NPR: The Austin 100 At SXSW

I am a huge music fan, though I have noticed that I tend to get somewhat set in my ways, which makes it hard for me to discover new music.  That’s why I am thankful for NPR offering the opportunity to download–FREE–100 mp3’s from artists that are headlining at this year’s SXSW Music Festival in Austin, Texas.

At the moment I am listening Tyagaraja with “We Will Meet Again,” and I have to say that I really like their country-flavored rock stylings.  In fact, it reminds me a bit of Patty Griffin.  The next track “Among The Grey” by Cheyenne Mize, reminds me of “The Breeders,” mixed with a dash of  “Romeo Void” at their most atmospheric and “Big Country” for the guitar bombast.
