Brooklyn bands pile up Rober Awards nominations

Brooklyn confirmed itself once again as the centre of the most ground breaking music while some of its more notorious residents took the majority of this year’s Rober Awards nominations.

It’s no surprise to find Animal Collective featuring in multiple fields. The Brooklyn-based collective has earned 7 nominations for their landmark album “Merriweather Post Pavilion”. More surprising is the fact fellow Brooklynites Grizzly Bear have matched them in number of categories, igniting the battle betweem the two most acclaimed bands of the NY borough.

Following them closely, with five nominations, their neighbours Dirty Projectors on a tie-up with French favorites Phoenix. The Knife’s Karin Dreijer’s side project, Fever Ray; Wu-Tang member Raekwon and style icons Yeah Yeah Yeahs have got four apiece.
