Listeners to 6music and readers of the Guardian will be busy debating who should be on the Mercury Awards shortlist. The awards which reflect the posher end of indie as well as the occasional interesting interloper but nothing to rock or too noisy are great at covering a corner of the left field indie world.

This year is looking a lot more interesting than usual, hopefully with the acts tipped to be on the shortlist this year include poet and rapper Kate Tempest, alt-R&B singer FKA Twigs, Blur’s Damon Albarn and electro-funk duo Jungle.
