UMC20: Packed with Girl Power (June 7, 2022)

In honor of tonight’s very special, very important Safe Haven Family Shelter benefit at LTH Coffee & Social (7113 Charlotte Ave., 6-9 p.m.), we’ve loaded this week’s UMC20 with female-fronted acts!

Not only have we included all eight of tonight’s performers but, of the 20 tracks on this week’s compilation,15 were released by women. That’s a whopping 75 percent of this week’s playlist! Girl power, indeed.

What more do we need to say? Let’s get into it!

UMC20: Bringing the Heat (May 10, 2022)

You had to know there’d be a weather pun, with summer making its first appearance of 2022 in Tennessee this week.

It’s also accurate, because (as always), we have your flavor of total fire on this week’s UMC20. Things get off to a hot start and keep burning — from hip hop, to metal, to folk, and all stops in between.

You know what time it is. Let’s go!

UMC20: New Music in Bloom (April 19, 2022)

Spring is a time for renewal, and we’ve refreshed our UMC20 playlist with 20 more vibrant tracks of all shapes and sizes.

It feels cliche, at this point. We always try to bring you variety here, and this week is certainly one of the stronger examples of that in 3 1/2 years of weekly UMC20 playlists. It’s also hard to believe we’ve almost been in Nashville for 3 1/2 years, but that’s a story for another day.

The story today? The sonic magnificence that awaits you below!

UMC20: Upcoming Performances, International Jams (April 12, 2022)

It’s a busy week around these parts. NashLive! has a couple shows — both in-person and virtual — and that’s always exciting. It also gives us plenty of tunes for UMC20.

That’s just part of the story, of course. We have artists spanning the globe featured this week, from as far away as New Zealand, as well as plenty right here at home. The genre spectrum is pretty well covered. All in all, this volume of UMC20 is surely memorable, and bound to have something you’ll want to replay over and over again.

Let’s get to it, then? Cool!

UMC20: The Best of March 2022

Can you believe that we’re already at the quarter pole of 2022?

It’s hard to believe that New Year’s Day is already three months behind us. Much has happened in the world since then, as it has in music.

We have a month’s worth of those musical happenings right here, rolled into a compilation that paints a beautiful picture of this wild and wonderful month. Get your fix of the Best of March below!

UMC20: Catching Up! (Mar. 22, 2022)

Things got a little busy around these parts last week, which is why we weren’t quite able to get you a fresh, hot batch of fire back on the 15th.

With that said, we think what we have for you on this week’s all-new UMC20 is worth the wait! We start off by rocking your world, before things get a bit more tender in the middle. Then, we have some pop anthems on tap before things get suuuuper experimental toward the end.

Ready to dive in? Same here. Let’s go!

UMC20: Brighter Days Are Ahead (March 1, 2022)

The sun is shining here in Nashville. Temps are on the rise. The long (yet short), arduous month of February is over. It appears as though spring is well on its way.

You know what else is always well on its way? Brand new music from independent artists near and far. And let us tell ya, we’ve got some choice cuts for you on this week’s UMC20. We rock hard, we vibe out, we get a little unorthodox, and then we bring it on home with some Americana.

This week’s playlist is what the wild, wonderful world of independent music is all about. Get acquainted below!

UMC20: The Best of February 2022

Today is Tuesday, 2/2/22. Just wanted to point that out…

It’s also the final Tuesday of the month, which means that it’s time for a recap of some of the month’s most fire jams. February may be a short month, but that doesn’t mean that it wasn’t packed with great cuts and, ultimately, some tough decisions as we narrowed things down for this month’s UMC20 Best Of.

Let us know how we did, when you listen after the jump!

UMC20: Love, Anti-Love, and Everything In Between (Feb. 15, 2022)

Given the time of year, we shouldn’t be surprised that we’ve received a bunch of Valentine’s Day — and anti-Valentine’s Day — submissions recently.

You’ll find a lot of those below. You’ll also find a nice multi-genre cross-section of where things stand in the world of independent music, as we journey from hip hop, to soul, to Americana, to rock throughout the course of this 20-song volume.

This is, without question, one of those “something for everyone” weeks of UMC20. Get after it!

UMC20: Gettin’ Alternative (Feb. 8, 2022)

If you like alternative — whether that’s rock or pop — get in here.

That’s the flavor of a lot of our recent submissions, so we’re going to give these tunes some shine! We also found a few out in the world that we’re digging, so we threw those into the mix, too.

It’s all here, and it’s all for you. Enjoy!
