Marcelo Radulovich has a new release this week, Insomnia Party Feathers, issued under the moniker Son of Radul. “It hops around various genres, instruments, and languages, with six songs in English, six in Spanish, and three instrumentals,” Radulovich says. “I played all the instruments and sang all the voices, as well as recording and producing. You can say Prince was a big influence on me.”

The release party for More Dirt Less Seawater, the second EP from experimental doom-metal band Kalashnikov My Wife, happens June 3 at Soda Bar. “Most of the album was inspired by a one-armed man who sailed in the Baltic with my grandfather,” says singer/guitarist Petro Halkowycz. “It’s said that they met their end after they happened upon a kraken. Hence the need for more dirt and less seawater. It’s safer on land. Unless you’re eaten by a lion.”
