  3. #GroovesharkPresents Greenhouse Lounge: “Release” 

    Check out this #GroovesharkPresents music video collaboration with Greenhouse Lounge featuring their new track, “Release.”

    Greenhouse Lounge is an electronic musical trio that combines the computer based production of a DJ, accompanied by rock guitar leads, heavy synthesized bass and live drums. They are adept at merging these rumbling dub basslines with pumping electronica beats, breakbeat dynamics and staggering sample manipulation. Their music can be described as euphoric; a hypnotic based sound; tightly woven sonic soundscapes that are rich in melody and texture.

    Stay tuned for the launch of their new EP, “The Other Side,” coming to you exclusively on Grooveshark, September 2nd. Listen to Greenhouse lounge now on Grooveshark.

  9. Most of New York’s subway systems are going wireless, which is amazing because it means I can stream music while I commute. And what has made this development even better is Grooveshark’s new easier, mobile-sharing functionality that let’s me share the music I’m streaming, directly from my phone.

    Just click the song’s share button, copy the link & send to a friend. Voila!

    Many of us are hyper-connected these days to our mobile devices and our networks. Music itself is an entirely social entity – for me at least. Most songs in my playlists have a very specific person, mood or scenario associated with them. Streaming and sharing can keep memories alive and loved ones close, making this feature that much more important.

    What makes you want to share music? Do you have any songs in particular that really bring you back?
