Somewhere between the gypsy-punk of Gogol Bordello and the blatnaya pesnya (criminal's songs) of Russian Chanson lies local band Nuthatch-47. Its laughable lyrics, world beats and folky melodies are a fresh Kansas City sound. (See "Russian Gangster's Grandma.")

Frontman Max Kunakhovich has begun a new side project called POL-KILO, which means "half a kilo" in English. "It's a media project of some sorts. It has no genre really. It has a minimalistic sound, and it is not just a song -- more of a song + video," says Kunakhovich.

Made up of Dan Hrenchir (banjo/balalaika), Jake Gronbeck (drums) and Jeff Bowski Cowan (bass), Kunakhovich calls POL-KILO "a creative playground where the idea is to make SIMPLE music with a SIMPLE tune and video." In true collaborative nature, POL-KILO hopes to invite other local musicians to join in their efforts.

Here is their latest video for the song, "iReckon."
