    Hey, does anyone know about any decent sites to czech out new music from? I use hype machine http://hypem.com/MilesOverDC heaps but it can be exhausting since there is no comprehensive database and it usually involves a lot of time spent in trial and error. You can find cool stuff sometimes but It'd be cool to find something with some more organization, rather than just relying on dumb luck all the time...

    Last.fm is a pretty decent music discovery site. But their catalog is fairly UK and Euro-centric. I use it mostly for the scrobbling feature.

    Pandora is also another popular site. You start out by entering a band name or song name. And then gradually, it will play songs from similar bands. I don't really like using it much, because after a while the song selection goes off on a big tangent and you suddenly find yourself listening to some crappy music.

    Spotify is alright. I use it mainly to listen to whole albums. They have a feature that lists similar artists, and sometimes hit or miss.

    And occasionally I check out Pitchfork to see what's new/popular.

    There's also a new one that my Partner's Frat Brother started recently...

    www.songza.com

    Think of it like Pandora but allows you to use 'themed playlists'

    Workout
    Making Dinner
    Strutting To Work
    Chill Dinner Music

    etc
