Last.fm offers 'huge independent library' via new app

From Newgrass to Indietronica, Last.fm Discover allows users to make their own independent music discoveries, providing access to a range of music genres, free of charge and without commercials.

Sponsored by Microsoft's Internet Explorer 9, the new app sits within Last.fm and will also allow unlimited skips, listens and the creation of mini mixtapes of newly discovered music, which can then be shared.

"Our team has grappled over the years on how to best overcome the barriers of discovering new music, whether it be finding new artists from around the globe, downloading tracks or sharing with friends. Last.fm Discover solves this problem," said VP of Product at Last.fm Matthew Hawn.

"By working with the Microsoft innovation team we're able to bring a huge library of independent music to new audiences. We want people to discover, listen and share new music and Last.fm Discover gives a new and engaging way of doing just that."

"We're always looking for new and outstanding ways to bring fantastic HTML5 experiences to Internet Explorer 9 users, and this new site from Last.FM will not disappoint," said Internet Explorer lead in the UK Gabby Hegerty.

"With Internet Explorer 9, websites feel much more like a native Windows application, where the focus is on the site, and in this case discoverability of great music, rather than the browser."
