OTBT = off the beaten trail? Well, being on music message boards helps an awful lot. I actually hear about a ton of stuff from the music message boards at gamefaqs.com, actually. Reading all the major music sites like pitchfork.com (even when they are infuriating, which is always) helps too. Lots and lots and lots of musical recommendations from friends. Social media. Etc.
I go see a lot of concerts. I'll ask the bands who they're listening to. Etc. Just keeping my ears open all the time. But message boards are the biggest thing, I think.
