The folks over at NPR have hooked us up again–they just released the new SXSW Sampler for free via Itunes, with songs from Spoon, Surfer Blood, The Walkmen, and more!
While I don’t have the scratch to head down to Austin this year, you can hit up the great show being put on by Death + Taxes Magazine on March 18th, featuring bands like No Age, Japandroids, and Best Coast. Just remember to RSVP or you won’t be getting in to the free show. Its 21+.
The tracklisting for the NPR Sampler is pretty stellar.
“Written in Reverse” by Spoon from Transference
“The High Road” by Broken Bells from Broken Bells
“I Learned the Hard Way” by Sharon Jones And The Dap-Kings from I Learned the Hard Way
“Canadian Girl” by The Walkmen from You & Me

“Airplanes” by Local Natives from Gorilla Manor
