Sing it with love

The cooties phobia is getting a little out of hand
The Polaris Long List was announced last week and three of my first ballot picks made the cut (which is at least one better than I expected).

I’ve spent the past few days brushing up on some of the Long Listed artists, including Montreal’s Young Galaxy. The band released Invisible Republic late last summer, which, in addition to having a beautiful album cover, has some impressively rocking new wave anthems. Here’s the album’s opening track, the dark, dramatic “Long Live the Fallen World.” It sounds a bit like Kate Bush re-imagined as a guitar-loving disco rocker. This changes completely in the last thirty seconds, as it speeds up for a sugar-spiked, electro-tinged coda.
