Blalock’s Indie Rock Playlist is now available for February 2015. If you’re not familiar, “BIRP” is a monthly compilation of 100+ indie rock tracks that are free to stream or download via torrent. Most of the music is submitted directly by bands and labels and is 1-2 months old. I’ve been downloading nearly every monthly playlist for the past few years and it’s been the primary way I discover great new indie music. Many of the artists whose music I first heard on BIRP went on to become surprisingly popular.
Much of what we add to the Smoothspin Indie 100 Spotify playlist we discovered via BIRP.
