Speech Debelle – Mercury Music Prize 2009

13 Sep

This week the winner of the 2009 Mercury Music Prize was revealed to be London hip hop artist Speech Debelle. Pretty unerwhelming, I’m sure many would agree. It’s not a bad record by any strech of the imagination, but is it really the best or most forward thinking release of the year? Definatley not. It’s set in the past, not the future and I was very disapointed to see it win. Personaly I would have loved The Horrors to win, and I would have been very happy if Bat For Lashes had gone home with the prize. Oh well it could have been worse – La Roux could have won!
