    I use RYM, but instead of only going through genre chart, i look for Various artists compilations.

    So, for example, if i only know about Joy division as post-punk band, i go to their page, search for Various artists compilations. So i can find box sets, with like 4 cds of different artists, and then i can check them out. I also check their va compilations. I also save names of these compilations in a Word document.

    At this moment, i have around 50-100 written down compilations in various music genres. There are probably around 1000 artists on them.

    This is especialy important to me when it comes to brand new artists.

    I used to live in Scotland and my go to was and continues to be The Skinny. I’ve been in Australia for eleven years now and I always read the Skinny’s album reviews because they feature underground Scottish artists that don’t get a mention elsewhere. And living in Sydney we have The Brag, which is out local equivalent. Point being, any part of the world with an established popular music culture has local guides and a lot are great. So probably check them out. I think the Skinny may be cream of the crop as we all know Scotland produces the best music in the world for its size 😉

    i found out about bikini kill through a book, cinderella ate my daughter. wasn't the greatest book but at one point the author was like bikini kill is a great band. i don't know if i want my six year old daughter listening to a song called suck my left one though and twelve year old me was like that sounds dope as hell.

    i also find a lot of music through film and tv. started listening to wastewomxn from high fidelity, got into the crystals from adventures in babysitting, heard about css from moxie, got into ccr from logan lucky, etc etc.

    RateMyMusic is a site I used very often to search for new, cool music. Especially looking at good genre lists for albums.

    I must ask, I don’t if one would consider this a bad habit, but does anyone else skim thru a couple songs on an album on Spotify and see if the album “rings with you” so you could listen to it later?

    Cause the sound of an album really sticks with me and I feel skimming can help someone understand the prominent sound of the album, but the album’s songwriting & structure may be lost out of that process.

    Anybody interested in the grunge scene, Five Against One by Kim Neely is a great one that compiles interviews and experiences from Neely as she travelled alongside Pearl Jam

    Usually If I have an idea of what sound I want to hear. So I make playlist and songs I know that sound similar. Then I listen to the music recommendations. I also like find A.I Machine learned playlist of genre. I tend to go r into rabbits. Which can yield some cool stuff. I found out about Sparklehorse through that. In all disorder a secret order.

    I use radio and records charts and old editions of Billboard to hone in on a certain era.

    Sideman and label exploration usually yields positive results.

    I also listened to Black radio in NYC during the 80's and 90's where there were two competing stations with huge playlists. Classic soul, currents, jazz, fusion, and smooth jazz were some of the many styles played day and night. There was less emphasis on a rotation especially on Sunday and at night. I kept a notebook of artists and songs and it was full.

    Amazon about a decade ago allowed customers to create lists and they would pop up when on certain related artist pages. Both Amazon and Discogs use cookies but the ones at Amazon are not as good as they used to be. On Discogs, you can cross reference all of the titles a current or reissue label has put out. Amazon also has a weekly and a 30/90 list of current titles.

    The Penguin guide to jazz is about the best reference book out there.

    When I started my collection back in the mid 90's, I bought a nice stack of various artists compilations so that I would have variety right away. Then I focused on one current and one classic with one for items that were going out of print. Cut-out and promo bin allowed for cheap buys from an era that I liked but the availability window was quickly closing as styles were changing.
