How to Discover New Music (Part 1)

Even for music lovers, listening to the same music can get stale. If you feel like your iTunes is repeating the same songs over and over again, you need to update your library!

Keep things fresh. There’s a lot of music out there that’s either plain bad or that you don’t connect with, doesn’t move you, or just isn’t special. But, there are many ways to find new music that you really like.

One word…Podcasts. Some good music podcasts to subscribe to are:

1. KEXP Song of the Day

2. The Interface (Spinner.com)

3. iTunes Celebrity Playlist Podcast


4. KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic

5. NPR: Live Concerts from All Songs Considered

6. XM Weekly Music
