Our latest Monthly Mix episode of the weekly podcast includes music from ten great Bay Area bands — some submissions we’ve received at TBB headquarters, some stuff we’ve posted on the web site recently, all really good stuff.
About this week’s bands:
Once episode opener Port O’Brien (“My Will Is Good”) returns from Europe, they’ll be heading on a national tour to support their upcoming album, Threadbare. The new release is out October 6th on TBD Records.
A member of the now-defunct The Wayside State, Erin Brazill (“Speak Easy”) recently released her solo EP Speak Easy. She’ll be at the Eat Real Festival on August 30th and the Rickshaw Stop on September 16th.
Tiny Television (“Hallelujah”) bandleader Jeremy Dâ€™Antonio relocated to SF from Denver last year. They played a great set at the Rock Make pre-party over the weekend and released Mission Statement earlier this summer.
Ghetto Kool-Aid is the debut EP from Emeryville duo The Black Pandas (“Amsterdam”). They’ll be playing at the Folsom Street Fair on September 27th.
Butterfly Bones (“XOXO”) are currently embarking on a cross-country house-party-packed tour. The quartet’s catchy new EP is called Pretty Feelings.
It felt incomplete to do our latest mix show without including this great remix from Music For Animals (“Nervous in New York [Wallpaper. Remix”]), who once again delivered an amazing performance at Rock Make 2009. Catch them at the Boom Boom Room on Friday, September 4th.
San Francisco indie rock quartet Wave Array (“Future Tense”) release their debut full length Cheapjack Moon this week. They’re celebrating this Friday, August 28th at Cafe Du Nord.
Sleepy Todd (“Song For Friends Who Fall Down Stairs”) is a local singer-songwriter I know little about other than that he writes some very good songs. You can download Sleepy Todd Songs for free from Fuzzhouse.Tags: Butterfly Bones, Casy & Brian, Erin Brazill, Music for Animals, Port O'Brien, Sleepy Todd, Sonya Cotton, The Black Pandas, Tiny Television, Wave Array
