Polaris People For The Week Of June 15 ““ Japandroids In-Depth, Long List Headlines, Broken Socionics Scene
My goodness. The 2012 Polaris Long List is finally here. It's so good it's giving us the vapors. But what do you think? Don't be shy telling us how you really feel. Everyone else is.
In the meantime, though, feel free to check out our recently assembled 2012 Long List fast facts for a quick history primer.
It's a particularly exciting time in Polaris People tabulation land because we have 40 new records (and people) to talk about. So let's get started shall we?

Bry Webb and Sandro Perri, another pair of 2012 Long Listers, will be part of the Summerworks Performance Festival.
Twice Short Listed dead discoers Metric have just released their new â€œSyntheticaâ€ album and Exclaim, National Post, CBS, Toronto Star, Spinner, Metro and AUX (in fancy new â€œiPad magazineâ€ form) were amongst those to talk to them.
Finally, let us end this week's column by considering the socionics of twice-Short Listed Broken Social Scene.
