I used to use last.fm radio stations, or read magazines, or be exposed to things through friends or through forums like this one. But you guys don't really talk about music very much now (perhaps the media thread kills discussion) and I don't have many musical friends, and whenever I see any music magazines in the shops it's all the same shit I was listening to 10 years ago.

Depends on what you're interested in. Just going to the pitchfork homepage can get you new indie-ish bands, and I'm sure there are other sites that specialize in different genres. Sometimes I'll see a festival lineup with some bands I like and a bunch I don't know, so I make a note to check them out and sometimes they're good.

 

Are you feeling anything in particular? Maybe we have suggestions.

http://hypem.com hypemachne is good but i like youtube mostly. i go to http://createdigitalmusic.com all the time and they feature weird experimental stuff, like that proper bonkers powell track i shoved on the media thread. i quite liked xfm for a while but radio always ends up doing my fucking head right in. so  i too, ask this question a lot... I've not found a permanent answer other than to be a simpleton and just like whatever trash is force fed you

i do actually like this song

I set sound snares in the backyard and harvest them once a month. The weirdest and most bracing thing I've caught lately is The Tribe Called Red. Native American dubstep. I can't decide if it's really awful, really good, or just plain unnatural and downright scary. Give it a try if you dare:

i like the idea.. i feel like it's just a tad short on creativity somehow though, like a lot of dubstep.

i don't hate it though, not by any means

I will definitely check that out, but right now I've been drinking coffee all day and haven't slept and am a sort of afraid there are ghosts here.

I've been using Spotify for this. There's two ways it can work:

1. Find an artist you like, there's a link on their page for related artists, explore.

2. You get sent a playlist once a week that has music you haven't listened to based on music you do listen to.

It's worked pretty well so far for me

Well, it certainly is scary.

so texted Tilly sent her the native songs her response!

 

 wow dem natives sure eat a lots of beans sound like farting!

 

Typical kid! I had to laugh! have to come home early they got food poisoning! not funny i Know but her message on it all.

 

" my tummily hurtsed and wen bruder was sik I sayid aww bles is' art!' :explode: by da wais gots u some rok m8

 

you need a 24/7 google translator to understand the texts it takes me sometimes a good few cups of tea and hard gaming to figure it out!

 

 

is exactly how she types so joining forum would be hard work...plus a little too little of mind...she would get lost on it all I spend a lot of itme explaining to her things, but it's nice she wants to learn. problem is she speaks spanish with parents loudly and little english yet english country so, is very hard for her but, I think what is great is her and family want to learn english and be decent living here instead of ignore the language they want to learn and likes talking to english speakers. it's pretty cool.

 

 says tell them hi and I c woodys pix hes secsi ind a foice rejohn.

 

--decipher it. sexy in the face region...I think! I want to stick her on keyring and have he r say funny stuff as a call sign as it rings... he's sexy in da face region. make a good song actually! :yawn: :sleep2: :guitar: according to tilly...it's in progress!

 

facepalm!

I used to buy Uncut every month. The CDs that came with it were damn good. Haven't had one in years though. Pitchfork.com for whatever's current, Allmusic.com for some deeper history, AllSongsConsidered for specific critic opinions, some certain subreddits, and Gnod for shits n giggles. I also have kind of a weird source: I talk to my friends about music a lot.

I listen to the radio - mostly 'double j' streamed online - which has the added benefit of hearing some voices from home while I'm living in NZ. Also friends sometimes send me stuff. I'm overall happy listening to old stuff and finding 1-2 new artists that I really like a year and I generally find these at festivals or live music venues.
HAVE YOU DONE YOUR HOMEWORK?
