A great year for Indie – Mercury Music Award 2004

July 21st, 2004

The Mercury Music prize nominations reveal a great selection of albums from the last year. Most are already in my collection and it’d be hard to choose beween things like Dear Catastrophe Waitress and Franz Ferdinand to be honest. The obligatory Mercury Music sampler CD will be a pretty enjoyable listen this year!

This year’s nominations:

I didn’t actually realise that Robert Wyatt was still making music. If you’re into rather weird, trippy stuff then check out some of Wyatts stuff from the 60s. You will be needing drugs.
