How do you discover new music?

With the music world changing before our eyes, how do you find your new music? (assuming you try and find new music and aren't still listening ONLY to Van Halen in your camaro)

I personally love the Itunes experience and have expanded my music collection because of it. Streaming broadcasts like Yahoo's services are also a good way.

What do you do?

I bought the 1st Verve record (A Storm In Heaven) in 1993 because I liked the cover.

Radio! Mostly NY's 92.3 KRock which plays a lot of new music.

Nice idea for a thread, btw!

It's a combination of things.

I read lots (websites and magazines)
Internet Radio
Suggestions from friends

Mostly, I actively seek new music because I have an insatiable music craving.

Friends, my sister, my dad (plays a bunch of newer bands on his station), sometimes recommendations from here, and sometimes while I'm watching the regular VH1 channel when they're showing videos or when I'm listening to the adult alternative music channel.

I am more or less exactly the same as every word written above.

This might be one reason we seem to like some of the same bands.

i mostly find new stuff by just aimlessly surfing through itunes. that's how i found death cab, the killers, and several other bands. i also have a tendancy to randomly buy those 7 or 8 dollar albums at target if i have some extra money. i found keane that way.

i also find new stuff via my brother a lot. he has a lot more cash to burn than i do and he's often calling me up and telling me about the latest album he picked up. the last album he really turned me on to was jimmy eat world's futures but he is also the one who introduced me to guster.

Seriously though, why is that album so enjoyable? I always "liked" Jimmy Eat World, but I REALLY like that album.


iTunes is definitely a good way to check into things, I'm just starting to use it a little more now for clips and music videos and such.

I go for recommendations from friends and spending way too much time in HMV especially when theres a sale on.. I spend way too much money on random CDs. I like to just buy albums with interesting covers or track names, they usually turn out alright!

i never "liked" jimmy eat world at all, but i love that album. for me, it's a combination of two things:

a) i think it's one of the best produced albums i've heard. each song's arrangement is perfectly complimented by the sounds the engineers captured in the studio.

2) the songs are just really fuckin' catchy.

I get almost ALL my new music suggestions from this board! If it wasn't for B&C, I'd just be listening to U2, Coldplay, and handful of other bands. I've been able to increase my music intake tenfold simply by following up on recommendations that are posted here. I've been able to step out of my musical "box".

So, thank you to everyone who posts musical recommendations!
