nash.gifXFM have announced the shortlist for their New Music Award, designed to recognise the best UK debut album of 2007. Listeners have been voting for their choices recently, and the shortlist is:
Air Traffic ‘Fractured Life’
The Enemy ‘We’ll Live and Die In These Towns’
Frank Turner ‘Sleep Is For The Week’
Kate Nash ‘Made Of Bricks’
Klaxons ‘Myths Of The Near Future’
The Maccabees ‘Colour It In’

The Wombats ‘Proudly Present.. A Guide To Love, Loss and Desperation’
