The Barclaycard Mercury Awards are the only music awards I really care about, and I’m very excited to see the list of ‘possible’ nominations according to NME.com
My personal favorites:
Jungle – By Jungle
Solid smooth electronic music. Some trip hop elements that are pretty fun.
Wild Beats – Present Tense
Really great album, though their previous album ‘Smother’ is one of my all time favorite albums, but this is still a really good album.
Royal Blood – Royal Blood
Holy cow, a Rock album that just rocks. This album has become a great album to work out to, and it reminds me of Muse mixed with Rage Against The Machine with a slight Jack White vibe.
East India Youth – Total Strife Forever
Really interesting classical-electronic style music. Not easy listening but if you are into more ambient style music, you may like this one.
