Re: Grammy Nod
Congratulations to them!

They've never been nominated for a Grammy before. But then, the Grammys have only had categories for Electronic music for the past 10 years.

I think the closest equivalents that they've had are Mercury Prize noms for STITI and BF, Brit Awards noms in 1997, and winning a Q Award for the Olympics.

Good question! The Grammys have often rewarded name recognition and hype over quality. Seem to recall a few of the crappier Chem Bros albums getting nods. I will say that the Tycho album is very good, indeed, but not even the best in their catalog. Wouldn't be sore if UW lost to Tycho.

BBWFASF was a strong effort, a return to good form after Barking, and a comeback of sorts since it was 5+ years between proper UW LP's (never mind all their intervening projects!). It's a nice honor for them and I think they have a better than average chance of winning.

About 1 in 5, I reckon.

I saw Louie Vega and immediately thought of Lou Bega. Horrifying thoughts.

Nice to see them getting the recognition, anyway!

Re: Grammy Nomination for Barbara Barbara
well to be fair the JMJ album is pretty good, as is Electronica 2 (its follow up - featuring a lot of Electronic music artist collaborations), and the Louis Vega album is great - he's been a round a while too, with Masters at Work, but this is the Grammy's so who knows

i'd like UW to win, just because they deserve it...

Re: Grammy Nomination for Barbara Barbara
I feel like the grammys are using the category to play catchup with everyone they ignored for the last 25 years. Aphex's Syro was good, but far from his best, for example. Looking at the nominees, Tycho is the only one that ISNT a legacy act, and hes got 5 albums out.... We will see what happens, but itd be grand to see R and K accept the award.
