They always pick the best bands. That Karkwa album that won last year is still spun regularly. Can't wait to see who wins.

I don't know very many albums on this list, but Arcade Fire, Destroyer, The Rural Alberta Advatage, and Stars all had great albums so this should be tough to pick a winner.

I have a feeling it will be Arcade Fire, which is totally deserved. They've had an amazing year. But an extremely strong list of candidates.

My face is melting from the amount of awesome on that list.

Braids is one of my new bands. Dirty Beaches is the shit and Kaputt might be Destroyer's best album yet.
