Songs You Should Hear: ‘Shine’ Your Light; Regret and Confusion Abound

You’ve made it to the end of another week! Your reward? A fresh batch of Songs You Should Hear!

This week’s edition does a good job of covering a lot of ground in just three songs, bringing us from a cross-section of nostalgia from the 1970s and 80s, to slick and modern R&B production.

Step on in and try something new!

UMC20: Bringing the Heat (May 10, 2022)

You had to know there’d be a weather pun, with summer making its first appearance of 2022 in Tennessee this week.

It’s also accurate, because (as always), we have your flavor of total fire on this week’s UMC20. Things get off to a hot start and keep burning — from hip hop, to metal, to folk, and all stops in between.

You know what time it is. Let’s go!

UMC20: Guess What? It’s Already May (May 3, 2022)

We’re late to the party on our annual J-Timbs meme share. Sorry — it’s just been busy.

However, one thing that isn’t late is this week’s UMC20 playlist — and we’ve got ourselves some bangers. We also have some more tender moments. We run the genre gauntlet, and we even have a Mother’s Day tune from a “Swanky Ma.”

Make sure you call Mom this weekend — after you check out what we’ve got for you below!

UMC20: Upcoming Performances, International Jams (April 12, 2022)

It’s a busy week around these parts. NashLive! has a couple shows — both in-person and virtual — and that’s always exciting. It also gives us plenty of tunes for UMC20.

That’s just part of the story, of course. We have artists spanning the globe featured this week, from as far away as New Zealand, as well as plenty right here at home. The genre spectrum is pretty well covered. All in all, this volume of UMC20 is surely memorable, and bound to have something you’ll want to replay over and over again.

Let’s get to it, then? Cool!

UMC20: April Showers Us with Fresh Jams (Apr. 5, 2022)

We’ve been waiting patiently over the past couple weeks to bring you some of this fire.

OK… so, you may have heard some of these tunes before (especially if you’ve been paying attention to the past couple editions of Songs You Should Hear). Nonetheless, there’s still plenty of reason to be excited, because you get to connect (or reconnect) with some incredible artists on this week’s UMC20.

A couple of songs are even making return appearances here, simply because we felt they were worth another spin or two. Whether it’s for the first time or the 100th, you’ll like what you have to spin below!

UMC20: The Best of March 2022

Can you believe that we’re already at the quarter pole of 2022?

It’s hard to believe that New Year’s Day is already three months behind us. Much has happened in the world since then, as it has in music.

We have a month’s worth of those musical happenings right here, rolled into a compilation that paints a beautiful picture of this wild and wonderful month. Get your fix of the Best of March below!

WATCH: On ‘I of the Hurricane,’ Alex Radus Rallies Against the Egocentric

Have you ever met somebody who, at all costs, absolutely must remain the center of attention?

“I of the Hurricane” — the latest from Alex Radus‘ forthcoming album, Tributaries — Recorded Live at Godfrey Daniels — is a slow-burning, at-times-scathing account of these individuals and the paths of destruction they tend to leave behind
