I thought it was good but not a good as there other albums, they are too big for the Mercury Prize now.

I would have liked to see Creeper get a nod but they aren't the sort of band to get these kind of nominations though.

I really liked that Creeper album, but yeah don't think it's the kind of thing the Mercury awards go for so not surprised by the omission.

Dry Cleaning are a notable omission there. Like, I know there’s been a ton of great post-punk stuff out over the past year and it can’t all be here, but they’re the one I would’ve thought made the cut over all. 

I couldn't get into Dry Cleaning, thought a couple of tracks were clever but it couldn't sustain over the course of a whole album for me.

This years Mercury Nominees have just been announced on 6 music. They are:

Arlo Parks – Collapsed In Sunbeams


Black Country, New Road – For the First Time

Celeste – Not Your Muse

Floating Points, Pharoah Sanders & The London Symphony Orchestra – Promises

Ghetts – Conflict Of Interest

Hannah Peel – Fir Wave

Laura Mvula – Pink Noise

Mogwai – As the Love Continues

Nubya Garcia – SOURCE 

SAULT – Untitled (Rise) 

Wolf Alice – Blue Weekend

Nothing I absolutely love on it, but a few albums for me to check out.

What's everyone thoughts?

Quite surprised by BERWYN making it, decent debut but too Drake-y I felt. My personal fav here is probably Floating Points but I'd be happy with Arlo Parks, BCNR, Ghetts, Nubya Garcia or SAULT winning it.

Although it's not as good as either of the albums they released last year I think SAULT might snap it up. 

I think Rise is the better of the 2 last year for me. Will they give it to them to see who shows up 🙂

Couple on the list I have not heard so something for the weekend.

I don't actually care who wins awards, unless it's me of course

Aye, I just read the list of nominees and presumed it was for 9. But given it's for Rise I think they should definitely win (although personally I preferred Black Is)
