Getting ready for SXSW's onslaught of music

Every year, bands are asked to submit MP3s to SXSW music festival, and every year these are compiled into a giant torrent.

Here is the 2010 festival in MP3s.

These are legitimate, since they are all publicly available on the SXSW site. Bands that chose not to have their music available were not included in the torrent.

These are a beast to download, being just under 6 gigs of music, but can be great if you’re following along to the hype.

Last year, I heard about Girls being the band to watch out of SXSW, and, with the folder of music on my desktop, I dialed them up fairly easily. Sifting through already-downloaded MP3s is easier than MySpace, no?[rssbreak]
