Thread: how do you know your music?

    Default how do you know your music?

    A lot of people mention bands I've never heard of or mention a release that I had no idea came out so I wondered HOW DO YOU KNOW THAT?!

    I hear about bands from friends who recomend stuff, my husband has introduced me to a lot of noise bands I'd never heard of before but I feel so out of it not knowing that one of my favourite bands (X marks the Pedwalk) released something had Seraphim not mentioned it. So the only way I know about anything anymore is reading what people mention here.

    1. Billboard Magazine, baby!
    2. Use ElectroGarden as a tool. You will discover many bands here, and people will hook you up when you get to know them. (Including, but not limited to, me. )
    3. Don't be afraid to ask. Most of us here in ElectroGarden won't laugh you out of the thread for asking a question.

    5. SlothRadio has TONS of cool songs that you can listen to. Check it out! http://www.slothradio.com

    My knowledge of Synthpop starts in 1978. There were 3 bands doing it then!
    My knowledge of the industrial style and roorts gos back to the mid 1970's

    I know bands by

    1. Friends
    2. Bands that have any relation with bands that I like
    3. Compilation CDs / Promos

    or a friend record something to me, or I'll hear few songs on the internet to take a preview of them, if I like, I buy his album, and maybe the singles too.

    you only need to search, search and search...

    1. Internet. Forums, websites, chat rooms, internet radios, online record stores, whatever. All-Music Guide has been the most useful site.

    2. Magazines. Album reviews, interviews, etc.

    3. Connections to other bands (side projects, cover songs, remixes, etc.)

    4. Friends

    5. Compilations

    I have to say that I've learned of nearly half of the bands I listen to today through EGN...and boy, did I feel completely uneducated at first for not knowing them... Otherwise it's usually through the internet, friends, clubs (yes, I'm one of those ppl that go up to the dj and ask them what they were playing, which album/single/remix etc ) and browsing at cd titles in record shops-a good cover and interesting song titles can make me curious and sometimes I'll buy the cd just because of that, but I've never regretted a single cd I've bought that way.

    internet radio is great, two of my fave stations are RantRadio [www.rantradio.com] and ampedOut [www.ampedout.net]. i've discovered many acts thru them - which is why laws that attempt to impose tariffs on these stations is RETARDED. it's promoting underground music and these god-awful tariffs go to the big5 douchebag labels. grrr.
    *terminate rant sequence* sorry...

    and also asking DJs at clubs, chatting with the dudes that sell CDs at live gigs, EGN, 6degrees-of-seperation-remix game, yadda yadda.

    cheers,
