The Polaris Music Prize has announced it’s long list of 40 nominees for best album of the year.

Every year since 2006, the Polaris Music Prize has solicited more than 200 Canadian music journalists, bloggers, and broadcasters for their opinions on the year’s best full-length album by a Canadian recording artist.

Voting for a total of 189 titles released this year, today the Polaris Music Prize announced its long list of 40 2014 nominees live from the National Music Centre in Calgary, this year as part of Sled Island Music Festival. It includes records by artists like Austra, Cousins, DIANA, Fresh Snow, Tim Hecker, Odonis Odonis, Tanya Tagaq, and Yamantaka//Sonic Titan. (READ THE FULL LIST BELOW)

Selected solely on basis of artistic merit, nominees for the $30,000 award and bragging rights are considered regardless of genre, sales, or record label. It’s the musician’s music award.

Past winners have included Godspeed You! Black Emperor’s ‘Allelujah! Don’t Bend! Ascend! (2013),Feist’s Metals (2012), Arcade Fire’s The Suburbs (2011), Karkwa’s Les Chemins de verre (2010) Fucked Up’s The Chemistry of Common Life (2009), Caribou’s Andorra (2008), Patrick Watson’s Close to Paradise (2007), and Final Fantasy’s He Poos Clouds (2006).

Next, the list will be sent back to the jurors, who will each re-submit their five top picks from the bands that made the longlist. The ballots will be weighed to determine a short list of the top ten albums of the year, to be announced live from The Carlu in Toronto July 15, where the prize gala will return to for its second year on Sept. 22. As the gala goes on, a grand jury of 11 critics will convene to argue the albums’ merits and determine the winner of the $30,000 purse. The ultimate winner will be announced at the end of the ceremony.
