March: new Drake, new Kendrick (y’all got til April 7th to get your shit together, by the way), new Creeper (that I can only begin to imagine how much I would have loved aged 14). This month I saw The XX being extremely incredible, flew to Berlin to watch Depeche Mode play for one hour in the Funkhaus to launch their fourteenth studio album, saw Cold Cave for the first time, saw Slowdive in a really little venue, and had a very very nice time at the Creeper gig. On top of all that I got the Arctic Monkeys’ When the Sun Goes Down and Ed Sheeran’s Castle on the Hill stuck in my head for 48 hours and about a week respectively, and realised I hadn’t yet included Closer by The Chainsmokers, the greatest song of this decade, in one of my monthly playlists. I also took some time to listen to some great new bands, including Lo Moon (who I caught supporting The Lemon Twigs), The Big Moon (full length out April 7th) and Little Cub (sounds a bit like Death Cab).
