The Mercury Music Prize nominees are here
Welcome to this year’s round of the Mercury Music Prize, in which a body of judges tries to outdo each other for being achingly trendy. This year’s panel included Stormzy, so maybe there’s hope.
And here’s the finalists:
Anna Calvi – ‘Hunter’
Black Midi – ‘Schlagenheim’
Cate Le Bon – ‘Reward’
Dave – ‘Psychodrama’
Foals – ‘Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost Pt. 1’
Fontaines D.C. – ‘Dogrel’
Idles – ‘Joy as an Act of Resistance’
Little Simz – ‘Grey Area’
Nao – ‘Saturn’
The Seed Ensemble – ‘Driftglass’
Slowthai – ‘Nothing Great About Britain’
The 1975 – ’A Brief Enquiry Into Online Relationships’
As you can see, there’s some great albums, like Idles, and some bad ones, like The 1975. If you like a bet, you can, if you like to discover the award body had better have produced a Spotify list by now.
