How often do you discover good music?

Nearly every day I hear new music. But it's only about once a month that I hear something that genuinely stands out for me, which I start playing on heavy rotation.

How often do you discover new artists that you truly enjoy?

Re: How often do you discover good music?

Not often enough! Honestly, I don't find many songs/artists these days that I really, really enjoy. Maybe 5 to 10 times a year? Not often... Interesting question, never really thought about it, I guess!

Once a year. Twice if I'm lucky. I think I went through 2011 without discovering anything I liked.

Re: How often do you discover good music?

About the same as GomesR for me.

But that's the joy of it.....just at the point where I think I have discovered all my favorite artists something will slap me in the face out of nowhere. For example last year I discovered Boards of Canada, now I dunno how the hell I spent 27 years not knowing about them. Also Cinematic Orchestra, The xx, Air,Jon Hopkins and plenty more....I usually find random youtube related videos searches show me the way to hidden gems.

Re: How often do you discover good music?

My mind gets blown on a daily basis. I feel like music as a whole gets better (noticeably) every single day, so there's always shit for me to fall in love with & become inspired by. The only time I don't find good music, is when I'm too busy // sidetracked to look.

Re: How often do you discover good music?

I would say that I discover good music everyday, but on accident most of the time, I could discover a song that was really amazing, but dated back to like 2009 or something.

Re: How often do you discover good music?

I just dig around youtube and find stuff, usually at least a few good artists each week. I wouldn't say I find stuff daily, I'm too lazy for that now lol.

Re: How often do you discover good music?

Most of my music time is spent working on my own stuff. If I find one or two new things per month that I like its been a good month. The morass of bland is sometimes overwhelming though.

Re: How often do you discover good music?

Every 2-3 months I find somthing I really like, sometimes less...

Often I find stuff that sounds cool on first listen but then dissapoints me after a few listens or I find a really cool track only to discover that the rest of the album is pretty boring...

It helps to not just focus on electronic music though... Lots of good Jazz & Classical stuff out there too

Re: How often do you discover good music?

Depends how hard I'm looking or if I'm just listening to the same stuff over and over.

It's not the most original way to find good music, but checking out the Beatport top 100 for your favourite genre is a good way.

Other than that, add people with good taste on Spotify and see what they're listening to

Couple of times a week on average. LastFM, YouTube, and forums are invaluable to me.

I discover new music every day. I'm not paid enough to decide whether it's "good" or "bad" so I simply enjoy it for what it is.

Re: How often do you discover good music?

About once a month I hear something that makes me search out the artist in more depth, a couple of the Youtube users I'm subscribed to regularly upload new stuff artists make available for free before they release the albums so I listen to pretty much everything they upload in one place, which is very handy.

Re: How often do you discover good music?

Regularly browsing ProgArchives or sharing stuff with friends or youtubing at random so ... Pretty often ! I've got a long list of stuff I should listen to.

And that's not even counting the jazz albums I have to check out.

Good music? All the time. Amazing music? Like once or twice a year, as Vlantis said.
