Your Questions About How To Discover New Music

George asks…

How do you discover new music?

I’m going to release an electronic rock album soon and I want to know the best way to get the music heard by people. I’m not concerned with making money – the album will be free on our website – I just want to know how *you* discover new music. If you could also please include your age/age range, that would be very helpful. Thank you!

Last.fm, YouTube, and Pandora, for the most part, although I hear about the majority of the indie bands I listen to from word of mouth. I’m 14.

Laura asks…

How do you watch previous inductions to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame?

I was just curious because my parents were never very musically involved, and now I’ve really started discovering music for myself and most of my favorite artists are already inducted so I would really like to see their speeches. Could anyone help me?

Lizzie asks…

What do you think about people putting music on their tumblr pages?

Does it bother you or do you like it?

I personally like it. Sometimes anyway.
I like to discover new music and social networks are a great way to do so.
But if they’re just putting up some One Direction crap, I don’t dig it.
Plus, it’s just annoying when they hide the pause.
Like are you really going to make me listen to your music when I’m on your blog?

It annoys me.

I have other ways of discovering new music. The people who have autoplay on their blog rarely listen to music that I like anyway, and most of the time, the music player doesn’t even display the artist or the song title, so I have to go search for it on my own if I want to find it.
Hiding the pause button is just ridiculous, and guarantees that I will never ever revisit your blog. Ever.
It also doesn’t work very well if you don’t have infinite scrolling and don’t have shuffle on your playlist, as it will cause the same song to restart every time I go to the next page. (But I don’t like infinite scroll either.)

Often I have my volume turned up too high, because I’d just been listening to something with poor sound or because I’d forgotten to lower the volume after plugging my headphones in. The unexpected music will make me jump, curse, and then scramble for the exit button only to never return.

If I wanted to listen to music, I would already be listening to music. By all means, keep a playlist on your page – sometimes I’ll be curious what sort of music you like and I might play it. But don’t force it upon me, because that’s just irritating.

Woah, essay.

David asks…

what’s a Good place to discover new music?

I remember I use to go on this website that let you sync iTunes with the program you download. It would you find music, download non contract artist and it would help you discover new music. If you know this website or one that can help me find new music please tell, thanks.

Robert asks…

What is the program that allows you to listen to free music legally?

I once was looking in Wikipedia for a way to discover new music I would like. I came around to a program which Wikipedia said has free music that is legal because it’s all unpopular acts just desperate to get their music heard. I heard it had millions of songs. I would like to know what that program is so I can download it and listen to new music I haven’t heard of before.
It’s not Spotify.

Pandora is one, and so is jamendo.com.
