Finally, taste beats out moula

Final Fantasy is one of my favourite musical acts of the moment. It essentially consists of one Owen Pallett who uses his violin to create poppy yet complex compositions with intelligent lyrics to boot. He just won the inaugural Polaris Music Prize.

The Polaris Prize has been established to recognize the increasing greatness of the Canadian indie music scene and to reward albums based on artistic merit and not genre or sales. All the 10 nominees were great, but giving the award to Final Fantasy shows that the jury actually has brains and balls. All too rare nowadays. Good job, folks.

So does this mean that David Hasselhoff was not nominated?
