2013 Polaris long list released, time to complain about it

Amid all of the other exciting things that happened yesterday, the fact that the Polaris Prize long list was announced was completely lost on me.  However, I am back down on planet Earth.

Now let the bitching begin!

Somehow the atrocious Tegan & Sara record made the list, as did the disappointing Metric album, which brings the entire thing into question.  I also have to wonder how Portage & Main's excellent record got overlooked.

Judging from the list, one would have to think that this may be the year that Al Tuck gets to take the over-sized novelty cheque home.

Read the complete list here.
