Our latest Monthly Mix episode of the weekly podcast includes music from nine great Bay Area bands with a bunch of newly released CDs. About all of the bands:

We kicked off the show with a song from the always entertaining Battlehooch (“Take The L-Train”), off their brand new full length Piecechow, out June 15th. They’ll be at 111 Minna on Thursday, May 28th and their official LP release party is June 24th at Bottom of the Hill.

Oakland’s Dreamdate (“Have I Told You”) recently released their second album Patience on Skywriting Records. They’re on a West Coast tour through the first week of June.

Originally from Wisconsin, A B & The Sea (“Suzie”) were recently named “Best Beach Boys Worshippers of 2009” by the SF Weekly. The band — who have been working on a new album — will be at The Independent on June 5th.

Jonesin’ (“Rollerskates”) is the duo of Matt Jones from Master/Slave and Jenny Jones. Although there’s a lighter pop touch here, Matt’s love of vintage synths thankfully remains. Head to the band’s MySpace page for more.

Local indie poppers My First Earthquake (“Cool In The Cool Way”) release their first full length this month, entitled Downstairs. They’ll be celebrating with a CD release show on June 20th at Cafe Du Nord.

Disorganization Will Save Us All is the new EP from San Francisco-Oakland experimental rock band Raised By Robots (“Dinner Pill”). They’ll be at Grant and Green on May 28th and the Red Devil Lounge on June 23rd.

Featuring members of Replicator, Mount Vicious (“Steroid Unicorn”) released their debut EP Leather Beer Caddy in April and you can download it for free at Bandcamp. They’ll embark on a month-long tour of the US in July and have a full length debut coming out in August.

Assemble Head In Sunburst Sound (“Two Birds”) recently released their third psych rock LP When Sweet Sleep Returned on Tee Pee Records. The band will be at the Great American Music Hall on June 19th.

The power-pop of Cartographer (“Love Triangle For Two”) garnered strong reviews for the band’s self-titled 2008 debut. Although the band doesn’t have any dates currently scheduled, we’ll keep you updated on any new developments.
