    So beyond excited that Hey Rosetta! is nominated. Although, they should be nominated for album of the year, Seeds is amazing.

    What a suck ass list? You only get nominated for the main awards if you're Canadian? The Grammys doesn't exclude anyone based on nationality, not to mention seventy-five percent of the nominees are shit.
