Best of SXSW 2006

SXSW 2006 Logo

For those who don't know what SxSW (South by South West) is, it's a festival that takes place every Spring in Texas and usually has over a thousand performers for music and film (generally independent). With over a thousand artists to listen to, obviously people can't hear everything, so they release a sample song of every band that's performing on the SXSW Showcases website. This allows music fans who are going to the event to pick who they are going to listen to, and also allows me to pick a load of artists to showcase here as I've listened to all 973–odd of the buggers.


The Soft Lighties - Black Skinheads in White Pants - MP3

Captain - Frontline - MP3

    You appear to have missed Mogwai, Jose Gonzalez and Cut Chemist. :P

    Captain and Tapes n Tapes are boring.
    Lady Sovereign is quite amusing, but has better songs.
    Metric are awesome.
