The good news about the 54th Grammys is that it could have been worse. Without reason, I continue to hope that this venerable institution will do right by the music. Instead, the collective continues to do right by the marketers. It's who you know, not what you know. One day I'll learn that lesson.
Select Results of Some Americana-ish Interest in the 2011 Grammy Season, awarded in February 2012
Best New Artist: Bon Iver I've at least heard.
Rock Performance, etc: I don't mind the Foo Fighters (not an Americana-ish comment, just a complimentary comment in the could-have-been-worse vein)
Most of the "Country" categories: Nashvegas marketers win again (insert disparaging remarks about Taylor Swift here, tho I will say this, she's the best pop star out of Nashville since Faith Hill)
Best Country Duo/Group Performance: Barton Hollow Many of my go-to Americana tweeters like The Civil Wars. I've avoided them simply because it's a stupid name for a band. …

1 The Velvet Underground - The Velvet Underground & Nico
One would be hard pressed to name a rock album whose influence has been as broad and pervasive as The Velvet Underground and Nico. While it reportedly took over a decade for the album's sales to crack six figures, glam, punk, new wave, goth, noise, and nearly every other left-of-center rock movement owes an audible debt to this set. While The Velvet Underground had as distinctive a sound as any band, what's most surprising about this album is its diversity. Here, the Velvets dipped their toes into dreamy pop ("Sunday Morning"), tough garage rock ("Waiting For The Man"), stripped-down R&B ("There She Goes Again"), and understated love songs ("I'll Be Your Mirror") when they weren't busy creating sounds without pop precedent. …

1 Radiohead - OK Computer
Using the textured soundscapes of The Bends as a launching pad, Radiohead delivered another startlingly accomplished set of modern guitar rock with OK Computer. The anthemic guitar heroics present on Pablo Honey and even The Bends are nowhere to be heard here. Radiohead have stripped away many of the obvious elements of guitar rock, creating music that is subtle and textured yet still has the feeling of rock & roll. Even at its most adventurous -- such as the complex, multi-segmented "Paranoid Android" -- the band is tight, melodic, and muscular, and Thom Yorke's voice effortlessly shifts from a sweet falsetto to vicious snarls. It's a thoroughly astonishing demonstration of musical virtuosity and becomes even more impressive with repeated listens, which reveal subtleties like electronica rhythms, eerie keyboards, odd time signatures, and complex syncopations. …
Nov 28 2010, 19h43 por samueljeronimoNão constitui novidade para ninguém: há muito que a indústria discográfica possui morte anunciada e, face às cada vez mais magras receitas, é normal que as grandes companhias discográficas se juntem às pequenas na aposta em projectos mais baratos. Este tendência, castradora, de início, no que respeita à edição, cria uma bola de neve: aquele punhado de álbuns escolhidos todos os anos pelos órgãos do costume, massificam a tendência e, com isso, despoletam o aparecimento de novos projectos com determinadas características, ao passo que empurram para o canto outros que as não reúnem.
Junte-se a isto a predominância de alguns produtores e a velocidade com que tudo isto circula pelo mundo inteiro através de várias ferramentas, que na Internet são disponibilizadas gratuitamente, e chegamos à situação actual, em que considero fazer mais sentido uma simples ordenação qualitativa daquilo que ouvi (dividida em grupos, pois se alguns discos são ela por ela, outros há que muito distam entre si), ao invés de uma lista dos melhores álbuns do ano.
