Nowadays there is so much new music coming out at once that it is hard to keep up!
So here’s a little list of the 5 best websites to discover new music– and no, I’m not talking about all those sites you already know about!
Fanburst is quickly making a huge impact on the online streaming game. Since SoundCloud decided to stop allowing remixes Fanburst has been thriving and it does not look like the site’s growth is slowing down any time soon. You can find some of the coolest unknown tracks right on Fanburst’s Popular page but don’t be afraid to go exploring through the “Trending Playlist” section to find some real good hidden tunes. If you’re an independent artist who is not on Fanburst yet then you’ll be playing catch up soon on this new and game-changing streaming platform. Many up-and-coming artists are making a big name for themselves on Fanburst, like Chester Watson, Snails, Trill Sammy, Opia, Mula Gang, and Cat Clyde.
Cymbal is a super cool way to quickly see what the hottest new tracks are right away. The seamless design allows you to instantly see the top trending songs and stream them through Spotify, Apple Music, or SoundCloud if available. If you like the song you’re streaming you just upvote it and the song will move up the trending list and vice versa if it’s a song you don’t like!
A ton of artists have been moving to Vid.me to share their music videos and the video sharing platform is home to some of the coolest music videos I have ever seen. You’ll find a ton of independent artists as well as a few notably big ones. What separates Vid.me from YouTube is the fact that a small, unheard of artist’s music video will show up on the front page right next to a bigger artist’s video. So not only does this help with discovering new music but it also helps smaller artists get the exposure they need!
Have you ever found a song that you really like and you decide to share it but you don’t know what link to share? Some people have Spotify, others have Apple Music, and there’s even some people out there still use TIDAL! There are just too many competing music platforms now and you don’t want to accidentally share the wrong link. Well Songlink.io is your solution to that problem. Songlink takes all the available streaming links for the song, even YouTube videos, and puts them altogether under one simplified and shareable link.
Peanut Butter & Good Jams, or PB & Good Jams for short, is not just your average music blog. Each day of the week PB & Good Jams selects two or three songs which they call “Tasty!” and adds them to their playlists. Their “Tasty! Jams” as they like to call them contain some of the best unknown music out there with brand new jams from ODESZA, Action Bronson, Aminé, Flight Facilities, and featured songs from small artists that you’ve probably never heard of like Two Feet, Lauff, and Oliver Tree.
