This week we’re bringing you our latest Monthly Mix, featuring new and unreleased tracks from eight great local bands! Check out the details on all of the groups below:

We Is Shore Dedicated (“Gladiator Cointoss”) open the episode with a song from their latest album Rainbo Donuts. The group is a studio project featuring Sam Tsitrin (The Ebb & Flow) and Chris Cline (Scrabbel) among other talented local musicians.

Psych-folk group Dame Satan (“Suffrin’ Daughter”) just released their new album Beaches & Bridges, which they are streaming in its entirety here. The band will be opening for Dead Meadow at Slim’s on May 24th. They’re also part of Ghost Mansion Records, which we recently profiled here.

We’re still really digging the CD we received from Maus Haus (“We Used Technology (but Technology Let Us Down)”), the indie supergroup who we’ve profiled and seen live. You can catch them on May 8th at the Hemlock Tavern.

Indie pop trio Raccoons (“In The Cavernous Halls”) gave us a terrific track from their latest demos. They will be playing on May 9th at the Retox Lounge.

San Francisco folk group Toromiro (“I Am Important”) contribute a track off their EP 1, which you can pick up here. They don’t have any shows lined up, so keep checking their web site for more options.

Railcars (“There Is Ice; It Is Blue”) is the new name of the synth-rock band fronted by Aria C Jalali. Building on the success of Jalali’s Postmodernism! EP, the band will be recording a new album with Xiu Xiu’s Jamie Stewart over the summer. Catch the band next at the Hotel Utah on May 14th.

Built for the Sea (“Release”) bring us a song off the new Volume 2 compilation from local band collective The Rose Hill Collective. They’ll be joining other members in celebrating the comp’s release at the Great American Music Hall on May 17th.

“Panic-skiffle” group Hank IV (“Hole in my Eye”) head to Tim Green’s Louder Studios soon to record the follow-up to their Third Person Shooter album. They’ll be playing at the Vert Ramp Warehouse on May 3rd and The Knockout on May 7th.

Thanks for listening!
