SAY Award 2018


#1

Submission period for albums ends at midnight, in case anyone wants to submit an album they think should be considered (I’d imagine most of the big hitters are already on there, this will probably just be if you know of some underappreciated indie album).

Hmm… I do feel something is missing from it, but can’t remember what. I’ll be scouring my ipod this evening.

Just saw that the shortlist will be announced at a free gig in Glasgow’s George Square during the European Championships.
