What tools do you use or prefer to use to find new music?

Word of mouth or finally listening to the band that a friend jotted down on a piece of scrap paper or a receipt for me to listen to later(offline recommendations) have always been a few of my favorite way of getting into a band/new music in general.
I experience Spotify as just one of many tools to find new (additional) music.

After using this free music streaming tool, one might then decide to add some of their newly-discovered tracks, or albums to their main library which I’d assume would contain their full library of music. For example, my primary music library is offline, however, as of late I have found Spotify to be one of many ways to stream an album as soon as it is released. I might then later decide whether or not I’d like to pay up to actually own the physical album.
On a somewhat relevant note— I have to admit to still using Zune software’s Music Pass (which I think got re-branded to Xbox Music Pass), not because I am stuck in the past but because I find it convenient to have the music saved to a hard drive based mp3 player (same as using iTunes and having an iPod.) I prefer it to avoid having to rely solely on streaming which usually involves relying on a potentially unreliable WiFi signal or having to eat away at my cellphones monthly overall data usage that I’d rather use for other things. It all comes down to preference. My way is not the best way, it’s just one of many ways. Also, I still use my phone for music just not exclusively.
Verdict: The more uninterrupted and high quality my music experience is, the better.
(this is all assuming you don’t have unlimited data)
(p.s. I’m perpetually budgeting) (-_-’ ).
