UMC20: New Faces Week (June 14, 2022)

OK, so there are some familiar faces on this week’s UMC20… but for the most part, we have artists making their debuts on our weekly playlist.

This one’s also a rock fan’s dream — we’ve got all kinds of rock and roll and Americana flavors on this week’s edition, before things take a poppier turn later in the playlist. And, as is always the case, there are 20 good reasons to dig in!

Oh, and we’ve included a couple tracks in honor of our friends at On the Guest List…, who just welcomed The Black Keys’ Patrick Carney onto their podcast. Check it out here!

PREMIERE: Is There Really ‘No Good News?’ Ask Nicole Boggs & The Reel

The opening guitar wail of Nicole Boggs & The Reel’s new single, “No Good News,” sets an ominous tone: one befitting of the modern times in which we live — which seem to carry more than their share of fear and uncertainty.

Hear it First!

Shirtless Scotty and Getting Real About Causes (ft. The OG Quinn Spinn Family)

The real question is not whether Scotty does this episode shirtless. It’s how many members of the OG family spend the episode partially nude — and on 6/9, no less!

It’s not all fun and games, however. After the clothes go back on, a discussion about the causes we support takes a serious turn, and we look to use our usually-silly platform to make the world a better place.

What it Means to Choose Yourself (Solo Mission #11)

Raise your hand if you’re a recovering people pleaser!

If that sounds like you, then you know it can be a challenge to learn how to choose yourself — or, what “choosing yourself” even means.

I’ve recently come to my own discovery, and I want to share it with you.
