This is a great blog for anyone who is looking to find new music. The author gives great advice on how to find your new favorite band. He talks about how you can use online services like Pandora, LastFM, and Rhapsody to discover new music. He also discusses some of the most popular bands and genres.
I’m not talking about the same music you and everyone else have been listening to for years. There is a lot of new music being released every day, but it’s hard to find it if you don’t know where to look.
I know how it feels to be in this situation. I spent years without knowing any new music, always listening to the same old songs over and over again. And then one day I realized (after hearing a weird song on the radio) that there was a whole world of new music out there, just waiting for me to discover it.
So, I started looking around and after some time I found a few really great bands that made me fall in love with music again. And now I want to share with you the best ways to find new music!
1. Find a band you love and let their music guide you to others.
This is the most common way of finding new music, we are all comfortable with it and it is probably how you found out about most of the bands in your music collection. If you really like a band chances are that they have collaborated with other artists or been on a compilation with them, so go find out who they have worked with and see if you like the collaborations or compilations. Also check out who they have covered or who has covered them, sometimes the cover can be better than the original song! There are also lots of sites on the web where you can find out about similar artists for free, for example Last.fm and Pandora.
2. Ask friends and family what music they like and try it out.
Everybody has someone in their family that loves music and knows more than they think they do, this person is usually your dad or uncle although can sometimes be your sister or auntie but not so often! So why not ask them what albums they have been listening to lately? They might surprise you by telling you about an artist that will really blow your mind! Your friends are also another great source of new music, just ask what their favorite band
The best way I have found to find new music is by going to shows. After a show I always ask the band what they are listening to or who else I should check out. It is a great way to discover new music.
We have gotten so many bands from this method, and we can’t wait to share them with you!
Make sure to leave us a comment after the show and tell us who your favorite band was.Don’t forget to check out our site for new tour dates: http://www.theband.com
I’ve been to a lot of concerts in my life. In fact, I’ve been to so many that I would go as far as to say that I have seen more live music than 95% of all people alive today.
I’m not saying this to brag (well, maybe a little bit), but rather to give you an idea of the kind of authority on the matter of live music that I possess.
Now, one thing that all these concerts have taught me is that there are many different ways to discover new bands. You can hear about them from friends or family, see them perform on TV or online, or simply stumble upon them by accident at a show.
And each one of these methods has its pros and cons: The first one relies on your friends’ musical tastes, whereas the second depends on which talent scouts are in charge of booking the shows.
The third method is similar in this regard, except that it’s even worse because you’re also relying on chance here. And doing so takes away the control you might have had over the situation if you had heard about the band from your friends and then decided whether or not you wanted to check them out.
I know that I shouldn’t be writing this blog post right now, or at least not this early. I should be working on the second to last chapter of my thesis draft. But over the past few days and months I’ve found myself thinking about live electronic music and I can’t seem to shake the topic out of my head. So, it’s time for a blog post.
I think that live electronic music is something special. While it is not necessarily a new thing (it has been around for decades), there is still no other musical genre that quite captures the experience of a live performance in quite the same way as does live electronic music. For one thing, as someone who plays in a band, I can attest to the fact that much of what occurs on stage during a typical band’s set will not actually be heard by anyone attending the show. With live electronic music, however, you could hand someone headphones and they would hear exactly what is occurring on stage: all of the knob turning, everything going through effects pedals and samplers (and whatever else) is all there for your listening pleasure. Secondly, I find it hard to imagine how any other type of musical performance could ever sound quite so organic and human as does live electronic music. After all,
Sunnyvale, CA-based cloud storage and data management company Box today announced it has acquired Subspace, a company that developed software for analyzing network traffic at massive scale. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Subspace’s focus was on making sense of large amounts of network traffic data, with the goal of offering advanced security and fraud detection. The company’s technology was aimed at “cloud-scale” services like Box and other enterprise companies.
A blog post by Box CTO Sam Schillace says that Subspace’s technology will be integrated into Box Shield, the company’s existing security platform.
With this acquisition, we are bringing to bear a new approach to detecting threats in our customers’ environments,” wrote Schillace. “This combines machine learning and anomaly detection with deep expertise in network protocols to detect attacks even when they don’t match known threat signatures.”
