The Hardkiss. Akustyka. /premium, eco-pack/. (Acoustic)
Concert albums always give one a chance to touch familiar music at a slightly different angle. And in this case it is even more interesting, because The Hardkiss present an acoustic concert. Those very The Hardkiss that a few years ago confidently occupied the hard pop niche in the Ukrainian scene. But it turns out that they can perform their songs as an "acoustic version" and that sounds powerful. However, the "Acoustic" program did not still become a full-fledged unplugged it is by no means ascetic performance. The concert was also complemented by a group of strings, winds, percussion in short, the sound turns out somewhat unexpected and very rich, the arrangements could not remain unchanged either. The habitual drive has not disappeared, though, it has shifted to a slightly different plane. This recording can hardly be seen as truly intimate in the sense of chamber performance, but the fact that it is able to significantly refresh perception of The Hardkiss, make melodies and intonations more expressed that is a fact.

This program was recorded during concerts in Kyiv on November 3 and 4, 2019.

The album is executed as a digi-pack enclosed in a craft cardboard box, the disc is inserted into a special pocket cut in the shape of a mountain ridge. The release contains an 8-page booklet with the musicians' concert photos.

The Hardkiss. Zalizna lastivka. /digi-pack/. (The Iron Swallow)


After release of the song "Zhuravli", it became clear: some inner turn should be expected from The Hardkiss. Because it was something quite unexpected. Tender and transparent but also deep, penetrating, and conscious of its own power. And the premonition tuned out right, the album "The Iron Swallow" is really a step forward in several directions at once..

Latexfauna. Ajahuaska. /digi-pack/.


The impressive dream-pop, full of strange reveries and clear dreams; the pretty languidness on the verge of indifference in their performance manner; somewhat bizarre but sincere texts, where entirely native landscapes and conflicts loom behind unexpected, sometimes exotic picture...

the Maneken. Sale%. /premium, eco-pack/.


Given the amount of work that Filatov is doing for a number of other performers, it is even surprising that he has enough energy and inspiration for his own project. However he has enough. Enough energy, and imagination, and taste. Always in motion, in the process of development, always better than before or, at least, different. The new album is an excellent illustration of this vector.
Domestic price: 152.90UAH, International price: $13.90USD

The Hardkiss. Perfection Is a Lie. /premium, eco-pack/.


..Even in the ballads this inner power cannot be hidden, it can be perceived almost physically. Perfection is a lie, of course but nobody forbids strive and work for it. The Hardkiss is obviously one of those who aspire and work hard.
Domestic price: 163.90UAH, International price: $14.90USD

Alloise. Episodes. /digi-pack/.


Sure, "Episodes" is pop music, but it is also sure to be intelligent pop-music, multi-layered, and interesting. That lives somewhere on the edge and thus it is capable of transforming its audience. If you wish, dark pop. The promise of taking through the darkness and bringing into something new it is there.

Green Grey. WTF?! Dubrock. /digi-pack/.


When a couple of years ago Green Grey released their new album after a long silence it was like a small miracle, the hidden core of which was the question: what's next? The answer is here. The bile of experience, but, surprisingly, without the bitterness habitual in such cases. The answer is movement.

Tonya Matvienko. ANTONINA project. /digi-pack/.


The basis for this experiment was recordings of singing by Tonya Matvienko's granny Antonina made 40 years ago. Due to digitalization of the records Tonya is actually singing as a duet with her grandmother... However, this is not the only amusing thing about the project: the music component appears quite far from simple dance and variety rails.

Jamala. Podykh. /digi-pack/. (Breath)


..It is amazing how this voice is revealed in the thirteen steps of the quiet power. "Breath" is a soft and strong, weightless and confident, fragrant and unobtrusive album. Cool.
Domestic price: 152.90UAH, International price: $13.90USD

The Hardkiss. Stones and Honey. (re-edition). /digi-pack/.


..it is clear this was a considerable piece of work but it is the "work" that you actually don't hear. One can hear clear energy, passion, and the ability to present simple lines in a truly delicious way. However, not all the arrangements are that straightforward and, given the "lightness" of the genre, this approach especially pleases.
Domestic price: 152.90UAH, International price: $13.90USD

Ivan Dorn. Randorn. /premium, digi-pack/.


..it is difficult to explain magic and there is some of it, and one does not need to be an apologist of relevance to feel it. Ivan Dorn and his friends produce true pop music lightweight, smart, eclectic, and specific. Young. With genuine charm. Cool, nothing to say...

