discovering new music

1. Start here: www.thedownplayer.com

2. Download all of the tracks. (They change every day.)

3. Listen to them, flagging those which strike your fancy.

4. Research the flagged artists – mine today were Motopony, N.E.R.D. (warning: autoplays music), and Tame Impala.

5. Don’t forget Wikipedia, for tidbits like this: “The economy sucks, girls are still beautiful. We wanted to make music that reflected that.” -Pharrell Williams

6. Listen to more on myspace, grooveshark, whatever new-fangled music streaming application you happen to have discovered.

7. Follow your heart.
