Devon Sproule has won our alternative Mercury best album poll The Schmercury Award for her record I Love You, Go Easy’.
1,524 of you chose the Virginian songwriter’s album who beat second place Dark Dark Dark – Wild Go by just four votes.
Third place were The Leisure Society for Into The Murky Water, which clocked up 1,205 votes.
When we asked Devon what she’d buy with a hypothetical million pound prize she said: “Million schmillion. I’ll take a hundred! I’ll use it to buy a real coffee pot for this new place, and brunch at Cafe Aroma, across the street, which I hear is really nice. Or maybe a new set of headphones. That’s what I’d really like right now.”
The whip round starts here. I’m pledging a tenner…
