This is turning out to be a great week for Arcade Fire. The Canadian indie rock band has made it into NME, Mojo, Q Magazine as well as According2g’s top 10 albums of the year list and now they’ve been nominated for Best Album at the Grammys. Congrats to them. Speaking of the Grammys I just finished reading the entire list of nominees and aside from Florence and the Machine (whose debut album was released in 2009) being nominated for the 2011 Best New Artist Grammy and LaRoux (whose album was also released in 2009) being nominated for best dance track in 2011 for a track off her 2009 album, the list of nominees is dull and very uninteresting. Most people watch the Grammys and bitch about how terrible they are. I will not be one of those people. I’ll be happy with spending 3 or 4 seconds the next day scanning the list of winners and saving myself 4 painful hours of torture. I recommend you do the same.
