So we are back in Austin to cover the madness known as SXSW. The music portion of the festival kicks off next week. If you are heading down, or just want a taste of what kind of artists and bands are performing this year, SXSW is now offering a free festival sampler featuring 22 tracks. The sampler includes music from up & coming artists such as Anna Calvi (pictured above), Toro Y Moi, Foster The People, Jessica Lea Mayfield and The Civil Wars. The sampler also features established artists such as Bright Eyes, G. Love, Talib Kweli and Lucinda Williams. You can grab the tracks via iTunes by clicking here or pointing your browser to http://www.itunes.com/sxsw.
