This could be ‘new to you’ or new music artists. Right now, I’ve been relying on a local FM radio station.
For looking at older classic artists / prog I like the discussions by the music buffs at https://www.youtube.com/c/seaoftranquilityprog mostly for album rankings and then maybe check the best ranked to see if it might be to my taste.
Oh neat! Thank you for pointing this out…I’m gonna run with this.
Thanks so much…looking forward to implementing this!
Once I had access to Pandora music. Those were good times. But then they discovered I was a filthy foreigner.
Now it’s more finding lists of recommended artists for genres I’m interested in, narrow down different styles and then just listen to the different recommendations.
Thanks for the reply. What am I looking at with this image? Is this something that anyone could have access to?
It’s just a graphic list of recommended albums within different genres. Starting points. They should be available from the same places you usually get music.
There are often good hour long mixes of genres I like on Youtube that have the names of the individual songs in the description.
Mostly rateyourmusic, my preferred review site. Between the user-made lists, looking at the favorites of people whose taste I respect, and the charts putting together average user ratings with an absurd amount of sorting options, it covers most of my needs.
My strategy has been to just go through the list of album reviews on pitchfork and try 2-3 songs from each. Write down the ones I think could grown on me.
Still looking for a review site with no numbered ratings.
Direct recommendation from people (offline/online) is also possible but usually I don’t click well with theirs.
Spotify used to be really good for me for a few years, but I think they’ve ran out of stuff to recommend me nowadays. I often get weekly recommendations that I’d marked as “don’t recommend me this” a few weeks earlier.
Sometimes when I’m in search of something from a specific genre, I head over to Bandcamp and look at a randomized list of Artists for that specific genre. Other times I’ll listen to something on Youtube and then take a look at the recommended Music related to what I’m already listening to.
Creating a Post on Lemmy asking for recommended Music could also be an option of course!
YouTube videos mostly. No joke, I’ll hear a background or intro/outro song I like and look it up.
Also, when out in public listening to the radio in shops and restaurants and stuff.
Also also, video game OST’s. Pokemon Mystery Dungeon has some banger music, as do many other games.
