    The landing page boasts a search function, featured artists, chart listings and has a now playing bar in the bottom of the page. From the brief video teaser, it appears that users can play albums just by clicking on the album cover.

    At a cursory glance, the service appears to have taken several design cues from the now infamous free music service, Grooveshark.
