Music fans who can't make it to giant US music industry shindig, SXSW, can download a behind-the-scenes podcast covering the show.

Musicane has released its "Ultimate Survival Guide to SWSX" podcast through iTunes. This offers exclusive interviews with top music industry executives and rising artists. The company describes the transmission as "offering a perspective from music industry insiders on how to break through the clutter of SXSW and get signed, get exposure or just get out alive."

The series of podcasts will serve as a guide for fans to pick out the best shows and to discover new bands and artists.
