The Polaris Music Prize Long List has been revealed for 2013. We’ve used the Spotify app to create a free playlist of the albums on the Polaris Long List.

The prestigious prize helps introduce the world to creative new independent acts. Here’s more from Polaris founder Steve Jordan:

This year’s Long List is all over the map, but in the best possible way … A lot of our jury expressed that this was the most difficult Polaris ballot they’ve ever submitted. The results of this careful and passionate deliberation will make for some truly engaging listening for music lovers.
