UMC20: Hard-Hitting Anthems and Chill Vibes (Nov. 8, 2022)

It’s a high-powered, rock-heavy start to this week’s UMC20 playlist. That’s where it starts, but it’s not where it ends up.

You’ll notice different moods and genres gradually peppering their way in as you progress through this week’s 20-track volume. And, for all of the frenetic energy that starts things off, by the end of the ride, you’ll be vibing on a completely different wavelength.

UMC20: The Musical Harvest Continues (Oct. 11, 2022)

With every week that goes by, the independent musicians of Earth continue bringing the HEAT.

It means we’ll never run out of choice cuts to feature on UMC20 (and elsewhere within this wild and wacky UMC ecosystem). And, while that lends us to make tough calls as to what to include, and where to slot each submission onto the playlist, rest assured that we’d rather have too much than too little.

If you’re a musician reading this, the best way to get on our radar is to submit your tunes here. And, while you head over to the forms and tell us everything we need to know about your music, enjoy this week’s edition of UMC20 for inspiration!

Anyway, onto the gallery…

If you were looking for a dynamic rock show to close out your September, NashLive! had the goods at The 5 Spot.

UMC20: Packed with Girl Power (June 7, 2022)

In honor of tonight’s very special, very important Safe Haven Family Shelter benefit at LTH Coffee & Social (7113 Charlotte Ave., 6-9 p.m.), we’ve loaded this week’s UMC20 with female-fronted acts!

Not only have we included all eight of tonight’s performers but, of the 20 tracks on this week’s compilation,15 were released by women. That’s a whopping 75 percent of this week’s playlist! Girl power, indeed.

What more do we need to say? Let’s get into it!

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: 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!

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!
