IN THE MIX: LIVE FROM THE COUCH SXSW 2011, Curated by Stone
by Winston "Stone" Ford
While the Couch Sessions crew was down at SXSW we tried a little experiment. We placed stickers with QR codes all around town, and if you were one of the lucky ones to scan it, you were blessed with the mix featured below. Fortunately we got a few downloads and a few kudos for the project, but alas it was hard for us to stand out amoung the information overload that is SXSW. (If you’re there, you know what I’m talking about).
Having that said, I can’t just let this mix sit on the shelf. It’s just a sampling of some of the artists that were at SXSW this year (although Body Language cancelled) from Little Dragon to Freddie Gibbs, and it was curated to create a laid back feel (which as someone said is my trademark), perfect for these Spring evenings. Enjoy.
