Mercury PrizeA lot of people look to the Mercury Prize for some of the years best music. The 2008 nominee shortlist has just been announced and there are a few on here that I haven’t even heard yet. Adele, Estelle, Laura Marling, Neon Neon, Portico Quartet and Rachel Unthink are among the ones I haven’t heard. Do you think the beloved Radiohead will unceremoniously win this years Mercury? I would hope that Elbow gets it for their amazing Seldom Scene Kid album.

Nominees:

  • Adele – 19
  • British Sea Power – Do You Like Rock Music?
  • Burial – Untrue
  • Elbow – The Seldom Scene Kid
  • Estelle – Shine
  • Last Shadow Puppets – The Age of the Understatement
  • Laura Marling – Alas I Cannot Swim
  • Neon Neon – Stainless Style
  • Portico Quartet – Knee Deep in the North Sea
  • Radiohead – In Rainbows
  • Rachel Unthank & The Winterset – The Bairns
