Polaris Prize:: Round 1 - update

Too many records. I'll use that as my excuse, but I completely forgot about The Deep Dark Woods and their terrific record, Winter Hours (review). As far as roots music goes, these guys set the bar here in Canada, and All the Money I Had is Gone is probably battling with Robots for the title of my favorite song this year. All in all, a very worthy addition to my official ballot.

And because I felt bad about this glaring omission - which has been changed on my ballot for the record - I've also thrown in a terrific live take of River in the Pines. So pencil this into my number four slot and hopefully a few jurors are more diligent than I am and remembered this talented SK band.
