Grammy Awards 2014: Vampire Weekend wins Best Alternative Album


The Grammy Awards are being handed out tonight, which means we will finally learn what was truly the best that music had to offer in 2013. From amazing rap albums to brand new stars on the scene and even some undeniably catchy pop tunes, this year in music was one that we couldn’t help but sing along to.

Alternative Rock and alternative music in general may still not be mainstream, but the Grammys still go out of their way to honor the genre each and every year. This year sees a clash between iconic Alt gods and relatively new kids on the block.

Trent Reznor has revived his career and has also revived his band Nine Inch Nails to the point where they’re up for a Grammy. The perennial favorite though is Vampire Weekend, who likely have a lot to owe to Reznor and Nine Inch Nails.

The Grammy Award for Best Alternative Album was handed to Vampire Weekend for Modern Vampire of the City.

The Worse Things Get, The Harder I Fight, The Harder I Fight, The More I Love You — Neko Case
Trouble Will Find Me — The National
Hesitation Marks — Nine Inch Nails
Lonerism — Tame Impala
Modern Vampires Of The City — Vampire Weekend — WINNER

    Tame Impala is incredible…so underrated, sadly I knew that people would only choose the more well known NAMES but if anyone heard Lonerism, it would have been a life changing moment.

    Modern Vampires of the City is a flawless album from start to finish. Really truly a great addition to their already amazing music. I’m thrilled they won, and it was against some very talented artists too!
