Easiest donate decision ever. This has been instrumental in my life and for others i’m sure. Thanks!
I began college in 2006 and your music has been a part of my life for so long now.
Hopefully we can get to the goal. If everyone contributes just a little bit then we should be able to pull through.

I have long wondered how you managed to keep this going without any support. I’ve been a member almost since the beginning. I’ve found many bands I would never have discovered without this list (Rabbit!).”

Your playlists are the original and the best. Without them, i’d be still listening to the same stuff from 1994 on a loop.

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.
I’ve been listening to your playlists for over 10 years. I appreciate all of the work that goes into these.

FAQ (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 release them as frequently as possible, but we’ve 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.

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

5. How do we get our song on the Indiecent Exposure and Indie Crack Spotify playlists?

Send a Spotify link with your artist/band name, song title, and year of release to:

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

We use V0 MP3(variable bitrate roughly equivalent to 320kbps quality), which we consider to be the best quality to filesize for MP3.
FLAC may become an option for special releases.
Spectral analysis is performed on every song for quality assurance

7. Why isn’t the playlist available in other audio formats?

We believe MP3 offers the highest software and device compatibility

8. How is IRP funded?

IRP was kept alive by our faithful supporters! We’re not currently accepting donations, or any other form of monetary compensation.

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

Submitted intros will be used as quickly as possible, or can be timed with the release of an album if requested.
Examples provided upon request.

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

The original creator of IRP – Criznittle, and partner Cloudy who joined in 2013.
Cloudy and Criznittle are the admins of the IRP page and group on Facebook.
Members of the IRP group on Facebook can contribute recommendations, which may be featured on future playlists.

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
Our past artists include: Martin L, Artsiom C, Nathan A, RadRad, Steve C, Marko H, Simona M, Michael C, and Suhita S.

Yes. Submit art to

The group is temporarily open to new members. Request to join, and answer 3 simple questions.

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?


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

We prefer the shuffled feel it gives the playlist.
No bands get preferential treatment, and the best songs could land anywhere on the playlist.
We still make a strong effort to curate a playlist that’s enjoyable from beginning to end, but instead of reordering the songs, they’re removed or sent to Vol. 2.
