The annual Aprize Music Awards has revealed its 2020 longlist. The statuette for the best release of the year can be received by both famous artists like DakhaBrakha, Alina Pash, Ivan Dorn, and new ones - Alexander Seleznov, Ragapop, The Lazy Jesus and others.
In addition to the decision of the expert jury, the audience’s opinion will also influence the voting. Anyone can vote for their favorite artist, get acquainted with the long list, and help choose the best release of the year starting today until February 14 at aprize.com.ua.
It is noted that this year, despite the quarantine, was rich in long plays (LP) and mini-albums (EP). To form the long list, the editorial staff of Radio Aristocrats listened to more than 600 new releases, and only 50 of them got to the list of albums that the audience will vote for this year.
Also, in the anniversary season, the organizers of the award, together with Tic Tac, are holding online concerts with the nominees who deserve to receive the award this year. This is an attempt to reveal famous artists from a new perspective, and for some for the first time to perform to a wide audience. In a new episode, ALLOISE presents their latest album, Bare Nerve. There are 6 bright songs about love, hate and relationships.