Alex Nademski, ILLaria. Podykh. /digi-pack/. (Breath)


It is Alex Nademski who is the author of the project and, in particular, of all the lyrics and the music (although he says he only recorded what came to him). ILLaria is a "guest star," the voice. Still, when one listens, it's hard to say whose role is the leading one the both worked at their full capacity, that's sure.
Domestic price: 174.90UAH, International price: $15.90USD

Green Grey. Glaz leoparda. /digi-pack/. (The Leopard's Eye)


Green Grey decided not to abandon the combination of electronic music with rock aesthetics though, now there is somehow more of the latter, so one can hardly attribute this music to the light one. The elements of dubstep and hardcore are far not the only ones in this puzzle...
Domestic price: 196.90UAH, International price: $17.90USD

Skryabin. 25. /digi-pack/.


The album with this name is perceived as a certain summary but actually it is not. It is, rather, a sort of a response to the present domestic and international challenges and hope for continuation. Actually, now the direct quote:...
Domestic price: 130.90UAH, International price: $11.90USD

Dazzle Dreams. Diva. /digi-pack/.


..this is a step towards club music that is absolutely able to live outside of clubs an attempt to hint at something more meaningful than just mysterious entourage. An attempt is successful there is the style, there is the taste. Finally, the new album to some extent may be considered as a return to aesthetics of the first album...
Domestic price: 119.90UAH, International price: $10.90USD

the Maneken. Soulmate Sublime. /digi-pack/.


The Maneken is a unique artist who works in one of the most trendy areas of the contemporary music the electronic rock. Using music styles as "clothes" for decoration of his music ideas, he has created several unique "collections", which have its fans not only in CIS countries, but also in Europe and the USA.
Domestic price: 152.90UAH, International price: $13.90USD

Skryabin. Kazky. (re-edition). /digi-pack/. (Fairy-Tales)


...just look at the list of songs the album appeared truly a hit one, the majority of these songs are still alive. Actually, lots of people considered exactly this album a quintessence of the "classic" Skryabin both due to the music nature, and the semantic content of the lyrics.
Domestic price: 130.90UAH, International price: $11.90USD

Skryabin. Ptakhy. (re-edition). /digi-pack/. (Birds)


...the first officially released album by Skryabin. The album, due to which Skryabin for the first time loudly announced themselves all over Ukraine...
Domestic price: 130.90UAH, International price: $11.90USD

Dazzle Dreams. (Go! Go! Go!) Disco killers.


...the second album by Dazzle Dreams is a bright experiment in the domain of dance music. Because, honestly speaking, this dance music can be considered rather highbrow one at all events, the desire to move often yields to the desire to just listen attentively. However, it surprisingly does not reduce the general drive charge of the album simply shifts it to some other, not so habitual plane.
Domestic price: 130.90UAH, International price: $11.90USD

Luk. Mamyna junost. /digi-pack/. (Mother's Youth)


...this must be the most accomplished album by the group. Not a single superfluous sound, clear and precise lines at presence of abundant disseminations of various styles and at that they have succeeded in preserving the recognizable manner the real sun splashes cocktail, light and tart. And after that, there should be something absolutely different...
Domestic price: 152.90UAH, International price: $13.90USD

Stelsi. Tovarystvo z bezmezhnoju bezvidpovidalnistju. (Unlimited unliability Company)


We could say Stelsi has succeeded, not losing its dance lightness, in creating a lyric, honest, rich in content album on a frisky crossing of very different styles. An album about life. Life is different but, in any case, completely ours.
Domestic price: 196.90UAH, International price: $17.90USD

Saralunden, Andrey Kiritchenko. There was no end. (EP).


Just an ideal balance between affability to the listener and self-absorbed contemplation. Conditionally, a sort of semi-acoustic, minimalist trip-hop. But far not any trip-hop would afford so much fresh, transparent air in sounding as here.
Domestic price: 152.90UAH, International price: $13.90USD

Ivan Samshit. Essential Shit. /digi-pack/


Electronic romances, dances full of sense, transcendental lyrics of clearances between worlds, enchanted and warm immersion in evening snow... Ivan Samshit strange knights of the transparent autumn of urban stones. Sometimes it seems that the very enigma of the night before the dawn speaks to us through the voice of Petro Dain...
Domestic price: 196.90UAH, International price: $17.90USD

Nikita. ChamelEon.


She as though plays, but so sincerely as only children can she does not pretend but really lives in it. And that is why you trust it. Such discs are as if clothes of a Transparent Gipsy. Now beautiful and then just fanciful. Made of a thousand shreds, each of them having its own story...
Domestic price: 201.30UAH, International price: $18.30USD

Luk. Sex.


