Welcome to Sites that Scrobble to Last.fm (formerly The Matchedd)
This group is dedicated to find new sources of legal music that scrobble to Last.fm, this is not the place to find or place links to illegal ones. Please don't place links to them either in the shoutbox, threads or as a comment since I don't want to get banned. Any link/post/comment that does will be deleted and the member will be kicked. Artists who want to promote themselves, please don't put links to your music here since there are other (and much bigger) groups out there to do that.
Despite the continual legal pursuit of music file-sharing "criminals" by the RIAA, the ability to find great music and create a significant music library on Last.fm at virtually no cost is still quite feasible. So we'll start by dividing this into categories and giving a few examples of what we know. But it's up to you to fill in the blanks.
Paid sources or premium subscriber features
The list is build on the assumption that you don't want to pay to listen to music. This means that if the source has options for premium (i.e. paid) accounts those will not be mentioned in the review. This is also the reason why the following sites will not be added to the list: Rdio, Rhapsody, MOG and Napster.
A number of the sites in this list do not directly support scrobbling to your Last.fm-profile, some workarounds are:
- The Universal Scrobbler use it to manually scrobble tracks to your play history.
- If you use Firefox you can install LastFM Firefox Extension to get tracks on Slacker, Pandora, Deezer and AccuRadio scrobbled to Last.fm.
- Another solution is to have an account on Like.fm to scrobble tracks there and on: Youtube, Pandora, Grooveshark and Meemix.
- Scroblr.fm (Chrome/Safari-extension) scrobbles: Pandora, Grooveshark, Google Music Beta, Amazon Cloud Player, Turntable.fm, Bandcamp, Accuradio, Jango and We7
One time solutions for specific sources are mentioned on that site's-blurb.
What's different from the previous group?
The main overview here will only contain a list of sites that scrobble streaming music to Last.fm. If you want the complete list of all the other ones (including those where you can only download free music) you can find them on this Wikia-page. There are also threads in this group with the different lists, head over to the discussions to see whether your favourite is included.

Blip.fm A blip is a combination of 1) a song and 2) a short message that accompanies it. The way you create a blip is to first search for a song that you want to hear (or a song that you want your listeners to hear), then add a short message (under 150 characters), finally you submit it. Submitting a blip is also referred to as “blipping”, so from here on out, when you read “he blipped my favorite track” it means “he submitted a blip that had my favorite song attached”.

DJs upload MP3s or AACs to craft a playlist, add context with description and art, and publish their mix on 8tracks.com and a personal webpage.
8tracks believes handcrafted music programming trumps algorithms. Think radio in the 1970s, mixtapes in the 1980s, and DJ culture of the 1990s through today.
