First I am listening to Vinyl Records a lot, and vinyl doesn't scobble. Second when online I often listen to music on sellaband and jamendo.
My discoveries on sellaband include Selen , Julia Marcell, Lucia Iman and many more (see my profile for a complete list).
I just love the idea of enabling artists to go recording and produce music. Most parts I buy because I am really interested in receiving an album of this artists (So I'm a amateur and not an investor).
