Channel Orange was one of my favourite albums of the 2010's. If you don't like that, I wouldn't bother with anything else.

I'll give it a listen later or tomorrow. I don't often go off of recommendations but in my eyes you are the Music Forum enforcer so I'm giving you a gold pass.

I have never once listened to a Frank Ocean song but he's one of those artists that I know are class. Anything you'd recommend? 

'Nostalgia, Ultra' which is still available to stream on SoundCloud but was never actually physically released (or made available on any other streaming platform) is the answer here. Never bettered, even by the VERY, VERY good 'Channel Orange'. One of my favourite albums of all time.

This is a blast from the proverbial.  I mind driving somewhere one cold, November or December night in 2003 and Radio 1 were live from the ceremony.  Dizzee Rascal won for Boy In Da Corner but I remember wanting Lemon Jelly to win purely down to their song 'Nice Weather For Ducks'.

Dizzee Rascal is one of the very rare occasions where the best album won (see also Primal Scream, Portishead & Antony & The Johnsons.)  Can you believe that The Darkness and Athlete were also nominated in 2003. Grim.

Well, tonight's the night. BBC4 9 o'clock. Sault are the bookie's favourite at 13/8. I think it would  be nailed on were it not for the fact that Michael Kiwanuka won last year. Arlo Parks and Laura Mvula are close behind in the betting with both at 4/1 but I think Black Country might be worth a cheeky fiver at 11/2. That, or Floating Points at 9/1.

Lemonjelly was not a bad album

Arlo Parks won. Unbelievably beige Radio 2 drivetime bollocks. Lovely hair though. Great performances from Nubia Garcia, BCNR and some nice Pharoah Sanders footage. Quite enjoyed  Berwyn's performance. Would have been nice to see Sault unmasked. Wolf Alice were awful. Annie Mac, why.

I’d never heard this, and it’s just come on KUTX, my Austin based music station of choice.  It sounds like Lily Allen singing Jack Johnson songs. I genuinely hate it.
