Vacation was fun, and we do have a pile of emails to dig through upon our return. Not to mention, we have some other features and reviews hanging out there that we plan to get to this week.
In the meantime — and before we completely, willingly say goodbye to summer — we want to re-visit August one last time with some of the most popular tracks that comprised our UMC20 playlists throughout the month. Give yourself a listen to these while we take a chance to catch up!

If you’re like most of us on this Thursday, you might have woken up this morning and thought to yourself, “Man, I could stand to start my day with some heavy pop punk, brought to me almost entirely by a band of puppets.”
If this sounds like you (and we know it does), you’ll want to get in here.
The Parkers have garnered accolades for their smoldering live show, which harnesses the sweaty-soaked punk rock energy inherent in the band’s vibe. Propelling the sisters forward live is dynamically explosive drummer and close family friend Henry Kane.
Select live performance highlights for The Parkers include appearances at Rocktoberfest; festivals such as MONDO.NYC and LAUNCH Music Conference; the Highline Ballroom; and even a show alongside Wu Tang Clan members and offspring. The group has garnered press accolades from ThatMusicMag.com, NJ.com, and have earned exposure for its stunning video for “Let’s Disappear.” The video garnered local awards, and was featured in the Millburn Film Festival (NJ) and The National Film Festival for Talented Youth in Seattle.
