I ran across this site the other day that might be another good resource for these types of associations.
>Gnod is a self-adapting system that learns about the outer world by asking its visitors what they like and what they don't like. In this instance of Gnod all is about music. Gnod is kind of a search engine for music you don't know about. It will ask you what music you like and then think about what you might like too. When I set Gnod online its database was completely empty. Now it contains thousands of bands and quite some knowledge about who likes what. And Gnod learns more every day. Enjoy :o)
/r/listentothis I've found some great stuff there. Also they always include genres in titles so you can use the search bar to find stuff you like.
http://www.gnoosic.com/ Put in 3 bands or people you like and it'll give you the name of someone you may or may not have heard of. Most cases I get someone I don't know.
Wander on youtube and soundcloud. Also last.fm, browse spotify playlists, hypem.com.
I personally put bands I already like into Gnoosic, and then whatever it spits out, I'll check ratings and reviews on rateyourmusic. Sometimes I'll discover something good on Google Play Music radio, too. I discovered my favorite band when I was 9, maybe 10. I was watching AMVs or some shit and the song "Succexy" by Metric came up, and I liked it so I listened to more songs by them. They are my all time #1 favorite band.
I like artist explorer from Spotify, gnoosic, and last.fm. I like last.fm the best probably because of its tracking service after creating an account. It tracks every song and artist you play and etc to give you a personalized recommendation, which is nice.
Start with music you already like.
Here are a few suggestions for branching out from there:
Once you find other bands you like from these avenues, rinse and repeat.
The internet in general I suppose, stuff like Last.FM, Gnoosic, MusicMap, etc. Reddit works well if you're looking for specific genres, seeing as there's a subreddit for nearly every (niche) genre.
Back in the day (2006-2011) I used to scour blogspots for (illegal) new music, those aren't really a thing anymore though.
Other than that I come across gems on YouTube every now and then, small bands and artists that I discover by accident.
Personally I'm not a massive fan of 'big' services like Pandora, Spotify, Deezer, etc. that don't allow or limit user added content, as those are usually missing a ton of good stuff. Granted this probably varies depending on what you're looking for, it has improved over the last few years, but Spotify especially is lacking.
I've discovered some interesting content through Gnoosic. It's a recommendation engine that filters crowdsourced music preferences via adaptive machine learning algorithms. I also search through the reposts and follows of artists I like on Soundcloud. I don't generally find the related artists on Spotify, Last.fm, and so on, to be that useful.
Ever try gnoosic? You input 3 bands and it suggests bands it thinks you will like, based off of that. It can get pretty obscure, too.
Sorry for the ugly link, I'm on mobile.
probably not new to any of you guys, but I found a website called gnoosic where you type in 3 artists/bands you like and it gives you recommended bands/artists you might like
How do you go about finding new music to listen to? I usually browse the new releases on Spotify and give each one a listen. If it's not my style, I'll move on after a few bars, but if I'm still undecided, I'll listen to one more track from the new album AND the artist's most played track on Spotify. Spotify will also show you other artists like the one you're listening too. At other times, I'll just play a random playlist based on mood, and discover a bunch of new (to me) artists and tunes I've never heard of.
You might also check out /r/ifyoulikeblank, Gnoosic, and Musicroamer.
I believe that's how Gnoosic works. Mine uses genres so its independent of personal music tastes of groups (aside from naming the genres)...that's actually the reason I tried writing this because some sites would just give you bands that other people liked. Those recommendations can have group-think-like biases and the networks are less well-connected (more hubs of popular things).
ODESZA - Say My Name
Portugal. The Man - Atomic Man
Other Lives - Tamer Animal
There is a website called Gnoosic that I like. You enter three artists you like and it tells you similar bands.
Edit - link
Also had pretty decent findings with http://www.gnoosic.com/ . Sometimes I now use my gf's spotify only for discovery, it's not bad. And some techno junkies in this room on jqbx https://app.jqbx.fm/room/brainwaves play decent stuff all day. It runs on spotify so, can't use it without a premium account (not 100% sure).
Over the last decade or more, I spent a lot of time on discogs.com for discovery, it's not good for suggestions ofc (unless you go to read other user's lists and read the forums), but to see an artist's / labels' whole release history is just friggin' amazing to me.
