Yuriy Gnatkovsky, Ulia Lord. Snizhnist'. Muzyka zymovyh svjat. (Snowiness. Music of Winter Holidays)
(item from the "Rare Discs" section)
Personally I have been looking forward to this music starting from the past winter. Actually, I did not know what exactly I should expect – I only knew that it must be something light, bright, beautiful. And – that there must be an aftertaste of jazz. From the very beginning, the issue was not just music – but the action, performance, space. All of that has not yet been implemented in one, thus now we are in the position to obtain music only. I all the same hope that the rest will appear very soon as well – let’s wait, and for a while let’s go back to music. In addition to all the rest, it was interesting for me to hear how Yulia Lord would show herself here – after the bright, loud debut appearance on the large scene, she disappeared for a few years. Thus, this project is her first appearance after the very long period of silence. I think she will not disappoint us – and she will for sure surprise, because Yuri Gnatkovsky does something quite different, not in line with the general massive of Ukrainian pop and rock music. But – yes, it is light, and bright, and beautiful, and with a taste of jazz. The taste is, actually, not weak – because half of compositions of the album are based on old, known, classic jazz plays. And the other half are well stylized to match with this atmosphere. And – Ukrainian poetry. Yes, this music accompanies original Ukrainian poems, not translations. In fact, one of the primary objectives of the project declared by Yuri Gnatkovsky is – "to enchant people with the Ukrainian language, and to fill winter holidays with new aesthetics". I am not a critic, therefore I will not assess it critically. But I will say that the disk has appeared not just interesting, but – successful. It has the fragrance of, simultaneously, freshness – and warmth, and lightness – and saturation. And, the main thing, – goodwill. I think that it will become a beautiful decoration of any days – not only festive, not only winter ones.

Dilya, Orest Krysa. 22. /digi-pack/.


..this is why the album has turned out very easily presented. With the unobtrusive simplicity that knows how to avoid primitivism. Due to this, the lyrics do not get lost in the arrangements – which also matters, because a lot of truly cool, and sometimes – already classical – poems were set to music here.

Panivalkova. Dontvori. /premium, eco-pack/. (Don't Worry)


..One can simply enjoy the concise arrangements with colorful spices. Or one can discover in these melodies, intonations, and pauses styling on the verge of grotesque. Or – one can hear stories that it is impossible to tell in any other way than this. Sentimental and ironic. And ask: why?

Odyn v kanoe. Odyn v kanoe. (2CD). /digi-pack/.


..the debut album by "Odyn V Kanoe." At one breath, on one wave, unhurriedly and swiftly at the same time. This band managed to somehow unobtrusively enter the group of quiet sensations in the Ukrainian scene of recent years. What is the secret? Maybe, the depth of the eyes and no masks..
Domestic price: 260.73UAH, International price: $23.92USD

Pravytsya. Kryvy tanets. /digi-pack/. (Crooked Dance)


"Pravytsya" do not limit themselves to a certain style – in their interpretations one can hear jazz, blues, soul, rock aspects, even the Ukrainian country music in the Irish style. Without unnecessary extravagance, but fancy – and, at the same time, I would say, very cautious..
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Ocheretyany Kit. Dvadtsiat krokiv. /book+CD/. (Twenty Steps)


..So, this book/album is also a small gallery, a combination of various arts as an attempt to achieve the magical effect of transfer of "reed worlds", and not only. In this search for the miraculous, we have tried to find our path over the 20 years – in 20 steps – towards something larger and better.
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Ocheretyany Kit. Dvadtsiat krokiv. /digi-pack/. (Twenty Steps)


..it is absence of didacticism in the lyrics and of any mention of magic, as opposed to the skill of noticing the details that make up the everyday life – but noticing in a way that the listener slightly shifts the "assembly point". The reality's magic is routine, this is what one can hear and feel here at full force.

Oneyroid. Khoden'. /digi-pack/.


This is music with its own identity. And it's not only about interesting arrangements – listen to the lyrics: this is not simulation of rural folklore, this is its urban rethinking, but not limited to the city. Somewhere there, a universal key to the roots reside...

Vasya Club, Vasyl Hontarsky. Hipan. (anniversary edition). /digi-pack/. (Hipster)


An anniversary  (10 years since the release) re-issue on CD of one of the most prominent Ukrainian rock albums. For the sake of this release, complete re-mastering of the material from the original master tapes was performed – and the original author design was restored.

Propala Hramota. Chudernatska syla. /eco-pack/. (Freakish Power)


It was planned that this disc would only be sold at concerts, but now "Freakish Power" can encounter us anywhere and anytime, and this is – incredibly good. Another fragrant brick for Podillya foundation... I sincerely advise you to cast away umbrellas and the rest of protection means – otherwise there is the risk of just failing to contain.

