Easy peasy, lemon squeezy music hack: If you like a band, you’ll probably like the bands that influenced them.
Finding musical influences has been my mega tool for finding unbelievably good new (old) music. Thank goodness I was born in the age of the internet and I’ve rarely had to crack a book to research these things – although books are an amazing way of finding music too, NEVER DISREGARD BOOKS AS A SOURCE OF KNOWLEGE, but ain’t nobody got time fort that. Wikipedia and online blogs used to be my savior for finding these things but Inflooenz.com makes finding influences so much simpler. **This isn’t an ad and I in no way get money for saying these things (although I may be open to a sponsorship, hayyyy.)**
Inflooenz should be taken with a grain of salt, however. Not all the influences seem as thoroughly researched as they should be, but it is a great starting resource for further musical exploration.
