Your method for discovering great music.

I'm in a slump. It has been a while since I've discovered new music that I really like. And when I say "new" I mean new to me. Maybe even rediscovered would count as new.

I do not have a method. I usually stumble into new music that I like. I also don't have loads of hours to sort through tons of stuff I don't like. Plus I find that random sort of pursuit to be frustrating and unrewarding most of the time.

Amazon Music had half decent 'recommended for you' lists but I don't recall if that ever paid off. I use Qobuz now which sucks in that particular department.

I've found a few bands that I like from recommendations here at Audiogon but I have not been here much lately.

So I'm curious as to how some of you approach that search for great music that is either actually new, new to you or rediscovered.


@reubent Enjoying listening to Radio Paradise already.

@jim5559 I listen to live music whenever I can.

Including rock.

And I have impeccable taste. 😎

I am amazed how quickly I find great recordings while using Roon.

It is actually highly addictive so if you have an addictive personality

do not try it! In an hour of listening I will have 3 new artists best music.

Analog that !!!

Silly enjoy all music digital or analog.

I listen to Qobuz and find music new and old, then buy the album or CD no downloads for me please. Like having the silver or black discs. That way when my internet is down I am not out.

Digitize that!!!!!!!

Reading jazz encyclopedia, finding interesting names and albums, than trying to listen those albums on ytube, than l if I like them, looking for interesting sidemen playing on those albums and than looking for their albums too and than their get the drift. Prefer cold winter nights for doing that. Sometimes if I find some good music on ytube, continue to explore the same chanel, if its made by some jazz enthuziast...and obviously, no pc audio of any kind...

Amazon search,…..complete box search, or those great 5 cd sets for 10-13$

original album classics.


 If price is right, I will buy,


  I’m a diehard metalhead, but some of these odd band sets are too good to pass. 

 If it looks good buy it.

expanded the library quite a bunch past few years. 

  Too many to list
