as much as i like to listen to my "old" favourites nothing beats the feeling when you "discover" great "new" album...

I've been listening to Pandora for a bit, and finding lots of new artists producing music that appeals to me.  Good resource for exploring, though sound quality leaves a lot to be desired.

 

 I've found I can't listen to much of the rock I grew up with anymore.  Just tired of it I guess.

 

Put me in the new music camp in this poll.

New music, mostly. I wish I could go back and listen to some albums for the first time again. I love that.

There's great new stuff and great old stuff. I like discovering new things and listening to favorites. Sometimes I "discover" stuff I'd forgotten I had.

Ditto.  I'm open to new music as much as the next guy, but there are plenty of things from the past that I've missed and have discovered later in life.  I find music from decades past more satisfying to listen to.  A perfect example is Camel.  I've heard of the group years ago, but never really got into their music until recently.  Great stuff.

I haven't voted yet, and though my reflex is to go with "new", as it's explained hear I would probably go with "familiar". I'd like to be discovering great music all the time, and I feel like once you've found something cool, living with it—turning it into something "familiar"— is the reward.

True.

But once you've turned it into something "familiar," how often to you find enjoyment in it by revisiting it again? That's what the third option pertains to.

If you seldom revisit those records you've discovered and familiarized yourself with, and instead still spend more time discovering new music, and derive more enjoyment from that... Then that pertains to either of the first two options depending on if what you're listening to is new or old music.

Well, I'd say it's probably a mood thing. Right this second I'm listening to The Complete Aladdin Recordings of Lester Young…sort of morning coffee music for me. But the two things I've had on the most recently have been that bad-ass new Wild Flag disc and a solo-piano thing by a newcomer named Kris Davis. Gettin' quite familiar with both of them.L3000.gif

Funny…I just looked back at my last post (from a few days ago) in the "What Are You Listening To Right Now" thread. It was Wire's Pink Flag (old music I'm very familiar with) and a new compilation of '70s music by the Colombian bandleader Michi Sarmiento (old music I'm becoming familiar with; it was just released this year and I'd never heard much of it before this comp).
