A touching song about gay trees.

Paul Ford is back with six-word reviews of SxSW 2009 music (previously in 2008). Also be sure to check out Paul's (another Paul's) SxSW Artist Catalog (previously) for further SxSW music metadata goodness.

As morganw did last year (see his instructions for easy downloading), here is a list of five-starred music and four-starred music. (Take .txt off the URL for easy middle-clicking.)

Thanks for this. The six-word reviews are completely pointless (if ever a meme needed to die...), but the links to songs are totally great to have gathered up. AIDS Wolf - who knew?

I'm much more interested in listening to tracks my fellow MeFites recommend.
Bring em on, guys!

Oh man thank you for this. I got so much new music out of the last one, and I appreciated some of the reviews. Wanna ride bikes fast at night, for example, is exactly right.

Well, Paul Ford fits that description.

I like 'AIDS Wolf', not his reviews.

Absinthe Minds (Avant/Experimental) - "Busted stereo in John Gacy’s basement."

I was all like "Sweet! I love things like Climax Golden Twins, and that's a perfect description of them." Then I listened, and it didn't sound anything like that. It's more like an unreleased b-side of The Resident's 'Animal Lover', except with the vocals and all other interesting parts stripped out.

This has been another installment of 51-word snarks of 6-word reviews of mp3s.

If people want to post faves, Playlist might work. (I'm still listening.)

Oh, after a listen or two, I enjoyed Chip Pope's Ladyboy.

I downloaded all of the five-star songs--I think it was something like 130 or so--and I've been working my way through them. I have the list narrowed down to 41 songs that I really like a lot: here's a screenshot of that list. It's about two and half hours of music.

(I apologize for doing this in the laziest way possible, but I just wasn't up for a massive copy 'n' paste job tonight...)
