UD on Spotify

Post  Blondegal on Tue Mar 17, 2009 7:44 pm

Don't know if you've heard of Spotify yet, but it's so so so cool, and so so legal.

http://www.spotify.com/en/

It's basically like Windows Media player vs a radio...... one that you are in control of. It has the very occasional advert (a music related one usually) for about 10 seconds, every 20 songs or something.

You can search for any song or band you like (most are uploaded, but the rare few are not).

In UD's case, it doesn't have every album yet, but it's got Journey and Bang for the Buck and a few singles.

You download a programme (which in my case took seconds) and you have to register and.... it's so so easy to use. It used to be invite only, and I'm not sure if it's available Stateside yet....

I'm loving it! Has anyone else got it?

Yeah a friend recommended it to me last month. Apparently though now that it's becoming more popular they might start curbing it because at the moment it's only every 30 mins there's an advert. I believe they're going to start increasing it now Sad

I used to use a site called Pandora which was dope, don't know if its still around.

You typed in a band you liked and it created a playlist from the type of music you like. Would play some really underground stuff i'd never heard before, pretty cool for finding new bands.
