Get In The Spirit Of SXSW With Our Playlist Of The Festival's Best Up-And-Comers

sxsw-playlist
If there's one music festival to kick off a summer's worth of events, it'd have to be Austin's week-long South by Southwest extravaganza. Sprawling across the city's bars, clubs, and parking lots and featuring hundreds (if not thousands) of bands, SXSW is our favorite place to discover the best new music groups in the world.
While it doesn't have the two-weekend star power of Coachella or the natural beauty of Bonnaroo, SXSW occupies a special place in our hearts, year after year. That said, we've created a playlist with 20 amazing tracks from our favorite up-and-coming producers and bands to check out at SXSW '13. Some of these bands barely have an EP to their name, but from the wistful folk of Waxahatchee to the old-school MC charm of Joey Bada$$, we think these guys are the future of music. Take a listen.
