Where To Find New Music – Volume 5

All good things must come to an end, and thus, so does this series. Throughout this week, I have made several sources of new music available to you, and hopefully these can help you get your new music fix. Here are a few more sites that are worth mentioning, but didn’t necessarily fit into any of the previous categories.


New Music Express is the number 1 music magazine in the UK, and their online portal is an amazing resource. Music news about new bands, upcoming artists and the ones you already know and love. Opinion pieces, album reviews and a killer streaming radio service make this one a can’t miss.

CBC Radio 3

Don’t let the CBC banner fool you. Radio 3 is not your parents CBC. Quite the opposite. With news, artist pages several different streams, as well as the option to pick songs and build a playlist make this one a keeper. However, when you factor in the archives of live performances, interviews and exclusive content, this one jumps to the top of the list.


Daytrotter is a great content generator. They manage to get up and coming artists to sit down and record exclusive sessions. These sessions are one of a kind, as artists like this never get this kind of venue to express their music. Along with a weekly newsletter to keep you informed of new sessions, a most-listened-to sidebar and some really cool illustrations of the artists daytrotter is a can’t miss.

I hope this series is helpful, and feel free to suggest sites I may have missed here, or anything else I need to know about.
