Polaris Music Prize: The Shortlist

CBC has got the shortlist for Canada's Polaris Music Prize:

Arcade Fire | The Suburbs
Austra | Feel It Break
Braids | Native Speaker
Destroyer | Kaputt
Galaxie | Tigre et diesel
Hey Rosetta! | Seeds
Ron Sexsmith | Long Player Late Bloomer
Colin Stetson | New History Warfare Vol. 2: Judges
Timber Timbre | Creep On Creepin' On
The Weeknd | House Of Balloons
You'd normally say the Arcade Fire would be the one to beat, but given they've been given mainstream prizes south of the border, they might pay the price.
