The music gods are smiling
First, a decent band wins Album of the Year at the Grammys. Sure, winning a Grammy is a bit like being crowned Tallest Midget in the World or Highest Mountain in Kansas, but still, anytime Lady Perry or Katie Antebellum loses to a band on Merge Records, an angel gets its wings. Or something like that.
The BIG NEWS, however, is that there is new Radiohead in your (or at least mine, not sure what your purchasing habits are) immediate future. I think it goes without saying that there’s a happy JLo this morning what with the chance for some hipster dufus gloating and the imminent arrival of the next best album from the best band on the planet, delivered in such a manner that bypasses the decaying corpse that is the record industry. That makes it a great day for all of us.
