For a few days now I’ve been hearing a buzz about an online music service called Spotify from online friends. I finally got round to checking it out last night (click on the “Free” button after following that link to sign up) and, so far, am very impressed.
It gives access to a large catalogue of music that can be listened to over the Internet. It seems to have a much wider range of tracks than Last.FM, which has been first source for listening to streaming music in recent months. Rather than try to replace Last.FM, Spotify sits alongside it for situations when you want to hear a particular artist, album or track; it even scrobbles the music to your Last.FM profile (see mine). I’m impressed.
Time to go and cook dinner… but I’ll leave the Internet playing!
