Blalock’s Indie Rock Playlist – August 2009

indierockplaylist

I’ve had a good response to making folks aware of the Indie Rock Playlists and how to download them so I thought I’d post and let you all know that Blalock has now released the August edition HERE – it’s only in torrent form for now but hopefully a download link will appear soon.

Episode 15 – Hot 100 (part one)

hot100new

I have been asked a few times to put together a podcast containing my absolute favourite tracks. As this would be an impossibility, due to changing my taste and mood so often, I decided to do something a *little* more scientific.

I have checked my listening history for the past 6 months and will be counting down my 100 most listened to tracks over that period. I’ve split the tracks into segments so that each podcast isn’t too long. Episode 15 covers numbers 100 to 91. Hope you enjoy the first bunch of tracks. Please let me know 🙂

Podcast available via links on right hand side of the page or via Indie Music Hour Podcasts

Tracklisting

100. Loop Duplicate My Heart by Suburban Kids With Biblical Names

99. I Love You Ono by Stereo Total

98. Creep by Radiohead

97. Time For Heroes by The Libertines

96. Lua by Bright Eyes

95. Shamemaker by Ween

94. Georgette Plays A Goth by Tullycraft

93. Love Will Tear Us Apart by Joy Division
