  Mercury Prize 2009: to be announced at 11.30am ish

The Mercury Prize 2009 shortlist of 12 nominations will be announced at 11.30am in London today.

Twitter is the king of real-time search, so expect the nominations to reported on Twitter first: mercury prize - Twitter Search although Twingly Microblog search has a better interface: "mercury Prize" - Twingly Microblog Search

The BBC have a Mercury 2009 microsite in place: BBC - Mercury Prize 2009

Over the past couple of weeks BBC Music Blog has asked various music bloggers of their opinions of what albums should make this year's Mercury Prize shortlist.

Consensus turns out to be rather bland: BBC - BBC Music Blog: The Mercury Prize Shortlist of Shortlists

I have tagged links related to mercury prize 2009 @ mercury2009 [including many bloggers predictions lists]

The NME wade in to the debate, with a list of mixed quality: Who will be nominated for this year's Mercury Prize? | News | NME.COM

Here are NME.COM's 35 contenders - not counting the traditional folk, classical and jazz entries:

Bat For Lashes – 'Two Suns'
Bombay Bicycle Club – 'I Had the Blues But I Shook Them Loose'
Camera Obscura – 'My Maudlin Career'
David Holmes – 'The Holy Pictures'
Doves – 'Kingdom Of Rust'
Florence And The Machine – 'Lungs'

Roots Manuva – 'Slime And Reason'
Stuart Murdoch – 'God Help the Girl'
Take That – 'The Circus'
The Horrors – 'Primary Colours'
The Hours – 'See The Light'
The Phantom Band – 'Checkmate Savage'
The Week That Was – 'The Week That Was'
White Lies – 'To Lose My Life…'
Wiley – 'Grime Wave'

With the Mercury prize there are 3 sets of questions pre the shortlist that spring up. what you think will make the shortlist, what albums you would like to make the shortlist? and your own personal idealist list?

the first question of second guessing the judges, doesn't particularly interest me this year, unfortunately i expect the hyped Florence and the Machine to be in the shortlist.

probably will make it The Horrors, La Roux, John Paris & Pj Harvey

This year pre the shortlist: I would like too see the following artists: The Week that Was, Bat for Lashes, The Invisible and Mothlite

Other questions that be will be answered soon:

Will Lily Allen make it?, Patrick Wolf has previously been overlooked, maybe this time? will the twee Camera Obscura make it? will Diagonal represent prog rock, which hipster album will make it Late of the Pier or Friendly Fires? Will Pet Shop boys be included? looking for a newcomer try Speech Debelle? Michacu seems to be tipped by many bloggers as an outsider? jazz maybe Curious or Get The Blessing, although both Polar Bear and Acoustic Ladyland have eligible albums.

Other possible outsiders: The Emperor Machine, The Mummers, Official Secrets Act, Rolo Tomassi, Polly Scattergood

Will any of these make it: Paul White, David Holmes and Jon Hopkins

All will be revealed soon !

I have developed this list of over 200 albums: Mercury Prize 2009 Eligibility - Rate Your Music

Some Eligible Albums for the Mercury Music Prize 2009. i.e British or Irish Artists who released an album between July 28th 2008 and July 20th 2009.

Updated: July 21st 2009

Note: I am not endorsing all these albums ! This list is just an indication of some albums that are eligible. I have omitted some higher profile artists that I particularly don't rate.

I don't know which albums entered the competition.

Port Royal

2 Years have past in all our lives since the release of the port-royal's “afraid to dance” (Resonant) but the royals have been keeping very busy with writing, recording, touring the EU and Russia, as well as creating remixes for the likes of Ladytron and Felix Da Housecat. For “Dying in time” port-royal have expanded their sound to encompass the more electronically skewed perspectives of synth-pop and even techno while still holding steadfast to their roots and original core sound that has always laid somewhere between shoegaze and emotively soaring ambient. As the title may suggest there is an undercurrent of aching melancholy to the album, as if the band are expressing the feelings they have for the temporality of life's situations and feelings.

  Altair Nouveau - New Signing to DFA Records

Altair Nouveau - new signing to DFA Records: similar to Lindstrøm: Altair Nouveau on MySpace Music - futuristic cosmic space-disco

Press Release:

Altair Nouveau consists of one Brandon Mitchell, a young producer from the west coast currently residing in San Francisco. Altair Nouveau’s music, though designed with the dance floor in mind, still evokes a personal element. It is the combination of these elements that give Altair Nouveau his indistinguishable larger than life, spaced-out future disco sound sure to cause a dance floor frenzy.

Raised in the sprawling city of San Jose, California to musical parents. Mitchell grew up with the encouragement of his father, an electronic music teacher at the local community college. Brandon began educating himself by collecting albums from the likes of Giorgio Moroder, Vangelis, Ennio Morricone and John Carpenter. This gave way to newer acts such as In Flagranti, Prins Thomas, Lindstrom and several artists on DFA.

The title track ‘Space Fortress’ marks a bold and exciting introduction into the sonic landscape of Mr. Nouveau, combining G Funk, P Funk and a 4/4 disco foundation that adds up to something otherworldly altogether.

‘Showdown’ is a lush and melancholy electro track, with gentle chugging rhythms carrying you along and depositing the listener onto a bed of rich vocal harmonies.

The swirling jazz funk of ‘Sorcerer’ shines bright and shimmers with sharp and punchy synth melodies, sounding like Money Mark trying to teach Herbie Hancock to break dance. You know what I mean. This single is being co-released with the very talented Maelstrom (Eskimo, Mindless Boogie) via his own dance label called Solar Disco.

Joel McIver: Joel McIver | Interview | Lords Of Metal metal E-zine - Issue 94: July/August 2000

We usually publish interviews with bands and occasionally an interview with an organizer of a festival or something like that. It’s not that common to interview a writer. Since we review books that might be interesting for the readers of Lords of Metal on a monthly basis in the form of a special, we got the idea to conduct an interview with Joel McIver. We reviewed his book on Slayer this month and in the past we reviewed two other books by his hand. Since Joel is one of the more important writers of books on metal at this moment, we contacted him and it was no problem for him to tell a bit more about himself.
