Delerentos - In Love with DetailDry County - Unexpected Falls

The Flaws - Achieving VaguenessDavid Geraghty - Kill Your Darlings

Kila - Gambler’s BalletRoisin Murphy - Overpowered

Stanley Super 800 - Louder & ClearerSuper Extra Bonus Party - Super Extra Bonus Party

So the nominations for the Choice Music Prize, awarding the best Irish albums of 2007, have been announced. Nialler and I got seven of our predicted ten correct which isn’t a bad score. The three neither of us guessed were David Geraghty, Kila & Super Stanley 800. Although, I had considered David Geraghty, I would have never predicted Kila or Stanley Super 800.

It’s an interesting list and fairly wide open. The smart short money will probably be on Cathy Davey. The gambling man, however, might risk a punt on Stanley Super 800 to sneak up from behind and snatch the gold medal. I do think it’s a shame that neither So Cow or Mumblin’ Deaf Ro have been included, if not hugely surprising.

The prize will be announced on February 27th in Vicar Street.
