High honors for James Blake. The famed producer has won the prestigious Barclaycard Mercury Prize, which is awarded each year to the best album from the UK and Ireland. Blake’s sophomore full-length project, Overgrown, beat offerings by Arctic Monkeys, David Bowie, Foals, Disclosure, Jake Bugg, Jon Hopkins, Laura Marling, Laura Mvula, Rudimental, Savages, and Villagers. Judges called his record “inventive, poetic and poignant,” adding “James Blake makes music like no-one else.” Blake’s self-titled debut album was nominated in 2011 but lost to PJ Harvey’s Let England Shake while last year, indie collective Alt-J earned the award with their excellent debut album An Awesome Wave.
