Terry Pratchett. Pravda. (The Truth)


"The Truth" is one of the most outstanding non-cycle works in the Discworld series. The fine line between facts and rumors, jokes and allusions closely intertwine "The Truth" with contemporary realities and create the masterful satire of the information sector and the society as a whole.

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.

Jorge Luis Borges. Knyha vyhadanykh istot. (Book of Imaginary Beings)


This is a refined tangle of truth and fiction, legends and fantasies, quotations and facts, authenticity of which one should not even try to figure out. After all, Borges' reality is that we agree to consider such. The work of art, written in the form of an encyclopedia, has been captivating, intriguing, and encouraging reflections of fans of mystifications for more than half a century now.

Boombox. Holy korol. (EP). /premium, eco-pack/. (Naked King)


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..

Andrzej Sapkowski. Vidmak. Book 8. Sezon hroz. (The Witcher. Season of Storms)


Andrzej Sapkowski's magic is about his skill of creating a fantasy world in a lyrical and sarcastic way, where every inhabitant, every place, and every event are so indicative of the real, contemporary world, that it is impossible to stop reading the books.

Tina Karol. Intonatsii. /mini-pack/. (Intonations)


This album is a response to expectations of everyone who realized that Tina Karol was capable of much more than what she had so far demonstrated. Stuff of that kind was something that not only Tina, but the entire Ukrainian "first echelon pop scene" missed. A test (for herself and her habitual audience), a pilot..

Yvan Kozlenko. Tangier.


...this is the other Odesa, without the knick-knackery of the eternal witty joker and hack gangster thrown on it by Soviet and post-Soviet pop culture. The city of beautiful nakedness of beaches, dimness of bars and clubs, the city of Dovzhenko and Yanovsky, the Ukrainian revolution and freedom, the city of love and creativity that know no boundaries.

Several pieces in the beginning are just about how it was before. And then – you catches yourself thinking: no, this is not ragtime – but a clear echo, and the figure of a ballroom pianist emerges in your imagination.. And then – you discover that it was the beginning, because the music departs from the shore of abstract lyricism and starts its travel throughout the world..

Oksana Zabuzhko. Shevchenkiv mif Ukrainy Oksany Zabuzhko ta yoho krytyky. (Shevchenko's Myth of Ukraine by Oksana Zabuzhko and Its Critics)


The book "Shevchenko's Myth of Ukraine" was first published in 1997 and produced the effect of a bomb in the Ukrainian literary studies. The author's method of interpretation of classical texts scandalized followers of the Great Kobzar's canon, and the discussion quickly turned into a "battle for holy things." Now, from the distance of twenty year...

KRUT. Arche. /digi-pack/.


..a full-fledged author album wrapped around the bandura so that the music intertwines several styles, from jazz and soul to blues and pop funk. Thus, "Arche" appeals not only (and not so much) to the Ukrainian tradition: it is an attempt to break stereotypes and at a dialog of cultures. A worthy attempt and vivid dialog.

Martin Pollack. Do Halychyny. About Hasids, Hutsuls, Poles, and Rusyns. (To Galicia)


..the first book where the writer dispels the Austrian "sugar" myth. His imaginary journey passes through Eastern Galicia – the landscapes where oil tycoons and miracle working rabbis grotesquely coexist with poor Jewish shtetls, where people barely survive in the corrupt region, where a multilingual cultural mosaic is being created simultaneously and fine literature is being written.
