New music wakes up ideas and influences the musician's mind. There are radio stations all over the world, we have youtube, and paid sites, music discovery or lastfm, as well TV channels dedicated to music... But what is the most effective way to discovery new sounds that match your personal criterium? I mean those which your ears, your heart and mind will appreciate most. I listen to music everday and also new music by the means I referenced, but I find not too much garbage, I would say that, but music I simply don't like. How to refine this process and expand possibilities?

1 Answer 1

I'd say that last.fm and following youtube links are good way to discover new music.

Two more possibilities from me:

  • SongPop game (available for android, iOS and as facebook app) - a chance to sort out the bands and songs you know, recall songs you listened in past and forgot, and finally meet new music
  • Coincidence :) few days ago I was tagging (ID3v1 by winamp auto-tagger) all my music from hard disk, and some of the songs were not recognised. For example two pieces which were without doubt Motorbreath (polish hard-rock band) were tagged as Gatsby's American Dream's. When I checked, how Gatsby's American Dream sounds like, it turned out I like it.
