As we predicted last week, the sheer volume of new, very good music April had in store for us made compiling this list quite an undertaking.

It doesn’t promise to get any easier in May, either, considering all of the music that has already been released, after the April UMC20 cutoff.

At any rate, we had to get this down to 20. So, we wound it down to the tracks that seemed to resonate the most with our audience on the ol’ socials, while representing the month’s three unique playlists equally, and trying to provide you with the variety you’ve come to know and love from UMC20. There were definitely selections we love that we were unable to include, but… such is the cruel reality of trying to squeeze a single month’s worth of music into a 20-song playlist.

Regardless, this month’s “Best Of” compilation was crafted with love, and we hope you’ll enjoy it!
