Mostly I "stumble" into new music. LIke my friends like a certain type of music and I usually don't like most of it except for one song... or, when I was younger, I go to an underground nightclub and like a bunch of songs. Also my exes had a big playlist and I sorta liked it.
Kinda same with my dating and friendship style. I "stumbled" into dates and friends, always. I wasn't actively seeking them out 99% of the time. I just sort of run into them, and we click, and I like what they say and they like what I say and now we're friends or lovers.
I'm not sure if I delivered my Costco driving experience properly starting off with that one. It was like the 7th song. I started with this one to sort of get warmed up into it:youtu.be/x4kJ-BlP714
But by the time I posted that song in my original post, I was totally in the zone. I was sorta singing along to my wife except I kept singing it wrong because I'm neither a good singer nor that good at Spanish. But I tried to make up with heart and effort.

That's pretty cool. I think we've shared music before. I've figured out you were TurboKid (and maybe DrunkAss)
I'm with you there. By the way I dig the profile pic with the (bass) guitar.\m/Kick out the jams!
Thats my first dean vendetta, i only play around with the bass in Logic or fruityloops
to be played for yourself or other people, anywhere.It's an absolutely thrilling time to be a music aficionado.
Here are some ways that I go about finding new music.FestivalsMusic festivals are a great and popular way to discover new music. Festivals and touring (as I understand it) are how artists make their money so there's an explosion of festivals now. Many of the festivals now are beyond stacked. It leaves me thinking "How are they all going to play there in 3 days?"Well, the secret is that many of them play for 30-40 minutes. This is a drag if you really like the band but it's great if you just want a sample.
Streaming services + AppsServices like Spotify, Rdio, and Grooveshark have more music than you could ever listen to. With the exception of artists who've opted out (e. g. The Beatles) they seem to have a good percentage of all music published in the last couple decades.
ChartsTop 100 charts (like Billboard) can be a great way to find out music that a lot of people like.
That's good! And I agree, I get excited for days when I find something new I like. Or even a song I haven't heard by a band I already know.For me, Bandcamp is a great place. Also looking up related musicians to the ones I currently listen to.
Especially live acoustic performances. Downloading from YouTube is a real hassle but I've done that plenty of times too.

Nice. It's also refreshing when a new band (either internationally or not) hearkens back to more old school sounds.https://youtu.be/hgQQyvgweC0
Those are good resources, thanks : )
That's great dude : )I think videogame OSTs and film scores are underrated.
Ah very nice. So what's the most recent addition?
the best song to fall asleep to!
I agree. Sounds pretty retro too. I like that about it.
right! it’s nice and relaxing😆
That's a really good question.So what's your go-to type of music?
that depends on my moods... but the easy answer would be "alternative"
Right. Pretty much just what ever sounds good
True, bandcamp is a good resource too. That I regularly use anyway
That's good thank you!
True. I so too. or maybe a few channels that have bands come in and perform, ones like KEXP
That's true. I'm kinda picky with rap & hip hop for that reason but I still look
"I love rock'n'roll! So put another dime in the juke box, baby!"
Same. Any luck lately?
Everyday. I use YouTube music and iTunes. some I download, some I just listen once.
That's good. I think that's a gift in life
