Free Album! Austin Power: SPIN’s Best SXSW Acts 2012

SPIN Presents Austin Power: Best SXSW Acts 2012

Last time we looked at the lineup, there were approximately 135 billion bands playing SXSW 2012… that’s more burgeoning musicians than there are stars in our very galaxy! Luckily SPIN is bound by indie rock law to listen to every one of them and have thusly hand-picked a swell mixtape of some of the most important acts to watch for in the upcoming weekend. Whether you’re heading down to Austin to get blasted on beer and BBQ before dropping your laminate in the lake, or just watching the festivities via your RSS reader; here are 30-plus artists people will be talking about during and after. This free (free!) download has everything from to the new hip-hop underground (Cities Aviv, Mr. Muthafuckin’ eXquire, DaVinci) to the new generation of noise-punk pigfuckers (Dope Body) to the new synthed-out poptronica (Blondes, Tycho). It’s a great way to catch up on SPIN Essentials (Cloud Nothings) or the under-the-radar art-weirdos that we keep hinting are great (Bleached, Ava Luna, Xray Eyeballs). Plus did we mention that the mixtape stars Main Attrakionz are playing our unreal party at Stubb’s? Download this thing right now and pre-game for our long weekend of eating pulled pork and hanging with industry dorks!

We’re sorry, this download is no longer available.
