UMC20: UMC Birthday Edition (Jan. 18, 2022)

It feels good to be alive today!

On this day six years ago, in the small, plucky former industrial city of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, a regional music blog was born. It was called Lehigh Valley Underground, and it would go on to cover some cool festivals, win some local awards, and become a pretty legit community resource.

Then, toward the end of 2018, LVU changed its name, moved to Nashville, and became the Underground Music Collective you know and love today. The rest, as they say, is independent music history.

And, because we find ourselves in a celebratory mood on this sixth anniversary of Launch Day, it’s only fitting that we have a brand new UMC20 playlist for you. We’ve combed the depths of our submission form and inboxes, and we also decided to show some love to the artists on next Thursday’s Music on the Move showcase at Analog Nashville, just for fun.

Happy New Year! 2022 is only a few days old, and we are here to celebrate the fresh new possibilities before us with a new edition of our UMC20 playlist!

It’s been a few weeks since we’ve delivered an all-new UMC20. We gave you an updated Holiday Hits playlist a couple weeks back, followed by the 2021 edition of our UMC50 year-end compilation.

Now that we’ve celebrated the holidays, it’s about time we start telling the story of 2022. NashLive! shows will certainly be a part of that story, and we have a few upcoming lineups represented below, alongside exciting new submissions and selections. Let’s waste no time digging in!
