The ten acts/albums who will vie for the prize on September 20th are:

Broken Social Scene – Forgiveness Rock Record
Caribou – Swim
Karkwa – Les Chemins De Verre

Early picks anyone? I’m going with the Besnard Lakes, my heart with Caribou and my head with Dan Mangan. We’ll just let them battle it out ‘til then.
