Look, Feist went to my Calgary high school, Bishop Carroll (as did Alison Redford and Danielle Smith). She’s amazing. But Polaris should be about new talent, not people who have already been featured in an Apple commercial.
The Japandroids are the guys who should have won. And, by the by, this is the song of Summer 2012: bouncing along a backroad in Maine, sun beating down, and four kids screaming along to every word of this amazing, genius anthem. Joy, it was. Perfect. Best Summer ever.
Polaris folks, you made a mistake.
