NPR Allsongs at SXSW

The NPR Allsongs Considered team is covering the upcoming SXSW festival in Austin like a blanket on a cold night. At least that's the plan anyway.

To get started, listen to a great podcast of a festival preview ...
On this edition of All Songs Considered, host Bob Boilen chats with NPR Monitor Mix blogger Carrie Brownstein, All Songs Considered producer Robin Hilton and NPR Music editor Stephen Thompson about some of the bands they're most looking forward to seeing at this year's South by Southwest music festival.
Really helps that the four take this seriously while still having a few laughs ... usually at someone else's expense. Almost at an hour and a half, it just zips along. And the SXSW-Santa portion of the program, well, it almost falls apart but actually is a great idea.