Digging through Spotify like a hog is my main strategy. But there are also sites like music-map or gnoosic that can help you find new artists based on things you like. I also use Boil The Frog cause it's fun.
i'd recommend madlib and freddie gibbs' album 'pinata'if you like the production on that then i would also listen to madvillainy if you havent already.
if you dont mind beat tapes, then j dilla - donuts, of course.might edit this later to add more cos im in class rn
Might be because Spotify's algorithm tries to categorize DGD with bands under various genres, which leads to your recommendations. I'd recommend Gnoosic to find band recommendations, it usually works a bit better for me. The downside is that it gives you three slots to put bands/artists in to give you better recommendations but I wish you the best of luck with that.
Metric, Ratatat, Broken Bells, Yelle, Copy, Make The Girl Dance, Teddybears Sthlm, DJ Bahler, Brazilian Girls, Taken By Trees, The Bird And The Bee
That seems a bit random to me. I suggest:
Death In Vegas, PJ Harvey, SONOIO, UNKLE, Grizzly Bear, Pumarosa, Gary Numan, La Femme, The xx, The Horrors
Of Monsters and Men
Cage the Elephant
Death Cab for Cutie
Some of my favorite alt rock/indie bands. Also try out this website and this website. The first you enter three bands and it suggests a similar one. The second you enter one band and it suggests a bunch that may be like it.
Not entering the contest just let you know how I find my music
I use gnoosic all the time. Basically you enter 3 of your favorite bands and it gives you recommendations of new groups to listen to. Then you like and dislike the recommendations and it figures out better what you like.
I don't know how similar it is, but i listen to Snarky alot and the genre in general. I mainly listen to: Go Go Penguin, Vulfpeck, Tigran Hamasayan (my favourite, but beware of diversity between tracks) :)
Edit: i also love using Gnoosic, you can input 3 artists and it will reccomend other artists for you.
He kicks it off with that little BB riff that I love so much. I came across him on this website by putting in SRV, Taste, and BB I think. Bought the album "Luthers Blues" straight away. He seems to be a cool mix of blues and souly funk. I am enjoying.
I've got a wayyyyyyy better solution.
Either ask Gnod <-- not a typo
Or go directly here or here
Way better than OP's suggestion. Gnod aggregates data from Amazon I believe. Also use it to discover artists, authors, and movies. Highly recommend this site. It's one of my top 10 that most people have never heard of.
1) Go on Spotify or Pandora, play a radio of one of your favorite artists and see what starts playing. I’ve found tons of new music by doing this.
2) http://www.gnoosic.com this site will tell you names of artists/bands that are similar to the ones you like.
Have you ever used the site Gnoosic? If you add your three favorite songs it will suggest other songs you may like. It's a pretty cool site. I've found a few bands I really like through it.
Well like I said those were just suggestions. I'm not personally into that type of music, I was just giving a few suggestions from what I know. But...
I have found a website that could help out. http://www.gnoosic.com/faves.php
It allows you to put in several of your favorite artists and it will recommend several artists based on your taste.
But again. If you just wanna try looking for genre defining. I'd say your taste sounds like a mix of Trap and R&B.
I need to go explore that everynoise page further. I was mistrustful at first because I'd used the parent site before and found it cool but inaccurate with some less-popular genres.
Here's a music finding site I've had some success with: http://www.gnoosic.com/
I actually got this from a different thread a few months back. Just put in a few artists you like and it starts suggesting similar artists. Way better than Spotify similar artist because this site looks at 3 artists as a whole versus just 1
Where are you finding new music? My suggestions:
Input your favorite artists, genres, or songs into Pandora and see what they recommend.
Do the same with TasteKid.
You could try Gnod which lets you input multiple artists. I like this one a lot.
I also think Music Map is pretty cool.
I believe it's actually the same darabase.
I'm not too familiar with her music/music of that style but there's a website called gnod (global network of discovery) where you type in artists/authors/movies you like and it gives you suggestions on what else you might like by similar artists/authors etc.
My problem with streaming radios is they are set playlist with the same bands over and over week after week. I feel like I don't get enough variety.
So what I like to do is go to sites like <strong>Gnoosic</strong> and tell it three groups/banks/artist that I like and let it suggest me some. In fact I think I am going to do that now.
The best thing I can suggest is to get spotify, and then commit some time to following the "related artists" train for a good few hours, you'd be surprised how many new great bands are out there that you haven't heard of. (Disclaimer: you're going to filter through a huge amount of shit before you find something you like).
Here's some you might like, that are some of my personal favourites;
These are not any particular genre, just some off the top of my head that I enjoy and you might too.
