1. Happy Hump Day, everyone! Our web team has been working their butts off trying to make Grooveshark the best site on the whole internets. Here’s what they achieved this week!


    IE-Related Fixes:

    • The ‘Cancel Subscription’ button works in IE7
    • IE8 runs in IE8 mode, which should increase performance significantly — like, playback should no longer stutter when you do intensive things like load big lists.

    Site Stuff:

    • Search results are improved!
    • Changing your queue size with music in the queue won’t lock the site up. 
    • Fixed the issue where stations and playlists would sometimes display all jumbled up in the sidebar.
    • The theme selector is now organized by category.
    • Search results are improved!
    • Artist page popularity sorting is fixed!
    • Playing an album from the site skin should always play in track order. WHOO!

    Oh, yeah, and the most awesome announcement of the day: We’re happy to announce that we’ve partnered up with Clearvoice Surveys to offer Grooveshark Surveys

    You may see a lil’ notification that informs you of the new program, but if you don’t, check out the Surveys option in your User Menu (you may need a magnifying glass to see it in this picture, haha).



    The Surveys page is currently offering the initial Profile Survey, which determines your eligibility for future surveys. New surveys will be released intermittently, and you’ll receive an e-mail informing you about their release. Once you take that first survey, you’ll be sent an e-mail asking for you to authorize your account. You’ll need to do that in order to receive any additional surveys going forward. When you finish a survey, you’ll earn points that you can collect and redeem for free months of Grooveshark Plus or Grooveshark Anywhere! So check it out. 

    If you have any questions, comments, concerns, or top 10 lists you’d like to share with us, drop us a line on the Twitter or Facebook. Rebekah and myself will be happy to say heyyyyy. 


  2. Seen our new HTML5 3D site theme yet? It’s the bee’s knees. If you haven’t made one of these faces today, you haven’t been sufficiently amazed! What are you waiting for?! Check it out here!

    If you were directed here from Grooveshark, we imagine that it’s because you didn’t receive your free 3-D Stereo Accessories in the mail. Sorry to hear that, we could’ve sworn you were on our mailing list.  Luckily, we’ve come up with a solution—below the jump.

New site skin on Grooveshark featuring one of our dear friends, who also happens to be a very talented musician - Dion Roy! We highly recommend you stream or purchase his new album, “Welcome Home”, as soon as possible. Also, stay tuned for some exclusive footage of Dion performing an acoustic set in our mobile recording studio during the Grooveshark Sessions @SXSW!

We are really excited over this one. Our Dear friends at Dangerbird Records just signed  Liam Gallagher’s new band “Beady Eye”. They sound awesome and the site theme on Grooveshark is pretty sick as well.


This is my second reblog of the Grooveshark Artists blog of the day—but this was too good for me to pass up.

  5. Our graphic designer James is out sick today, but he managed to wrap up the art for Grooveshark’s Valentine’s Day theme before he succumbed to the Panda Flu. He’s currently in bed with a stick of bamboo and a bowl of hot soup. Get well, James!

    And yes, your squinting eyes do not lie. For a limited time, if you purchase a pair of our stylish vinyl earrings, you’ll also get a year of Grooveshark Anywhere! 


  6. You guys know that we are working hard to fix the things that piss you off have been problematic in the new Grooveshark. A lot of updates have been made, but among them:

    • Anyone with a space in their password was unable to login because of the app wanting to take control of the spacebar for player controls can now, uh, login again. 
    • Scrobbling from Grooveshark has been updated to support the updates that Last.fm made recently to how music services (like us!) submit tunes you play over to your Last.fm account. 
    • A bug that forced users to log in immediately after signing up for a Grooveshark account is no more. 

    I should also mention that we’ve started a new release protocol for updates to Grooveshark, so it’ll be a lot easier for us to let you know exactly what’s been changed. Starting now!

    Oh, and while we were updating, we decided to throw up a nifty new holiday theme.

    Enjoy, and don’t forget to find some good holiday playlists!


  7. aowins asked: So glad I got a VIP subscription a while ago, best thing ever. I reinstalled my OS so all of my music from my hard drive is gone but I have GS (We cool if I call you guys that, ok) to fill in the void.. Looking forward to more cool themes, I've got the genie theme as of now!

    Thanks so much, aowins!  Cugini the Genie is one of my favorite themes, and I’m sorry to hear about your data loss.

    We’ll keep working if you keep grooving—and of course you can call me GS.

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!)
