Both new nominations are related to Highly Suspect’s first full-length album, Mister Asylum, which Hamilton produced, recorded, and mixed at his three-room facility, Studio G Brooklyn. The album is up for Best Rock Album, and its single “Lydia” is up for Best Rock Song.

I felt like, ‘This is how it should be,’ this is why I had so much fun mixing live, it just sounded… View this story
