any notable artists?

i like last.fm. just type in an artist you like and they recommend others, or scrobble your itunes or whatever music player you use and it recommends other artists to you.

I’ve had a good run with last.fm since joining in 2007. Some musicians will message listeners who listen heavily to a particular sound/band/artist and ask you to give them a listen. Aside from that, the feature that picks new music based on what I’ve listened to before has revealed a few keepers.

@dreamwolf I just look through the various music threads.

I use soundclick , although it contains mostly unsigned artists there are quite a few very talented individuals/groups there.

Turntable.fm, Last.fm, /mu/, Tumblr (by looking through tags.) Also check out forums of your favorite artists (if they have any), I’ve found some neat bands that way.
