Last.fm's Buggy, New Design
Thursday, July 17, 2008; 9:53 AM
Last.fm has a new look today that simplifies the navigation of the main site and makes finding music easier. Or at least, it would make finding music easier if the site wasn't so buggy. (At least for me. I couldn't even log in without getting an error. This may be due to fans rushing to check out the new features, or simply poor planning).
The new features a library of songs that you can now add to with a single click, instant recommendations based on the song you are listening to, and charts showing the popularity of each recommended song.
The site is now organized by music, videos, charts, and events. And for each song, there is increasingly the ability to play the entire song.
At the top of the page is a search bar, where you can enter a song or artist and hit play. That's very Songza of them.