Before Spotify I used to use these resources;
/r/ambientmusic /r/trance /r/Psybient
I'll show myself out now.
But seriously, try searching spotify's playlists, or go to your favourite artists page, scroll down to "Appears On" and the playlists will likely contain similar music. There's also
Spotalike that creates spotify playlists of songs similar to a song you input. Gnoosic gives you artists similar to 3 you enter. Finally, feel free to head over to /r/electronicmusic for daily discussion threads and a very active community.
Edit: There's also a massive list to explore in /r/electronicmusic wiki from news sources to spotify playlists, top tracks and genre specific playlists
/r/listentothis is a neat source to discover new music.
Also, this page: http://www.gnoosic.com/
Have some playlists I made:
German indie stuff
If you want some more, just tell me. I always like to give good music recommendations.
/u/MSweeny81 covered the base pretty well, but if you want, there are a couple websites that could help you find some bands based on ones you like. Gnoosic has a feature that recommends based on three bands you enter and also has a "music map", while Musicroamer has a more detailed music map option. Hope this helps!
Don't worry about it, everyone has plateaus where curiosity overcomes comfort and they need new material. Before I suggest anything though, I couldn't tell exactly what you were reaching for; was it more the distorted and upbeat yet almost mournful sound you liked, or the female vocalists, or was it the similarity to earlier genres like punk and 80's synth. If you can explain what exactly about the tracks drew you to them I can be far more specific in what I recommend.
I'd also suggest using gnoosic which allows you to find artists similar to ones you already like. It's an adapting system so the more people use it, the more accurate its suggestions.
Edit: Maybe Post Ape - The World Is Over or When Saints Go Machine - Fail Forever
Can't really help you with suggestions but I've used this site to find some bands I like.
> Gnoosic <
I've always liked > Guano Apes - Open Your Eyes <
Have you ever heard of Perfect Confusion? It's Matt Shultz, Brad Shultz, and Jared Champion's other band. It's pretty similar to CTE's debut.
You could make a post at /r/CageTheElephant, and they'd help you. That's how I found some good bands.
There's /r/ifyoulikeblank, where you post a band you like, and people give some bands like them. In the top posts there's a few sites that are exactly what you're looking for.
Is also recommend Arctic Monkeys and Pixies. My favorite AM songs are Brianstorm, Pretty Visitors, and R U Mine. For Pixies, just get Doolittle. It was a huge inspiration for Thank You, Happy Birthday, especially songs like Japanese Buffalo (sounds just like Crackity Jones) and Around my Head.
Edit: This is what you're looking for.
http://www.gnoosic.com/ is a site wich work almost like the last.fm recommendation system. The difference is that you type in three of your favorite bands and then the site gives you suggestions of similiar bands.
Then you answer if you like it, don't like it or don't know it. Nothing I use regularly, but sometimes, and I saw that no one have mentioned it before.
Music map and Gnoosic are some that come to mind, with this one, Spotalike, you can create a playlist based on a song from a specific artist.
i discovered this by using the website gnoosic and plugging in some artists i liked. i think they make beautiful music and more ppl need to hear this! oh, i also like their song “tangerine cloud”. wish i knew more about this artist
Also, gnoosic.com/ is an incredible starting point for finding new music. You just enter a couple of your favourite artists, and the site automatically suggests you new artists that you would likely enjoy!
> Je me demande s'il y a un truc qui existe ou tu rentres les titres que tu aimes et qui te dit "les gens qui ont aimé ces musiques là aiment aussi celles là" ou un truc du genre.
Oui et oui
I've discovered so much great music by taking a spin thru gnoosic for a new artist, finding a playlist on Spotify or YouTube, and then dropping a couple of hours into Rocket League!
There's suggestion services online where you insert a band and they suggest 4 or 5 similar that you may like, such as Gnoosic, Musicroamer or Every noise at once.
Other than that you can always try Spotify radios that you can create based on a song, album or artist. They will contain similar music you probably never listened to.
You could try this: http://www.gnoosic.com/
It helps you discover new music based on artists you already like. From my experience, it’s pretty damn great. Really spot on with suggestions and I’ve found a lot of cool artists with it.
About a year ago I came across a site called Gnoosic which lets you input 3 bands and will generate a huge list of other bands who sound similar to the 3 suggestions.
I’ve honestly found around 15/20 new bands through this!
Im not well versed at all in this kind of EDM so i can't really help you there.
You could try gnoosic if you want to discover some more music. Its a pretty cool system that recommends you artists based on the stuff you like.
