2003 SHORTLIST FINALISTS ANNOUNCED:
Black Keys, Bright Eyes, Cat Power, Cody Chestnutt,
Floetry, Interpol, Damien Rice, Sigur Ros, The Streets
and Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

Anyone have opinions on these bands??
I enjoyed the Yeah Yeah's & The Streets CDs
I could never get into Interpol or the new Sigur Ros??
The Black Keys were cool grimy kind of blues & there's a song by Bright Eyes called Method Acting that I enjoyed quite a bit.

I wish The Rapture were nominated?? Haven't heard anything quite like them in a while :o

Music Prize Targets Niche Artists

By NEKESA MUMBI MOODY, AP Music Writer

NEW YORK (AP) - In an industry that obsesses over first-week album sales, heavy MTV rotation and radio airplay, the Shortlist Music Prize is trying to help offbeat or niche recording artists find a wider audience.

Now in its second year, the contest taps successful musicians to champion the work of peers who have yet to make an impact on the charts.

2002 nominees were Bjork, N.E.R.D., The Flaming Lips, Cee-Lo, Zero 7, Doves, The Hives, Aphex Twin, The Avalanches and DJ Shadow.

The Shortlist prize is modeled loosely on Britain's Mercury Music Prize, which honors the best in British music — usually artists whose critical acclaim outpaces their commercial appeal.

But while the Mercury is selected by critics and industry types, Sarig and Spotts also enlisted artists known for slightly off-kilter music. The Shortlist listmakers select a handful of discs each; eligible albums must not have sold more than 500,000 copies. Their selections are then whittled down to a "shortlist" of 10.
