This is Handy for Me

In the past, I've gushed over the free music available from the SXSW Festival in Austin. As I age, I find it harder and harder to find music by new (to me) artists, and the prospect of hundreds of free singles to try out legally is a great opportunity.

This year, things are even better. Not only is there 48 hours worth of music to download, but we are blessed with a critic's 6 word review of each one of the 763 songs.

Here are a few samples of the reviews:

Amy Cook: You can love Neko Case too much.
Beangrowers: Girls with herpes love this song.
David Garza: His snotty girlfriend makes him anxious.
Greta Gaines: Sometimes “singer-songwriter” tells you everything.
Parts & Labor: The Island of Misfit Toys Orchestra.

Go have fun, and report back on any great music you find . . .

Thanks for the link. I'll have to do some exploring later...although, I quickly scanned the list and a number of bands I like got bad reviews, so I'm not sure if I can trust this guy.

A librarian at another library went this year and I am now pondering how to sucker (I mean get my library to sponsor) a trip for me next year.
