English folk rock band Mumford and Sons' lead singer Marcus Mumford plays the guitar on the main stage during the second day of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, California.
We love award shows, as you can probably guess from our posts on Twitter (follow @HTBrunch). But the Grammys, presented last Sunday, were a little more special. Even though The Hindustan Times editor-in-chief and Download Central (DC) columnist, Sanjoy Narayan, didn’t give an official Grammy prediction list, the winners almost seemed handpicked from his columns!
The Black Keys, which usually feature every couple of weeks, won the Best Rock Album for El Camino.
Mumford & Sons, another favourite, took the biggest honour of the night, Album of the Year, for Babel.
Mumford & Sons won Album of the Year for Babel.
Sanjoy had also written about Frank Ocean, who won the Best Urban Contemporary Album for Channel Orange. Even Esperanza Spalding and Gotye, who found favourable mentions in DC, won big that night. So we thought we’d just indulge in a little self-loving and take time to say, “We Told You So”! #immodestyrules.
