1. Have you ever wondered just what Grooveshark can do for an artist? Here’s an excerpt from a really awesome article on Sinizine that breaks down some of the many things we can provide artists and their management team.

    Within artist.grooveshark.com, artists can create an account and upload music and artwork.  After the songs and artwork have been verified the music will be stream-able in a few days (I’ve had it appear as quick as 24hours).  From here you can keep tabs on play analytics such as total plays, which songs are getting played most and which songs are being included in other Grooveshark users’ playlists.  All of this is great data to monitor; for instance, when you release a new track from an upcoming album or perhaps trying to determine your next set list for tour.”


    As of this date, there are no other platforms offering stream-able music for free or at a small rate that’s working for the artist, except Grooveshark.  I’ve heard they’re in beta for a few more extremely powerful analytical tools and I hope soon they will be able to push through the iTunes and the Android market.  If you are an artist or manger and have yet to upload your music to their system, I strongly encourage you to do so.  The social sharing options the platform provides are seamless and playable across the Facebook platform.  If you’re just an average fan of music looking for a new way to acquire it, again I highly recommend Grooveshark.  Compared to Spotify the overall layout is more visually aesthetic and customizable.  Finding songs and albums are simple and your account can be accessed anywhere there is a computer, where as Spotify is a stand alone application that must be downloaded.  Check out the website at: www.grooveshark.com and start uploading your music at artist.grooveshark.com

  2. We’ve stumbled upon this cool new site, Grooveshark Playlists, that is solely dedicated to finding and sharing playlists.

    You can register as a user and upload your own playlists- or you can simply search and browse the ones that are listed and download or play what you’re interested in.

    Check out some of the current playlists that users have uploaded below- you can browse the playlists by genre, or search for your favorite artist or playlist.

    So, if you’re ever on the hunt for new music or playlists but you don’t know where to look, you can check out Grooveshark Playlists and see if anything is up your music alley.

  4. We’re super happy about our latest theme, featuring of Montreal. You can check out all of Montreal’s latest EP, thecontrollersphere, on Grooveshark!

  5. This is something we’re really excited about. As you may have seen yesterday, Grooveshark and the Black Lips have teamed up to give you a pre-release stream of the awesome new Black Lips album, Arabia Mountain. This is the 6th full-length album by the Black Lips (one of our favorites).

    Check it out before the album’s release on June 7! Also be sure to pre-order the album, or the deluxe edition, while you’re listening.  And while you’re enjoying, check out the tour coming up (hopefully) to a venue near you.

  7. So, this guy Blaise. I work with him. He is super-passionate about promoting musicians, helping people get heard, and making banana bread. But mostly promoting musicians! Which is why he made a cool way to get free promotion for your music on Grooveshark. This will show you how!

New Hot Chip theme just went live! Here’s what’s sweet: even if you don’t know anything about DJing, you can “remix” the song via MXP4 - check it out.
Thoughts on the theme?

More artist themes for awesome bands. Yes.  (Shout-out to @Workerman for designing it!)
