Coda.fm, launched!

Saw a post on TorrentFreak about the newly launched Coda.fm today. It has since then been Digged and and is now flying through the ranks, currently at 818 Diggs. I think it’s right that Coda.fm gets a bit of blogging attention, it’s a fantastic service embedded in a neat Web 2.0 package. With easy navigation and overview, it’s all about putting the user in focus.

Great work!

A quick search on Google brings about roughly 600,000 results, most of it reviews and comments from users of social media/social bookmarking sites and tech blogs. It’ll be interesting to follow.

Spotify now scrobbles, awesome!

Being a super fan of Spotify and a huge fan of Last.fm, I must say I was really pleased when I noticed that Spotify now offers its users to scrobble through Last.fm! It’s been more or less ‘wanted’ (more like demanded) by the Spotify-community since day 1, which makes this an even bigger success for Spotify – they listened to the users – and gave them exactly what they wanted.

Now, please take it to the next level and develop an iPhone application guys, that’d just make my day completely.

Hypem/SoundCloud

I just wrote about Spotify the other day. Reading about Spotify and its benefits took me to a lot of other places that focused on connecting or helping people unite their common interest, namely music.

The other day SoundCloud had their release. On the site reads that: “SoundCloud lets you move music fast & easy. The platform takes the daily hassle out of receiving, sending & distributing music for artists, record labels & other music professionals.” I’m not sure that this has been as big of an issue as they’d like to emphasize, but it will be interesting to see what comes out of it. Check out the video on the front page, quite cool.

Another service that I stumbled upon the other day is Hypem which really caught my attention. I normally stick to more ‘common’ resources for my music online, such as Last.fm or longer back; Pandora. But Hypem or “The Hype Machine” is really really clever and self-driven by thousands of bloggers. It collects data and music from blogs around the world and then presents it on the site with a clean interface and the possibility to listen to new blogged music in a pop-up player, even though the player at the bottom is sweet enough. If you want to see what music is the ‘buzz’ around the world, Hypem is really a one stop shop to get updated.
