Music Downloader of Choice?


Hey all, just wondering what others are using to find and find and download new music. I'm also curious to know of other alternatives to Nicotine+, which I've been using for a little while.

I've recently found a nice little widget called Seesu, which is great so far. It lets you search up bands and listen to their songs, and you can download the .mp3 for free afterwards if you like it. Anyway, enough of my pseudo-advertising. =p

What do you all do to find new music? Are torrent clients like Vuze the way to go, or is software like Nicotine+ better suited for the job? Perhaps you prefer the way of sites like Bandcamp, or by downloading from various online music stores. In any event, it'd be interesting to see how you all go about building onto your playlists.

Youtube for finding music. If I decide I want a high-quality copy, I'll probably buy the CD, either from Amazon or from a bricks-and-mortar store.

I try to buy as many CDs as possible, but some artists I listen to are not well-known enough to have hard copies of their stuff.
I make a point to buy at least one official album (be it a CD or digital download) from each artist I like.
