New Groovebug Feature: White Denim
Steve Terebecki, Austin Jenkins, James Petralli and Josh Block combine to form one of the most buzzworthy up-and-coming rock acts on the touring circuit. White Denim have been tearing up live shows with their blend of pure energy and technicality that has earned them the title of “best rock band at SXSW” for four consecutive years. “Shake Shake Shake” captures the heat of...
New Groovebug Feature: Psalm One
What do chemistry and music have in common? Probably very little (unless you’re like me and had certain songs to cry to after failing a chemistry exam.) This week’s featured artist, however, has a bit of a deeper connection to both fields. Psalm One was a chemistry major at University of Illinois- Urbana Champaign when she recorded her deput LP Bio: Chemistry. In fact, she initially pursued...
Groovebug Top 100 November 17 - 23
Not surprisingly, all of us here at Groovebug are music junkies. Like any group of true music junkies, our tastes vary quite a bit. We are very pleased to see that our users are just as diverse. Many of the artists in the Groovebug Top 100 are also in the pop charts. This isn’t surprising as the Groovebug Top 100 ranks artsits by popularity. What IS interesting is the diversity of the...

New Groovebug Feature: Emil & Friends
True or False: Emil & Friends is the band of actor Emil Hirsh. FALSE. True or False: Emil Hewitt, the real Emil behind the music, created the rumor in an effort to get his music heard. TRUE. Personally, we respect anyone who can successfully fake being Emil Hirsh. The real Emil is a self-classified “weird pop” musician. He spent quite a few years as an elusive artist who would periodically...
New Groovebug Feature: Passafire
While Reggae-Rock may make you think of guys with dreadlocks shredding the guitar, Passafire has created a unique sound that defies stereotypes of both Reggae and Rock. Playing over 150 shows a year, Passafire brings the concept of life in the fast lane to a whole new level. The band is literally in a new city every day. Passafire formed in 2003 while the members were students attending Savannah...

Groovebug's Weekly Top 100
While we were anxious to share the data from our first week, we are even more enthusiastic to see that our featured artists are movin’ on up. For the week of 10/27-11/02 our #1 most viewed artist was featured artist Fitz & The Tantrums. Seeing our featured artists jump almost 400 spots to beat out the likes of Adele, Coldplay, and The Biebs makes us even more excited about continuing...

New! Groovebug's Weekly Top 100
With great power comes great responsibility, and with great apps comes great trackability. Sorry to sound stalkerish, but we here at Groovebug love getting to see the data on the artists our users explore the most. Here’s the list from our first week: Deadboy Adele Derrick Carter Arcade Fire Justin Bieber Coldplay Maroon 5 2Pac Cajmere Nirvana The Notorious B.I.G. ...
New Groovebug Feature: The Suzan
Konnichiwa, amigos. Up this week on Groovebug is an act that describes themselves as “four girls from Tokyo.” To the point, ne? The Suzan twists a classic popular sound with their bubbly personalities and dancey sound. As one commentator put it, their music will make you want to move to Japan. This first song “Come Come” is live footage taken from the Japan society of...
New Groovebug Feature: NewVillager
Most musicians are considered artists but NewVillager is actually an artist collective as opposed to a band. Member’s Ben Bromley and Ross Simonini make new pop music as a means of illustrating the NewVillager mythology (yes, they have a mythology). They describe their mythos as, “not a story, but a lens to look at the world. It’s a ten-part framework of understanding the process of change. How...
New Groovebug Feature: Dominique Young Unique
We all want to find the next big thing because it makes us feel kind of cool. You can be all like “I was listening to Florence & The Machine before she even had an album out. I found her on some cool hip underground blog.” Not that those words have come out of my mouth. On that note, we here at Groovebug are pretty confident we’ve found the next big thing and it is this week’s featured...
New Groovebug Feature: Teddybears
Daft Punk wears robot costumes. Deadmau5 wears a mouse’s head. When we came across Teddybears, a hot new electric group with a big old bear heads on at all times, we didn’t ask any questions. With the peculiar look comes a great new sound that is upbeat, smile-worthy and all the while electro. You probably like feeling good. Right? Right. Well there’s a great genre-hybrid...

New Groovebug Feature: A-Trak
If you’ve ever applied for work, you’ve probably listed a few personal achievements. The odds that they included a) being taken on tour with Kanye while in college AND b) getting covered on Glee and X-factor AND c) being a turn table prodigy since the teen years, however, are probably pretty low. Still, that’s the cool suite of stories that popular DJ A-Trak can boast. Between...
New Groovebug Feature: NERVO
The duo NERVO, made up of a couple of sisters Nervo, puts out house music like the best of them. Liv and Mim turn tracks into “danceable gold” while keeping things cheerful and catchy. These girls remind us that Australia is distinct from Europe, but still able to get ‘euro’ all over. First is a star-studded video showing off some of those connections NERVO has out in the...
New Groovebug Feature: Black Lips
There are flowers and there is punk, but our next featured band, the Black Lips, marries the two in an unlikely union. This self appointed “flower punk” band combines elements of blues, rock, doo-wop, country, and punk to create a hard yet accessible sound. The band was known early on for their crazy stage antics and even crazier recording strategies. For example, their first album for Vice...
