  • The nominations are out for the 62nd Grammy Awards. As ever, there are two Dance categories: Best Dance Recording and Best Dance/Electronic Album. Competing for the former are Bonobo, Skrillex & Boys Noize, Rüfüs Du Sol, Medusa and The Chemical Brothers. The Chemical Brothers are also up for best album with No Geography, joining Flume (for his March mixtape), Tycho, Rüfüs Du Sol and Apparat, who returned in March with LP5, his first solo album since 2013. Several other electronic artists dot the nominations field, including Soulwax, whose remix of "Work It" by Marie Davidson is up for Best Remixed Recording. Radiohead's Thom Yorke has been nominated four times, twice for his Suspiria soundtrack and twice for his recent solo album and film, ANIMA. FKA twigs is nominated for the music video to her single "Cellophane" off her second album, MAGDALENE. The Chemical Brothers was also nominated in this category. Perhaps the most unexpected nomination went to the RA-recommended Light In The Attic compilation Kankyō Ongaku: Japanese Ambient, Environmental & New Age Music 1980-1990. It got a nod in the Best Historical Album category alongside a Woodstock compilation and Pete Seeger collection.
    The 62nd Grammy Awards will take place on January 26th in Los Angeles. Check the full list of nominees.
