Nominees announced http://bit.ly/Neptune13
but a lot of people were arguing for records with far smaller budgets to be included (and they didn't get mentioned all that much by DiS readers when putting the longlist together)
democracy doesn't work.
Reckon Hookworms will win, people seemed to be going on about it a lot.
If I was choosing from those I've heard of the bunch I'd plump for Steve Mason but there's a few albums I haven't heard in there.
Come on, that thing's a bloody triumph.
Though that was in danger of being overlooked this year.
but I think TNP probably will (which I wouldn't mind at all).
The only record on that list I don't like is Daughter.
20 tracks with no dross. Nostalgic without being trite. I fucking love that record.
or Hookworms. But no Forest Swords / Factory Floor / King Krule? Hmph
