Arcade Fire bringin' it to The Suburbs

Congrats to the Arcade Fire on their win last night at the 53rd Grammy Awards ceremony for Best Album of 2010 with The Suburbs.

This album was included in many writers and snobs' lists alike, including my own Best of 2010 list...clearly the powers that be either 1) agreed, 2) didn't like Eminem, Lady Antebellum, Katy Perry or Lady Gaga, or 3) just wanted to throw absolutely everyone off their trail. That was one of the most surprising, exciting and hopeful wins I have seen in quite some time. Congrats to the Canucks. See other winners and nominees here.

Perhaps this is a sign of things to come, with a few lesser known names winning like the Arcade Fire and Esperanza Spalding, and not as much as the glossed-over, over produced and over-played pop and hip-hop, with more insightful and artistic music being focused on, and not as much of the big-machine, mass produced factorized hits and obvious choices.

Let's hope, at least.

Couple of big time in stores at the Disc Exchange:

Malcolm returns to Knoxville for a 3-show day on Saturday! Catch at least one of them if you know what's good for you... Three chances, two for free: Disc Exchange, WDVX Blue Plate Special and the Laurel Theater

The Band

From Levon Helm:

At Levon's request, Capitol Records opened their vaults to release the original recordings for three records that changed the way America listened to music - "Music From Big Pink," "The Band" and "Stage Fright" by The Band. The result is "Three of a Kind," one very special release featuring all three records, available only at the Midnight Ramble and through levonhelm.com.
