Favorite Music Sites

So I have a lot of people ask me, how I’m always finding new music? There are a lot of different avenues. Word of mouth, live shows, spots in a tv show or movie or even sometimes reading about a band. But in todays world internet is always the easiest way to discover new music. Yes, there are a ton of these sites out there and sometimes their opinions are way off and sometimes biased. Some of my favorite sites usually go along with my own music tastes and what my friends call my “music snob” opinions.

http://pitchfork.com – Pitchfork is one of those sites that I go to first. They have a lot of great underground musicians and a lot of other music related topics.

http://www.stereogum.com – Sterogum to me feels like a site that gathers info from a lot of other sites and artist blogs and Facebook and band sites. But it’s a pretty great one stop site. Sterogum does share a lot of the same posting that pitchfork does. But they have great lists and breakdowns of the year, season, decade etc.

http://www.undertheradarmag.com – Under the Radar is a site that is also a magazine. The magazine is how I originally cam across this site. The site is set up more like an actual magazine with interviews artist and up and coming bands. I really the writing on this site and find it to be informative. But again you have to check out the band to find out for yourself.

https://www.spotify.com/us/ – Spotify is my favorite site to go to listen to new music. The great thing about Spotify is that you can listen to whole albums. Unlike Pandora you aren’t just constantly on a shuffle. But for the most part they are always current with newly released albums, even crazy obscure stuff. They also usually have good suggestions for new music based on what you previously listened to.

Give these sites a look and let me now if there are any you think are better.

About veggiescruff

You may be wondering what the hell VeggieScruff means? Well my last name is Turnipseed that leads to the nickname Veggie, which I’ve had for years. The scruff part didn’t come till years later with I started to develop an admiration for beards and guys with them. I also grew a love for beer and as the years passed I began experimenting and trying new different beers. But the one thing that has always been present in my life was music, ever since I was a kid. Most of my friends even refer to me as a music-snob, I think it’s meant to enduring or at least that how I’m taking it. So basically a bearded guy will always gets my attention. Then if said bearded guy were drinking a microbrew or craft beer then I’d be intrigued. But if said dude with beer was listening to really awesome music… well then you’d be reading this blog, that or be on the best date ever. So feel free to follow along or leave, the title only consists of just some of my main interest but I’m also a Printmaker and Designer so some of those topics will be scattered about and probably a few random rants too. My posts may not be relevant or even safe for work. But I will always try to be honest, entertaining and even hopefully informative from time to time, if I feel like it.
