I research all over the internet, mostly forums of certain genre of music
for example: Progressive music I will go here: http://www.seaoftranquility.org/index.php read reviews then check out the bands Myspace site or whatever site they have up, then maybe if their music is on Amazon I'll check out the samples. I do this with most genre's of music.

You find new music by poking around. I was at a thrift shop one day and found a cassette called "the changer and the changed" 1975. It was awesome!
The other day found a record called "hurtwood edge" 1972. Excellent music! Just poke around......
bandcamp, last.fm and spotify are pretty awesome ways of finding new music!
grooveshark is pretty cool too!
I use Rhapsody (been a subscriber for 5+ years), and Rolling Stones. I'm not renewing Rolling Stones though.... my subscription runs out in November.
Mainly not renewing because it caters to a younger audience.
Listed source material used in hifi equipment and speaker reviews has opened me up to a lot of stuff I would otherwise never have heard.
