Outroversion’s Best of SXSW 2010

A couple of things occured to me while downloading  and listneing to the annual SXSW showcase torrent-

1. It’d be great if someone uploaded this to multiupload rather than having to sit through a torrent download

2. Someone should put out a smaller one with the fat trimmed.

So the past few days i’ve been going through the 600 or so tracks and compiling a more compact and hard disk friendly version of about 80 tracks that I think are the highlights.

Two things you should remember if you have the very gall to complain- 1. This took me ages 2. It’s just my opinion 3. If you don’t like it do it yourself :p

Ok 3 things (:

If you like the musical stylings that I’ve offered over the past 1 year and 18 days then chances are you’ll like my selections. I’ve left off a few of the better known artists like eisley, boxer rebellion, she keeps bees etc. Get it here-

  2. thanks for the hard work. i’ve already downloaded the 600+ tracks and was wondering if you could list your 80 or so artists so i don’t have to clutter up my ipod with duplicate tracks. i see your “featured artists” but there aren’t 80 there. thanks again.

    • Hey jk! The artists I listed are all the ones that are in that rar, I have put extra tracks from some artists I REEEALLY liked like allo darlin’ and that mega man guy (: Dupes are annoying I know but in your itunes there’s the option to show them under the file option, hope that helps :)

  6. […] first heard about Random at this year’s SXSW, featuring him on the best of playlist and featuring a track shortly after. His straight-faced retro-gaming referencing is enough to win […]

  7. This is a great idea. I wish more people would release their select favorites. It’s a pain downloading the torrents and knowing that because there are so many tracks you should probably only listen to 15 seconds or so of every track.

    I’m googling as we speak for highlights.

    SXSW ’11 is here, hopefully someone will do highlights like you guys did for this year.

    • Yeah we’re doing one for this year, hold on tight!
