Here’s the Long List for the 2024 Polaris Music Prize

More than 200 album submissions for the 2024 Polaris Music Prize have been voted down to a Long List of 40 semi-finalists. After this marinates with the jury pool (200+ music boffins across the country of which I am one), there will be another round of voting before we get the Short List next month.

Meanwhile, think about these albums. Lots of hard rock here. Good.
