Criznittle’s Indie Rock Playlist is back!
That’s right. For those of you familiar with the original Indie Rock Playlist, that first one, Criznittle’s, today is a GREAT DAY! I just got an alert in my e-mail that he had a new blog post and sure enough there it was. 130 new tracks, his first since January 2009. The month before Blalock, myself (and maybe others, I’m not sure when they started) tried to fill his shoes when he announced that month would be the last, at least for a long time. I think I’ve come close to filling his shoes a few times, certainly Blalock has many times. But it’s SO good to have the real original back in the saddle.
Now, I just hope this isn’t a one time thing, some kind of April Fools joke. Please, no.
When I downloaded that first IRP in 2006 (?? I think, maybe it was early 2007) , it fired my interest in new music up again. I just genuinely had no idea how much amazing new music was being made out there. Since then, it’s become a passion and I have Criznittle to thank for that. And I’m not sure how I could ever truly repay him.
Are you skeptical that it’s really him? Well, the way I found out was through an alert that he posted a new blog post, from what I know is his MySpace. So, unless someone hacked his MySpace, it’s him.
I’m honestly still a bit in shock. So, here it is: THE Indie Rock Playlist…

Remember, it’s not the first of April yet, so I promise this isn’t a joke on MY part.
