More than eleven hundred tunes were put out there to showcase the bands appearing at SXSW this year and over the next few days we’re going to listen to every one of them. We’ll be posting our favourites in digest form, no long explanations just the songs and links to where you can find out more about the bands. Hope you enjoy the discoveries as much as we do.
