What is BIRP?

BIRP! stands for Blalock’s Indie Rock Playlist.

Where can I listen to the BIRP! playlist?

The May BIRP! playlist is out now and can be streamed from here.

It’s a website with lots of great information about new music but the most important thing is the playlist. Josh Blalock, the owner, puts together a monthly compilation playlist of new music that is free to stream online or download.

I have religiously followed this for the last 7 years or so from which I have discovered many new and old artists alike that I have went on to follow.

A few examples being fun, Marina And The Diamonds, Polly Scattergood and Glasvegas.

It’s one of the best and easiest ways to discover new music.

Thanks to Josh for all his hard work that must go into putting it all together and long may it continue!
