As part of our forthcoming UG Awards 2012 post, we're asking readers to vote in a new category each day for a special post over the holidays.
Who was the best new act in 2012?
We want you to place a nomination in the comments and upvote the ones you agree with. The one with the highest number of up votes wins the award.
It doesn't matter when the act started out or if they've released EPs in the past, but their first full length album had to be released in 2012. Ideally, they haven't been covered by UG in previous years.
It doesn't have to be a band - it can be a solo artist or duo, if you like.
- Place ONE nominations per comment, or the upvotes won't count. You can place as many nominations as you want across different comments, though.
- Do a quick search of the page to make sure someone else didn't already nominate that act. Just scroll down to the bottom so all the comments have loaded, then do a search on the page (ctrl-f on a PC, cmd-f on a mac) for their name.
You're welcome to discuss the topic in the comments and reply to nominations, as usual.
Remember to vote in our other award categories too. The list so far:
Band of the Year
Guitarist of the Year
