Sweet Hell - Mercury 2007  
This year's Mercury Nominations have been released, and ho-hum:

Arctic Monkeys - Favourite Worst Nightmare
Dizzee Rascal - Maths and English
The View - Hats Off to the Buskers
Maps - We Can Create
Bat For Lashes - Fur and Gold
Klaxons - Myths of the Near Future
Jamie T - Panic Prevention
The Young Knives - Voices of Animals and Men
Fionn Regan - The End of History
Basquiat Strings with Seb Rochford - Basquiat Strings
Amy Winehouse - Back to Black
New Young Pony Club - Fantastic Playroom


Needless to say, Arctic Monkeys and Whinehouse are favourites. It's an annoyingly mainstream list - normally the Mercurys is the one award that will nominate more obscure genres/acts, but this year, it could be the index of the NME. And quite possibly is.

I'm gunning for Bat For Lashes or Young Knives myself.
Current Music: What's A Girl To Do - Bat For Lashes

I think something like Bat For Lashes would be a more interesting pick but I'd almost put money that it'll be Wino.

I know. It's so depressing. I mean, yay for female solo artists who are actually talented, but I do not rate Winehouse at all. My personal taste, I guess, but she's so boring and unoriginal. And, okay, yeah, I'm a little bit in love with Natasha Khan so I'm very biased, but come on! She deserves it for "Priscilla" alone.
