    I prefer last.fm and forums when it comes to discovering bands. Never had much luck with youtube.

    For me it has been more of a re-discovery. The quality of recordings and production in the past was at times astounding.

    Well, I discovered them via TalkBass, but it was on a link to a YouTube video for I Draw Slow.

    the first time i saw this it changed me in a deep, and profound way.

    my god!

    i've since bought all of their records (with or without reed mathis on bass) and seen them play almost a dozen times.

    i dont know what else i discovered there, but its a great way to look into people you think you might like. i tell students all the time to search this or that on youtube and tell me what they think.... its a great tool.

    Brazilian Girls!
    Doing Jesse Murphy research from his UberJam days with John Scofield. Great stuff. Tasty bass lines, good beats, sexy vocals, good times!


    Animals as Leaders
    Everything I love about heavy music minus the typically crappy vocals!


    Both bands are humble too. Makes me appreciate them even more.

    I also "discovered" Jonas Hellborg via internets over a decade ago, so I guess he counts too.

    Two bands I mention all the time on TB...

    Walk off the Earth- Canadian band that specializes in covers, but has some killer originals as well. Discovered them when the "Five People One Guitar" cover of Gotye's "Somebody That I Used To Know" went viral. Started looking at all their other videos after that, and realized what a talented bunch they are. Gained a huge Internet following and is now signed to a record label...haven't seen them live, but it's on my list.

    Tally Hall- Michigan based band that plays indie/rock originals. Officially discovered them through Left Handed Toons (Drew, one of the artists, is a Michigan native, and friends with the band), but took it upon myself to look them up on Youtube. They gained a pretty big following through their silly music videos and skits. Saw them live in D.C...excellent band.

    I fist discovered this Don Caballero tune on YouTube based on a stranger's recommendation on a music forum

    Blew my mind almost instantly. I went out and bought their entire catalog on CD!
