Art Vinyl prize shortlist announced

Vinyl don't just sound better, as the Art Vinyl prize attests, they also look better.

Now in its 9th year, the Best Art Vinyl award looks to celebrate the best music artwork of the past 12 months - regardless of how good the music pressed on the record actually is. This year's shortlist includes Daft Punk's silhouetted Get Lucky and Paul McCartney's minimal New.

A total of 50 nominees for this year's prize will be displayed in the Art Vinyl Gallery in London's Broadway Market, before travelling around the UK in Malmaison hotels. Visitors will be able to vote for the eventual winner.

We don't even own a record deck, but we might buy a few of these just to enhance the look of the office. Here are ten of the very best:
