These guys are in the summer batch of the http://ignite.io accelerator and launching soon. Seems to essentially combine Shazam with Spotify.

Currently available only for Costa Rica, it should be powered by Youtube, Soundcloud, Spotify and Deezer. Will be interesting to see how they intend to integrate merch, tickets, and music store with the streaming service. Anyhow gotta love the ticos :)

@daualset thanks for the shout Claudio - we will be opening up the beta a bit more in the next couple of weeks and have more people help us get this ready for prime time

Love the idea of providing streaming music for free and monetizing elsewhere. After that, it comes down to how big their selection of music is.
Claudio Gallo@daualset · @shazam
@lee94josh Maybe @samiq can tell us some more.
Gilbert CorralesMaker@samiq · CEO, Leaf.fm
Thanks @daualset :) ... @lee94josh yeah, so what we are doing is that we are leveraging content from different sources and letting artists claim their profile and take over from there. So content wise is already quite encompassing bringing content from YouTube, Soundcloud, Spotify, Deezer and such, we are connecting with iTunes first and on top of that bands are already curating their stores. What we want is to give bands an alternative approach where they can monetize digitally in a more similar way than they do in the physical world.
