Klaxons, Kings Of Leon and Feist have been named among the nominees for the 2007 Shortlist Prize.

The award, thought of as a US equivalent to the Mercury Music Prize, has previously been given to Damien Rice, Sufjan Stevens, Cat Power and TV On The Radio.

A 'longlist' of 55 nominees is initially drawn up, with records only considered if they were released in the US between January and November last year and have not been certified gold for domestic sales of 500,000 units.

The shortlist is drawn up by a panel, with Snow Patrol frontman Gary Lightbody and The Killers' drummer Ronnie Vannucci this year part of the team responsible for whittling the long list down to a final crop of ten.

Previous listmakers for the Shortlist Prize, now in its seventh year, include Beck, Panic! at the Disco, Damon Albarn and Chris Martin.
