Last.FM to Charge €3/month for Radio Service

I really do have impeccable timing. Right after posting about Daydream Cycle’s first album being available on Last.FM, the site announces that they will no longer allow users outside the US, UK, or Germany to use their radio services without paying €3 a month. Pandora has already shunned non-US consumers, now that Last.FM is out as well, where are we supposed to find new music?

Addendum: Free downloads and 30-second previews are still available according to the comments on the link above. It’s the artist/user/group recommendation radios that are disabled (which basically still neuters the service for us). Someone should use the Last.FM recommendation data/API and aggregate music to play user recommendations.
