The shortlist is
Bell X1 "Flock" (Island)
Cane 141 "Moonpool" (Exceptional)
The Chalets "Check-In" (Setanta)
Joe Chester "A Murder of Crows" (Barp)
Duke Special "Adventures In Gramophone" (Hag)

The winners will be announced at Vicar St on the 28th February. All bands will play on the night (apart from The Chalets who are currently touring with Kaiser Chiefs), and tickets cost €25 to head down.
Who do YOU want to win? Personally, I'd like to see The Chalets or HAL get it.
