5 Great Places to Discover New Indie Music Online

If you want to discover great music, you shouldn’t be scouring the back pages of your local newspaper; you should be looking through the plethora of sources and music discovery tools online. The web is an incredible place to discover new and upcoming musicians. In fact, the old model of expensive advertising and marketing campaigns for new album releases and upcoming tours is over. The web is now the place where new artists make their presence known. These days, you won’t find the hottest artist of the year on a billboard, so it helps to know where to look online. Here are five great places to discover new indie music online.

  1. Facebook. The social media behemoth is not only a great tool to keep in touch with old friends, but it is also a great place to market and advertise new music. So, if you are looking for the newest artists, you may want to search through Facebook to find a new band to place on your playlist. One of the best ways to go about finding new music on Facebook is to look through your friends ‘likes’ – there is a good chance that you will find great new artists through the common interests of your friends.
  2. YouTube. This is another great place to look for new artists, because not only can you watch music videos and listen to new releases, but you can also watch interviews to learn more about the artist. One of the best ways to search for new music on YouTube is to search a certain genre of music you like and then sample various artists that come up. You may also find the YouTube channel of an independent online record label. If you like one artist’s music, there is good chance that you’ll enjoy other bands that they have on their roster.
  3. Tweewoo. This is one of the most incredibly new places to find new artists. Not only is this website a hub to stream and download music, but you can also watch live concerts by independent artists. If you live in an area where it takes you multiple hours to get to the closest city, this website is the perfect opportunity to discover new artists – no matter where you live.
  4. Blogs. The web is also host to thousands of music blogs – each with their own theme and genre. So, if you are a fan of a certain kind of music, you may want to do a search for some of the major blogs of that genre. In fact, certain search engines, like Google, offer the ability to search specifically through blogs. So, all you have to do is enter your search query and let your journey begin.
  5. Spotify. This is a subscription based web application that can be accessed on your computer and your smartphone. This application is amazing, because for just a small fee, you can have access to hundreds of new indie bands. Best of all, if you listen to one band and like their music, Spotify will recommend other bands and musicians you may also like. In the end, you’ll never be out of the loop when it comes to new indie music.
