Plug Awards Celebrate Indies’ Best

The annual Plug music award nominations are out.  Celebrating almost every permeation of the Indy alternative music scene, the nominations include such current "it" artists as Antony And The Johnsons, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, and Devendra Banhart.  But for industry junkies like Hypebot it’s the nominations for media and record labels that us excited. And while your checking out the list ask yourself, "How many of these have I ever heard of?" and "What does that say about me?".
