SXSW 2014 Cover Art is Posted

I have just post­ed this year’s album art for SXSW, the Music fes­ti­val in Austin in eleven days.

But all is not well. SXSW has offered one track from each artist as a down­load (as a .tor­rent) since at least 2005. Accord­ing to the Unof­fi­cial SXSW Tor­rents site, while there are a small num­ber of tracks avail­able so far, SXSW has decid­ed to put the files up on Sound­cloud, instead. Sound­cloud works hard to pre­vent cap­ture of the music they play, which makes down­load­ing the tracks… dif­fi­cult.

Go to the cov­er art page to get this year’s art, and find out how to let SXSW know that you don’t like this.

Hel­lo, vis­i­tors from the Intar­webs.  You grace my site with search queries about the SXSW Music con­fer­ence, and I have decid­ed to give you what you want:

  • Here is a link to the cov­er art I made for the SXSW 2008 music.  You may use this cov­er art (a 600 x 600 pix­el jpg file) how­ev­er you like, though I sug­gest using it in iTunes.  Oth­er years are also avail­able in that post, as is prop­er cred­it to Ben Mil­lett, who made the first exam­ple of SXSW cov­er art I found.
Have at them.
