Mercury Music Prize Nomination For GoGo Penguin!

Phoenix Music International would like to say a big CONGRATS to our acoustic electronica maverick trio GoGo Penguin for receiving a Mercury Music Prize album of the year nomination.  

v2.0  is the bands second album on independent label Gondwana Records, and it’s the one which has grabbed the ears of BBC6 Music's Jamie Cullum who said of the band "a really brilliantly modern piano trio that takes in the whole history of music. I think they're really special", and Gilles Peterson  - “I think they’re special…and the response has been amazing”. So to be on the Mercury shortlist 2014 is maybe not a total surprise. Saying that, early odds have they guys as 18-1 outsiders to scoop the actual prize at the awards night at the Roundhouse on October 29th. It’s worth a punt..
