Grooveshark Artists, get ready to woot! We’ve teamed up with ONErpm to become a part of the #LeaveNoArtistBehind Campaign.

Up-and-coming and set to perform during SXSW this year, Max Frost, the native Austinite singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist is nothing less than a musical chameleon. Frost dances the line between blues, hip-hop, pop, and soul effortlessly and with obvious skill, so much so that I’ve almost forgotten that these genre distinctions ever existed in the first place.
2 English. Indie-rock band from Mobile, AL with an awesome new album!
The indie rock trio, El Cantador, kicked off the new year with the release of their album Translation Wave. Showcasing an evolved new sound, fans of their last records on 2011’s Fools for Light will be surprised to find the band shelving the synthesizers and dance-driven melodies for a more acoustic based sound. Regardless of their new style, we are loving every last song on this album. Check out this Off the Avenue video for the song “Particle and Wave.”
In addition to being a platform for all of your on-demand music, Grooveshark works hard to help independent artists grow and develop their audience through our platform. TechDirt featured a Grooveshark case study on the work we’ve done with our friends, Quiet Company. Whether you are looking at the exponential growth in YouTube video views, or the incredible global reach of the band, Grooveshark is really happy to see these Austin natives sharing their music and their sound with the world.

If you don’t already know, Flutter is this cool new app that allows you to control your Grooveshark music using just your webcam. I just found out that it works just as good for panda hands as it does for human hands!
While hardcore trivia nerds may recognize the term NORDO as an in-flight aircraft without a radio, the Boston Globe, The Phoenix, and news outlets around the nation are recognizing NORDO as the hot new album from the band, Air Traffic Controller. The album’s stand-out track “You Know Me,” has soared to the top of the Hype Machine in 2012 and the Grooveshark team is happy to present their new video to our Sharks. Enjoy “You Know Me” by ATC here on the Grooveshark Blog!
