MGMT have claimed a rare double, topping both NME's Albums and Tracks Of 2008 lists.

The Brooklyn-based duo are at Number One with their debut LP 'Oracular Spectacular', while the song 'Kids' tops the tracks countdown.

The list was voted for by NME's writers and staff and also features the likes of Vampire Weekend, TV On The Radio, Santogold, Kings Of Leon and Foals in the albums top 10.

Meanwhile, MGMT dominate the tracks list, with three songs in the top 10, while the likes of MIA, Mystery Jets and Glasvegas also score highly.
