A day after being nominated for three Grammy Awards, including best new artist, Montreal producer Kaytranada isn’t feeling the love from his hometown — present company seemingly excepted.

“I don’t know why I always expect support from Montreal media,” the 2016 Polaris Music Prize winner tweeted Tuesday afternoon.

“I made 75 per cent of Bubba here and you put me under the rug because my project is … in English … or simply not your classic rock songs.”

It’s not entirely clear what he’s referring to, insofar as his nomination was the subject of headlines in Le Journal de Montréal, Métro, Le Devoir and Radio-Canada.

Is he just really into La Presse?

As for the English media, we’ll simply note that excitement about Kaytranada was so high that the Gazette forgot to mention that Montreal icon Leonard Cohen received a posthumous nomination. (We regret the omission.)

“Lol actually never mind,” Kaytranada concluded on Twitter.

Honestly, same.
