Yep - That wouldn't surprise me at all. I'm hoping that there will be the odd curveball in there.

My love of all things Hurts has been widely documented elsewhere and I'm secretly hoping that that would sneak on.

Other possibilities - The Unthanks, Bellowhead, Admiral Fallow on a floky type vibe....

But really hoping there's at least 1 record that I've never even heard of.

Nine (maybe ten if you're churlish) out of twelve! Which, given also Skying was released too late to be eligible, perhaps demonstrates something.
