UMC20: Winter Moods and More (Dec. 6, 2022)

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.

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.

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: 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: 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: The Best of June 2022

What a month we’ve had around here, y’all!

We got to help families in need, we welcomed inspiring guests onto our official podcast, and we got to build community, all while enjoying a bevy of incredible releases from independent artists here, there, and everywhere.

The UMC20 Best of June 2022 is a snapshot of the month that was, but even so, the story wouldn’t be complete without the memories we created throughout the month. Thanks for being part of the ride with us. Let there be many more good times to come this summer!

Hear the Best Of June
