On Tuesday, the Polaris Music Prize announced its 2013 short list, one that L.A. Times music writer Mikael Wood immediately (and problematically) dismissed as “terrible” and “white.” The Prize’s founder and Executive Director, Steve Jordan, otherwise pretty much summed up the standard split reception as “Great / terrible job everyone!”

So what are the albums making the list this year? In this new Polaris Music Prize infographic, we break down the who, what, and where of the ten finalists.
