Free Album Download: A SXSW Primer

Full SXSW Coverage for Live Concerts and Exclusive Performances

Next week, we'll load up the wagon and head to Austin, Tex., for our coverage of the annual South by Southwest music festival. We'll live webcast a bunch of great concerts (The Decemberists will premiere the new album The Hazards of Love), send out Twitter updates, blog about the shows we're seeing and much more.

To help you get ready for our coverage, we've put together a great mixtape for you with some of the bands we'll be featuring. You can download the whole thing for free from iTunes. It's got music from The Decemberists, Blitzen Trapper, BLK JKS, The Dirty Projectors and six others.

So go get your free copy of the mixtape now, and check back later for our complete SXSW coverage.
