Which album is going to be the best British album of 2016? Since 1992, a group of British critics and industry insiders award the Mercury Prize once a year. The 2016 shortlist was announced last week:

 

“Bowie received a posthumous nod for his Blackstar album, and Radiohead’s A Moon Shaped Pool earned the band a record fifth nomination (Thom Yorke and Co. have never won). Two grime LPs made the cut – Skepta’s Konnichiwa and Kano’s Made In The Manor – as did records from Laura Mvula, The 1975, Anohni and more”.

 

The shortlist will be winnowed from 12 to six albums. This year it’s the first time that one of these six will be determined by a popular vote.

 

On September 15, the winner will be announced.

Yo I'm Jazz and I just moved to London from Austria. As the daughter of a DJ I literally grew up loving music, especially vinyls! My heart beats for rock music but hey it's the 21st century and I think genres shouldn't be caged in a box. My goal is to support musicians and artists because they are the ones who make life worthwhile, right? Besides writing for WPGM I work as a model and actress. Oh and I'm always down for live music and art exhibitions so feel free to shoot me a message on facebook if you want me to check out something.. #Peace.Love.Jazz
