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.


My friend Jae Sinnett's jazz programming on WHRV-FM 89.5 can be streamed and he plays incredible amounts of new music every week. Sinnett In Session is live Monday through Thursday evenings from 9pm-1am, Saturday mornings from 1-5 and Sunday afternoons from 1pm-5pm.

"Discover Weekly" still has not popped up on my Spotify app. There are lots of other categories for looking for new music but I can't find that particular one.

I refer to and check out their New Release section, primarily their “Editor’s Choice” and “Featured New Releases” picks. I have relied on for years to discover new music. The site is free but I highly recommend subscribing to eliminate the annoying ads and supporting the site. Anything of interest is then added to my Amazon Music library.
