Album Packages For The Black Keys And The White Stripes Win Grammy Awards

Past Sunday February 13, The Recording Academy presented the 53rd Grammy Awards, honouring “artistic achievement, technical proficiency and overall excellence in the recording industry, without regard to album sales or chart position”. In light of the countless incomprehensible attributions in its rich history we could debate the relevance of the Grammies for hours at end. Instead let’s just take a look at the nominees and winners of categories that are of interest for our My Type of Music-loving readers.

In the list of nominees and winners, the ones that interest us most on The FontFeed are of course Field 22 – Package with the categories 87 and 88, for Best Recording Package and Best Boxed Or Special Limited Edition Package, and Field 29 – Music Video with the categories 108 and 109, for Best Short Form Music Video and Best Long Form Music Video.
