Kotra. Reset. /eco-pack/.
Once closer to the morning, after a long night full of various sounds, I was listening to a performance by Kotra. A whole squall of noise with veins of rhythm, reckless onslaught of liberation energy that wiped off trash of carelessness, shreds of impressions on its way it captured, immersed in experiencing of speed without limitations, without questions, without fluctuations. That was real catharsis, unforgettable experience... Thus, in their new work Kotra looks different. First it even seems that radically different. Almost radically moderate. However... When one already immerses deeper into the album, another angle of view appears, and let me explain why. The tracks, predominantly, have such a dense, clear structure and transformations, actions take place, it would seem, only within its scopes that up to a certain instant this structure seems to be a cage for creativity. And all that seems to interfere with actions, attribute them with some formal aftertaste. But suddenly you understand clearly that exactly this external formality can become an alternative way to liberation. That is, the monotonous repetition of the structure of formal motions results in that you stop taking this structure into account, noticing it from now on you see quite different things here. This, if you wish, can be compared with Buddhists' reading of mantras: first you set a structure, and then you go beyond its scopes. So, Kotra has not abandoned the quest and again tries to fit the listener into a situation of liberation. So, the name of the album, "Reset", can be interpreted ambiguously, and this is good. So, it is not by chance and not in vain that the envelope of this album is white. In the end, everything dissolves in white except for freedom...

Zavoloka. Vedana. /eco-pack/.

It is exploration of Water Element. It is inspired by knowledge about Ukrainian Cossacks-Magicians, so-called Kharakternyky, that could control forces of nature, particularly water. They used to drink spring water to purify their energy and to became undistinguished and fluid as water. To reach inner melting.

Dunaewsky69. Xquisite. Xcerpt. /eco-pack/.

We could say that it is a disc rather easy for perception so easy that even almost a dancing one. In any case, rhythms pulsate stably here, do not break, do not disappear all of a sudden. The other way round they develop, flow, grow in. But, at the same time, the melodies induce not so much to entertainment and loud conversations as to reflections, attentive perception.

Zavoloka. Suspenzia. /digi-pack/

...the method of narration is not cyclic, although you could hardly name it linear either. And at the same time even abrupt turns and seemingly sharp angles all the same have the quality of some roundness, even smoothness. Femininity...

The Moglass, Vanessa Arn, Tom Carter. 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...
