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: Every Wednesday in July (July 20, 2022)

Tuesdays have been especially productive around here lately — so productive, that it’s taken us an extra day each week in July to compile the week’s UMC20 playlist.

Like its predecessor, this one’s worth the wait. It starts off with some raucous rock and roll (and gives a nod to this week’s NashLive! show at The 5 Spot), then heads into alternative, hip hop, and pop territory. We crossfade from pop into country, and finish it off with a solid helping of soul.

Find some new favorite tunes 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: 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: The Best Way to Begin February (Feb. 1, 2022)

January may have felt like it took forever. At least, that’s the sentiment among a lot of the folks in our circle.

The good news? It’s over now, and we’re on to February, which is 1) the shortest month on the calendar and 2) the last full month of winter. We can already feel life returning to the Earth and musical landscape here in Nashville. We can’t wait to see and hear what happens when 2022 truly kicks into high gear.

So, let’s kick it up a notch. We had some new submissions to consider, and we’re using some real estate here to shine a light on this month’s upcoming NashLive! shows. Through it all, we’ve certainly got some fresh finds, and they’re here for you below!

UMC20: The Best of January 2022

It’s the last Tuesday of the first month of 2022, which means it’s time to bring you the month’s hottest fire.

January brought plenty of fun to us — and not just on Sunday Funday. The year’s opening statement was a strong one, and proved that people are coming to play in 2022 — and hopefully, more and more artists will find themselves able to come out and play live, as long as ‘rona doesn’t get in the way.

We’ll remember January 2022 as an exciting start to the year. Hear why we feel that way below!

UMC20: The Best of November 2021

Welp… we’ve almost made it to the end of another year together. And today, we’ve made it to the end of another month.

So, let’s celebrate as we typically do around here — by recapping some of the best and brightest tracks the past 30 days have had to offer. It’s tough to narrow this down every month, but November presented a particular challenge. There were so many unique and interesting cuts, but only room for 20. Difficult choices were made.

See (and hear) if you enjoy the choices we made below. We think you will!
