American Shortlist Music Prize Nominees Uncovered

Published: 2008-01-31
A few weeks ago the long list nominees for the American Shortlist Prize were announced with several Canadian acts in the running. The 10 finalists were announced this week and a few of those same Canadian artists have made the cut and stayed in the running for the award, which will be given out in February.

Arcade Fire and their record, Neon Bible, Stars' In Our Bedroom After the War as well as Feist's The Reminder are the Canadians making up 3 of the 10 finalists who will be considered for the American equivalent of Britain's Mercury Prize. The rest of the top 10 are rounded out by Justice, Wilco, Spoon, LCD Soundsystem, MIA, Burial and Working for a Nuclear Free City. Judges for this year's Shortlist Music Prize include members of The Killers and Snow Patrol.
