I'm so glad Little Dragon is finally getting some recognition. They were nominated for best electronic album. They've been making great downtempo / trip hop / R&B for years.

Jhene Aiko's song The Worst and her EP Sail Out got several nominations. I read an article in the Washington Post that said she was filling a void in R&B music.

WTF Anthrax are nominated for a cover of song from 1980

The album of the year nominees are particularly bad this year. Ed Sheeran, Beyonce, and Sam Smith. That's a big wtf from me.

I remember when Garbage's Version 2.0 was a album of the year nominee.

I'm not totally opposed to the Grammys. But I know there's going to be a lot of garbage that you'll have to sift through to find the diamonds.

R&B is the most unrelatable genre to me

It's Post-Blues... it's more rhythm derived.

It's Blues music that you can dance to, delivered with a swagger and a smile

Mals have you heard PartyNextDoor's new EP PNDColours? It came out like a week ago. It's pretty good. Reminds me more of Drake than the Weeknd.