In this music, there is something of photosynthesis it also converts sun energy into force and joy of growth and oxygen for friends and other neighbors. With it, everything happens simply and easily the morning, walk, work and avoiding work, kiss and the first pot of tea, night on the balcony and snow...
Domestic price: 141.90UAH, International price: $12.90USD

Luk. Tourist Zone.


Eccentricities, sure, differ. This one is entirely positive. Though, sometimes there is a temporary confidence that "Luk" creates music that stays somewhat aloof from our reality. But it does not prevent it from smiling and our reality starts smiling back...
Domestic price: 152.90UAH, International price: $13.90USD

Luk. Lemon.


Luk inserts itself into te space organically. This album music has got a heart. I dont know how but I know it...
Domestic price: 152.90UAH, International price: $13.90USD

Dazzle Dreams. Dazzle Dreams.


The project, actually, appeared as far back as a few years ago but it is lately that the concept has completed its final transformations, reincarnations, and now it is already somewhat new music. Not only in relation to itself, but also in relation to modern Ukrainian music in general it seems that Dazzle Dreams are currently the only ones in Ukraine who play synthi-pop but with expressive, bright elements of ethno-lounge.
Domestic price: 130.90UAH, International price: $11.90USD

Talita Kum. Inozemtsi. /cassette/.


Audio cassette/ ..Literature. When you start to listen to this album, there is a sensation as if you open the book. This album is a debut, but not amateurs play this music..
Domestic price: 119.90UAH, International price: $10.90USD

Vivienne Mort. Dosvid. /digi-pack/. (Experience)


Is there any way to measure experience? Even supposing that it is the sum of answers, all the knowledge you have gained. And what if experience is measured not with the number of answers, but with the quality of questions? Vivienne Mort seems to glide on the surface of a mirror on the other side of its bottomlessness and puts dark pearls straight to your lips..
Domestic price: 157.30UAH, International price: $14.30USD

Vivienne Mort. Anthology. /eco-pack/. (4CDs box-set +poster)


Shortly before the release of the new LP, "Experience," Vivienne Mort reprinted at one bout all the previous releases, from the debut "Pipino Theater" to EP "Rosa". In the cardboard box, you will discover 4 mini-vinyl records (preserving the original art) + a poster with Daniella's photo.
Domestic price: 328.90UAH, International price: $29.90USD

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?
Domestic price: 152.90UAH, International price: $13.90USD

Contrabanda.com.ua. Dreamer. /digi-pack/.


..when everything is good, nothing is left to do but just listen. With outstanding which also matters pleasure. This is the case when pop music is made so differently compared to most of the customary Ukrainian pop music that.. one can only express sincere gratitude.
Domestic price: 141.90UAH, International price: $12.90USD

Maria Burmaka. Tin po vodi... /digi-pack/. (Shadow On the Water..)


The new album by Maria Burmaka turns out internally diverse and it looks like the best one so far. Lots of various thoughts, emotions, and feelings thus the songs are so different. However, faith in love or rather, perhaps, confidence in love still arches over the entire album. And thus the light pierces out...
Domestic price: 152.90UAH, International price: $13.90USD

Lama. Nazavzhdy... (CD+DVD). /digi-pack/. (For Ever...)


..In the album, one can definitely sense Lama's branded style. Another characteristic is its folk melodies, the Ukrainian musical roots. It is built on harmonies of our people.
Domestic price: 251.90UAH, International price: $22.90USD

Zoryana. Play. /digi-pack/.


...The main thing is different the positive mood and the lyrical tint, and this foundation gives birth to quite a good youth cocktail. Without serious claims to profoundness but with the apparent capacity to recharge a tired person, to steer his / her thoughts toward something cheerful.
Domestic price: 141.90UAH, International price: $12.90USD

Korolivs'ki Zajci. Serce-Misyac'. /digi-pack/. (Moon Heart)


It seems that more than 10 years have passed since the release of the previous album by "Korolivski Zaytsi" and, perhaps, few could expect continuation. Although, given the first works by the group, this long silence has had to upset all lovers of good poetry decorated with patterns of alternative music.
Domestic price: 119.90UAH, International price: $10.90USD

Platina. Pro tebe... (About You...)


