Okay, fancy title to ask what's your balance of discovering new music versus enjoying shit you already know you like? I can say I get on kicks that last a few weeks, where I hardly listen to anything I've ever heard before. All completely new shit- be it listening to a whole album on youtube after seeing it recommended here, Pandora/Last.fm or just browsing metal blogs and tumblrs. Then I'll get on a similar kick for a while of listening to albums I've already discovered. Do you try to mix it up, does it go in phases, or maybe you'll listen to new acts when they come your way but maybe don't go looking for them?
