Itโ€™s that time again, for our annual alternative to the Mercury Music Prize, to highlight some really special records that we love, and to have a public vote to see which one you love the most.

As per previous years, weโ€™ve used the same eligibility (albums by UK & Ireland acts released in the July-July time period) and havenโ€™t included anyone whoโ€™s up for the Mercury Prize.

One vote each. Hopefully youโ€™ll find a record youโ€™ve not heard before that you go on to adore (thatโ€™s the real point of this)

  • Actress โ€“ ADZ
  • Blanck Mass โ€“ World Eater
  • Clark โ€“ Deathpeak
  • Forest Swords โ€“ Compassion
  • Honeyblood โ€“ Babes Never Die
  • IDLES โ€“ Brutalist
  • Jane Weaver โ€“ Modern Cosmology
  • Kelly Lee Owens โ€“ Kelly Lee Owens
  • Laura Marling โ€“ Semper Feminina

Mercury Prize - our alternative
#2

Idles album is called โ€˜Brutalismโ€™

Sorry for being pedantic


#3

provisionally voting Sleaford Mods but still need to check out the Moonlandingz and might try one or two others on the list that i havenโ€™t heard


#4

Balls! I knew Iโ€™d make one mistake (that may even have been autocorrect). Annoyingly I canโ€™t edit a poll once itโ€™s had votesโ€ฆ


#5

Literally not listened to a single one of these


#6

What an absolute shitshow.

:wink:


#7

Enjoy! Weโ€™ll make a Spotify playlist later.


#8

think iโ€™ve heard five. quite like Meursault but i canโ€™t remember what the new one was like.


#9

#10

I think Iโ€™ve only listened to Blanck Mass


#11

Great list - Richard Dawson, Physics House Band and Lord of the Isles also deserve a shoutout.


#12

Desperate Journalist sadly not on the list.


#13

Iโ€™ve spelt Meursault wrong too :frowning:


#14

Death Peak is two words! :joy:


#15

Youโ€™ve also got Rideโ€™s album name wrong


#16

The typos are as much my fault as Seans - typing and research was done while stuck in an airport waiting for a flight and under the influence of a very heavy cold. So, apologies.


#17

I think the idles album is called shit songs, shit lyrics


#18

Laurel Halo for me. Woozy sunny day moozic. Nice.


#19

British Sea Power.


#20

Itโ€™s an amazing album, and my favourite on this list too, but isnโ€™t she American?
