A great year for Indie – Mercury Music Award 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:
- Basement Jaxx Kish Kash
- Belle & Sebastian Dear Catastrophe Waitress
- Franz Ferdinand Franz Ferdinand
- Jamelia Thank You
- Keane Hopes And Fears
- Snow Patrol Final Straw
- Joss Stone The Soul Sessions
- The Streets A Grand Dont Come For Free
- Ty Upwards
- Amy Winehouse Frank
- Robert Wyatt Cuckooland
- The Zutons Who Killed…The Zutons
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.
