Shortlist Music Prize Nominees Announced

By Staff on March 8, 2007


175enigk082306 Today the initial nominees for the sixth annual Shortlist Music Prize were unvelied. The list will be pared down to ten finalists next month, and the winner will be announced later in the spring. Any album released in the U.S. in 2006 was eligible for nomination, as long as it had not been certified gold for domestic sales of 500,000 units. FILTER staff faves which made the list include Cat Power, Belle & Sebastian, Jeremy Enigk, The Decemberists, Mew, and Tom Waits.

What album do you think should take home the prize?

Check out the full list of nominees after the jump. Oh, and if the folks at Shortlist are listening, Howling Bells have never actually released anything in the U.S., so it doesn't really meet the rules.
