UMC20: The Best of November 2022

How is it already the end of November?

That means 2022 is almost over. That means the holiday season is officially in full swing. That also means that it’s time for another monthly UMC20 Best Of compilation.

Lots of tough choices were made, but overall, we think we’ve put together a nice representation of how stellar November 2022 has been. You be the judge!

UMC20: Thankful for This HEAT (Nov. 22, 2022)

We’ve got a smorgasbord of rock, pop, and Americana for you this week!

Also, a big shoutout to our friends at °1824 (via Universal Music Group), who are always down to share their emerging artists with us. A few appear here, as you weave your way through the playlist. A couple of them (namely, DREAMERS) will be in town tonight — and we’ll be there, camera in tow!

Let us all give thanks for these jams. Then, let’s dig in!

UMC20: Everything You Need (Nov. 15, 2022)

It’s that time again!

Time to hear what the indie musicians of Earth have been up to. From Nashville to Nigeria — we’ve got an artist based in Lagos on this week’s UMC20 — we’ve got exactly what your music-loving soul needs, and we’re wasting no time in bringing it to you!

P.S.: See if you can find the three artists performing with us at this Thursday’s NashLive! Holistic Hang at The Holistic Connection. Also, make plans to join us!

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: Starting November Strong (Nov. 1, 2022)

They say that the end of the year is when things are supposed to “slow down.” If the submissions we’ve received over the past couple weeks are any indication, that assumption would seem to be false.

There’s so much auditory enjoyment coming our way on a daily basis, and it always makes for an exciting and dynamic weekly compilation. It’s also amazing to see how music connects us from our different corners of the world — from LA to New York, from Nashville to Cheyenne, these tunes aren’t all tied to one locale.

LISTEN: Purple Haired Rock Goddess Anastasia Elliot Inspires Listeners to Turn Traumas into Works of Art in Her First EDM Song, “The Shattering”

Known as the “purple haired rock goddess,” audio-visual artist Anastasia Elliot is enigmatic to say the least. Her colorfully curated style, disciplined classical training, and her ability to create an entire immersive universe of cinematic wonder, all alchemize in such a way that sets her apart from fellow artists in the indie art rock world.

UMC20: Autumnal Moods (Oct. 18, 2022)

It’s freezing in Nashville today.

OK, it isn’t freezing. But highs are only in the 50s, so it might as well be.

What that also means is that it’s time to trade summer’s bright energy for cozier moods befitting the season. That’s not to say that there aren’t some bangers on this week’s edition of UMC20, but it is to point out that the back half of this week’s playlist has a healthy dose of pensive Americana tunes befitting the vibrant pastels of a mid-October sunset.

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!

UMC20: Reaping the Musical Harvest (Oct. 4, 2022)

This week’s UMC20 is packed with gorgeous soundscapes, heartfelt stories, and even a few bangers sprinkled in.

We’ve had a couple weeks to re-load our stockpile of fresh jams, and we’re reaping the musical harvest here today. Have a seat at our table and dig in!

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!

Hear the Best of September
