BBC Sound of 2012 longlist plus Dublin gigs

The most carefully regarded of all the new acts lists, the BBC Sound poll rather put a foot wrong this year when it nominated the godawful Jessie J as the artist to watch on 2011. The longlist for 2012 has just been announced and is already attracting a fair degree of attention:

A$AP Rocky
Azealia Banks
Dot Rotten
Dry The River
Flux Pavilion
Frank Ocean (pictured)
Friends
Jamie N Commons
Lianne La Havas
Michael Kiwanuka
Niki & The Dove
Ren Harvieu
Skrillex
Spector
Stooshe

Dublin gig goers can check out a couple of the names on the list when Michael Kiwanuka plays The Sugar Club (with The Staves) on February 11th, with Lianne La Havas appearing at the same venue on March 10th.
