There was a time I use to find new bands on SNL, video channels, Conan etc but not much lately. I use to just by CDs with interesting album covers in the cut-out or dollar bin. There was a place where I could hear the CD before I bought it but that's gone. I don't buy them like I once did, and I haven't gone CD shopping in a store in ages

Now I use Wikipedia sometimes, rarely use blogs. I found Discog can be useful. I like to find things out on my own. So now basically I the bands I find are mainly off of Youtube from the related videos to a band/song I like. I hear new stuff in plugdj but I like to go through a bunch of songs on my own to decide whether or the band is worth getting into or not.

Duriing the last year I have systematically searched for good covers of classic pop songs on iTunes. I use the browse function and go to the "dance" section

I have found entertaining disco and dance versions of classical pop songs which I am already familiar with. I have purchased some 200 or 300 cover songs by teams of musicians working for the record companies. Not very "artistic" - but this system of mine works!

This method is another good one. When I was a kid I used to search Digital Dream Door for good alternative/psychedelic/hip-hop/etc. and that was how I got a lot of my music for a while, back when I was just getting a start at being a music fanatic. Really good site for someone who just wants to get into some different styles, most of their lists are pretty decent.
