There's a lot of tech stuff going down at SXSW between the talking shoes and the projection-effect pool tables and whathaveyou, but at the end of the day, music is still a huge part. A 7.39 GB part. And you can go grab it all for free right now.
For the ninth year running, SXSW is sharing a whole glut of DRM-free tracks from performing artists, and this year, the total is upwards of 7 gig. All the tracks are available on the SXSW site, but for your convenience, Ben Stolt has collected all 1,210 tracks and crammed them into two torrents for your listening pleasure.
If you want to check it out, just hop on over to the (Unofficial) SXSW Torrent page and get going. In these days of streaming music, having a big ol' chunk of music on your hard drive might not be quite the same thrill as it used to be, but hey, it's free and guilt-free. Check it out. [TorrentFreak]
