Prepare Your Ears for SXSW

Anyone who's attended the SXSW music festival knows the brain-bending tedium of reading a band schedule that's as thick as a telephone book. All those bands names, be they kind of cute, overly punctuated, literature-referenced and/or profane, like DENmark or Margaret Thatcher's Goddamn Knife Gang, start to ram together; and you still have no idea what they actually sound like. This is exactly what the SXSW Music Player was made for. Familiarize yourself by seeking out a specific group, or float along on a default stream of random bands from every genre. Listen and learn.
