Mercury Music Prize 2012!

Alt - J

The shortlist for the 2012 Mercury Music Prize has been anounced! The final award for the £20,000 prize will be announced on 1st November.
The nominations are..
Alt-J – 'An Awesome Wave'
Richard Hawley – 'Standing On The Sky’s Edge'
Plan B - 'Ill Manors'
Sam Lee – 'Ground Of Its Own'
Lianne La Havas – 'Is Your Love Big Enough?'
Django Django – 'Django Django'
The Macabees – 'Given To The Wild'
Ben Howard – 'Every Kingdom'
Jessie Ware – 'Devotion'
Roller Trio – 'Roller Trio'
Field Music – 'Plum'
Michael Kiwanuka – 'Home Again' I am well chuffed that two of my favourite albums Ben Howard's 'Every Kingdom' and Alt J's 'An Awesome Wave' have been nominated! But to be honest out of the two, I reckon Alt J have the advantage because it is ALWAYS an obscure artist! I like to see that I have actually heard of a lot of the list!


  1. What a great set of nominations :) Alt-J, The Maccabees, Ben Howard, Django Django, Michael Kiwanuka... all so good!

  2. I know! I can't wait to see who wins now!
