Every year, more than 2,000 acts swarm to SXSW — and every year, NPR Music painstakingly handpicks 100 of the music festival's best discoveries for a downloadable six-hour sampler. We call it The Austin 100, and it's virtually guaranteed to contain something you'll love that you didn't know existed.

For the next 30 days, you can download The Austin 100 from this page — either song by song, or with one click, in its 839 MB entirety — as well as stream it as a continuous mix, both here and through NPR Music's various mobile apps.

I don't recognize any of the bands except Potty Mouth, but I don't think it's the same Potty Mouth from this site. I'm listening right now to Ryley Walker - I kinda like it.

FWIW, FREE STUFF!

I recognized... 10 of them, I reckon. Own music from three of those. This is great, thanks Elinda!

I'll have to cruise through this. I have a flash drive with new music I picked up via Google Play's various free song offerings, WXRT's free download "of the day" (which isn't very daily), the occasional Amazon free MP3 offering, etc. Half the time when Flea asks who is singing a song, I have no idea any more due to how many one-offs I have on there and have to cycle through to the artist/album information. Anyway, more potential stuff for the collection.

I only recognize Against Me! on that list, they're pretty cool. Although since I've gotten spotify I'm not exactly short on music to listen to (and Against Me! is on there as well).

My daughter always links me music from spotify, but I've held out on joining. One more internet account I decided I didn't need.

I've felt that way since the mp3 format was released into the wild.

That was my thought at first too but it's just so easy to find new music you like that it's worth the €10 a month to me to have it without commercials and on mobile+offline listening.

What the heck are all those names and what do they have to do with music?

Music is of the devil! Smiley: motz

I'll listen to about anything TBH, but more than my fair share of country music outside of the 90's grunge/alternative thing.

You can have my share, too.

I'd be happy with my own share at the moment. Kids stuff messes with the mind.

20 years later and I still can't scrub the words from my brain.

Baby beluga in the deep blue sea,
Swim so wild and you swim so free.
Heaven above and the sea below,
And a little white whale on the go.

I haven't played with Spotify and it sounds like I should give it a go. Sometimes I use Pandora though it can get sort of static in its selections without offering much new. Had a one month subscription to them but disliked that paying didn't seem to increase your skips -- if I'm ponying up cash, I want to be able to pass songs I don't want to hear at the moment. I know they have their agreements with the labels but paying just didn't offer enough value in my eyes without that.

I don't listen to a lot of streaming music in general though just because it can be a pain in my car where I do most of my listening. Which is why I liked the chance to just sample and collect MP3s from new and assorted people.

Haha, the very same words popped in my head as soon as I read the post but before clicking on the spoiler alert.

That's why I like the offline availability of Spotify premium, I can just download a couple of albums of bands I feel like listening to on my phone. It should be able to sync my iPod as well but I haven't tried that yet.

It doesn't automagically shuffle between music it thinks you like like Pandora does but every band has a related artists tab that is pretty accurate and on the discover page you get recommendations based on bands you've listened to and concert dates near you for bands you listen to. Other than that it mostly looks and works like iTunes.

South By is weird. They like to bring in all this indy small time stuff in order to preserve their image of being this kind of small music festival, when really it's just corporate as all ****.

Doesn't surprise me though, since Capitalism is gonna Capitalism and all.
