Brutto. Roki. /digi-pack/. (Rocky)


Life is hard – and these songs will not help one escape. On the contrary – they will help one to face it standing straight, looking it in the eye. "Fight for her", Zhadan wrote once. She is – the land, the destiny, the blood, the freedom.. The love, sure – with all the abysses and apexes of its meanings. The album sounds like a clenched fist, until the last track..

Merva. Shaman. /digi-pack/.


..despite the relatively exotic terminology, these songs focus on such simple and complex, fundamental things in their inclusiveness: Life. Death. The path. The forest of ideas. In the album "Shaman", Merva weaves densely – and amplifies this with the corresponding sound range, which by no means inspires relaxation.

The Elephants. Colors. /premium, eco-pack/.


Brevity, clarity of lines, softness of accents – sometimes even on the edge of being toylike. Transparent, like light shade. Add a bit of a bare nerve – and this would be "disruption" music, but for the time being The Elephants offer indie-pop-tronic with elements of fabulousness. And they do it so that one wants to believe it.

Regarding songs by Boombox, it has always been interesting to listen to the lyrics – among other things, due to their disposition to (and the ability of) playfulness. But the further, the less verbal balancing they contain – but more poignant senses, refined formulas, comprehensive observations. The new (mini)album "Naked King" is a very vivid evidence of that..

Bohdan Zholdak can be definitely referred to as the most cheerful prose writer of the contemporary Ukrainian literature – a brilliant narrator, an unsurpassed reproducer of the lively folk dialect with its amazing phonetics and "surzhik". He is also a magnificent master of lies: one believes Zholdak's stories about Hitler or Stalin unconditionally, despite the complete understanding of their absurdity...
