I'll fire up Pandora or Spotify every now and then to see what's new on the different Pandora radio stations, or just listen to the Daily Mixes Spotify puts together. I'm also in a Facebook group that discusses music, so every now and then I'll start a recommendation thread.

I mostly use the YouTube Music app nowadays, but even then I pretty much only use it to listen to old albums by my favorite artists/bands.

But every so often, something new will pop up in my suggested videos, and then it's like, "Why have I not been listening to this band my whole life?" It's rare, but when it does happen it's special.

I discovered a new way to find new music: Instagram

Follow some bands that you like, comment on their posts, also post some music-related stuff... and soon bands and musicians will start following you. Check out their stuff and follow back if you like them! I can hardly keep up with the new music pouring in this way.

^ ngl and no offense because if it helps you find new music then all the better but i hate when that stuff happens. i mean some musicians are bound to be good but i guess i'd rather find stuff in a more mirthful and meandering sort of way, and not in a manner in which other artists try to superfluously solicit you.

v the university radio station in my town is always playing strange (and mostly good) stuff so i'll check out their playlist for stuff i really dig.

Uhm...this might sound weird or maybe a tad bit alien considering this generation rarely use this old device called radio, but I sometimes I find good "gems" while listening to local radio stations, just ignore the inane, annoying talk in-between music playing and you're bound to find a good tune or two that sticks out.

Oh, and Spotify as well as YouTube helps me find some good tunes to listen to as well.

I'll look up Spotify playlists based on stuff I'm kind of into - ex. I'll search "ghost in the shell" or "magical girl" or "90s emo" and put it on shuffle. It's how I discovered Perturbator and Alkaline Trio ^_^

Type in a character name, then go to the last page of the google search.

By browsing through YouTube and clicking on random music.

Eventually you’ll find gems.

By... coincidence? Yes, but mostly from a radio.
