Our friends at the music recommendation site Goombah tell us they have partnered with Napster, making it easier to hear the songs they recommend. That has been the main problem with these services—iLike, Qloud, MyStands, etc. Users are routed to vendor sites (generally iTunes or Amazon) to hear short preview clips of a song. With Napster tied in, Goombah users can stream recommendations or song from a users’ library that Napster has. Sounds great, so long as Napster stays in business.

On another note, we finally checked out Goombah’s Free Music list—which can be downloaded and shared with their new widget—and were pleasantly surprised to see the likes of Andrew Bird, Arcade Fire, Boy Least Likely To, and CocoRosie among others… Finally something free that isn’t crap.
