So this years nominations for the Choice Music prize have just been announced and since 2008 was one helluva year for strong Irish releases, I don't envy being a judge with this years album line up.
So here goes:
Fight Like Apes-Fight Like Apes & The Mystery Of The Golden Medallion
The Script-The Script
Mick Flannery-White Lies
RSAG Organic Sampler
Halfset-Another Way Of Being There
Oppenheimer-Take The Whole Mid-Range And Boost It
Messiah J And The Expert-From The Word Go
David Holmes-The Holy Pictures
Lisa Hannigan-Sea Sew
Hmm I think I will get on to paddy power and see what are on offer!
