I've just realised that I missed 3 important album releases this year.

Soundamus.net has been down for months.
albumreminder.com is very limited.
Google Alerts isn't specific enough.

How do you do it? Especially if the bands are not mainstream?

Thanks.

I suppose you could subscribe to the artist's Twitter feed for the latest updates.

musicbee itself uses musicbrainz in the Upcoming Releases service. However i would expect its not great for obscure bands

For bands I really care about, I have an email address that collects band email newsletters. I also follow some bands on Facebook.
Bold words in my posts are links unless expressly stated otherwise.

Discogs, though that only works for artists you already have in your collection and if somebody actually submits a new entry.

I go to Encyclopaedia Metallum, select last month in advanced search and browse through what pops up. Just a few minutes each month to be up to date.
