Or is it well beyond my means?
And what the living fuck is it exactly?
you just search for it and it instantly streams, you can share playlists, bit different to last.fm probably easier to use, doesnt have enough music on it yet though
God's not a fan of The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Animal Collective or Why? though.
You can also tell it to scrobble your plays so they register on your Last.fm account.
spotify is a bit like last.fm (though not a replacement IMO), pandora, hype machine and muxtape. you can listen to artists, artist radio stations (similar stuff), listen to and share playlists. only annoying things i have found so far: they don't always have the particular artist you search for and if you listen to the radio it plays adverts - well one about every 7 or so songs.
Ta folks. Is there an iPhone app for it yet, or is it still early days?
When that happenes the world may just implode.
probably jizz my self to death
just go here: https://www.spotify.com/en/get-started/
it's pretty spiffy, especially when using it at work (ie. somewhere without your musical collection). strangely my work pc won't let me install the last.fm scrobbler but somehow lets me install spotify. huh?
plus it loads quicker than my cumbersome itunes on the shitty laptop too. win.
its got better now
is that it lets you listen to stuff you are curious about but deemed not worth downloading for free, for example the last smashing pumpkins album I reret listening
yet never seem to use it.
And listening to that ATP Fans playlist radio thingy. Good stuff...
although I don't have any sort of a good reason why.
You won't regret it at all...
why it is better than just using last.fm yet? if so, please do.
they're not really comparable to me. Last.FM is great as a recommendations device, finding people with similar taste, keeping up with events.
Spotify is like having the biggest music playlist imaginable, but doesn't really work as a recommendations pusher. If you use them both hand in hand, they're clearly brilliant. It's what I've wanted record companies to do for years.
