So le Mercuré returns tomorrow morning with another 12 albums of presumed ~high quality~ Does anyone still care? or knew it was happening? either way I still follow it with interest even despite some previous mishaps (if they expect me to forgive that Get To Heaven snub then quite frankly they can GET TO HELL)

a list of potential contenders:
Sampha (dead cert)
Stormzy (dead cert)
Kate Tempest
Laura Marling
The xx
Richard Dawson
Rag'n'Bone Man (they like to have a commercial success or two on there)
Idles
Loyle Carner
Wiley
Bonobo / Kelly Lee Owens (one of the two)
Slowdive
Alfa Mist (the 'jazz pick')
Gorillaz

personal wishlist - Mura Masa (could happen), Glass Animals (maybe?), Jamie T (unlikely), Dutch Uncles (also unlikely), Kero Kero Bonito (about as likely as me winning the buzzrate, but just imagine)

winner announced on September 14th ~

Hopefully this is the year that Public Service Broadcasting is finally recognised for the Mercury. Would love to see Ten Fé, but I doubt they'd be there.

Rooting for Laura Marling here, "Semper Femina" is my favourite album she's put out thus far.

UGH, Ed.
All about Sampha for me.
It's a shame to not see Laura Marling on there, will this be her first album to not be on the list? Would've been great to see Mura Masa on there too but I wasn't sure it was that likely.

A Creature I Don't Know from 2011 and Short Movie from 2015 both missed out on the shortlist.

Ed Sheeran?! Lol!

The xx, Glass Animals and Stormzy's are the albums I enjoy most off the list (of the ones I've heard)

Is there a time frame that an album has to be released in to be eligible? Just wondering that, because these albums were released in the last couple of weeks, maybe they'll be eligible for next year?

I think it's just the last 12 months from last July, maybe give or take a few weeks from when the shortlist comes out. I remember the Arctic Monkeys being nominated just a few weeks after their album came out.

lol @ Ed Sheeran, I get that it's trying to get a younger audience back on board but still :') Glass Animals up tho <3

Nice to see Blossoms and Glass Animals in this list! Never expected The Big Moon at all but it's a welcome addition. And of course The xx heart.gif

Bumping this as the result is announced tomorrow! It'll be broadcast on BBC Four from 9pm with BBC Radio 6 Music covering it from 7pm.

I want The xx to snatch this but will be happy with alt-J, Blossoms or Glass Animals too to be honest. Stormzy will be a surprise as I don't expect we will get another grime artist for a second consecutive year!
