Handsome Furs/Grimes 7″

The Polaris Prize folks are once again releasing split 7″ of paired up shortlist nominees. If you purchase any of the shortlist nominee’s CD’s or LP’s at any of the following locations, then you will be given a surprise 7″. We are unsure however if you can pick the 7″ you want. The press release states the 7″ will be unmarked.

The pairing we’re the most excited about is Handsome Furs/Grimes. Apparently golden tickets are the new cool thing because 5 golden tickets for two to this year’s Polaris Music Prize Gala happening in Toronto on September 24 will be randomly distributed inside the split 7” packages. Transportation and accommodation to Toronto are not included with the winning tickets. For more info check out PolarisMusicPrize.ca
