Polaris People For The Week Of March 23 – Cadence Weapon, Feist, Shadowy Sadies On A Shadowy Planet And More

· by Aaron Brophy

We're deep in Canadian Music Week over here in Polarisland. That hasn't stopped some of our juror-type friends from thinking ahead, however.

Never one to shy from a good debate, CBC Music personality and frequent Polaris host <strong>Grant Lawrence</strong> has already started <a href = 'http://music.cbc.ca/#/Radio3/blogs/2012/3/Polaris-Music-Prize-2012-If-The-Ballots-Were-Submitted-Today'>soliciting jurors</a> in the lead-up to the June 14 Polaris Long List announcement.

If that article's any indication, there's going to be a lot more Dan Mangan and Rich Aucoin in future Polaris People columns.

But not this week.

No, we've got other artists to talk about. Namely Arcade Fire, Cadence Weapon, The Sadies and Tegan And Sara. Find out why by clicking through.

Behind the Scenes: Polaris discussion list

· by Tab S.

Most familiar with the Polaris Music Prize will know that a jury of over 200 music writers, broadcasters, and bloggers is indispensible to the process that determines the award.

But what many may not know is that before the jurors make their five-album selections for the Long List and subsequent Short List, they spend much of the year discussing their picks and pans on an e-mail listserv that’s open only to jury members.

For a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the sort of exchange that goes on online between Polaris jurors, we turned to two jurors with very different opinions on the Short List: Veteran juror <a href="http://radiofreecanuckistan.blogspot.com/">Michael Barclay</a>, co-author of Canrock history <a href="http://www.ecwpress.com/havenot"><i>Have Not Been the Same</i></a>, came out strongly in favour of the Short List when it was first announced, while <a href="http://nxew.ca/">NxEW.ca</a> blogger Justin Beach (who's been on the jury for the past two years) offered up more of a shrug…

Programmer Evelyne Côté took some time out in the hours before this year’s edition of Osheaga kicked off to chat about the festival’s Polaris connections.
