US Shortlist of Music


I think any and every music blogger will be talking about this list today.  In it’s 7th year now, but I’m not so sure the Shortlist has quite the same impact as the Mercury Prize.  Will anyone care outside the blogger community?

Here are the project the listmakers have chosen (all selling fewer than 500,000 copies):

Arcade Fire – Neon Bible
Burial – Untrue
Feist – The Reminder
Justice – Cross
LCD Soundsystem – Sound Of Silver
M.I.A. – Kala
Spoon – Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga
Stars – In Our Bedroom After The War
Wilco – Sky Blue Sky
Working For A Nuclear Free City – Businessmen And Ghosts

Any predictions?
