GAYNGS made this announcement via Twitter today:
And that's not all - more locals are up for the prize, including GAYNGS' Jagjaguwar labelmate Peter Wolf Crier, Cloud Cult and sorta-local S. Carey, as is Duluth band Trampled by Turtles, plus Free Energy and The Hold Steady (both of which have Minnesota roots). Vote for the albums by clicking here! NPR will reveal the results on December 14.
Also, Paste Magazine published their list of the "25 Best Music Videos of 2010" and Jeremy Messersmith's Star Wars-inspired video for "Tatooine" is number 22.
Keep 'em comin', guys!
