After topping end of year charts in Mojo, Uncut, Clash and the Sunday Times as well as the HMV poll of polls, we are incredibly excited to announce that Animal Collective have been nominated for not one, but two 2010 BRIT Awards!

The US three-piece originating from Baltimore has been nominated for Best International Breakthrough Act; and their universally acclaimed album, Merriweather Post Pavilion, is up for Best International Album.

Let’s hear it for Animal Collective and let’s hear it for independent, progressive, forward-thinking, unique and beautiful music that doesn’t pander to the corporate systems!

‘one of the landmark American albums of the century so far’ – Uncut 5*- number 1 album of the year

‘eight years and eight albums into their career, the Baltimore collective deliver their masterpiece’ – Mojo – number 1 album of the year

‘at once euphoric and utterly devastating’ – Sunday Times Culture– CD of the Week - 5* + number 1 album of the year

the most creative, forward-facing, dynamic, [..] amazing force on the musical planet’ – NME, Number 1 in Future 50 List
