We were delighted to hear of East India Youth’s Mercury nomination last night, and luckily have a chance to see him live coming up. That happens on November 13th (two weeks after the winner is announced) at Heaven. 

His live show is something special and well worth seeing. Grab tickets here.

This year’s Mercury Music Prize shortlist has been unveiled and includes Eat Your Own Ears act Jon Hopkins! Also nominated are Field Day faves Foals, Savages and Disclosure

We’re delighted for them, and can’t wait to see who wins in November.
Check out Jon Hopkins picking tunes for our Rinse FM Field Day show recently.

We’re hugely excited at the nomination of Django Django last night for this year’s Mercury Prize. The EYOE and Field Day favourites join Lianne La Havas (Apple Cart Festival) and Jessie Ware (Field Day) on an interesting list, missing a good deal of our tips that we posted last week, but as always the panel challenge and surprise in equal measure.