This is quite the stretch, but maybe try filling in some bands that come real close to whatever you remember, on algorithms like Gnoosic.com. Then just look at/listen to the top 5 songs of whatever comes up in the first few results...? Might get you close(r)...
I'm with you, until Apple fixes their recommendations I'm stuck with Spotify. Btw, last time I was reading a thread like this, someone recommended this website for band suggestions: http://www.gnoosic.com/ and I'm using it a lot since then, maybe you'll like it too.
Try this thing .. http://www.gnoosic.com/ frankly I don't care about limited option opinion polls, but that thing might help you find stuff you like that you didn't know about (or help others find it).
I saw Iron Maiden last night and it was fantastic. I got an MRI this morning and the tech played them for me. Looking for some trad recs--I don't know much about this subgenre outside of the essentials.
Also plugging this cool music recommendation engine I found yesterday:
Not an app but a website. You put in up to 3 bands you like and it gives artist that you might liked based on them. Once a band comes up I haven’t heard of I’ll create a station based on them or listen to a few of their top tracks.
This site lets you enter in 3 artists you like and can suggest multiple other artists/groups based upon the 3 you entered. Not people suggesting it technically, but pretty nifty tool that helped me find some of my current faves.
Recently I've been listening to Fit For A King and Wage War. Remstage is also pretty good, but he's more Djent than metal.
Try out this site, too. It gives some pretty good recommendations based on your interests.
I have played around with Gnoosic (http://www.gnoosic.com) in the past, and got to know some great new music I still listen to today. Gnoosic is a self- learning algorithm that recommends new music based on what you already like now.
Also, talk to the people who work at your local record store. Got some super awesome recommendations from them.
I us a website called Gnoosic. It found out about it in a r/askreddit thread. It's help me find a couple of bands. How it works is by you putting in three bands and it somehow calculates that and then it suggests a new band.
In Angles - Passenger
Found out about these guys when I was messing around in Gnoosic a few months ago and haven't been able to stop listening since. They remind me a lot of Lower Definition, another favorite band.
The main way I use everynoise.com is to search an artist to find its genres, which you mentioned. There is a little search box hidden at top far right. Then I can search Spotify for "The Sound of [genre]" playlist. That search fails sometimes (Spotify's search doesn't return unpopular playlists, even if they are Spotify's own very important playlists), but you can find all of them in this massive dump of Spotify playlists, plus a lot of other useful playlists.
Here are some other tools:
There are a bunch of playlist generators, but none that I love except Spotify's (mentioned above). There are also Spotify's recommended tracks under each playlist on desktop, but I prefer the Create Similar Playlist option.
Well, unfortunately, I think I only named 2 - Muse (which you already know) and Tame Impala (which is basically Kevin Parker's - the lead singer's project; he writes almost all of the stuff and records it alone too). I would gladly recommend similar artists to Tame Impala, but there's just none. If you want to actively look for new artists, I suggest this tool: http://www.gnoosic.com/
Find some cool subreddits that focus on the genres you like. Or even try to find off-reddit forums that focus on that stuff. The internet can be your friend/mentor when it comes to finding new music.
Do you have Pandora in Turkey? Try starting a Pandora station for an artist you like and see what else it suggests to you.
You can also try this website that suggests new music
I've started using this to find new music. Plug in small fairly unknown or niche bands, and it'll match it with other small niche groups in a similar genre. I love it. Found it on Reddit a few months back :D http://www.gnoosic.com
Check out gnoosic. It's a simple site with an extensive database, that offers suggestions to you based on your interests. Any recommendations I'd have could be hit or miss, but this goes off of what you already like.
It's basically a search engine that gives you different music artists that are similar to the inputs you give it, and then it adapts based on what others have also thought were similar genres/styles. (it doesn't play music itself so after you a get an artist name you have to look it up on youtube or something)
The GNOD might be a good place to start. Its an adaptive algorithm that learns from other users interactive and is the oldest of its type on the internet. I've been going to its music section since 1996 and have found a lot of bands I would have never discovered other wise.
There are some great online resources for this. Personally I use the "Music you may like" or "Because you listened to..." or "Similar artist" tabs of applications like Spotify or online radios like Jango and Pandora. On this note, online radios are a great resource if you search by genre, if you want more Indie music, listen to something like "IndieNow" or Indie Classics" and you'll find artist you've never heard of. Or if this all seems like to much work there exists any sites such as http://www.gnoosic.com/ where you type in artist you like and in recommends one's for you to check out.
