WINNER!!
CSS- Cansei de ser Sexy
These Brazilians kick arse (or lick arse)! They bring a whole new meaning to cool, hell don't we all want to be just like them. There rude, dirty and so so sexy. Girls have ruled the Indie rock scene this year so it's fitting a mostly girl group take the top prize.




RUNNER UP
The Mint Chicks- Crazy? Yes! Dumb? No!
A close second! This album is so catchy, every song has been stuck in my head at some stage this year. The Mint Chicks might be a bit obscure to folks outside New Zealand and Australia but if you have any sense you'll check them out real soon.



HONOURABLE THIRD
Gomez- How We Operate
While many critic's wrote Gomez off long ago, How We Operate saw Gomez returning to their Mercury Prize winning best. This album was my number 1 for a long time, it's poetical musicainship at it's very best. I'm not ashamed to be a massive Gomez fan



NOT TO BE FORGOTTEN
Yeah Yeah Yeahs- Show Your Bones
We all fell in love with Karen O when we saw her in the video for 'Gold Lion'. With a fresh energetic lease on life the YYY's were back. Karen O screeched and danced all over the record and with Nick Zinner and Brian Chase they made a masterpiece.

Hooray for The Mint Chicks. I feel guilty for not having bought this album yet despite being a huge fan (I actually own a fan site) and saw them last night (they were great). But I'm making sure I purchase it when I get to the record store soon along with Die! Die! Die!'s new one.
