Jake Bugg @ Bowery Ballroom, 1/14/2013
Although his self-titled debut album is not out in the USA yet, that didn't stop the sold out crowd from singing along to his European hits "Taste It," "Country Song," and "Lightning Bolt." I'll be posting a video from the show in the coming days so stay tuned. Jake Bugg is so talented and again when you consider how young he is and how great he already sounds, it will blow your mind. As I tend to do when I go to concerts, I had the opportunity to tell Jake Bugg how great his show was and he was extremely cool. - [According to G]UK charts-topping youngster Jake Bugg played a sold-out show Bowery Ballroom last night (1/14), his first NYC show with his band. (He played solo acoustic at The Slipper Room back in December.) If you've got free time this afternoon, you can see Jake Bugg at The Living Room today (1/15) at 4 PM. The show is free but it would probably be wise to get there early as it is a tiny venue (that won't be around much longer at its current location).

Alt-J at Mercury Lounge in May (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
Big day for award nominations. The Oscars announced theirs this morning and the Brit Awards just wrapped up their ceremony for 2013 nominations, with Emeli Sandé grabbing four and Mumford & Sons and Alt-J each getting three. All three of those artists were nominated for British Album of the Year, a list that also included Paloma Faith and Plan B. If you don't know, The Brits are basically the UK's equivalent of the Grammys, though nominees are all British apart from a few "International" awards.
Jessie Ware, Muse, and Adele each got two nominations, and single-digit noms went to Bat for Lashes, The xx, Richard Hawley and The Vaccines.
The entire 2013 Brit Awards nominees list is below.

Jake Bugg @ The Slipper Room, 12/6/2012
While he has toured parts of America already, opening for Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, 18-year-old UK sensation Jake Bugg just made his NYC live debut, solo acoustic style, last Thursday (December 6) at the Slipper Room where he played a set of songs from his debut album (which went to #1 over there). We've got pictures from this intimate show (including opener Aaron Lee Tasjan) in this post, as well as video of him doing "Trouble Town."
Q Magazine put out their Top 50 albums of 2012 list, choosing to do so in no particular order this year, making it more a pile than a list. Check out Q's picks in alphabetical order below.
The story goes that 18-year-old Jake Bugg - born Jacob Kennedy - picked up an acoustic guitar a few years ago and found himself writing songs in the urban-troubadour mould of Bob Dylan and Woody Guthrie, with a touch of skiffle madness to leaven the folk-pop tales of Nottingham housing estates. Instead of heeding a friend's advice to audition for Britain's Got Talent, he plugged away at small gigs until he caught the attention of a label. Before you could say "shades of Lonnie Donegan", he was No 1 in the album chart, and being touted as the antidote to manufactured pop.18-year-old singer-songwriter Jake Bugg hails from Nottingham, UK and is one of the biggest success stories of the year over there. Last month his eponymous album debuted at #1 in the UK charts, knocking Mumford & Sons out of the top spot and made it to #9 on NME's Top 50 LPs of 2012 list.
The back-story is probably true enough, but there is also the stamp of marketing intervention: the flop-top haircut is too L'Uomo Vogue and the sepia album photography too artful to be self-generated. Moreover, most of his tunes are co-writes with professionals such as Iain Archer. What's not in doubt is his talent. For 50 minutes, Bugg transfixes a horribly humid Koko, and if he's not quite Dylan, nor is he some pretty mannequin. - [The Guardian]
Jake Bugg just wrapped up a North American tour with Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds and Snow Patrol (it didn't hit NYC) and has a couple NYC shows coming up. He will play The Slipper room on December 6 (tickets still available) and has just announced a headlining show at happening Bowery Ballroom on January 14. Tickets to that show go on AmEx presale today at noon with a regular on-sale on Friday (11/30). No other North American shows at the moment.
Long-running UK music weekly NME has just published their Year-End issue and have named Tame Impala's Lonerism as album of the year, with Grimes, Frank Ocean, Crystal Castles and Alt-J rounding out the Top 5. Tame Impala offshoot Pond comes in at #7. Check out the entire Top 50 list below.
