The annual South by South West Music Festival starts next weekend in Austin, Tx. This is the mother of all music shows for new artists and attending one of these is on my list of things to do before I die. Every year they release samples from the artists, last year this was 761 songs, this year it is over 1,200. The genres range all over hip-hop, world, jazz, rock, folk and many more are represented. Every year I down load all the samples and go through them, last year out of 761 songs I marked 138 of them as very good. This year has over 1,200 samples, well over two solid days of music to listen to, wish me luck. Please note, these are legal artist’s samples, if you like an artist support them or they will go away.
