Brit Awards 2013 - Why They Were The Blandest Brits, And Who Should Have Won...

Awards ceremonies are supposed to make you laugh. They’re supposed to make you cry. They’re supposed to make you angry. They’re supposed to shock the living daylights out of you. They are supposed to provide some serious ‘water cooler’ moments for you to talk about at work the next day. Did The Brits do any of these things? Did they heck. The most animated we got last night was when we managed to muster up the energy to actually yawn.

Barclaycard Mercury Music Prize 2012: Our Predictions


Alt-J Ben Howard Django Django Field Music Lauren Laverne Maximo Park The Futureheads Jessie Ware Joker SBTRKT Michael Kiwanuka Terry Callier Plan B Richard Hawley Sam Lee Fairport Convention John Martyn The Maccabees

As the Barclaycard Mercury Music Prize 2012 draws near, we have a look at the shortlist and the likelihood of each act actually walking away with the prize. There’s no such thing as a done deal when it comes to the Mercury Music Prize; the ones that you think are the favourites never seem to walk away the title, the judging panel is very hard to second guess. But hey, that’s not going to stop us giving it a try!

Alt-J: An Awesome Wave

These quirky popsters have crept up on the public throughout 2012, and with their debut album garnering critical acclaim in all corners of the press, they’ve been pegged by many as the favourites to win. A recent survey conducted by Spotify showed that Alt-J’s tracks had been streamed more times that any other nominated artist. That doesn’t necessarily mean that they’re going to walk home with the prize though.

A Brief Run Down Of The Mercury Prize Favourites


Jessie Ware Richard Hawley Mercury Music Prize Alt-J Plan B Django Django The Maccabees Ben Howard Field Music Lianne La Havas Michael Kiwanuka Sam Lee

The Mercury Prize is set to be awarded tomorrow (1st Nov. 2012), and true to form and tradition, many of the artists in the nomination lists are ones that you may never have heard, or even heard of. As such, we thought it'd be useful to give you a brief breakdown of three acts topping the list of favourites, Alt-J, Richard Hawley and Jessie Ware

Jessie Ware's album 'Devotion' is nominated and 3rd in the favourites. Ware used to be a vocalist with drum and base act SBTRKT. Some of that synthy influence can be heard in this album, but the vocals hark back to the '80s and early '90s, though with her own twee stamp. 

Richard Hawley comes in second. He was originally in the Britpop band Longpigs and also played with Pulp for a few years before launching his solo career. He's nominated for his whimsically titled album 'Standing at the Sky's Edge'. Despite that whimsy, he has described this album as 'angry', to the Guardian. The guitars and vocals are verging on gritty, but angry? Not quite.

Is It A Sign? Spotify Users Vote Alt-J Favourites For Mercury Music Prize


Alt-J Jessie Ware Lianne La Havas Plan B Richard Hawley Dizzee Rascal Ben Howard Django Django Field Music Michael Kiwanuka The Maccabees Sam Lee

This Thursday (November 1, 2012), the winner of the Mercury Music will be announced. As a precursor to the official event, Spotify have taken a look at the streaming figures for all of the nominees, on their online streaming service and Alt-J have attracted more listeners than any of the other Mercury Music Prize nominees.

Of course, this doesn’t necessarily mean that the Mercury judging panel will have the same taste as Spotify’s listeners and Alt-J face fierce competition, even if they have pretty much been tipped as likely winners since the list was announced. Jessie Ware’s another newcomer with a strong chance, as is Lianne La Havas. Plan B and Richard Hawley are among the more experienced artists in there that also stand a strong chance. You should never count on the obvious choice when it comes to the Barclaycard Mercury Music Prize, after all. Remember the year that Dizzee Rascal won? How many of you saw that one coming?

Even Alt-J aren’t counting their chickens just yet. The band’s drummer Thom Green placed his expectations of the band winning the prize at a lowly 8.3% and admitted “We’d been tipped to win before we’d even been nominated, so the pressure was on.” A spokesperson for Spotify, Will Hope, said “We can't predict who the judges will pick to win this Thursday's Mercury Prize, but if it were up to music fans on Spotify, Alt-J would be the band picking up the award. Ben Howard is a close second based on recent streaming habits we've seen. We wish all nominees the best of luck!”

Various Artists, Communion: New Faces Album Review


The broad church that supports the collective assembly of Communion Records was only formed 6 years ago through the vision of Ben 'Mumford' Lovett, bassist Kevin Jones and producer Ian Grimble. From its early roots as a club night, it has now flourished into an umbrella that nurtures, produces and records some of the most interesting and individual emerging talents around. Communion Records has already had a helping hand in the development of Benjamin Francis Leftwich, Matthew And The Atlas, Alessi's Ark, Pete Roe and Lissie to name but a few. 'Communion: New Faces' represents the label's third full-length compilation and contains no less than 20 tracks from a diverse string of like-minded artists.

Ben Howard, Every Kingdom Album Review


Over the past few months there's been something of a buzz surrounding west country singer-songwriter Ben Howard, and his debut album Every Kingdom proves exactly the fine judgement of attendees of his many sell out gigs.

Every Kingdom opens with former single 'Old Pine' sounding delicately picked John Mayer-esque acoustic guitar with a gentle melody picked out over which ooh vocals gently ooze sounding resemblance to the likes of Bon Iver and Fleet Foxes with their warmth and ability to melt. The stunningly beautiful combination of this delicate guitar together with Howard's haunting vocal is instantly entrancing, especially when perfectly complemented by the later inclusion of cello. 'Diamonds' then opens in a bluesy atmospheric vein akin to Damien Rice and forthcoming tour mates Brother & Bones, with double bass and brushed drum accompaniment complete with ripples of atmospheric rolling cymbals before the track kicks into more of a stomping feel with a stronger, fast paced beat. A similar kind of atmospheric build is glimpsed later in 'Black Flies', of the albums' closing tracks.