TaRuta. Narodzheni v LYUBOVI. /digi-pack/. (Born in LOVE)


11 tracks, but they are somehow so saturated and diverse that it may seem there are twice more of them. First, there are both author's and folk texts there – and some author's ones really resemble folk songs, this is a compliment.. And second – within one album, actually, three manners and ways of performing are mixed: skilful "folk" singing, powerful ethno-rock and the "acoustics"..
Domestic price: 166.55UAH, International price: $15.28USD

Hurt Mandrivnykh Dyakiv "Vertep". Spivanyk. (Songbook)


Actually, "Songbook" can be described with one word – "fusion" – but only because this word has such an extensive, universal meaning today that it covers, well, virtually everything. And "Songbook" is like that – universal. Music interpretation of the material in this album – deserves respect. Literally every song really vibrates and sounds.
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Hurt Mandrivnykh Dyakiv "Vertep". VirshOspivy. /digi-pack/. (PoemSongs)


Simple and bright: the group set to music the poetry of a two dozens of the most interesting Ukrainian modern authors, a half of poems performed by the authors themselves. The project succeeded, truly, as Vertep didn’t set themselves any limits in style, here, apparently, a light tint of jazz..
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Propala Hramota. Honor. (Pride)


I would not like to speak here in a lot of detail about the ability to combine the green with the hot, and the fretted with the tart – these specific features have acquired even more expressive outlines from the times of the debut disc. Propala Hramota boldly creates modern folklore – do not be too lazy to listen to the lyrics, this is a really important decoration of every song.
Domestic price: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Trychi. PoNeDilOK. /digi-pack/


It took about two years for this triple union to finally ripen – and, justifying all expectations, the drink has appeared really interesting and decent. You cannot gulp it in one go to forget the next instant – no, here you will want to savor, to come back repeatedly. And attractiveness of this music in that it lives on the border among absolutely different styles, takes something from each but belongs to none of them in full.
Domestic price: 206.23UAH, International price: $18.92USD

Propala Hramota. Tseyvo. (Sorta)


Here it is – real, serious, exact. You know, about such dicks one is both eager and reluctant to speak – they bend to one's soul with their curves so that words become almost superfluous. But it is also desirable to keep quiet about such things only eye-to-eye, in order to by all means share one's feeling, warmth, acceptance.
Domestic price: 122.95UAH, International price: $11.28USD

U.RA. Radiosny. (RadioDreams)


It is as if a linen string, on which times and feelings, dreams and ways are strung as if pearls. This necklace sparkles softly, and in it there are as many secrets as beauty...
Domestic price: 112.05UAH, International price: $10.28USD

Hurt Mandrivnykh Dyakiv "Vertep". Buchalchyn gandzh.


The group offers to us radiant, expressive pictures. They masterfully implement the style eclecticism in the music line – it became the background for poetry both varied and transparent. Moreover, the whole album is penetrated with kind humor.
Domestic price: 122.95UAH, International price: $11.28USD

Kozak System. Ne moya. /digi-pack/. (Not Mine)


The third album by Kozak System has happened to be the most lyrical one. Not least, sure, due to authors of the lyrics – and they are Symonenko, Zhadan, Polozhynsky (Tartak)... "Not Mine", by and large, is an album of ballads – different in dynamics but united by the cross-cutting loss-contemplation-hope motive. Or – by an attempt to accept and, thus, let go..
Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Hycz Orkestr. Tsilyi. /eco-pack, premium edition/. (Whole)


HYCZ Orchestra are intelligent hooligans who manage to implement sometimes non-obvious musical ideas in an elegant and obviously quite simple way. But this simplicity is a consequence of technical skills, creative freedom, tact and taste, so fragrant surprises can be found in almost every song of "Whole" album, the potency of it is okay.
Domestic price: 133.85UAH, International price: $12.28USD

Serhiy Shyshkin. Zapadenska zyma, vesna, lito... /digi-pack/. (Winter, Spring, and Summer from the West...)


There is, you know, a specific kind of songs –almost calm apparently, but with a powerful internal drive. Sure, if you listen to the lyrics..
Domestic price: 101.15UAH, International price: $9.28USD

Serhiy Shyshkin. Myslyacha lyudyna. /digi-pack/. (Reasoning Individual)


..For all of us sometimes need simple things, in which one can see a clear reflection of this complex world. However, Serhiy Shyshkin's songs are not that simple – but there is no posing to trick one's eyes, so everything looks crisp and clear. Ironic, sad, hard, just smiley – everything is here...
Domestic price: 101.15UAH, International price: $9.28USD

Victor Morozov, Chetvertyy kut. Armija Svitla. (Army of Light)


...the album again suggests the idea that the war for independence of Ukraine that started dozens of years ago – lasts till now. And now even more than ever before it is opposition of identities – because external, political and geographic independence is worth nothing unless it is founded on internal freedom. To quote the song – "...to be oneself and to be proud".
Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Victor Morozov, Chetvertyy kut. Treba vstaty i vyjty. (Stand up and leave)


This time the songs of Kostya Moskalets will sound. Is there any need to remind you that today he is considered to be one of the best Ukrainian poet...
Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Taras Chubay, Plach Yeremiji. Svitlo i spovid'. (Light and Confession)


"Light and confession" – this is aspiration for renewal of feedback between me and my Father, between present generation and the generation of 1970-s", Taras Chubaj exposes the sacral content of the album.
