Indie and New Music Playlist Round-Up – September 2010

September 14, 2010 3 comments

I figure… as long as I get this done before the 15th, it’s not late. So, depending on when you see this, it is or is not “late”. Either way, I’ve had a chance to listen to a couple of these and it IS a good month. Just wish I had time to grab them all. Looks like Criznittle is sitting September out. We miss ya. Remember, when I find new playlists, I add them to the list for the month. So check back here often for updates. Here’s the rest….

BIRP Sept 2010 cover art.Is that not the best cover? Pure awesome. Click on it to see it animate! TrippyCat iz in your headz, makin’ your trips! I can has acid? It’s a great selection this month. Check it all out. HERE.

Cut the Crap Cover artCut the Crap is back. Let the Crap be Cut!! Good to hear this one. The name fits, really. It seems like time and effort are put into these to get a certain quality and selection. And you will find tracks here that none of the other playlists have. It’s a different take on things. Refreshing. I know it says August, but it really came out in Sept. So have at it all HERE.

Navigator's Fresh List Indie Sept 2010 Cover art.Here we have Navigator’s playlist. I have not downloaded this one yet, but I will. You should, too. Give it a shot. Past lists have been great. Grabby HERE.

Jimdo's Indie Rock Music September 2010 cover artJimdo’s playlists are always great and this is no exception. You know, this is really dull sometimes, having nothing negative to say. The truth is, I just love all the lists and get a gigantic kick out of hearing SO MUCH new music all the time. And it would be hard for one of these playlists to go terribly wrong. But I SWEAR.. this one. … this Jimdo’s playlist is special. Yes, if you download all of them, you will get some repeats. But that’s not exactly hard to fix. It’s worth it. Grabster HERE.

SAG's Indie Electro Rock Playlist September 2010 cover art.Here we have a stated and very real difference. There’s a lot more bleep-bloop here. That’s not a bad thing. And there are some GREAT bleepin’ bloopin’ tracks out this month. Don’t let anyone tell you that this music cannot “rock”. Oh it can. And will. Bleep it bleepin’ HERE (link to multiupload on indierockplaylists.com). Really needs to be a torrent of this every month.

Indie 69 September 2010 Cover art.Alright. What’s the deal with the name? There have been over 100 tracks for 2 months running now. So it’s not that there are 69 tracks. Is this guy some kind of perv or something? I mean, WTF!? Is that some kind of a joke? SixtyNine! Oooh, how original. I bet he thought that’d get some attention, huh? Jeeze. And then with the cover art? What is that? A Doctor Who font? Nerrrrrrrrd!!!! lol. I cannot believe this guy still thinks anyone cares what he thinks is good on a given month in music. But he just keeeeeps doing it. Over and OVER and OVER. I guess if you like that sort of thing it’s worth grabbing this month. I guess it’s good for…. completists? That’s about it, really. Stop encouraging him. If you MUST.. grab it HERE.

.

That’s it for this month. I hope this list comes in handy for everyone. Also, there’s a new site out there you may have seen mentioned in the comments called IndieRockPlaylists.com . It’s well maintained, easy on the eyes and the person doing it is pretty darned cool. So check it out. You may find it a more convenient place to grab everything. And there are tons of artist links on the lists. Nice touch. But.. umm.. come back here anyway! lol. See you next month and in the blog. I promised higher volume of posts and I am delivering. So check back often.

Indie (and new music) Playlist Roundup, June 2010

June 9, 2010 9 comments

Sorry, this thing is usually done a lot quicker, earlier in the month. But this month has been a doozy for me. So much so that I have not downloaded all of these as I usually do. Did you know, by the way, that the end of a sentence is not where a preposition should be AT? I didn’t. Still do not. For me, that’s still where it’s usually at.

