And the Polaris goes to…

September 29, 2008

Voted on by an ‘even more expert group of experts’ (a quote from the live webcast), the winner of the 2008 Polaris Music Prize is the album Andorra, by Ontario’s Caribou (Dan Snaith). As well as being a fan of his music (I played the track “Melody Day” when I guest-DJ’ed on WMBR), Caribou also gets z=z love for being in the ranks of overeducated musicians – Dan Snaith holds a doctorate in mathematics from Imperial College London.
