You're welcome, they are all great. I think Royal Blood are gonna have a big year next year. Haven't stopped playing "Out Of The Black" the past couple of weeks. Chloe Howl makes me swoon.

Liking Royal Blood, although this list seems disappointing compared to previous years.

I'm not sure if disappointing is how I feel exactly; it's more smaller time/unknowns than I've seen in previous years. FKA Twigs is fantastic though imo and Chance/Sam Smith are having a banner year, so I'm thinking they're the most likely to win. Definitely checking the rest of these out though.

Nick Mulvey is awesome. Saw him open up for Laura Marling a couple months back. He seems like a really intelligent fellow too and his guitar rhythms are very interesting and very diverse.

That being said, i don't think this list ever has enough loud guitar music. People at Radio 1 keep complaining it's dead. of course it is if you're not playing it.

I agree, he was so good. Almost the highlight of the evening for me. Met him after too, such a nice chap. Cover him quite a bit/ in touch with his "people" and I'm always in love with what he releases. Can't wait for his debut.

I usually know most of the acts on the longlist, but on this one I've only ever heard of Chance, and I don't even listen to his music. Guess I have some new music to discover!

I'll root for Sampha always and desperately want some new SBTRKT in my life, but that Royal Blood track above is hot.

Fantastic list of artists; BANKS, MNEK, Sampha, and Sam Smith are all favs of mine. BANKS, MNEK, and Sam Smith all have albums coming out next year; 2014 will be a great year for music.
