    "Apple music is a very good app. It allows you to search for artists or songs or related music so that you may find your favorite songs or new music that is similar to an artist or a song. It also allows you to easily browse through thousands of songs at your leisure."

    "I was having trouble finding recommendations for new music to listen to so I got Spotify. I listened to a couple of albums by artists that I like, and then looked at recommended artists. I had never heard of most of them, and while some of them weren't very interesting to me, many of them were really good."

    "Soundcloud has an easy to use interface that makes browsing for new artists in well-loved genres easy and fun. By searching for either a particular artist or a genre, you will be given several options to listen to. I was able to find some great bluegrass music using Soundcloud's search feature."

    "I really enjoy listening to new music. I sometimes don't know where to go to find new artist or see whats trendy. Bandcamp lets me do both of those things. I have the ability to check out new artist, listen to songs, and read up on bands. It definitely is something I use all the time and recommend it to all my music buff friends."

    "Using twitter to look for new music works out okay, I guess, but I'd probably use something else in the future. Most of the time if I find a new band on Twitter, it's because an artist that I already listen to tweets about them or re-tweets them, and a lot of the artists I follow don't usually do that kind of thing. It's great for keeping up with people you're already a fan of, though."

    "This is a pretty good app for finding new music. It tracks your preferences and suggests new music that is similar to what you already like. Occasionally the suggestions are bad, but that's to be expected since musical tastes are subjective. I've discovered a few new bands I want to follow already, so overall this app has satisfied me."

    "I get sick of listening to the radio and hearing the same songs over and over. I recently started using mixcloud and have been able to find new artists that I enjoy. I am able to listen to a large selection of radio programs and DJ mixes wherever I go."

    "Whenever my music playlists become stale, I find my way over to last.fm to find new artists and see what other people with similar musical taste to me are listening to right now. It is easy to find people that are listening to music that I'm already listening to and see artists that I've never heard of or never given enough attention to. By connecting the accounts where you already listen to music you can provide more information on artists that are linked, all by listening to the bands you already enjoy! Try last.fm to help others find new music, but mostly to use the power of crowds to find music you would enjoy as well."

    "What can I say? Shazam has always been there for me when I needed to find out what a song on the radio is. It's easy to use (believe me, if even I can use it), and I have yet to have it ever not get a song correct on the first try. I highly recommend Shazam."

    "I've had a few relationships that took a downward spiral after a long car trip where we got to know each other's music tastes. Too many Gomezette's and Beliebers were in my dating life before I found Tastebuds. Dating and music squished together? YES PLEASE!!!!! You've saved me from another nightmare road trip for sure!"

    "I have paroozed Daily Music on occasion to discover new music, however, I am more drawn to oldies such as Guns & Roses, Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains, etc. For this reason it is difficult to find necessarily "New Music" however for current music this is a great resource."
