Mercury Prize for Music
Just a word on this year's Mercury Prize for Music. One of the nominees is Benjamin Clementine. And his voice is sublime. His music reminds me of Nina Simone meets Regina Spektor. I haven't felt as enthusiastic about a nominee since P J Harvey won for 'Let England Shake', particularly 'Written on the Forehead'. He's performing in Brighton on 3 December, which is looking like a must for the diary. As a lover of Moloko back in the day, it's also cool to see that Roisin Murphy's album 'hairless toys' is also on the list.
