Ooh yes, despite all the things she has done, Amy's music is awesome.

That must be so frustrating. Can you get Spotify in Bulgaria?

Re: How Do You Discover New Music?

Hmm... generally from the radio, sometimes on Youtube... movie soundtracks, friends. Those are mainly the avenues where I tend to find new music every now and then.

Not so much lately though . Since a lot of today's music isn't that good...

Re: How Do You Discover New Music?

I started out listening to the music that my parents liked, which included a lot of classic rock. Once I got into 6th grade I picked up saxophone, and pure curiosity helped me discover a ton of new artist's. My friends and I are all musicians to some extent so needless to say we always enjoy listening and finding new music of all different types.

Pandora also helps lol

Re: How Do You Discover New Music?

Well I have found much music in my brothers cd collection but now I usually find new music at lastfm. I also find a lot when i for example read about a band or artist and the text mention something about another band that often has something to do with the band im reading about. Then I check it up and it's often good.

Re: How Do You Discover New Music?

I am constantly on the prowl for new music. I look for bands I don't know yet in many different places: music blogs, magazines (mostly NME), last.fm, forums, friends, the Hype Machine, ... There's loads of way of tracking down new or old previously unknown music.

One Tree Hill
That TV series has some of the best music I've heard on it!

Mostly I just browse on iTunes and on the web

Re: How Do You Discover New Music?

I always seem to have a difficult time finding music but when I do its by random. Usually its by trying out new songs on youtube, and I might see another song title that catches my interest on the side and click on it.

Re: How Do You Discover New Music?

Usually I hear about it from friends.. my best friend, who I'm with 80% of the time, tends to have wonderful taste in music and when I go over to her house she'll put on her Itunes.

I used to get alot of my music from Myspace, also, but then I stopped logging on.

Occasionally, I'll pop on over to Pandora.com, which is probably the most effecient way (in my opinion) to find new artists. I love how you can just type in an artist's name that you enjoy, and they'll give you a bunch of stuff that you may enjoy based on that genre of music.

Then there are times where I'll watch the music stations late at night, when they actually play music. I'll also check the Music Choice channels, and they often give me things to put on my iPOD.

But I think the most popular way I discover new music is just by going to local shows. I end up seeing a bunch of bands who I previously had never heard of, or never bothered to listening to, and based on their live performance I decide whether or not to check them out. It also helps to do this, because you discover which bands you should go and see again, and which bands just are not very good live. That's how I found out about A Day To Remember and The Sleeping, among many others.

Re: How Do You Discover New Music?

Friends & music blogs mainly.. And then there're times when i'm just sniffing around, reading music books and checking out whatever is mentioned there.

Anyone actually listening to the radio??
I'm not. :P

Not mainstream network radio, no, but I occasionally listen to streamed radio shows dedicated to niche genres I quite like (e.g. folk, bhangra) on the internet.

Re: How Do You Discover New Music?

-hear about them from friends
-hear one of their songs on the radio, in a tv show, or in a movie and look them up
-recently I've been going to wikipedia and just pulling up lists of bands, scrolling through and trying stuff out. That's how I found We Are Scientists and Darkest of the Hillside Thickets.

Re: How Do You Discover New Music?

Usually I listen to music on YouTube and they always have a list of videos that are "Recommended for You." Occasionally I click on them and I'm pleasantly surprised... sometimes. Also, I watch a lot of fan videos for Harry Potter and Disney Channel shows on YouTube, and those people use music and if I like it, I search it on YouTube to see if I like it enough to buy it. YouTube is such a good source! =P

Re: How Do You Discover New Music?

I get into alot of new artists through my dance studio, actually. My lyrical/jazz teacher has a very good taste in music, in my opinion, so whenever we perform to different artists and I happen to like the song, I go on websites like Grooveshark and look them up to see if I like anymore of their songs. That's how I got into Muse and A Fine Frenzy many years ago!

My friends recommended me differents artists too, and my mom tells me about a bunch of the oldies artists I listen to. She's the one who told me about Nirvana!
