Yeah good music cannot be found on the radio it is all the same pre packaged crap . Progressive metal has a nice underground scene , honestly probably the last place right now to find any virtuosos of their instruments.

1) Independent artists who give their music for free while accepting donations. And they will sell hard copies for lower than industry standard prices.
2) Video game scores/soundtracks.
Honestly video games are where the real music is at these days, in the category of corporate produced music at least. It's creative, made to fit the scenery/action, very versatile and has no real limitations to what is allowed.
On youtube it is a sort of underground phenomena that many will post VG OSTs for everyone to have the pleasure of listening.
Sure not all games have good soundtracks, but many of them have put out absolutely astonishing works of art that will go down in the books of history as pushing musical art forward in many varied directions.
