UMC20: The Best of November 2022

How is it already the end of November?

That means 2022 is almost over. That means the holiday season is officially in full swing. That also means that it’s time for another monthly UMC20 Best Of compilation.

Lots of tough choices were made, but overall, we think we’ve put together a nice representation of how stellar November 2022 has been. You be the judge!

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: 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: High Energy, Cool Vibes, Stellar Storytelling (Sept. 13, 2022)

There is no shortage of exciting new sounds to be heard on this week’s edition of UMC20.

From high-powered pop punk bangers, to cool hip hop and R&B vibes, to the storytelling spirit of Americana, this one has it all. We’ve even snuck in tunes from artists on our next couple NashLive! lineups, just for fun.

All told, this week’s playlist is designed to give you something you’ll love. What are you waiting for? Get in there!

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: The Best of August 2022

We’ve had a multitude of adventures this month on the way to landing on the UMC20 Best of August. We even had a guest curator step in one week (thanks, Jenna!).

The end result? 20 different perspectives, informed by genre, life experience, and the tastes of multiple curators, mixed up into a musical gumbo pot and best served hot.

UMC20: Upcoming Shows, Interview Guests, and More (Aug. 2, 2022)

We have so much to get to with this week’s edition of UMC20, and that includes providing clues about what’s coming down the pike in the near future.

We have upcoming (and previous) Quinn Spinn guests featured here, as well as artists set for forthcoming NashLive! shows this fall. We have submissions from multiple different continents and, of course, we touch as many genres as possible across these 20 tracks.

Sound exciting to you? Good, because it does to us. Let’s go!
