Critical. Graphorrhea.

Critical is, as known, a joint project, a mobile construction. Participants in it may be replaced from one event to another however, not all of them. Thus, in this release Andriy Kyrychenko and Dmytro Kotra are accompanied by Tobias Astrom and Jeff Surak and the joint work by so diverse musicians, maybe, just could not be homogeneous, unambiguous. Therefore, having paid attention to the black-and-white design of the cover, also pay attention to that actually it is saturated with delicate patterns of various degrees of complication. Just as the content of the disc it is only at first sight that it seems rather simple... However, gradually almost unnoticeably but persistently the number of lines, layers, bands, aftersounds, parallel and independent steps grows. And all of that flows, sounds, disappears without pressure without transforming into structured noise with appearance of new details previous ones somehow modestly grow transparent, after which they disappear in the English manner. This is not city graffiti but urban graphics, if you like. Simultaneously rich and ascetic, quiet and swift. Self-sufficient.

this time Critical were:
Dmytro "Kotra" Fedorenko - track constructions and arrangements, bass, drums, programming, synthetics
Andrey Kiritchenko - computer, acoustic guitar, field recordings
Tobias Astrom - feedback/effects, manipulated recordings of long lost cities/memories
Jeff Surak - autoharp, microcassettes, processing

Kotra, Sturqen. Luz. (EP, CDr). /mini-pack/.


All this analog noise is like a rolling forest of glass, concrete, and plastic, which has acquired its own life in liquid light of the majestic sun. Thick and terrible when you look at it closely, but transparent and brittle when you do not look away from it...
Domestic price: 195.33UAH, International price: $17.92USD

Kotra, Zavoloka, Dunaewsky69. Kallista. /eco-pack/.


"Kallista" is an hour-long journey through contrasts. Sometimes muted, soft, sometimes quite sharp. But, in any case, these are deep, voluminous sound miniatures, in which there is space for meditative immersion, and for purely urban drive, and for futuristic fantasies, and for essentially shamanistic experiences.

CAT, Alla Zagaykevych. Zymovy sat. /digi-pack/. (Winter CArTen)


This world is separated from others with only a thin veil the veil of our perceptions. And such albums as "Zymovy sat" they make this veil visible, tangible. Re-present it. Thus, they make it possible to move it apart...

Million Ways To Spend Your Time. /mini-pack/


CD compilation "Million Ways To Spend Your Time" was dedicated to 5th birthday of Ukrainian label Quasi Pop. It represents new & rare works by label mates and exclusive tracks from Quasi Pop's friends from different countries:

Ojra, Andrey Kiritchenko. A Tangle Of Mokosha.


The space remains clear decorations appear fragmentary and absolutely unobtrusive. They afterwards form their own layer of fragile patterns but the space all the same remains clear and transparent, therefore the general picture acquires depth, immensity, extraordinarily lots of warm, light, heartfelt overtones sound in it...
Domestic price: 249.83UAH, International price: $22.92USD

Viktor Pushkar, Serhiy Okhrimchuk. [chomub.ini].


This space lives at the level of such free, indirect associations that it seems almost impossible. It is quite possible that, when listening to this music, you will finally learn to dance architecture...
Domestic price: 173.53UAH, International price: $15.92USD

Viktor Pushkar, Serhiy Okhrimchuk. [chomub.ini]. Court music as it could [not] happen.


Is it really so [im]possible to imagine a Court, where the could [not] be exactly this court music? One of answer options [chomub.ini]. ..It is time to start producing one's own blocks for the game, or to radically change the methods of their combining. It is time to search for harmony in combination of the Infrared with the Ultraviolet, the Hard with the Fluffy, or the Wavy with the Rectilinear...

Kotra, Zavoloka. Wag the Swing. /eco-pack/.


It thrills. Cool and warm, tart and sweet, quiet and agitated that is sounding of this disc. Joyful and straightforward children in love whose feelings are reciprocal can be like that. As to my taste, of course because who know...
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Tom Carter, Vanessa Arn, The Moglass. Snake-tongued Swallow-tailed...


And due to active use of live instruments, this music is called post-rock. And due to how exactly and in what combinations they are used it is named ambient and psycho-folk. It is a live, warm matter, and it bears a long, tangible, contemplative feeling of coziness, growth, flow...

Francisco Lopez, Andrey Kiritchenko. Mavje.


...his space does not wait till you make the first step it shrouds you at once, leads, rolls, pushes unnoticeably warm air over tarred railroad ties and you do not dive and do not enter, but at once... you stay here so as if it has been and is and will be so naturally you are there, you find, you know...
Domestic price: 173.53UAH, International price: $15.92USD

The Moglass, Andrey Kiritchenko, Anla Courtis. Courtis/Kiritchenko/Moglass.


The one who accumulated spaces for one track plays the guitar for another track, and from the others' sounding creates something third in the fourth track they switch places, roles, world... There arises a strange feeling you seem to see familiar things, but in unfamiliar combinations, at unexpected angles.
