Choice Music Prize Announced Tonight

The Choice Music Prize 2012 for Irish album of the year will be announced tonight (March 8th). The event itself is Dublin’s Olympia Theatre and is sold out. For those not attending, the show is live on Paul McCloone’s show on Today FM from 7pm this evening.

The nominations for the award are as follows: And So I Watch You From Afar-Gangs, Bell X1Bloodless Coup, Cashier No. 9-To The Death of Fun, Lisa HanniganPassenger, The Japanese PopstarsControlling Your Alliegance, JapeOcean Of Frequency, Patrick Kellagher & His Cold Dead HandsGolden Syrup, PugwashThe Olympus Sounds, TieranniesaurTieranniesaur and We Cut Corners-Today I Learned I Could Go Home Backwards. 

All the albums are really good, so it is hard to make predictions. If I was going for my favourite, I would want We Cut Corners to win because I love them. If I was going for a sentimental win, it would be Bell X1 for all the years they’ve been nominated. The ones I probably think will win are Cashier No.9. They are the favourites. I’ll have the results updated later on in some dreamy state.

Video: We Cut Corners-‘Toll Free’

These guys are one of my favourite Irish bands of the last little while. We Cut Corners are supporting The Maccabees in the Academy Dublin tomorrow night and this video for ‘Toll Free’ is really cool. Of course they are nominated for the 2012 Choice Music Prize
