Listen/Download counters broken

As some FMAers have noticed, the per-track, per-album, and per-playlist listen and download counts have not been updated for several days.  We are aware of the issue and are trying to correct it.  None of the download or listen data has been lost, but there is a large backlog that our statistics engine is struggling to keep up with.  I will be optimizing the statistics system and returning the counters to normal as soon as possible, hopefully by the end of the week.

API Keys and Android Apps

Hello!  I have a couple of news items!

API KEYS - To better manage our costs and to curtail some abusive behavior, we are no longer allowing users to generate their own API keys.  If you would like an API Key, please visit the API Docs and follow the directions there. If you are interested in using the FMA for Machine Learning, Music Information Retrieval, other research, or if you simply want a way to acquire most of the FMA's collection, please see the dataset prepared by Michaël Defferrard et al.

ANDROID APP - There is an updated version of our official Android app in the Play Store.  If you are a regular user of our Android app, please upgrade as soon as you can.

Hi @nrclark - I was hoping to record today's show for that purpose, but I ran into some problems with my setup. I'll work out the kinks by next week. Thanks for your interest!

If wishes and buts were clusters of nuts, we'd all have a bowl of granola.
