The Austin 100: A SXSW Mix

If you're not going to SXSW and want to simulate the experience of attending the festival, crank our 100-song mix while spilling beer on your shoes.

Below is a rundown of the 100 songs in The Austin 100 — by no means a comprehensive list of our SXSW recommendations, in part because we left off a lot of names everyone already knows (TV on the Radio, The Strokes, et al). But if you've got some SXSW discoveries you think we missed, please leave them in the comments section below, and we'll try to listen before SXSW begins in (gulp) less than two weeks. And, of course, check our SXSW page for a full archive of recorded shows, photos and dispatches.
