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!
Track listing Artikal Sound System – Time The Spring – Victoria TIOGA – Break Me In Moonroof – Trojans Lion’s Mouth – High Achievers The Parasocial Club – Sunny Day Rayne and Jaki Nelson – High Wasted Evan Cline – Part of Me Seth Witcher – A Game of Love Elisabeth Beckwitt – Baggage Leah Voysey – Keep It to Yourself Max Swan – Steady Maria Hassel – Anxiety Kendal Conrad – Come to Your Senses Joseph Gallant – Better Buzz Stephanie Ryann – Travelers Burn the Treaty – Murky Moon Sky Kiki Halliday – American Tragedy Eric & the Soo – Goulais Bay Billy Bauer Band – Better Days
It’s probably a good time to mention that we’re going to be on vacation next week. So, aside from this being the last new UMC20 playlist of the month, it’s the last update period until September. We’ll hit you with the best of August when we get back the day after Labor Day.
(Don’t worry, though. We’re cooking up some fun for you while we’re gone. More on that later in the week!)
For those who may have missed the memo on Facebook… we’re not in Nashville this weekend. In fact, we’re back home, where this all started in Bethlehem, PA.
This is where Musikfest — the nation’s largest free outdoor music festival — is currently taking place. Back in the day — like, a year ago, even — we’d be all over this thing. All day. Every day. For 10 days every August, nobody played harder in the paint than us. Don’t even @ me, bruh. But if you do @ me, do it with style!
Granted, 800+ miles worth of distance has made doing that a little bit harder this year. But, when in Rome, we will do as the Romans used to do. Or, something like that.
That includes mapping out where you need to be today, if you’re in the same vicinity as us and want to hear some brilliant artists for the price of Free.99. Also, because it’s good to be back, we’re going to focus this solely on artists from the region we call home, to give you just a taste of the Keystone State’s best.
