Help keep IRP around, and get some limited edition IRP paraphernalia – while supplies last.

Names will be finalized and included in the NFO by the release of the next playlist. We will remove your name to either one upon request.
As for the new addition, an IRP band has offered to add the names of the $100 donors to the next (IRP) Intro. Optionally, we’ll use an alias of your choosing if you prefer to not have your full name in a song 🙂

As of this post, PayPal donations of $10 or more: 8
Note: Disregard the change in beneficiary to the GoFundMe campaign, all funds will still go directly to IRP Aid.
We needed to quickly change to an accepted bank or they’d no longer accept donations. Nothing has changed on the donor end.


Huge thanks to everyone listed here that helped keep IRP alive!
Without our donors, we’d be shutting down by 2020.
(we’re currently at 3/4 our goal)
Thanks to our supporters, we’ll be bringing back every playlist since May 2006, fixing/updating the IRP site, bringing out more playlists each year, and more special edition playlists – xmas/holiday, covers, etc.

Thank you for gifting the world with your playlists over all these years. I didn’t appreciate how much time, effort and resources went into these playlist until i started compiling my own. I’ve found it tough these past few months to keep it going. Thank you’s and appreciations are wonderful to hear but it doesn’t help producing them get any easier. I wish i could donate more but i’m sure if the majority of members in the group appreciate these as much as i do, then you shall have no problem in reaching, if not smashing your target. Thank you again for the years of music and giving me a platform to share my contribution towards the Indie Rock Alternative scene. Much Love.
Michael Jurasits
Kudos for all the time & effort you’ve put into this, it’s much appreciated.

Everything we’re mailing out is limited edition and won’t be in production again. Supplies are limited.

Any donations less than $10 will still be credited on the IRP site, and listed in the NFO as a supporter – forever. (this is optional of course)

The first 100 donations of $10 or more will get a custom IRP Thank You card – and the first 96 – a small ‘new-star’ sticker.
If you already donated and want the additional rewards, you can add to your previous amount, or start fresh – just be sure to use the same name so you’re not confused for a new donator when we contact you.

Reward Tiers:
$10 – IRP Button
$20 – IRP Pin or Button or IRP Sticker
$40 – IRP Pin and (Button or IRP Sticker)
$60 – IRP Pin, Button, and IRP Sticker

Check GoFundMe for updated statistics. As of this post, there have been 62 donations of $10 or more – this includes PayPal donations which are not listed on GoFundMe.

For the first time in 13 years, we’re asking for help to keep
Indie/Rock Playlist running. Without your help – we’ll need to shut down by 2020.
We’ve been doing these playlists since 2006, sifting through tens of
thousands of indie songs for each playlist – finding what we consider to be the very best new and unique indie tracks out there.
We’re asking for help to purchase new hardware, fund the music we
purchase, pay the operating cost of the IRP site, and purchase
necessary software. Until recently, we’ve been able to cover the cost, but now we need a little help!

What will donating get you? For donations of $20 or more, we’re offering to send out limited edition metallic IRP pins and IRP buttons (while supplies last)
Optionally, everyone that donates will be memorialized as supporters in every NFO file(the information file in every IRP folder), and on the IRP site .

Reaching our goal won’t just keep IRP alive, but we’ll be able to get
more playlists out each year – including special editions like the
covers, christmas/holiday, and Best of playlists.
We’ll also bring back every playlist since May 2006 – each one will be made available again.

If PayPal is your only option, you can donate directly and still receive a pin/button and be listed as a supporter – PayPal to:

FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)

1. When was IRP established?

May 2006 was the first Indie/Rock Playlist

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

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?

For the first time in 13 years, we’re temporarily accepting donations to keep IRP running.

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

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

Yes. Submit art to
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.

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.

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

Yes, for a limited time:

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.
