All hail Paul Ford! – He did the impossible. He did the unthinkable. He did the why-would-anyone bother?
He downloaded the entire SXSW torrent file which contains more than 48 continuous hours of music, representing 763 different bands (which is less than half the bands that played). Are you beginning to comprehend how ridiculously large the scale of South by Southwest is???
And he listened to each song in its entirety. And he reviewed each band. Succinctly. In 6 words or less.
He also provides a link where you can download their songs. Check it out. Comprehensive and kinda handy, huh?
Also, for those who care, The Raconteurs release their second full albun next Tuesday.
