54th Annual Grammy Award Nominations

 

Nominees have been announced for the 2012 Grammys. Of course, we got the assumed contenders like Rihanna, Kanye, Nicki Minaj, Coldplay, Bon Iver, and yeah, Wiz Khalifa. But personally, we are especially excited about several of our prided projects getting nominated this year! And probably not surprising that miss Adele is definitely taking the cake here. Many congratulations to some great artists and musicians! The 54th Grammys will air on Feb 12th. For a full list of the nominees, click here.

Video: TV on the Radio – “Caffeinated Consciousness”

 

TV on The Radio’s video for “Caffeinated Consciousness” has already made us press play about twelve times. We’re not sure what’s happening, but we think that the song keeps ending before we want it to and thus, we must repeat incessantly. Or perhaps it’s that flying carpet hippie scene that makes us melt. Either way, this song and video are an all around win. As if it couldn’t get any better, the video is part of an hour long movie by TV on the Radio that was released back in April.

With the video also comes the release of remixes for “Caffeinated Consciousness” and “Will Do,” which are available exclusively on iTunes. Check out the video for “Will Do” that we posted a few months back as well!
