New music-playing website.

I just came across a website called Spotify.

It's a pretty simple idea - they have oodles of music (check the list of labels signed up!) that you can search and play in any order, for free.

All you have to put up is a 30-second advert break every 20 minutes (instead of every 12-14 minutes on commercial radio).

If you don't want to put up with the adverts, you can pay for an advert-free day (99p) or month (9.99).

I've only been using it for a hour or so, but I'm having fun listening to a mixed bag of Duffy and Jehtro Tull tracks.

Woo.... Can you download from the site?

Not officially (you'd be getting around their advertising revenue), but I don't know if anybody has had time to hack it yet.

A quick experiment with Audacity reveals it is recordable though!
Lol, you little Audacity junkie, you'd find a way around everything as long as you put your mind to it.

. "Not available in your country yet" (US) :(

Odd - the site apparently has 250,000 UK members, and another 550,000 world-wide. I guess there are licensing problems in the US. That would explain why Spain and German are the biggest joiners so far...
. From their why-not-available page: "Unfortunately, due to licensing restrictions we are not yet available in your country. We understand that you are currently in United States..."
