Me and Hanson: We'll go dancing

At the moment, there's a lot of talk in the U.S. about endorsements. Not just who's endorsing Obama or McCain, but on the radio yesterday, I heard about which Union is supporting which candidate for Circuit Court Judge. It's on all levels.

So, to that end, here's my big revelation. The Mercury Music Prize shortlist was announced today, and it's my pleasure to announce that the nominee that gets my support is... Laura Marling. She'd be a worthy winner, tough on crime and lenient on foreign policy. Also, 'The Captain and Hourglass' is fuckin' awesome.

You could have predicted that, obviously. (I also like BSP and Elbow, though)

Here's a song that's not on her album, though. A live Kimya Dawson cover, complete with fluffed lyrics, laughter, and Nick Valensi shout out.

Hanson? As in Mmmbop Hanson? I want to go dancing with them as well. I hear they know where the love is.

You already know how much I adore Laura Marling and not merely because our names are similar. But really? You're not supporting Elbow? Didn't you just YELL AT ME FOR NOT WANTING ALL OF THEIR CDS?
