A while ago I tried Last Sharp, a German downloader for Last.fm music; here’s another option according to gHacks, one which doesn’t require .Net runtimes.

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.

    Hey, all the main links to this site/file/app are down… except this one that I found…

    http://62.8.224.22/sz/get.php?file=LastFM.zip

    Feel free to scan it before running… but it’s the one that works.

    I like that you don’t have to install “LastFM Downloader”.
