The ‘plus’ sign in the player is your gateway to Last.fm’s content and recommendations, all generated via the listening habits of its users. Whether you want to listen to a station based on legendary artists like [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Nirvana[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Jimi Hendrix[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Incubus[/lastfm], or [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]The Beatles[/lastfm], or your favorite lesser-known underground artist ([lastfm link_type="artist_info"]The Feelies[/lastfm], anyone?), Last.fm and Radio.com have the station for you.
The streaming experience pulls in photos, biographical information and charts from Last.fm, for an enriched listening experience. As you can see in the screenshots above and below, you can also Love, Ban, Share, or Buy tracks.
Best of all, the little ‘as’ (audioscrobbler) sign at the top, just to the left of the share button and the star? That enables you to start scrobbling, and thereby contributing to the stats and facts that Last.fm Trends showcases every day.
