Thurs­day 14 Best Al­bum Of The Year: The Mer­cury Prize Live 9pm, BBC Four

Sunday Herald Life - - TV & RADIO -

IT’S pres­ti­gious mu­sic gong time again, and the tire­less Lau­ren Lav­erne is on hand at the Ham­mer­smith Apollo in Lon­don to present live cov­er­age of the cer­e­mony. Ex­cit­edly dust­ing off space on their man­tel­piece for what we now of­fi­cially have to call The Hyundai Mer­cury Prize this year are Game Of Thrones’ Ed Sheeran for his al­bum ÷; alt-j for Re­laxer; Blos­soms with their self-ti­tled de­but; Glass An­i­mals for How to Be A Hu­man Be­ing; J Hus for Com­mon Sense; Kate Tem­pest for Let Them Eat Chaos; Loyle Carner for Yes­ter­day’s Gone; Sam­pha for Process; Stor­mzy for Gang Signs & Prayer; The Big Moon for Love in the 4th Di­men­sion; The xx for I See You; and Di­nosaur (who, I’ve just dis­cov­ered when I googled them to check, are def­i­nitely not to be con­fused with Di­nosaur Jr) for To­gether As One. Some of them will be per­form­ing as the cov­er­age un­folds. Stay tuned for Indie Classics At The BBC (10.15pm), with fa­mil­iar footage of Joy Divi­sion, The Cocteau Twins, The Smiths, Depeche Mode and more.
