Burial released the critically acclaimed 'Untrue' last year on an independent London record label and the album surfaced at the top of many of the album of the year lists - despite almost no-one in the industry knowing his real identity.
Also in the nominations for the second time is the British/Sri-Lankan singer M.I.A for her second album 'Kala', and Wilco for 'Sky Blue Sky'.
