PostSubject: What methods do you use to discover new music?   Wed Feb 13, 2008 10:07 pm

Allright, we're all enthusiasts here, right? I was just wondering what
process, steps, methods, you use when looking for new music.

Personally, I'm a frequent flyer over at Metal-Archives.com, as well as
Wikipedia.org and Amazon.com. All those sites have helped me discover
oooodles of artists over the years. I guess other than that it would
just be discussions with friends, as well as 'cold' buying over at the
music shops when I get the urge.

Also, I LOVE reading through rock and roll encyclopeidas such as
Rolling Stone's Encyclopedia of Rock and Roll and another encyc. about
the same size whose name escapes me at the moment. Most of the artists
I look for are either (a) influences for artists that I allready
know/love or (b) influenced BY artists that I alreaady know/love. I
like sticking with this model because it allows me to bite off one
small sector of the music world at a time. I hope that one day all of
the above methods will lead me to truly get into and understand all the
various forms of rock, jazz, blues, metal, industrial, ambient, etc.
One sub-sub-sub genre at a time is a daunting task, but it's somethign
that I love.

Anyway, I was just curious about how you guys go about it.

peace, LordTsebaoth

Myspace, Napster, word of mouth, and when an artist mentions their influences. Also the now playing threads get me looking and listening as well. It used to be music channels too but I now longer get the music channels that still play music only MTV and VH1 (which when it does play music, plays gay music)

Cool man, it's very similiar for me as well. I love reading and talking about music!

VH1 can be an entertaining channel however. They have some of the most
retarded things to say about many stylezs of music, but it can be very
fun to watch sometimes. I especially like watching their hip-hop shows.
I don't think I've ever seen television programming that is more racist
than VH1 hip-hop specials.

I'm actually kinda serious, though perhaps not as blatantly as I expressed above. Winky

The new music I check out I am usually "drawn to" in some way, and I am almost never turned on to stuff by recommendation. I can't really explain it, but it's almost never wrong - for my tastes anyway. I dunno

I still find out about bands from magazines mostly. Then word of mouth.

Ahhh, the red herring technique. A clever diversion, but I'm on to you, wiseguy! Shame on you

Word of mouth does help too, when someone tries to turn me on to a band id say about 25% of the time I actually like them enough to get a CD by them, but it also depends on whose word of mouth it is too

Some very true words. I personally really don't like when people assume
you're going to like all their music just because you're both
'metalheads'

( ... whatever that means ... )

Nolifetilmetal, CMR and H.O.M., myspace (but more to check out what's been recommented), and now here, I guess. And Wargod! He's a fount of metal research and has caused me to spend so much money!!! I lovingly hate his guts!

OOOOOOOOH! One method of new muzak discovery that I forgot to mention was the legendary METAL-ARCHIVES!! The authoritative
source for all things accurate and of course M~*~E~*~T~*~A~*~L!!!!

(READ THAT, DYSLEXIA-MAN!)

I also love browzing through Wikipedia. Despite its reputation for faulty information, you can find ANYTHING on that site!

I love to use Metal Archives for metal purposes and le Wikie for all music non-metal that I listen to.

MySpace, Soulseek, NP threads & when bands mention influences....also by genre...when I get into a genre kick, I'll go onto forums & stuff to see what bands are being talked about & use the above methods to check into them...

Never the myspace: it's freezing cold down there!
I roam in some very interesting sites from metal to jazz, there is plenty of them (I always cross the informations); I stick to the ones that offer a good quality of writing; And indeed some encyclopaedias about rock and jazz, mostly. I like to understand how the whole thing stood up, you know, that good old image of the tree, its roots, its branches, and so on...

Mostly from boards though I don't want to hear about new music. I can't afford my current want list.

Now I'm getting into bands that are on the Heaven's Metal compilation CDs. Great bands on the latest one.