From the moment of the release of the debut album, almost four years have passed now we can state that during this time music by the group has noticeably changed. Not radically this is again a sort of "pop rock with heavy elements" but the quality has become different. The music has become more melodious, arrangement and performance more transparent..
Domestic price: 130.90UAH, International price: $11.90USD

Contrabanda.com.ua. Parol: kokhaju. (Password: I Love)


The new album is released in mid-winter, but its name hints at quite a spring mood and the hint, it seems, is substantiated. If the debut work tended to "heavy blues", "Password: I Love" appears lighter, more romantic, transparent. However, it is still not the manner that has changed one recognizes the group's sounding at once it is the mood that has changed.
Domestic price: 113.30UAH, International price: $10.30USD

TyshaKids. Zhyva vinila. (Live Vinyl)


..the album is not homogeneous, it has both sadness and joy, and lightness, and twilight, and seriousness, as different expressions of the same and beautiful face. While there is no fear, although words about fear still can be heard from time to time. However, everybody trying to follow his/her path honestly unavoidably reflects on that and slender honesty can be felt in every song of the album.
Domestic price: 141.90UAH, International price: $12.90USD

Alena Vinnitskaya. Konvert. (Envelope)


It is difficult to explain this, because nothing has changed radically from outside. But somehow there is a persistent feeling that within this music there now sounds such confidence of one's own forces, ability to speak out simply, without superficial things that it really looks like a new quality level.
Domestic price: 124.30UAH, International price: $11.30USD

Lama. Svitlo i tin. (Light and Shade)


It is pleasant that one step ahead was made with arrangements "Light and Shade" sounds more voluminous, expressive, diverse. It is pleasant that Philharmonic Orchestra can be heard in the majority of the songs and it is pleasant that this is not the only sparkle in the album. Music of the project is more and more tending to rock sounding but remains light. And no doubt its sounding brings pleasure.
Domestic price: 251.90UAH, International price: $22.90USD

Talita Kum. Harjacha i hirka. /re-edition, digi-pack/.


There is a new and bright reincarnation in it, a new look at things, a new gentle nuance. It looks like a flower, each petal of which has a different colour or shade, which emphasises the depth of other colours.
Domestic price: 361.90UAH, International price: $32.90USD

Yanka Kozyr's Orchestra. Maty. (Mother)


Yanka Kozyr Orchestra not simply create music they create their own mystery of sound, live and bright. And the music matter appears here so saturated, dense, enriched that it seems that it is visible, one can touch it, one can breathe it under water...
Domestic price: 152.90UAH, International price: $13.90USD

Talita Kum. Shou biznes! (Show Business!)


Talita Kum do not yield their habit and this is good to produce varicolored albums. "Show Business!" is again a kaleidoscope of moods, intonations, styles. From disco to rock-mainstream, from tender love lyrics to Freudian banter, from an unhurried ballad to spring drive without ceremony.
Domestic price: 141.90UAH, International price: $12.90USD

Faktychno Sami. Lo-Fi TRavmy.


Sometimes and you never know the next step this group will make - it is a real alternative. You see, an alternative simply means an open possibility of choice, an unlimited amount of possibilities.
Domestic price: 185.90UAH, International price: $16.90USD

Alena Vinnitskaya. Electro.


...this album may serve far not only for dancing. Though it is announced as a dancing one, it is interesting and pleasant just to listen to it. As for me, it is here that Aljona Vinnytska has come very closely to her own format, correct exactly for her.
Domestic price: 152.90UAH, International price: $13.90USD

Platina. Zajvi slova. (Superfluous words)


Music of the group is not heavy, but tends to rock sounding. From additional spices, most perceptible is the influence of hard-rock of the 1970-80s but the group successfully mixes it with modern colors. It is possible to separately emphasize the vocalist it is interesting to follow her intonations, she is able to positively surprise.
Domestic price: 130.90UAH, International price: $11.90USD

Gorgisheli. Amore.


"Gorgisheli" plays light rock today, that is high-quality pop music with rock coloring. And its quality is exactly the one that quite a lot of our modern pop-performers lack. Well, thats not bad "Gorgisheli" have great chances to quickly become one of the most interesting current projects in the style "pop-rock".
Domestic price: 124.30UAH, International price: $11.30USD

Lama. Meni tak treba. (I Need It So)


The first album of the project "Lama", no doubt, is one of the most pleasant and long-expected recent debuts in the domain of pop music. There are heaps of new performers, but those to enjoy your heart... But in this case everything is good from the very beginning.
Domestic price: 251.90UAH, International price: $22.90USD

Talita Kum. Inozemtsi.


This is very nice debut. Not often girls became real leaders of Ukrainian rock-groups.
Domestic price: 152.90UAH, International price: $13.90USD

Nota. Razom z toboju. (Together with You)


Year 2007 Nota, a.k.a. Natalia Stadnyk, graduated from school. And released together with her group the first album "Together with You". A beautiful album, I should say of such album even experienced ones would not be ashamed. However, probably, "adult" groups just cannot afford anything of the kind?
