This year, I’ve only heard four of the nominees (PJ Harvey, Elbow, James Blake, and Anna Calvi). I’m amazed that Wild Beasts and The Horrors aren’t on the short list, although as I would have regarded both as potential winners it makes predicting this year’s winner that bit easier. It’s going to be PJ.
