They're up against some real heavy hitters (The National, The xx, The Flaming Lips, Jack Savoretti, Rick Astley (???)), and some incredibly impressive live acts (Stormzy, Dinosaur Jr., Mogwai, Tinariwen).

But if you've seen what Skinny Lister or Counterfeit.  can do live, you know they deserve the top slot.
