Wolves of Eden features guitarist Jason Rain, a Berklee alum who did time in L.A. groups before moving to San Diego. “The band specializes in orchestral arrangements of electronic sounds with epic rock riffs and bluesy, groveling guitar and vocals,” Rain says. A self-titled debut EP, featuring a cover of Jeff Buckley’s “Nightmares by the Sea,” drops March 31.

Marcelo Radulovich is developing new material for live performances as Son of Radul, which he describes as “a cool, fat blend of electronics, guitar, and voice, [with] lots of beats and slow, ultra moody spaces.” The project debuts March 22 at the Merrow.

The Hiroshima Mockingbirds features two members of the New Kinetics: guitarist Brian Reilly and drummer Jon Bonser (also known from Soft Lions).

Spirit Club — with Nathan Williams (Wavves), Joel Williams (D/Wolves, TV Girl), and Andrew Caddick (Jeans Wilder) — will soon drop their debut full-length via the Ghost Ramp label, promoted by a video for “Still Life” directed by Jacob Turnbloom (Mrs. Magician and First Wave Hello). Casino Royale, a new acoustic trio featuring two Shambles (Reader contributor Bart Mendoza and David Fleminger) alongside Normandie Wilson, appears April 10 at Java Joe’s.

We must also bid a fond farewell: “hardcore strike force” Kodiak’s final show happens February 27 at Soda Bar on a bill that includes Deep Sea Thunder Beast and Griever (which will debut their new record).
