A ways back (try 2005) the SXSW music festival released a torrent of songs by bands playing the festival. I downloaded it, something like 2GB of tunes, something like two or three thousand of them, mostly by unknown bands.
Unsurprisingly, there was a lot of crap, and some finds. As the bum ones would come up I would delete them, and when a good one came on I would give it four or five stars, but that was a few iTunes installs ago and I’ve lost my play counts and stars many times since then. But every once in a while I’ll stumble on one of those songs that I liked.
I know nothing about this. Google Addictions and Candy and you get a million hits about too much sugar. But it’s fun and from 2005.
