SXSW Sampler

SXSW has released the first of this year’s torrents with 739 mp3s from 2007 showcase bands (it’s a hefty 3.1 GB). Even if you’re not planning on attending the festival, it’s a great snapshot of the state of emerging music. (You can also go directly to the listings of say, Chicago bands playing the festival, and download individual tracks.)

    Those MP3s are a lot to digest. It’s amazing how many good bands make it down to SXSW, and also how many bad ones. My favorite 3 words in Austin, Free Shiner Bock!

    Wow, that’s pretty cool that they release all of those. I’ve gotta get down there one of these years.
