Godspeed Wins Polaris / Our Country Is Fucked

September 24, 2013

Last night Godspeed You! Black Emperor won the 2013 Polaris Music Prize for album of the year, as voted upon by a grand jury of national music writers across Canada, for their album “Allelujah! Don’t Bend! Ascend!”. Surprising to some, perhaps, but well-deserved, it was a phenomenal album. I seem to have misplaced mine, but [...]

If the Polaris Was Around In the 90’s

September 23, 2013

CBC Music did a post this morning on their website about what would have happened if the Polaris Prize was given throughout the 1990’s. Timed, of course, because tonight’s the big night with the 2013 prize being handed out to one of the albums on this shortlist. Godspeed You! Black Emperor – Allelujah! Don’t Bend! [...]

Polaris Prize 2013 – The Long List

June 13, 2013

It’s that time again – the Polaris Music Prize’s long list announcement. Forty albums, many of whom NMM has talked about a multitude of times, as voted on by a group of mainstream and new media (including some of Canada’s most respected music bloggers), which are then eventually whittled down to ten, from which one [...]

September 25, 2012

Polaris Music Prize To be honest I initially wasn’t going to post the winner of this year’s Polaris Music Prize, because like many music hounds, I was despondently disappointed with the final choice. Which probably seems odd to regular readers who know what a proponent of the awards I have been in the past. But [...]

The Official NMM Response To: FFWD’s Canadian Music Is Boring

July 20, 2012

Yesterday Calgary’s FFWD weekly published an article titled “Canadian Music Is Boring”. It was a “state of the union”, if you will, focusing on topics such as the Polaris Music Prize, Cancon, radio, and calling critics to task. I’m neither for or against the current Cancon rules – they have both an upside and a [...]

Cold Specks: Congrats on the Short List / Tour Dates / “Blank Maps” Video

July 19, 2012

NMM wanted to take this opportunity to pass along our congratulations to Cold Specks for reaching the shortlist of the 2012 Polaris Music Prize. I’ve listened to the album a few times, and she is one of those artists that just leaves you breathless everytime you listen to her. Every time you see her. Every [...]

2012 Polaris Music Prize: The Official Short List

July 17, 2012

It’s been a busy day here at NMM. First we (my wife Heather and myself, obviously) went to our week 21 ultrasound, and found out we’re having a boy (though I really thought it was a boy all along, just had a feeling). Now I just need to convince Heather the middle name should be [...]

MY “Faux” Picks For the 2012 Polaris Music Prize Short List

July 17, 2012

With the announcement of the 2012 Polaris Music Prize “short list” mere hours away, I started a tradition last year of naming my own picks, even though I’m not on the jury. And I’m a sucker for tradition, so, yeh, I’m doing the same thing again. Here’s a reminder of the long list from which [...]
