Your Questions About How To Discover New Music

Mark asks…

How do you go about finding new music?

When you get that itch for some new songs to freshen up your iPod, where do you discover new music to try out?

New Niche Finder answers:

I let reviewers who are famous just like Christgau make a mind about music and follow them.

Just kidding, i read reviews by guys in the internet, see the ones who actually know music and with similar taste in it, and then i hear what they recommend that i still didn’t know.

I want a app like rdio. But for free i want to be able to discover new music and everything but free .

Just listen around. Listen to different genres. And alot of times, its really specific, like, Hip hop for example. You have East Coast, West Coast, underground, dirty south, etc etch. Just figure out what you like by listening to different things. You’ll know when you like something =)

Steven asks…

What’s wrong with listening to mainstream music?

I listen to mainstream music but it seems like people here think it’s bad. Of course recently, I started discovering music on last.fm.

New Niche Finder answers:

Some people believe their better because they listen to music that isn’t mainstream or indie artists or whatever. They think that people who listen to mainstream music don’t have any musical style or taste and only like and/or follow what’s playing on the radio.

This, my friend, is called being narrowminded.

If you like what’s playing on the radio, listen to it. To each his own.

I listen to both indie music and mainstream. From Eisley to Beyonce, Lights to Paramore, Sleepy Rebels to Coldplay. I believe the gist of music itself is to be universal and it’s more enjoyable when you have a little taste of everything____not just listening to what’s always on the radio, not just listening to indie music. A little bit of everything is nice. And it’s not about the artist’s status…it’s about the artist’s art.
