New iPhone app is announced in partnership with 21 music blogs and magazines, with Songkick integration for live gig ticketing
LOST is a new app which allows fans to jump between different music experiences in one place – whether it’s reading about new music on blogs, adding that music to playlists or buying tickets to gigs. Users can listen to all the music and videos which these curators are talking about, all streamed as playlists and updated daily. LOST then matches each track to artists’ catalogues in Spotify and Apple Music.
The line-up of LOST’s official curators are: FACT, VICE’s music channels Noisey & Thump UK, Mahogany, UKF, i-D, The Line of Best Fit, Dummy, The 405, Complex UK, Clash Magazine, Data Transmission, Rockfeedback, Gold Flake Paint, The Ransom Note, Inverted Audio, Stamp the Wax, Hyponik, Harder Blogger Faster, Getintothis and Fortitude Magazine.
Users with music playlisted on SoundCloud, YouTube, Apple and Spotify can import them into their LOST collection, to keep all their music in one place and playlist everything they discover. The app aims to make it easier for the music that blogs and sites are talking about to make it into their collections, whilst connecting it back to the curators’ editorial. For live music fans, LOST has also partnered with independent artist-ticketing and live music discovery platform, Songkick to view tour dates and buy tickets directly from the app.
“Working together with our curators to bring their discerning voices to a new audience in LOST is truly exciting,” says LOST’s founder Crispin Futrille. “We want to put the music they’re talking about right at the heart of our users’ music collections.”
The LOST app can be downloaded free of charge for iPhone from the Apple App Store. To find out more, take a look at: lost.am