NE-ways. Here’s the list of lists containing links to the playlists so you can download them and fill your players and computers with so much new music you will be compelled.. yes COMPELLED to spontaneously purchase at least 5 CDs and attend 3 shows. Much like the Men’s Warehouse, I guarantee it. Minus the guarantee part. And the part where I sound like I’m falling asleep recording the promo. Hmm. Might be a regional reference. (but you should do those things anyway)

Check out the great cover art this month, too. My fave is the BIRP cover. Paper party ribbons or something. Very nice.

How lucky are we to have SO much new music to sample every month? The more the merrier. Sure, we get dupes here and there. But there’s so much to choose from and so many discoveries to be made. SO lucky. This used to be so difficult. Finding that odd station on the left of the dial, listening through the hours of hippie-dippy-hour DJs to get to that one guy in the middle of the night with his finger to the pulse of the new music world. And then sometimes missing the back-announce, never to find out who did that one song that had the thing in it that sounded like the gods having an orgy in a sand-pit with their feet on fire and then went SHOOOM – Bashow!! Yeah, the “good” old days. …. are.. over. Finally. But I miss you, radio. I really do. More on that later. For now… THE LISTS!

(Disclaimer: I visit these torrent sites using NoScript, allowing only stuff required to use the site and no more. You should do the same. If any of them do anything nasty, I’d never know because I remain protected and vigilant. So proceed with caution when using any site you’re not familiar with. Train your noscript patiently and carefully, only allowing necessary scripts)

Indie Rock Playlist (Criznittle's)Indie Rock Playlist(Criznittle)June, 2010 –  Have not downloaded it, but grabbed the torrent file. The list of songs looks like another great one.  As always, if you can only get one, this is it. Always great, diverse and inclusive of the near-mainstream to the obscure. The original. The one. The NEO of playlists. But without that kinda sucky third movie.

Cut The Crap Playlist cover art, May 2010Cut the Crap: Link to TPB profile in case he changes his mind – as of June, 2010 according to this blog (CAUTION:BIEBERBLOG lol), the Cut the Crap playlists will no longer be torrented. They will be distributed via Zip file. If you keep up with the blog, you’ll be able to find the links there from now on. The blog also has an awesome music submission page using google docs. Too bad this one is no longer going to be on the torrents. But at least it’s still around, which is good because this one tends to be very different than the others.  Still no June playlist though, as of today. You can find the May 2010 one here. (EDIT: The reason there’s no June playlist is because he releases his playlist at the END of the month, not the beginning. So that explains that. This one (May) is the most recent.)

Joydue’s Indie Rock PlaylistJune, 2010 –  (cannot find cover art) Another playlist that tends to be very different from the others.  A lot of stuff I’ve never heard of. Catch up time. Tried to find the cover art, but it’s not in the torrent and the blog appears to be invite-only. On purpose? Not sure. But that’s how it is right now. Invite only.

.

Navigator's Indie Rock Playlist June, 2010 cover art.Navigator’s Fresh!!! Indie Playlist June, 2010 – Have not tried this one, new to me. Even though Google reveals it was on Mininova back in 2009. Not sure how I missed it. Don’t know much about it other than the tracklist, which looks interesting. It leans a bit toward what you’d probably hear on the few “alternative” stations still around for some of the tracks, direct indie tracks for the rest. Leans on the rock side of things it seems. Which isn’t a bad thing, since the others don’t focus on that as much as a whole. So this is good. Grab it.

Dakradha/Samy/Snipe The Hype – Nothing this month, but watch here for the next edition(s). I really love the fact that these two are working together now, even if it means we won’t get a PL as often.

.

Indie 69 June 2010 Cover ArtIndie69 New Musiaylist June, 2010 –  That’s right. Musiaylist. A new word. (curiously similar to “New Music Playlist”) Invented by TPB’s recent habit of removing random characters from torrent names when their captchas fail more than 3 times. ARGH! I mean, I love the site, no denying it.. but WTF??!! And no way to fix it without abandoning the torrent and starting over. Let this be a lesson for me (and anyone else), pay attention to the torrent name after the captcha fails more than once. Chances are, something is going away when you’re not looking in the right place at the right time. FAILICIOUS! I’m hungry for hearts of facepalm!