Hopefully this is helpful, and happy music hunting!
Go to shows of bands you like at smaller venues, where they often have smaller unknown bands open for them, you'd be surprised how good some of them are!
I get a lot from r/metal. Sometimes I'll use tools like Music Roamer or Gnoosic to find more specific recs
Edit: The Encyclopedia Metallum is also a good site to frequent
Both have been around for a while, but thanks to Gnoosic I stumbled across Galneryus and Jupiter. They're both Japanese power metal with incredible guitarists, cannot recommend them enough.
My favourite band is Queen. I had downloaded some of their songs early last year. I then found out one of my friends is a big fan of them and was always playing their greatest hits (platinum edition) whenever he was driving. I downloaded the album and was hooked.
At my grade 12 prom last year, some awesome person requested Bohemian Rhapsody and the mic was passed around with most people taking a turn singing.
I recently found out another friend of mine is also a Queen fan, so we sang together on our way back from Comic Con.
Right now, though, I'm hooked on Set It Off. They're a rock band who isn't very popular. I found them through this website. It asks for three of your favourite bands, then suggests bands you might like.
I feel the same. There's always new music to listen to, and sometimes it can be daunting. I like picking bands that have been around for a while and just exploring their discography.
There's also a sort of music map online that gives you musicians or bands that are similar to the ones you like. I'm gonna see if I can find a link to the website.
Edit: I couldn't find the exact website that I was looking for, but I did find something similar. You might've heard of it.
King James' Programming
This is probably funnier if you have some experience with the programming lingo, but give it a go nonetheless!
Using Markov Chains with the holy bible and some programming text books as input, generates random
text. Markov Chains essentially tell you how probable it is that any given word follows any other given word based on some training data (here the text books).
For, behold, I have set up stack monitoring, as at the first.
Enter three of your favorite bands, it gives you recommendations for new bands you might like. The algorithm is fairly on point!
After 10 new suggestions, you are presented with a list of your input and all the suggestions.
You can also browse their music map, which is an interactive map of bands, where the proximity of bands determine their similarity.
I have found these sites recommended here on Reddit, you could try them out, I found a couple of nice bands because of these websites.
You are doing it wrong. Grooveshark has this radio button that tries to give you songs that are similar to the ones you selected, it usually doesn't, but every now and then it gives you very good songs.
Another way to discover new music is through pages like the old MusicRoamer page (new version doesn't seem to work) or music-map.com or you can also try gnoosic.com or thesixtyone to discover unkown groups.
Anyway, for me the best source for finding new music are the online radio stations in iTunes. In my case, mainly Radio Paradise, which is quite eclectic when is not playing country.
Fecking Bahamas Lists different Math/experimental rock bans by country. This map Will list the bands yt the subgenre the bands are tagged under.
Gnoosic Will help you discover new artists based on the bands you list. It will just continuously list bands you might like.
Jamz - Holy cow it's been a random week, in part because I found Gnoosic where you put in three artists and it recommends more. So far I've listened to Salah Edin (Dutch/Moroccan Rap), Damien Saez (french something), Mucca Pazza (Punk Rock Circus Act), A great Big World (Pop), and Mahousyoujo-ni-naritai(death metal J-Pop, it's like a random video game in your head).
Jam - Peach Raspberry is the best! I put it on everything, is it a cookie? Jam. Biscuit? Jam. Popcorn? Jam and more jam.
Favorite things! - Rain, waterbottles, mountains, cumin, tea.
Hobbies - Cooking, photography, hiking
You could use Gnoosic. It's basically a website where you fill in 3 artists/bands/groups you enjoy listening to, and it will calculate other artists with similar music style.
have you ever seen gnoosic? it asks for bands you like then offers up other bands you might like. i dunno how comprehensive the db is but it returned a lot of bands i already know i like. might be useful for newer folks.
it also has a band map as well, cool though it includes Mozart on the map for Agnostic Front.
The whole concept behind music-map (or Gnod, the generic system) is association, not similarity. Apparently a lot of people like both Lana Del Rey and Skrillex. That's why they appear rather close to each other.
Start with those three - see what develops. Have fun exploring.
The map is fun too:
Also, I listened to a lot of Mastodon and Kvelertak when Baroness was my favorite band.
It finds similar artists given some of your favorites. For each artist you can also click "on the map" and it will bring up a chart where similar artists are grouped together.
