I am trying to look for new bands in all types of music, so i would like to know if anyone on fp has found any good music sites where you can find new artists?
[url=http://www.music-map.com/]Music-Map[/url] and [url=last.fm]Last.fm[/url] are good sites.
[url=http://www.metal-archives.com/]Encyclopaedia Metallum[/url] if you're looking for metal. Pandora was also kinda good back when it didn't suck. And you'll be surprised what Wikipedia can give you sometimes. I found my [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thyrfing]favourite band[/url] there. But yeah, as TheGuru said: Music-Map and Last.FM are probably the best sites.
Also for new artists [url]http://www.purevolume.com/[/url]
[url]http://www.Sadsteve.com[/url] Good search engine.

I've found blocks of like 20 post-thrash bands with at least one full length (I don't bother with EPs or demos because I don't want to litter my collection with a bunch of folders with 4 tracks in them) that have not a single song on YouTube, and it drives me crazy.
Pandora isn't bad
Too bad it doesn't work in most countries.
Thanks, any others?

[url]www.sputnikmusic.com[/url] I find a lot of new music through this website. You can't obtain music through it, but I find a lot of stuff to check out.
Pitchfork.com is a pretty good review site, I browse the Best New Music section from time to time.
[url]http://rateyourmusic.com/[/url] has good lists if you are looking for bands in specific genre or year or something like that, they also have decent ratings for albums [url]http://www.allmusic.com/[/url] gives you similar artists that both inspired and were inspired by bands
