Question Of The Week: What Are Your Music Resolutions For 2014?
Lose weight, be more productive, smile more; new year's resolutions are a bit of a tired concept at this point, but what about applying that idea—a decision to change habits for the better with the coming of a new year—to your approach to music? Over at All Songs Considered, NPR's Robin Hilton examines the potential of the new years resolution to change a person's musical horizons. Hilton resolves to branch out from his "usual indie/rock/folk wheelhouse", and I'm inclined to attempt something similar when it comes to my pigeon-holing penchant for electronica and hip-hop. Be sure to check out the comments section, too; reader insights range from "less shuffle!" to "listen to more Slayer."
