Where do you turn when you want to discover new music? There's the Spotify Discover Weekly playlist , but it doesn't always offer recommendations you're interested in. Furthermore, the service still can't shake off the allegations that it favors mainstream artists over indie artists, especially as it's tough for small artists to get their music onto the app in the first place. The depth and breadth of music to be discovered these days is mind-boggling. The problem is knowing where to look.

In the pre-internet dark ages, finding a new band or singer to obsess over required time and effort. But as streaming and other technological gifts have disrupted everything in our culture, the way we discover new music and artists has become easier. Streaming For artists, playlists are paramount. Tei Shi recommends checking out playlists on Spotify, Apple Music, and Tidal created by musicians you like, since, chances are, your tastes will align. That way your friend could potentially introduce you to a new song or artist on your own playlist. And when all else fails, falling down a YouTube or SoundCloud rabbit hole is still foolproof. Social Media Streaming platforms often source playlists from artists that originally broke on social media. Or you could be more proactive and find the buzzworthy songs yourself, like singer-songwriter Bibi Bourelly.
