NME Awards

Mrs W loves this time of year musically – all the lists of new acts to keep an ear out for, festival announcements (how good does Coachella look this year?!)  and she gets to vote in the NME Awards!

It’s always so hard isn’t it, choosing between great stuff.  It renders Mrs W almost paralysed with indecision.  (She’s a nightmare to go out to a restaurant with too!)

So, here is the list of what we think might win… *

  • Best British Band – Arctic Monkeys
  • Best International Band – Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
  • Best Solo Artist – Lorde
  • Best New Band – Chvrches
  • Best Live Band -Haim
  • Best Album – QOTSA ‘…Like Clockwork’ **
  • Best Track – Daft Punk ‘Get Lucky’
  • Best Festival – Reading & Leeds
  • Best TV Show – Breaking Bad ***
  • Best Music Film – Sound City
  • Best Reissue – Nirvana ‘In Utero 20th Anniversary Edition’
  • Best Band Blog or Twitter – James Blunt
  • Best Small Festival – Festival Number 6
  • Music Moment of the Year – Pussy Riot freed
  • Worst Band – The 1975
  • Hero of the Year – Pussy Riot
  • Villain of the Year – Vladimir Putin

What do you think?  Are you interested in things like this?  Will you be voting?  Have a look here the full list and let us know….

* Just as an aside – this isn’t necessarily what Mrs W voted for but who we collectively thought would win…

** This was a close call and was between this and Arctic Monkeys AM

*** Another close one, this time between this and Game Of Thrones
