Speech Debelle wins Mercury Prize


I went to the bookies tonight, not having listened to Speeche’s album but having a wee hunch she might win, even though she was an outsider.  Imagine my horror when I discovered that she had risen to second favourite to the unlikely favourite Florence and the Machine.  Anyway, my search for value meant I had to (stupidly) look elsewhere.

I alighted on Lisa Hannigan.

She lost.

So, I spotified Speech.

Bugger me.  What a lovely, really beautiful piece of music this album is.

I take it all back.  She should have been odds on.

Honesttly, it’s a stunning and totally engaging record.  It”s quite emotional.
