2010 mercury prize nominees are in…


as far as i’m concerned, this is the xx’s contest to lose (even if they did crib all of their best tricks from chromatics). however, knowing the judges, whose picks in the past seemed to indicate that they are in fact from another planet, they’ll probably go with kit downes trio. yeah, i don’t know who they are either.

here’s the full list of nominees this year:
