2014 Mercury Prize Nominees

mercOk, time to check out some new music as selected by the Mercury Prize Committee.  The nominees for best British and Irish music make an interesting (and sort of diverse) play list:




1.  ANNA CALVI  “Eliza”  (from One Breath 2013).  This is her second nomination.  I can see why they like her so much.


2.  BOMBAY BICYCLE CLUB  “Luna”  (from So Long, See You Tomorrow 2014).


3.  DAMON ALBARN  “Mr. Tembo”  (from Everyday Robots 2014).


4.   EAST INDIA YOUTH  “Dripping”  (from Total Strife Forever 2014).


5.  FKA TWIGS  “Two Weeks”  (from LP1 2014).


6.  GOGO PENGUIN  “Garden Dog BBQ”  (from V2.0 2013).  Whoa!  Jazz!


7.  JUNGLE  “Time”  (from Jungle 2014).


8.  KATE TEMPEST  “The Beigeness”  (from Everybody Down 2014).  This is awesome.


9.  NICK MULVEY  “Fever To The Form”  (from First Mind 2014).


10.  POLAR BEAR  “Be Free”  (from Each And Every One 2014).  Whoa, more jazz!


11.  YOUNG FATHERS  “Get Up”  (from Dead 2014).


12.  ROYAL BLOOD  “Out Of The Black”  (from Royal Blood 2014).
