I realized something while walking to lunch earlier. Oftentimes I pick up on band names from reading fan reviews. Someone might say a particular album reminds me of this or that band or album, that it's better in this way or that, or not as good, whatever. Of course when I'm reading these fan reviews it's either to help me decide if that album is something I want to bother getting or not, or sometimes it's after I've already listened to it and like it, I go back to see what people are saying. So it's nice to pick up names of other bands that way.

One of the things I have done in the past is creep on other peoples' Facebook profiles. I'll go to profiles of Facebook friends who appear to have good taste in music, take any bands I've never heard of, and youtube them. If I like what I hear, I get the music.

I've also become somewhat addicted to TasteKid.com, honestly. I get on there, type in a band or a few bands I've been in the mood to listen to, and it usually gives decent recommendations of other bands I might like, which I then proceed to check out on youtube. Again, I download 'em if I like what I hear.

I've also been known to check out bands artists I admire list in their influences or mention in interviews. A lot of the time, they're good for liking music that I turn out to be interested in. There have been a few exceptions (Trey Anastasio singing the praises of Paramore, for example) but mostly it's pretty dead on.

Finally, when I'm really hard up for new music, I go to music blogs (generally with a progressive, avant garde, electronic, and psychedelic emphasis lately) which post full albums, and check out the stuff that sounds interesting.

I had never even heard of Pitchfork before I came here. I've still never gone to their site. But I don't really follow modern music anyway.

For finding new stuff, I usually just read up on my favorite bands' influences or listen to stuff recommended by people who have similar tastes to mine.
