The Download

One of the best things about attending the annual South By Southwest music festival is the abundance of up-and-coming talent. But if you weren’t able to make the trip to Austin, Texas, this time around, you’re not totally out of luck. The SXSW site has posted hundreds of MP3s from this year’s lineup. Simply browse the week’s schedule and look for the cassette symbols (primitive? or “vintage”?) next to designated artists for a free track. Or save yourself the trouble and grab the whole thing in a single torrent. In the end, you’ll have enough new music at your fingertips to keep you occupied until next year’s bash.
