Really hoping The Weeknd takes it this year.

Would love to have Fucked Up win it once again.

I can see The Weeknd taking this. Wouldnt mind Coeur de Pirate getting it either

Holly HoX! 06/14/12 01:22 PM

Fucked Up, Japandroids and Grimes

I love you Grimes.

It's sort of cool seeing that Cannon Bros. made the cut and are getting attention outside of Manitoba.

Would be so crazy is Grimes takes it. I predict either Fesit or The Weeknd will take it though.

Xuut 06/14/12 04:27 PM

Japandroids or Cur de Pirate would be cool.

Wouldn't mind The Weekend either.

Chris Collum 06/15/12 03:13 PM

Grimes and Japandroids deserve it. Also want to check out Patrick Watson's album and a couple of others on that list.

Either Japandroids or The Barr Brothers, they're both underrated in my book.
