Mercury Prize Nominees Announced

July 17th, 2007

Yes!!

NME has posted this year’s Mercury Prize nominees. Within the list are two former winners (last year’s Arctic Monkeys as well as Dizzee Rascal).

I am STRONGLY pulling for Maps, who no one has ever heard of, but bloody well should (I’ll post more on this tomorrow) as well as Klaxons, who I think are very strong contenders. Or MAYBE Jamie T, who I love and can’t wait to see at Virgin Fest.

The full list of nominees:
Arctic Monkeys Favourite Worst Nightmare
Klaxons Myths Of The Near Future
Amy Winehouse Back To Black
Maps We Can Create
The View Hats Off To The Buskers
Jamie T Panic Prevention
Dizzee Rascal Maths & English
Bat For Lashes Fur And Gold
Young Knives Voices of Animals And Men
Fionn Regan The End Of History
New Young Pony Club Fantastic Playroom
Basquiat Strings Basquiat Strings

The fact that I’ve heard all of these albums is a true testament to my anglophilia :)

The winner will be announced on September 4!
