A lot of fun., ocean, Mum­ford & sons for Grammy nominations

Austin American-Statesman - - AUSTIN360 DAILY - Fun.’s Nate Reuss Frank Ocean

Fun. helped break up the sound of dance and elec­tronic mu­sic on Top 40 ra­dio with its edgy pop-rock grooves. Frank Ocean made a bold state­ment in R&B — with an an­nounce­ment about his sex­u­al­ity and with his crit­i­cally revered, multi­genre al­bum, “chan­nel OR­ANGE.” And Mum­ford & Sons con­tin­ued to bring its folk-rock swag and style to the Bill­board charts with its sopho­more al­bum.

Ocean’s song “Thinkin Bout You” will com­pete for record of the year with Black Keys’ “Lonely Boy” and four No. 1 hits: Tay­lor Swift’s “We Are Never Ever Get­ting Back To­gether,” “Some­body I Used to Know” by Go­tye and Kim­bra, Kelly Clark­son’s “Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)” and “We Are Young” by fun.

The 55th an­nual Grammy Awards take place Feb. 10 in Los An­ge­les.
