Very predictable shortlist. Jon Hopkins is my favourite by a country mile.
I have a feeling they'll go for David Bowie, but Savages should win this.
Digging: Swain - The Long Dark Blue
Bowie was always going to be nominated, but I think they'll go for Disclosure.
I remember how The Guardian went apeshit a couple of years ago when they wanted Bring Me the Horizon to get nominated and they got overlooked.
Digging: Band-Maid - YOLO
I can imagine them going for Bowie...
Oh hey, it's the most redundant UK award outside of the BRIT awards.
Digging: Those Darn Gnomes - The Zodiac
Jon Hopkins would win this in a perfect world. Unfortunately we live on Earth.
I feeeeeeeeel like James Blake will probably win
Woah chill out phone. I guess I was drunk texting last night.
Foals will win
Digging: $uicideboy$ and Getter - Radical $uicide
actually probably Disclosure
one of those two anyway
I think Mvula will win. I'd like James Blake or Savages. Still havent heard Jon Hopkins but I'm told he's awesome
Fucking Settle lol
James Blake also has a decent shot
What, Mumford and sons weren't nominated . . . Bowie can't win because the winner of the Mercury Prize historically goes on to do nothing, and you know Bowie won't be doing nothing.
Digging: Ryley Walker - Golden Sings That Have Been Sung
