Musical Wish List for 2014

With 2013 almost in the books, we can sit back and recollect on what a great year it was musically, or we can be greedy and count next year's chickens before they hatch.

We're choosing the latter.

Sure, 2013 had its sweet moments. There were crossover hits that (almost) everyone enjoyed, like everything Daft Punk or Drake, a solid number of fantastic musical acts that performed locally -- from Arcade Fire to Bob Dylan to Janelle Monae -- and not to mention the phenomenon that was twerking. But we expect even more from 2014. And here's exactly what we want the musical gods to give us in the New Year.
