UMC20: The Best of January 2023

Last day of the month! Last Tuesday of the month!

Last chance to hit you with the Best of January!

We have a growing multitude of reasons to be excited about 2023 here at UMC. Certainly, the strong musical opening statement provided by you, the independent artists of planet Earth, is among them.

Let’s keep up the good work, y’all! In the meantime, dive into some memorable tracks from throughout the month.

Hear the Best of January

UMC20: Picking Up Steam (Jan. 10, 2023)

It seems like everyone is beginning to awaken from their holiday-induced winter slumber. We’ve certainly been busy over here at UMC, and from the looks of it, plenty of musicians in our orbit are, too. For one thing, this week is set to be a big one for releases, and you’ll surely hear some of those in this space this time next week.

But… let’s not get ahead of ourselves, because we have plenty of fire to keep you warm in the meantime. What do you say we get right to it?

P.S.: If you look at the bottom of the track listing, you might see a clue about our first NashLive! show announcement of the year… 😉

UMC50: 50 Memorable Songs from 2022

Folks, it’s finally here. The day has arrived.

Today, we narrow down the entire year to just 50 songs.

And, let me tell ya, it was a tall task. You’ve brought the heat to us consistently, and there were close calls and tough decisions throughout. We also had to factor in variety — we ensured that as many genres and flavors were represented as possible, to showcase the musical kaleidoscope that is the UMC community.

We hope you enjoy what we have for you on this year’s compilation. Check it out!

Let’s go! Listen to UMC50!

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: The Best of October 2022

We love it when you make it tough on us. That means it’s been a good month.

Independent musicians of the world brought the heat all month long, and you should all be proud of yourselves for doing such high-quality work. Our UMC20 Best of October compilation is but a sample of the many sonic landscapes we admired this month. We invite you to take them in alongside us!
