Welcome to my personal website. Who am I again?

Mercury prize series 2016

In common with previous years (although not for the last couple of years), I’ve decided to listen to all the Mercury Prize nominees and write up a brief review of each.

The shortlist is below. My aim is write a review per day over the next week and a bit. I probably won’t, but it’s good to have aims.

  • Anohni - ‘Hopelessness’
  • Bat For Lashes - ‘The Bride’
  • David Bowie - ‘Blackstar’
  • Jamie Woon - ‘Making Time’
  • Kano - ‘Made in the Manor’
  • Laura Mvula - ‘The Dreaming Room’
  • Michael Kiwanuka - ‘Love & Hate’
  • Radiohead - ‘A Moon Shaped Pool’
  • Savages - ‘Adore Life’
  • Skepta - ‘Konnichiwa’
  • The 1975 - ‘I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it’
  • The Comet Is Coming - ‘Channel the Spirits’
