The Mercury Prize nominees are announced on Tuesday, June 21, and I'll post the result on Sound Advice as soon as I get it, as well as my reaction.
Who would you like to see shortlisted?

Personally I'd be chuffed to see Late Of The Pier and Future Of The Left on the shortlist.
Also, because every year they stick in a token folk and a token jazz album, I'm blogging about some of the folk and jazz contenders over the next few days.
Let me know what you think of my choices, Sound Offers...

I can't seem to locate this years list on the official Website or anywhere else.
Any ideas?

THE 12 album shortlist for the Mercury Prize 2009 has been revealed.
Contesting the competition this year 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
From the list, I'd like to see Kasabian walk away with the gong.
Also, I must smugly point out I called The Invisible.

I read an itnerview with her the day before that said she was going to throw a wobbly if she didn't win. I imagine that is the main reason she got it.
