Nice looking song list, G. Wonder which will take longer: dragging and dropping the above one by one into a Goallums precious 2011 playlist in Spotify, ORRR.... you enabling social for 2 minutes and making this public so that I can hit "subscribe".

Most certainly! But it'll only take 15 minutes the Spotify way so sweat it not. I WILL make this though. Always get a kick outta shuffling someone else's personal playlist.

As far as not discovering new music, a few factors figure in that folks are discounting. There is NO rock radio. And before you say KROQ, which plays mainstream music and music they want to become hits, and internet radio, which just isn't feasible for most...when I was growing up I was constantly exposed to new music. And It wasn't just KNAC or KLOS/KMET, even KROQ was more varied/not as safe in their playlist. Add to that the numerous video outlets, magazines and even a thriving club scene. Hell, even if you didn't go see most of the shows you couldn't help but pick up a BAM and get an idea of what you might like to give a spin. They say the internet has made things easier to find, that may be, but because it's soooooo diluted most folks have no idea where to start looking. I find most 'new' music thru Sirius radio or my Amazon recommend list these days. I just don't think there is as much to find out there anymore. Due to the internet and the ability to diy music has become diluted. As far as the music I like there are so many bands that just sound the same. Asking Alexandria/Breaking Benjamin/and all these safe-rock bands. We used to laugh that Christian rock would never sell because it sounded so tame, well it looks like they get the last laugh because i'd swear half these bands were on the Jeebus wagon. Nothing wrong with that but music isn't supposed to be so cookie cutter. And since I sound old already, may as well keep ranting, where are the future Rolling Stones type bands...ones that will last 20 years or more, and actually put out a body of work and MOST IMPORTANTLY, influence bands years later. I can't think of any. So music will get progressively watered down and eventually the bad will outweigh the good. There's my 2 cents...Happy New Year!

pretty sure KROQ still plays the same local h song constantly, and i'm just guessing

Discovering new music? Last.fm has been pretty useful to me.

Yeah, LastFM and their "similar artists" is another excellent resource.
But I still think music blogs are the way to go.

For me it's mostly music blogs (primarily Drowned in Sound) and friends' recommendations (e.g., Adgy pimped the **** out of Chelsea Wolfe, same with gescom and Metronomy, just to name a couple). But not exclusively - of those on my list there are a few I discovered as opening acts for headliner bands I went to see (Other Lives, The Vaccines, EMA)...
