The Austin Sound Compilation

Taking on Austin's music scene is a bewildering endeavor, and we should know. At our last count, we figured there are at least 1,500 bands and artists that call Austin home, and we know that's really not even close to all of them. So the idea of putting together a compilation of Austin artists that we felt deserved more attention has become both a foolhardy and necessary endeavor, and one we figure we will have to keep up annually at the very least. With the entire independent music world descending upon Austin in the next couple of weeks, we thought it would be a prime time to, like SXSW, showcase some of the hometown talent. And so we present our first compilation of all Austin artists: Sound Advice Vol. I: The Start of Something.
