Last day of the month! Last Tuesday of the month!
Last chance to hit you with the Best of January!
We have a growing multitude of reasons to be excited about 2023 here at UMC. Certainly, the strong musical opening statement provided by you, the independent artists of planet Earth, is among them.
Let’s keep up the good work, y’all! In the meantime, dive into some memorable tracks from throughout the month.Hear the Best of January
Looks like we get a bonus UMC20 this month, with January having five Tuesdays and all.
So, we’re using this opportunity to spread our wings a bit, bringing you a lot of first-timers to the UMC ecosystem mixed in with some returning friends with brand-new songs.
We’ll be back next Tuesday with the Best of January, and for certain, a few of these will make the cut. Till then, revel in the splendors of this week’s compilation.Listen to UMC20
Last week, we told you we were sitting on a treasure trove of upcoming submissions. This week, we’re excited to tell you that many of them have made their ways into the world!
Seriously, we’re amazed. How do you all ensure that we have a fresh bounty of sounds to compile every single week? Credit goes to the indie musicians of Earth for always making this happen, without question.Listen to UMC20
Sometimes, a song comes along that feels like a warm embrace; an assurance as the world closes in that everything is, in fact, going to be OK.
In that sense, Denver’s The Runaway Grooms have struck gold with their new single, “Heartwork.”Listen now
Folks, it’s finally here. The day has arrived.
Today, we narrow down the entire year to just 50 songs.
And, let me tell ya, it was a tall task. You’ve brought the heat to us consistently, and there were close calls and tough decisions throughout. We also had to factor in variety — we ensured that as many genres and flavors were represented as possible, to showcase the musical kaleidoscope that is the UMC community.
We hope you enjoy what we have for you on this year’s compilation. Check it out!Let’s go! Listen to UMC50!

Sounds of the season. Sounds from all over the world. They’re all here!
It’s December, which means it’s time to include a handful of holiday tunes, in addition to songs that fit the vibe any time of year. Speaking of the holidays, we’ve also got a few artists performing on this week’s Bundle Up Nash annual clothing drive here in Nashville, if you’re craving some local flavors.Listen to UMC20
