 'Allelujah! Don't Bend! Ascend!
2. Zaki Ibrahim – Every Opposite
3. Metric – Synthetica
4. METZ – METZ
5. Purity Ring – Shrines
6. Colin Stetson – New History Warfare Vol. 3: To See More Light
7. Tegan And Sara – Heartthrob
8. A Tribe Called Red – Nation II Nation
9. Whitehorse – The Fate Of The World Depends On This Kiss
10. Young Galaxy – Ultramarine

All of the nominees are worthy, but based on our reviews, TORO Music has a particular affection for Godspeed You! Black Emperor and Young Galaxy. But we're not on the Polaris jury.

In case you didn't know, the Polaris Prize uniquely honours Canadian albums based solely on artistic merit, awarding the winner a $30,000 prize.

Past winners include Feist, Arcade Fire, Fucked Up, and Karkwa.

The Polaris Gala will be held on September 23 at The Carlu in Toronto
