It's A Good Day!

Like Christmas, today is one of our favorite days of the year. The Mercury Prize nominees were announced this morning in London!
Since their inception in 1992, the annual Mercury Music Prize awards have set out to reward the best in British music, regardless of genre or style. An independent panel of judges (music industry experts, journalists, record company bosses and the like) selects twelve ‘Albums Of The Year’, before choosing one and announcing the overall winner on the night of the Mercury Music Show.
A few years ago, the U.S. started their own equivalent with the Shortlist Awards.
Some of our favoritest people in the world were nominated today, and we’d like to highlight a few.
Miz Amy Winehouse‘s Back To Black is definitely the front runner. If you haven’t heard Rehab yet, then we don’t know where you’ve been living.
Fionn Regan (pictured above) was nominated for The End of History, featuring the exquisite Be Good or Be Gone.
The wonderfully cooky Bat For Lashes got a nod for her Fur And Gold. If you haven’t yet, then definitely check out What’s A Girl To Do.
And, the feel-good New Young Pony Club were also nominated for their super fun Fantastic Playroom. Try and not dance to Ice Cream. It’s been out for a while, but it’s still the song of the summer!
