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.

Mixtape: Summer


So summer is here… As a former student, it still feels like I should be spending every day lounging outside in shorts drinking Budweiser at 10.30am… Except that when I say 10.30am, I mean 4pm… Anyway. I'm off to France for two weeks at the end of next week, so I was trying to put together a laid back (yet awesome) mixtape that I could enjoy whilst dozing in the back of the car on the long drive down. This is what I came up with, mostly with laid back music or from SXSW '06 artists… Anyway. Enjoy!
