Here are my musical related resolutions:
* Continue to make an effort to go to gigs. I live in London so I have no excuse (apart from lack of funds, but that's what credit cards are for). Last year I made it to 13 gigs, and I have 7 booked already in the upcoming months so I expect to beat my record this year. If you're interested, here's who I'm seeing in 2014 so far (in chronological order): Childish Gambino, Poliça, Gipsy Kings, Broken Bells, Metronomy, Rodrigo y Gabriela and Arcade Fire.
* Listen to albums all the way through. I tend to fixate on a particular song and never bother listening to the rest of the tracks on the album, most likely missing out on real gems. A perfect example is
11th Dimension. I've loved it for years but never checked out Phrazes For The Young in full. More fool me; it's great! Also, I kind of fancy Julian Casablancas, but that's neither here nor there. Don't worry James Mercer, you're still my favourite.
