Arctic Monkeys and Savages, I love them. 
But I love Laura Marling more: give her the Mercury, judges! 

Time to fly to Mercury again.

Let Pitchfork explain why:
The shortlist of nominees for the Barclaycard Mercury Prize, which honors the best British album of the past year, as chosen by a panel of British music critics and industry folks, has been announced. Last year's winner was Alt-J. Previous winners have included PJ Harvey, the xx, Pulp, Portishead, Arctic Monkeys, Antony and the Johnsons, Franz Ferdinand, and more This year's shortlist is: 
Arctic Monkeys: AM
