Last.fm Downloader (via Life Rocks) is a free portable software program for Windows. To download your favorite music from Last.fm (and also Aupeo), just enter the Last.fm/Aupeo url and press ‘Start’. No user account or login is required.
You can download music from similar Last.fm artists by using for example an url like “www.last.fm/listen/artist/Nas/similarartists” or music with the same tag (something like “www.last.fm/listen/globaltags/rap“).
All downloaded files are named “Artist – Title.mp3” and saved in the “Downloaded Files” subfolder. If you check the ‘Deep folder layout’ option, the files are stored as “\Artist\Album\Artist – Title.mp3”. ID3 tags are automatically generated. Even the cover images can be downloaded.
Settings make it possible to change the download location of the music files, to define a maximum size limit or download file count limit, to start an external application if a limit is reached and whether to download cover art and make use of a deep folder layout while downloading.
Downloads are not always smooth though – which has to be accepted given that website databases like the Last.fm one are not created for music downloads.
