Mercury Prize shortlist announced in the morning


It’s been a great year for music.  Even British music. Here’s what I’d predict to see on it.

Field Music

Tracey Thorn

Paul Weller (not that great though)

Massive attack

Hot Chip

Bombay Bicycle Club

British Sea Power

Four Tet

Frightened Rabbit

Corrine Bailey Rae (not great but has a sympathy vote)

Laura Marling

Potico Quartet

Wild Beasts

Oh, and Mumford and Sons for the Pop vote

(I have no real insight into Jazz, classical and folk to predict what reps they will have but that Polar Bear chappie is quite productive so might see him.)

And my predicted winner from that?

Laura Marling, (or Feild Music or Wild Beasts or Hot Chip)

Let’s see in the morning eh!

Come on folks. Don't just sit there gawping. Say something. Get involved.
