UMC20: The Best of September 2022

Do you feel that chill in the air? Better put on some FIRE to keep us warm.

This month was full of fire, and we’re here to let it burn. These 20 tracks are a glorious snapshot of what September had to offer, weaving through genres and moods to create one true eclectic, yet unified masterpiece.

Let’s not delay. Get to it!

UMC20: High Energy, Cool Vibes, Stellar Storytelling (Sept. 13, 2022)

There is no shortage of exciting new sounds to be heard on this week’s edition of UMC20.

From high-powered pop punk bangers, to cool hip hop and R&B vibes, to the storytelling spirit of Americana, this one has it all. We’ve even snuck in tunes from artists on our next couple NashLive! lineups, just for fun.

All told, this week’s playlist is designed to give you something you’ll love. What are you waiting for? Get in there!

UMC20: Back from the Beach (Sept. 6, 2022)

Summer is unofficially over, and that means it’s time to get down to brass tacks by delivering you some fresh, recently-submitted HEAT.

OK, so maybe one of these songs wasn’t submitted, and is included here simply because I’m vibing on it, post-sabbatical. Which one? Well, here’s a hint: it’s from Dirty Heads’ new album, Midnight Control, which released on August 26 and, personally speaking, is already one of my favorite albums of all time. Sometimes, a new record just hits the spot.

After that, though? You’ll enjoy a multitude of multi-genre flavors straight from our submission form. Hope you’re ready!

UMC20: The Best of August 2022

We’ve had a multitude of adventures this month on the way to landing on the UMC20 Best of August. We even had a guest curator step in one week (thanks, Jenna!).

The end result? 20 different perspectives, informed by genre, life experience, and the tastes of multiple curators, mixed up into a musical gumbo pot and best served hot.

UMC20: Back in the Saddle (Aug. 16, 2022)

I’m back in the saddle to supply you with this week’s fresh UMC20 playlist. However, the Sheriff isn’t back in town just yet. That’ll be in a few weeks, when I make my trek back to Nashville on Labor Day.

The good news? After my Musikfest adventure, I’m back to working remotely! I’ll be checking in as usual from here on, and I thought I would do so by bringing you some new HEAT.

Embrace the heat. Listen to UMC20 below!

UMC20: Upcoming Shows, Interview Guests, and More (Aug. 2, 2022)

We have so much to get to with this week’s edition of UMC20, and that includes providing clues about what’s coming down the pike in the near future.

We have upcoming (and previous) Quinn Spinn guests featured here, as well as artists set for forthcoming NashLive! shows this fall. We have submissions from multiple different continents and, of course, we touch as many genres as possible across these 20 tracks.

Sound exciting to you? Good, because it does to us. Let’s go!

UMC20: The Best of July 2022

Independent musicians of Earth… you brought the heat once again this month!

It was a lot of fun to construct the UMC20 Best of July, even if some tough decisions were made. There were some all-around bangers and, all told, this month was an especially strong one.

Come on in and hear why. It’s time for the Best of July!

UMC20: Every Wednesday in July (July 20, 2022)

Tuesdays have been especially productive around here lately — so productive, that it’s taken us an extra day each week in July to compile the week’s UMC20 playlist.

Like its predecessor, this one’s worth the wait. It starts off with some raucous rock and roll (and gives a nod to this week’s NashLive! show at The 5 Spot), then heads into alternative, hip hop, and pop territory. We crossfade from pop into country, and finish it off with a solid helping of soul.

UMC20: Another Wednesday Edition (July 13, 2022)

When we get busy, we stay busy. When we get a little too busy, we need a little more time to properly listen to the 20 songs that will make up the week’s UMC20.

This is another edition that’s worth the wait. We’ve got some fresh, hot rock anthems; varying shades of Americana; all kinds of pop, soul, and R&B, and even a little bit of ambient electronica. This week’s playlist is a true variety pack!

UMC20: Worth the Wait (July 6, 2022)

We were catching up from the recharge of the long weekend yesterday, and decided we needed an extension on delivering this week’s UMC20 to your digital doorsteps.

With that said, we’re confident that these 20 jams are worth the wait. Surely, you’ve seen a few of these grace our pages in other ways in recent weeks. As for the others, they may be new to your ears, and you just might be hearing more about a few of them in the days ahead.

We’re back in action from the holiday, and as always, we’re bringing the heat! Come get some below!
