How else do you discover new music (outside of Spotify)?

Hi Folks,

 

I know Spotify can be great to discover new music. I'm curious to know how else do you discover new music?  What kind of new music do you look for? Where do you go looking for and why do you go there?

Well, i go to the second hand shop and browse the stock, there's always a hiddem gem somewhere :)

 

But seriously, why do you want to look elsewhere for new music? There is so much on Spotify, enough to listen to for a lifetime!

I go to concerts! Even if I barely know the artist, I'd go especially if they are in a small venue, usually tickets for those around ~20 bucks. I end up loving at least one of the opening acts and end up being a bigger fan of the opening act than the headliner!

I used to use last.fm but that site has gone down hill so much I rarely log in, and I used Deezer a bit when I had a trial and got introduced to some cool music based on my past music. I've tried Spotify Discovery a few times but it always recommends 'nerdy' music. I'm hoping my recommendations improve based on the fact I've been listening to a lot of 80's music.

I like to find new music on Pandora and then add it to a Spotify playlist :)

@feinbergmusic Pandora isn't available in Europe. But it seems like a great music station. Swarm.fm is also a nice tool to find new music, or music related to your taste!

I usually read a lot of album reviews and sometimes singer/songwriters add me on twitter! Otherwise I absolutely love to search new artists on bandcamp or soundcloud.

I'm only just now getting into last.fm. Kind of an interesting way to explore and follow a rabbit trail through various artists (starting from an artist you like, of course).

 

Apple Music and Pandora still can't compete with Spotify in any realistic way.

Thanks for supporting my music!

I often use the radio. Tune in on the genres I like and find different stations. It's really great, and I find a lot of new stuff!
