    xx Wins Mercury Prize - They beat 11 other finalists

    And the winner is... xx. The London-based indie band won the coveted Mercury Prize for their self-titled debut, which was released in 2009. The band beat out 11 other finalists for the $30,000 prize. The Mercury Prize is a prestigious award that has been handed out every year since 1992. It celebrates the "best album" by a British or Irish artist.

    Congrats to xx on winning the Mercury Prize this year.

    Have you ever heard of xx? Are you apt to check them out now since they won such a precious accolade/award?
