The way it works is this: You can upload your favourite music of the moment (12 songs, I think?), and the site will host them. People can't download from it, so it's legal; they have the option to buy the MP3s from the site, which is cool. (Of course, legano, ni legano... I'll send you a song if you ask nicely.) And in the meantime, all you have to do is click on a track on someone else's Tape, and you get to hear the whole song, crystal clear (unlike Last.FM or Facebook's iLike, for example, where you only usually get 30 seconds of a track).
I'll be changing the selections later today, most likely, so do let me know if there's something you'd like. And if you happen to have one of your own (or are inspired to make one 'cos cool people like me and Sephorah are doing it), link me to it! I like seeing what people are listening to these days. It says a lot about someone.
