Default Time spent listening to "new" stuff vs. stuff you've already heard

How much time do you spend discovering new music vs. hearing again your tried and true artists?


I don't necessarily mean new as in they just came out, just new to you

because I probably really get into 2-4 "new to me" artists every 6 months, and listen to 12 hours straight of Half Japanese for an entire week or something, it works for me

when I first got into postpunk/krautrock it was a new artist every week

If the initial infatuation with a new album counts as listening to new stuff, then I'm about 70% new stuff, 30% long time loves.

I'm about the same as Frown, I think - if an album still counts as new for a while after the first listen.

Although it comes in waves. Sometimes the ratio swings to 95/5, other times to 0/100, with me listening only to old favourites for a few days.

I love finding new stuff and I listen to new stuff with the plan of adding it to my rotation. But I spend more time listening to older stuff I know I like than new stuff cause I never seem to have time to sit down and listen to new stuff.

Lucem, you're right, it's silly to talk about what I would or wouldn't do IRL. Glad you brought it up. Maybe you should write an instrumental about it. I recommend a piano paired with a clarinet. With ambient sounds of you hanging from your shower curtain you ****ing failure.

We’ve talked about this before but great subject

Whatever the case a serious listener needs a some sort of a system to get the right balance

Mine is wickedly complex

My system is that I listen to what I feel like listening to.

Nothing complex or systematic about it for me at all.
If someone shoves a new flavor of yummy ice cream
in front of me, there's no reason for me not to try it.

yeah but how you know it's gonna be yummy

I'm not the kinda guy that asks for a sample most the time

actually it most reminds me most of standing in front of the beer doors

a good 85% of the time I venture to try a new brew I get home and crack open a disappointment, probably it's drinkable, but I don't know that it was worth the investment
