The nominees for the 2013 Mercury Prize have been announcedBarclaycard-Mercury-Prize

The most notable omissions include Daughter, who recently won album of the year at the AIM Awards,  London Grammar, who despite only releasing their debut album this month had been made favourites by some bookies, and the token unknown jazz act that usually finds it’s way into the list.
