This week’s podcast is our latest monthly mix episode, featuring new music, recent music and otherwise excellent music from seven Bay Area bands and one from the Central Valley. More information about all of the bands below:

Blue Rabbit (“Separate”) recently released their debut EP Separate digitally and the title track is some great rolling cello-pop. You can pick it up at their MySpace page, and can see the San Francisco folk-rockers on October 19th at the Fiesta on the Hill.

French Miami (“Multi Caliber Rifles”) killed it at the Rock Make Street Festival, and we’re excited for their upcoming full length release. You can see them on September 28th at the Hemlock Tavern and October 3th at the Uptown.

Punk-noise-poppers Pidgeon (“California

[Is For Fuckers]”) told us the name of their new album Might As Well Go Eat Worms when we interviewed them two-and-a-half years ago. The album’s finally out today on Absolutely Kosher and you can next catch the band on October 18th at Thee Parkside.

San Francisco psych folk-rock septet Big Light (“Hard Knocks”) released their debut EP earlier this summer and began a monthly residency at 12 Galaxies shortly before the club folded. The band’s next show is October 9th at Ashkenaz in Berkeley.

The Lonelyhearts (“Harlequin Bands”) are a real favorite around here, so we’re excited for their new album Disaster Footage At Night. The band currently doesn’t have any Bay Area shows scheduled, but the album’s available now from Three Ring Records.

We’re also pleased to include a song from Moomaw‘s (“March”) album 26, in which one song was written every month of his twenty-sixth year. You can see him September 23rd at the Hemlock Tavern before he heads on a cross-country tour.

Experimental folk-punk trio Little Teeth (“Japanese Candy”) recently released their debut album Child Bearing Man and the band’s now embarking on a national tour. You can find all of their upcoming dates on their MySpace page.

Fresno’s Rademacher (“Need Nobody”) release their brand new ERA EP next week. It’s a more stripped down and folksie release for the band, who you can next see on October 29th at The Knockout.