That’s it for June. Dakradha and Samy are missed, to be sure. Criznittle is still back (yay) and there’s a few new faces on the block. If you find or know of other playlists, comment please and I’ll edit them in/eventually try them. Have a great June and I’ll blog in-between about Internets stuff up until July, which is already stacking up to be a GREAT month for new music of all kinds. Keep the true indie spirit alive as these people have. And make your own playlists, then share them. But most of all.. and this is VERY important…

SEED. El Seed, senor. And keep the bittorrent angle alive. Don’t be a slave to bandwidth that can be controlled, stopped, inspected, scrutinized or manipulated in any way by others. Bittorrent will free us all. Direct download alternatives are great. Wonderful. Perfect. BUT.. try to stay in the bittorrent world at the same time.  It can be frustrating, but it’s so worth it.  They say in space no-one can hear you scream. In bittorrent, no-one can hear you DMCA. No matter HOW much that metaphor sucks.

and it does.

Love ya all, have a great “rest of June”.

Indie Playlist Roundup – May 2010

May 4, 2010 6 comments

Another month and we still have our beloved Criznittle back! And two playlist people have even started working together, Samy and Dakradha, making an unstoppable force to be reckoned with.  Nice job, folks! Looking forward to downloading it and listening. You should too. There may be some small overlaps, dupes, etc. But there’s also a LOT of diversity in this month’s playlist offerings. So let’s get to the links.

Indie Rock Playlist May 2010 Cover art. Criznittle’s Indie Rock Playlist (or simply THE Indie Rock Playlist)May, 2010 – Another great month with a lot to choose from. 120 tracks. I still don’t know how he does it. I spend a huge amount of time every month seeking out new music, and this guy always manages to find a TON of stuff I’ve never heard. And within those tracks, always a few that are real stand-outs, remaining on my player permanently. If you only grab one, this is it.

.

Blalocks Indie Rock Playlist May 2010 Cover Art Blalock’s Indie Rock Playlist May, 2010 – 125 tracks of new music goodness. This month marks the 1 year anniversary of his fantastic site, BlalocksIRP.com . A great community for equally great people with outstanding taste in music and even a community playlist. He’s added a Mixtape section on the site this month to celebrate and anyone can participate.

.

Snipe the Hype Vol 1 Cover art. daKradha AND SamySnipe the Hype Vol 1 – Two playlist people joined together to bring you what they describe as  “artists that are mostly rather unknown or deserve more attention, deserve to be heard, to be observed by you and we want, through this medium, provide you that possibility” It’s a brand new project for them and I’m really looking forward to hearing it all. Some of the tracks are not new, but I bet they’ll be new to my ears and probably yours. And that’s what counts. It just came out today, so get it and seed it. I hope this remains a monthly thing.

.

Joydue’s Indie Rock PlaylistMay, 2010 – Joydue is from Brazil, and that means we get the chance to hear music from there that we wouldn’t normally get a chance to hear. But that’s not all, he also includes tracks from all over. And I’m always satisfied with the mix of styles and sounds. Joydue was missed in April due to some computer issues, but he’s back now with 47 tracks.  It’s a smaller playlist than some of the others, which makes it great for a quick download and a shot at hearing stuff that isn’t even covered in the indie “blogosphere” mainstream.

.

Indie 69 May 2010 Cover Art Indie69May, 2010 – 69 tracks. Who is this guy? 69 tracks? What’s with that? Is that some kind of pervy thing, that number? Why that number? Suspicious.

NE-ways.. see you in a couple of days for more rantings and ravings as always. Enjoy all the music, have fun and most of all support the artists by buying CDs, downloads , merch and going to their shows. Thanks for reading and HUGE thanks to all the playlist people. You keep opening ears and bringing happiness to people through music. It’s a wonderful thing you do. Except that one guy… seems like a perv.

Criznittle’s Indie Rock Playlist is back!

Indie Rock Playlist April 2010 Cover Art

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…

Indie Rock Playlist – April 2010 (link to torrent on Seedpeer)

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