I hated the new cloud players...HATED them. Not the normal hatred but the kind where you actually want to set them on fire. The reason? No scrobbling and poor tag handling. I will fight to the death for the tracks I've scrobbled. I've found more new music based on my listening habits in these past 6 years (in Feb 2012) I've been a member than I could ever hope to find on Spotify or Pandora. I had a brief flirtation with both of those services and quickly came back to last.fm. Not only is it the most affordable way to stream music, it is also THE BEST for finding new music.

Thanks to Daniel Slaughter and Greasemonkey for Firefox, I am able to scrobble music via Google music and my happiness level has skyrocketed while hatred level has plummeted. Books of matches back to the top drawer and gasoline back in the shed.

So what have I been listening to since I have these great tools at my fingertips? Loch Lomond is a band I found recently and I'm loving both of their albums...I listen to Wax and Wire at the minimum twice per day.

The other is a band that hasn't released an album yet. San Cisco is pretty amazing especially the song Awkward which is so catchy it will get stuck inside your head.

I'd have never found either of these bands without Last.fm and I definitely wouldn't be listening to them on any cloud player if it didn't scrobble. We're entering into an odd time for online music...there are so many ways in which one can stream and find music online...and with last.fm, I find bands that don't have a marketing department behind them that make better music than the stuff radio stations try to force feed to me. I'm thankful for last.fm.
