Mercury Prize – Nominees

It is with great pleasure that we announce here at musiclipse, the nominees to the Mercury Prize for 2012.

We were also relieved, because we know that this award continues to maintain its prestige and credibility, in other words, we found that distance which separates the Mercury from MTV and Brit awards.

After the well deserved win of PJ Harvey last year, here’s the list of the albums to the highest award of the most recent music, with an indication of the favourite , to succeed  Let England Shake.

  1. Alt-J – An Awesome Wave (5-1)
  2. Richard Hawley – Standing On The Sky’s Edge (4-1)
  3. Plan B – Ill Manors (4-1)
  4. Sam Lee – Ground Of Its Own (10-1)
  5. Lianne La Havas – Is Your Love Big Enough? (8-1)
  6. Django Django – Django Django (5-1)
  7. The Maccabees – Given To The Wild (7-1)

  10. Roller Trio – Roller Trio (10-1)
  11. Field Music – Plumb (10-1)
  12. Michael Kiwanuka – Home Again (8-1)

Regardless of the winner, for these artists it is already a great win and a reason to be proud being on this list, and for them congratulations for enriching the current music panorama.

will also receive £ 20 000.
