The Choise Music Prize shortlist was announced last night, during an agonizingly alphabetical show from Tom Dunne, which was all right for Adrian Crowley but not so great for Stanley Super 800 and Super Extra Bonus Party!

Here is the full list:

1. Adrian CrowleyLong Distance Swimmer
2. Cathy DaveyTales of Silversleeve
3. Delorentos In Love with Detail
4. Dry CountyUnexpected Falls
5. The Flaws Achieving Vagueness
6. David GeraghtyKill Your Darlings
7. Kila Gambler’s Ballet
8. Roísín MurphyOverpowered
9. Stanley Super 800 Louder and Clearer
10. Super Extra Bonus PartySuper Extra Bonus Party LP

Sinead Gleeson has a full list of the judges here. I’m also a bit bummed that Mumblin’ Deaf Ro didn’t make the list with The Herring & The Brine. But it’s a very strong list as it is.

The winner will be announced at Vicar Street on Wednesday 27th of February, with tickets costing a mere €27.00, which is rather good considering you’ll get to enjoy two live tracks from each of the nominees on the night.

Congratulations to everyone nominated, and best of luck to the judges who now have the difficult job of choosing the right album!
