ROCK RIFFING: Beck was alternative—practically the definition of alternative, in fact—but now he’s not; now he’s rock. We know that because the Grammy brain trust has determined it to be so, meaning that if Beck’s gorgeously melancholy Morning Phase is nominated in a genre category, it’ll be Best Rock Album. Conversely, Jack White was deemed to be rock when he released his first album, Blunderbuss, in 2012, but he’s alternative according to the latest ruling, so his Lazaretto has to be considered a shoo-in for a Best Alternative Music Album nom. You’ll find all the genre distinctions you can swallow in Paul Grein’s handicapping of the favorites in the two races, the perfect accompaniment to your morning latte. (11/14a)
