Bandcamp and Spotify. I used to use Last.fm as a discovery/recommendations engine but I think Spotify has surpassed it.
Bandcamp, Needle Drop, Resident Advisor, Fader and Factmag. Also sometimes clicking on related links within a YT video would expose me to similar artists that I find myself enjoying. But it can be all very time consuming, so I just set some time in the week to check out feed alerts from the ones mentioned above.
Added the playlist.
As far as how I find music: I check the new releases every week and basically skim through everything until something catches my ear. Other than that it’s suggestion algorithms, word of mouth, and a few blogs I follow.
I spend a lot of my free time listening to music.

I am still a bit in the 70’s and for a big chunk in the 90’s, a few days a month in the 80’s,
gonna stay a little longer there. Liking it.
Finding new music mainly on YT, but it does not mean it’s a new release. Just new to my ears.
This might change as I ordered a first Sonos streaming device.
My wife still buys CD’s, she likes the format whilst driving mostly.
I still buy records sometimes, but just lucky flea market style shots. Same with cassettes. It"s just too much fun to put in a tapedeck an watch it spin, feeling 13 again also helps
