Choice Mercury Music Prize 2009 Nominations Announced

The 12 album shortlist for the Mercury Prize 2009 was announced earlier today. The lucky 12 are:

● Bat For Lashes - Two Suns
● Florence and the Machine - Lungs
● Friendly Fires - Friendly Fires
● Glasvegas - Glasvegas
● The Horrors - Primary Colours
● The Invisible - The Invisible
● Kasabian - West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Aslyum
● La Roux - La Roux
● Led Bib - Sensible Shoes
● Lisa Hannigan - Sea Sew
● Speech Debelle - Speech Therapy
● Sweet Billy Pilgrim - Twice Born Man

I'd love to see our own Lisa Hannigan take it away, but it's good to see no huge acts on it this year (like Radiohead in other years). Also, Sweet Billy Pilgrim Led Bib, and Speech Deblle will no doubt appreciate the publicity. Apart from Lisa the best album there, for me, is Bat for Lashes. Incredible record.
