Mercury Prize Nominations

The nominations for this years Mercury Prize was announced this morning. It’s a rather wonderful list I think, including my favourites Laura Marling, Mumford and Sons along with some other brilliant albums such as The XX, Villagers and chart-topper Mr Dizzee Rascel. Here is a selection of videos from this years nominees.

And just for the guilty pleasure…

The full nominations are…

Dizzee Rascal – Tongue N’ Cheek
The xx – xx
Paul Weller – Wake Up the Nation
Corinne Bailey Rae – The Sea
Mumford and Sons – Sigh No More
Laura Marling – I Speak Because I Can
Foals – Total Life Forever
Wild Beasts – Two Dancers
Biffy Clyro – Only Revolutions
Villagers – Becoming a Jackal
Kit Downes Trio – Golden
I Am Kloot – Sky at Night

Bets at the moment are on Dizzee and the XX but I am totally rooting for Miss Marling. Amazing amazing album and she really deserves it.
