Where’s the best place to find new music? Well, that all depends what you’re into. These are three failsafe blogs that cater to just about any taste:
NPR doesn’t just have one music blog, its got several. If you’re into classical, check out Deceptive Cadence. If jazz is more your scene, check out A Blog Supreme. With The Record, they’ve got you covered on both the news and new music front. And definitely give All Songs Considered’s Tiny Desk Concert series some attention.
All Music Guide is, no surprise, where you’ll find all kinds of music. The blog’s editorial staff regularly puts together playlists of new music as well as classic rock. This is a really excellent resource for fans of music from just about any era!
