FAQs

FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)


1. When was IRP established?

May 2006 was the first Indie/Rock Playlist
https://www.theindierockplaylist.com/playlist/indierock-playlist-may-2006


2. What’s the difference between IRP and BIRP?

BIRP(Blalock’s Indie/Rock Playlist) was created by Josh Blalock after IRP went on hiatus in January of 2009.
IRP returned in 2010, and since then the two playlists have coexisted.


3. Why isn’t IRP a monthly playlist anymore?

We try to release them as frequently as possible, but we’ve significantly increased the number of sources to check – increasing the time necessary to complete each playlist.
With over 15,000 songs between each playlist, it becomes a several month process to sift through each album/EP/single and find what we believe to be the most suitable. Hundreds of these songs are analyzed several times before we decide to use them or not. We do our best to weed out the most generic indie tracks, so that we might offer a more unique experience.

TL;DR – We want to create more refined playlists that have better replayability and longevity.
We hope that IRP listeners will appreciate the quality over quantity approach, even if it means fewer playlists each year.


4. How do we get our song on the playlist?

Submit MP3(V0 or 320) or WAV/FLAC to sendusyourcd@gmail.com


5. How do we get our song on the Apple Music and Spotify playlists?

There is currently no method to get your music solely on the streaming playlists.
See above for submitting a song.


6. What audio quality are the songs on the playlist?

We use V0 MP3, which is generally considered the best quality to filesize for MP3.
Every song we use is spectral analyzed for quality control. Nothing falls below the V0 cut-off.


7. Why isn’t the playlist 320 MP3 or FLAC?

Simply because the playlist would be too large, and V0 has the greatest availability.


8. How is IRP funded?

It’s not. We take in $0 from ads, merchandise, or donations.
We purchase a lot of the music we use, and implore our listeners to support the artists they find and love however they can.


9. Can we make an intro for the next playlist? What’s required?

Yes. We have a surplus of intros so that we may use the one that best fits the playlist at the time.
Submitted intros may take months or years to make it onto a playlist, but we will certainly accept and use them.
The only requirement for an intro is that you say/sing IRP or Indie/Rock Playlist at some point, and optionally introduce or mention your band. Intros should be less than a minute long.
We can send examples if needed.


10. Who is working on Indie/Rock Playlist now?

The original creator of IRP – Criznittle, and partner Cloudy who joined in 2013.
Cloudy, Criznittle, and Milan are the admins of the IRP page on Facebook.
Members of the IRP group on Facebook also contribute recommendations.


11. Who is responsible for the coverart?

We’ve had several artists contributing art for the playlists since 2008(no official art was created until March of ’08)
S. Nilsen has been our #1 contributor for the last few years – and he has created some of our best art.
Our past artists include: Martin L, Artsiom C, Nathan A, Steve C, Marko H, Simona M, Criznittle, Michael C, and Suhita S. We owe them all a huge debt of gratitude for the years of contribution – entirely gratis.
If you’d like to personally contact one of the artists, contact us at sendusyourcd@gmail.com


12. Can I submit coverart? What are the requirements?

Yes. Submit art to sendusyourcd@gmail.com
All art must include the text IRP or Indie Rock Playlist, the month and year, and optionally hide a star somewhere 🙂
When we have more than a few covers to choose from, we hold a vote in the IRP Facebook group. The group has decided on several of the covers over the years.


13. How do I make recommendations?

Join the IRP Facebook group and post your recommendation in the designated thread.


14. How can I join the IRP Facebook group?

The group is temporarily open to new members. Request to join, and answer 3 simple questions. If your answers are within acceptable parameters, you will be accepted within 24 hours.
https://www.facebook.com/groups/indierockplaylist


15. How can I stay updated on new Indie releases?

Like and follow us on Facebook for updates on the latest singles and album releases from your favorite IRP bands.
https://www.facebook.com/TheIndieRockPlaylist


16. Can I donate in any way to IRP or the creators?

No. We ask that you seed the torrents for as long as you can.
Spread the music, and support the artists. Far too many of our favorite bands break up – they need all of our support.
We often only use 1-2 songs from any one album, which we hope encourages our listeners to purchase the rest of the album or EP.


17. Why is the playlist ordered alphabetically by title and not by genre, preference, bpm, etc.?

Initially, back in May of 2006 it was ordered by title to keep a two part song together while mixing up the other bands.
Today, we simply prefer the shuffled feel it gives the playlist.
No bands get preferential treatment – the best song(s) could land anywhere on the playlist. This hopefully incentivizes listeners to give each song an equal opportunity, while also listening to the playlist in its entirety.
We still make a strong effort to provide a playlist that’s enjoyable from beginning to end, but instead of reordering the songs – songs are removed or sent to Vol. 2.
Songs moved to Vol. 2 can be equally as good, they just didn’t fit the flow of the Vol. 1 playlist that we try to maintain.
