Radiohead, Skepta, The 1975 and the late David Bowie are the big names to have been shortlisted for the 2016 Hyundai Mercury Music Prize, with Adele and previous winner James Blake the notable absences.

The 12-strong shortlist, picked by a panel of music critics, industry figures and artists, was announced on Thursday morning (August 4th) on BBC Radio 6 Music. David Bowie’s 25th and final album Blackstar, released just two days before his death in January this year, is already being touted as one of the favourites to win the overall prize when the winner is announced on September 15th.

Radiohead’s recent album A Moon Shaped Pool makes the Oxford five-piece the most nominated act in Mercury Prize history. Their albums OK Computer, Amnesiac, Hail To the Thief and In Rainbows all made shortlists in previous years, and this doesn’t even count lead singer Thom Yorke’s nomination for his 2006 solo album The Eraser. However, they have not yet won the award.

Interview with Jame Woon

With the post-BBC Sound of 2011 hype that has pushed Jamie Woon up to the stratosphere you would be forgiven for dismissing him as the umpteenth flash in the pan, rushed into the light of the mainstream to capture a slice of the James Blake led pop-dubstep market. In reality, Jamie has been toiling for years after attending the much maligned BRIT School, developing his sound from raw loop-based soul to the bubbling, none-more-hip electronica that formed his debut full-length 'Mirrorwriting'.

Jamie Woon, Mirrorwriting Album Review


I saw Jamie Woon play in Leeds in the early 00s, when he'd managed to gain an underground reputation for his one-man Loop Station gigs, layering 8-part harmonies building to massive, beautiful electro-soul crescendos. I was both shocked and pleasantly surprised that he's now signed to Polydor, tipped by the BBC as one of the sounds of 2011 and crafted this stunning, restrained album with help from the likes of Burial.
