Anthm is an app that lets people control the music in the places they go. Here’s how it works. Lets say you have friends over. Plug your device into your speakers and host a party. Your friends can join your party and everyone can add music into ONE playlist. The music comes from Rdio’s library so you and your friends can pick from millions of great songs.

Do you consider your taste in music to be one of the key things that define you as a person? Tastebuds.fm is a dating website and an online social network for people who love music, that connects people based on shared musical taste. According to Tastebuds:
We’ve always been interested in the idea that music taste can say a lot about a person and that for some people it is an important factor when choosing a potential partner… We started Tastebuds to explore this idea. We’ve found that for many of our users this is indeed something they place an emphasis on in their own experiences. At the very least it’s an interesting common ground to spark a conversation with someone which can be just as good a starting point as the fact that you both like red wine and walks along the beach.
Your music interests and likes can easily be imported from Facebook and Last.fm, or they can be entered directly. You can get started by entering just three artists. Tastebuds also has a blog and discussion forums.
