Karkwa Among the three hottest Bands in Canada

3. Karkwa
Les Chemins de Verre is pitch perfect; a brilliant album worthy of its Polaris win. I'm a fan for life. Of all the records nominated for Polaris this year, Les Chemins De Verre is the one I was least familiar with on the day the shortlist was announced, and it's the one that I couldn't possibly live without today. (Jim, QBIM)
Winning the 2010 Polaris Music Prize pretty much makes them hot as hot can be in 2010... even though they had released 3 previous albums before Les Chemins de Verre no one outside of Quebec knew who they were... what a pity that was... but pity no more... now almost everyone knows who they are. (Marc Xavier Leblanc)
In terms of increased profile over the last year, no one can top Karkwa because before they surprised many by taking this year's Polaris Music Prize, most of English Canada had never even heard of them. Can't say that anymore. (Frank, Chromewaves)
Like Fucked Up before them, Karkwa was the surprise winner of this year's Polaris Music Prize. And like Fucked Up, sales of their album spiked after the award. Now it's time for them to take advantage of the exposure. (Ryan, Whatever's Cool With Me)
Hottest now because they just won the 2010 Polaris Music Prize. Les Chemin de Verre is a great album, even if you don't know French. (Ming Wu)
A Polaris win did a lot for this band who very few people outside of Quebec had heard of before the oversized cheque was handed to them. Their breathy, lush record is now being heard across the country thanks to the exposure brought to the band by the Prize. (Rod, Bootlog)
Obligatory Polaris tip of the hat. (Alex, Chipped Hip)
I don't think their album was Polaris-worthy, but people have been talking about Karkwa ever since, so that makes them undeniably hot. (Adrien, PopMatters)
It took them a Polaris Prize nomination and win to get the attention of the country but to me, they were a great Canadian band regardless. That being said though, that win turned their year from lukewarm to sizzling hot. Sure it was a bit of a shock to many but come on, Karkwa are awesome! Stop scratching your heads and pick up a record. (Melody, Spinner)
