How To Discover New Music (Part 3)

Part 1 of “How to Discover New Music” (read it here) was about music podcasts.

Part 2 (here) was about attending concerts.

Part 3 is about interviews and playlists.

Read, listen to (audio), or watch (video) interviews with artists you like, especially interviews that focus on having artists make playlists of music that they like.

Example #1: I discovered the song “Saturday” by Rachael Cantu and “5 Years Time” by Noah and the Whale by listening to Ben Lee’s podcasts and reading a playlist he made.

Example #2: Holly Miranda tweeted a link to “It’s Okay” by Land of Talk. A playlist by Lizzie Powell of Land of Talk featured the song “Re: Stacks” by Bon Iver and “One Man” by Eulogies:

Example #3: An interview with Brian Wilson and Zooey Deschanel led me to discover “This Will Be Our Year” by The Zombies.
