When I started using last.fm 4 1/2 years ago, I was intrigued with the idea of automatically tracking the music that I was listening to. As I listened to more and more songs, the recommendations started getting better and I discovered a lot of music that I would never have found before. Bands like Lali Puna, The Fiery Furnaces, Tender Forever, Mates of State, The Blow, Asobi Seksu, and Anaïs. 4 years ago
Entries from everyone
and I have discovered some pretty cool music. The artists that stand out for me are:
Tegan and Sara
The Click Five
The Click Five are my favourite from that list, though. I just need to find out where I can get their stuff in the UK. :)
I need to start using it more regularly again, I’ve been listening to my Itunes a lot. 4 years ago
Noisettes, Scout Niblett, El Perro del Mar, Figurines, Yann Tiersen, Beirut, Regina Spektor, Kimya Dawson, Dead Can Dance, Rasputina, Marble, The Long Blondes, Annie Gosfield, Suffrajett, The Slack Republic, The BellRays, The Themals, Switchblade Symphony, The Gossip, Bloc Party, Emilie Autumn, TV on the Radio, Corinne Bailey Rae, Sneaky Sound System, The Go!

Last.fm rocks! So much better than listening to crappy ad-infested radio stations that play the same ten songs over and over all day long and have announcers whose voices make you want to go and put your hand in between the blades of a blender.
Plus you can choose what kind of music you want: “chilling”, “electro”, “grunge” or a mix of anything and just go from there.
I’d say that at the moment it has re-connected me with old music I had forgotten about more than discovered new good stuff, but it’s definitely given me ideas for fresh tunes to put on my iPod.
It’s now officially my preferred musical entertainment when stuck in front of the computer for hours on end. Within the space of one short week, I now don’t know what I’d do without it! 5 years ago
I keep forgetting to listen to the recommendation radio, but every time I do I seem to find new music that that I like. My most recent discovery is the duo Mates of State who have a simple sound with drums and organ and a male and female voice. 5 years ago
I listened to my recommendation radio from last.fm on the weekend and discovered a Glaswegian band, Camera Obscura that I hadn’t heard before and I quite like them.
I’ve been using last.fm for about 2 1/2 years now and after submitting many tracks and listening to a lot of music some of the recommendations are pretty good. 6 years ago
...finally make that long overdue mix tape (meaning a cd) for mi hermano filled with lots of good vibes. 6 years ago
Sure I discover music, but it’s more a rediscovery of music I already know, so I give up!. 6 years ago
