Default Where do you get your music/music information?

Most people on this site seem to be pitchfork junkies or get new music from friends/relatives. So other than PF and MB where do you get your new music and music information?


I've used SPIN magazine for a while, but I think that their album reviews are pretty ****ed over all so I dropped my subscription.

I wish there was a good way to search for this type of thread, because I know I've seen the topic more than once already.

I knew this comment was coming. I use advanced search every time that I post a thread and there always seems to be a thread that already exists bout the topic I'm posting about. Makes me look foolish...getting old.

I mostly get it from seeing artists similar and checking them out too. Or friends. Or hearing it and being like "OMG, who is that?! "

Last Fm and MB have been serving me quite well lately.

Before that, it was asking other people for mixtapes and searching music review sites like metacritic and Q.

Well like I said, there isn't really a good way to search for this topic as I can't figure out what word/phrase I would use (other than "where" which is too common a word for the search). So I was cutting you some slack and just putting the message out there in case someone could find said previous thread.

Blogspots and YouTube. If I wanted something along the lines of Arms & Sleepers I would Google "Arms & Sleepers Blogspot", and then there would be a good chance that me and the person who started the blog have similar tastes. If on YouTube I would look up a song by Arms & Sleepers and go through related videos and such. It does me well.

I wouldn't worry about this one. I have a feeling there IS a thread or two like this already but it's a tricky one to search for. I just tried and a few different keywords and I can't find one. If any of the other mods can find them, they will merge the threads together.

Anyway, i tend only use this site and Last.fm 90% of the time. I have a few mates who have good, varied, tastes in music and so sometimes i get into some stuff through them. I use Rate Your Music from time to time, mainly when easing myself into a genre I am not familiar with. If i find a good blog that I have gotten a few good albums from then i bookmark it and might raid it occasionally.

I can't really think of anything else. I used to visit the odd music-related site (ie DiS and a few others) and in the past I have been known to buy music magazines but I don't do any of that anymore.

EDIT: Oh and sometimes i look up a genre on Wikipedia, pull a list of artists and just pick random bands from it. I dont know if anyone else does this?

I don't even use LastFM's rec feature. I just look at what other people with Super Compatibility are listening to, what their top artists are, etc
