With the 2007 RFT Music Awards showcase a mere two months away (save the date: June 3, from 2 p.m. onward in the Loop), it's time to unveil this year's nominees, which were compiled via a combination of my opinion and the thoughts of 70-plus musicians, venue employees and other music scene denizens. So without further ado, this year's nominees are:
Best Local Release (on a label): Blinded Black, Under the Sunrise (SideCho); Finn's Motel, Escape Velocity (Scat); Casey Reid, Cephalclog (Big Muddy); Sex Robots, Sex Robots (Roadhouse Tunes); So Many Dynamos, Flashlights (Skrocki); Target Market, No Thrills (Afternoon)
Best Local Release (self-released): Gentleman Auction House, The Rules Were Handed Down; Ghost in Light, After Fox Meadow; Jumbling Towers, Jumbling Towers; The Linemen, Through Side One; Nite Owl, Now You Can Boo Me; Red Water Revival, In the Frostbidden Years
