$20K For He Poos Clouds As Best Canadian Album

Final Fantasy's album He Poos Clouds won the first Polaris Music Prize Monday night in Toronto. The Prize was awarded for the best album in Canada, "based solely on artistic merit, without regard to genre or record sales."

Owen Pallett, the man behind the Final Fantasy moniker, kiddingly said he anticipates the win will double album sales. Hopefully for his colleagues at Blocks Recording Club, he was not kidding when he mentioned his intention to share the cash winnings with them.
