Polaris Music Prize 2006-2011

My personal Photoshop disaster

Arcade Fire's music is on Spotify, the full catalogue! Let's celebrate with the update of Polaris Music Prize playlists. As Wikipedia says, "the Polaris Music Prize is a music award annually given to the best full-length Canadian album based on artistic merit, regardless of genre, sales, or record label. The award was established in 2006 and includes a C$20,000 cash prize". Last year I made two playlists, based on all the shortlisted albums for this award. Now, I added the 2011 shortlisted albums, including the winning one, that by chance is Arcade Fire's The Suburbs. Enjoy!

P.S. I don't wanna think of how many other 2010 playlists should I update...

Stay in touch with the new playlists!
