    A personalized Spotify playlist every Monday

    janniksSoftware Engineer, Innsbruck · Written
    Spotify already has great features included! 'Discover Weekly' is one of them, but also 'Playlist/Song Radio' 🎶

    by far the best. hands down. nothing comes even close to the quality of the recommendations and the simplicity of the experience
    Spotify Discover in general is amazing. I have found so many great artists using Spotify's Browse > Discover section.

    Apple Music

    All the ways you love music. All in one place.

    For ten bucks a month, I am presented with thousands of newly curated playlists in every which form there could ever be. Further, they have real radio stations with DJs that actually care about good music, and not just putting out the top 16 hit songs of the month. I don't possibly know how my music discovery system could get any better than Apple Music.
    Similar like Spotify Discover Weekly, there is a playlist called "My New Music Playlist". Updated Weekly. And there are a lot of new playlists daily on your "For you" Tab. I love it.

    Hype Machine is just simply the best for discovery of less known tracks & remixes. Nothing compares to it!

    I've been using Noon Pacific for a few weeks now and it's a simple, curated list of good new songs. Easy to use and no hassles with subscriptions.

    They also have a daily subscription offering that gets you a text with link to new song ($1.99/mo)

    I have found great success with the "I'm Feeling Lucky" radio feature which has worked very well for discovery every time I've used it. They also have given me great recommendations for new releases, and I've usually found at least one gem each day from both features. I've been using this service for over a year, and have found it to fulfill all my discovery needs.

    It's hard to believe this hasn't been mentioned yet... With all of the data they have from years and years of scrobbling (i.e. "listening" -- 1 song play = 1 "scrobble"), Last.fm is my #1 place for finding new music to listen to. It recommends based on your listening habits, or by the habits of others who like that same artist/album/song. Give it a go!

    I use Tidal to discover new music and rediscover older albums. Sound quality is great and it comes with an offline mode. Love it.
