Balaklava Blues. Fly. /eco-pack/.
Maria Marczyk (then Kudryavtseva) was one of founders of the famous Bozhychi ensemble, she loudly rang throughout Ukraine as member of the Soncekliosh band, then there was the Kuku Shanel project and during 2014 Maidan they developed friendly collaboration with Mark Marczyk. As a result, they formed a family and the Ukrainian-Canadian project Balaklava Blues, where Maria is primarily responsible for the folk component, while Mark for the electronic one. This is electro-folk that one should not be ashamed of naming indie and that does not shy away from pop art methods. Here, antique texts are juxtaposed with dubstep and blues, the authentic singing style is intercepted by fragments of Soviet cartoons or the voice of a soldier of the Russian-Ukrainian war, dance drive suddenly sinks into pauses filled with silent laments. In short, a lot of things are mixed here and that is mixed thoughtfully, tastefully, it is well-matured. And, sure, with irony the very name of the album, "FLY", hints at that transparently enough. A very good piece of work and a great promise for the future.

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...
Domestic price: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

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: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

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: 162.63UAH, International price: $14.92USD

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.
Domestic price: 249.83UAH, International price: $22.92USD

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.
Domestic price: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

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: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

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: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

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: 173.53UAH, International price: $15.92USD

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: 195.33UAH, International price: $17.92USD

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: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

the Maneken. Live at Arena Concert Plaza. (CD+DVD). /digi-pack/.


Actually, in Europe, America, even Japan the Maneken is, probably, known even better than at home. But, fortunately, the situation is gradually leveling. Quality is valued everywhere, it is almost impossible to imitate it at least, when it comes to music and the attentive listener. And this musician offers a high-quality benchmark...
Domestic price: 253.75UAH, International price: $23.28USD

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: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

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: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Skryabin. Technofight 1999. (re-edition). /digi-pack/.


...the original album "Technofight" which was recorded as long ago as in 1993 and the duration of which made up over 90(!) minutes was never released, and the master disc even got lost. Therefore, when in 1999 the re-edition question arose, the old songs were recorded anew...
Domestic price: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Skryabin. Mova ryb. (re-edition). /digi-pack/. (Fish Language)


...here, it seems, the objective was not so much presentation of the new material as rather a sort of restoration of justice. At all events, pay attention: this "Fish Language" (1997) mainly consists of the songs that in due time were included into first albums by Skryabin. The ones that have never been officially released.
Domestic price: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

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: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

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: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

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: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

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: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

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: 217.13UAH, International price: $19.92USD

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: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

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: 195.33UAH, International price: $17.92USD

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: 199.25UAH, International price: $18.28USD

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: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

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: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

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: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

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: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

ONUKA, NAOFI. MOZAKA. /digi-pack/. (Mosaics)


"Mosaics" is like a home with a thousand windows, behind each of them there being a new landscape, its own story... and what goes without words. A bright house where all these different stories complement each other. Actually, Onuka does define her style as electro-folk, and this is, again, an intersection of the archaic and the modern via an attempt to pronounce old signs in the modern language.
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

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.
Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Astarta. Astarta/Edwin. /digi-pack/.


Cooperation of Astarta (a side project by Eduard Prystupa) with Colin Edwin (Porcupine Tree bass-player) is just an example of such quality implementation of ideas, when first you do not even try to understand what the essence is, but just listen. Listen carefully, because it is delicious.
Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

ONUKA. Onuka. /digi-pack/.


In music as elsewhere there are revolutionary and evolutionary steps. But in fact the line is not on the "r", but on the implementation quality. The project "Onuka" in general, and the album "Onuka" in particular are exactly about the implementation quality...
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

ILLaria. 13 misyatsiv. /digi-pack/. (13 Months)


...Ukrainian authenticity is primarily the mystical energy of the earth and the complete harmony with the space. This is very powerful music! The new disc by ILLARIA is a kind of a calendar of Ukrainian music traditions. It includes cover versions of well-known folk songs based on authentic archival records.
Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

SAMATA. Vopli Vidopliassova. (collection edition). /digi-pack/.


..a new experiment by "Bukovyna molfars". 12 songs by Vopli Vidoplyasova (this time without lyrics) 12 tracks with which one can both work and relax. It should be admitted that music by VV after adding those mentioned elements of new age, acid jazz and ethnic ornaments comes of an entirely different nature, content and potency...
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Dazzle Dreams Sound System. Nepal. (CD+DVD).


On February, 21, 2008, the folklore expedition of the project Dazzle Dreams Sound System left for Nepal. The primary objective of the project is searching and recording of countries' ethnic music music samples, accumulation of an original record library and its integration into their own music. During one week, the guys accumulated a great number of original samples, and they became part of new tracks by Dazzle Dreams.
Domestic price: 253.75UAH, International price: $23.28USD

SAMATA. Fire-show.


If music of the album were not interesting, even then this release would be worth buying for the sake of the booklet, because it is a separate transparent trip. However, we a lucky the music also opens for us something new indeed. Or, maybe, you know other works in the style of "Carpathians new-age with elements of ethnic jazz"?
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Kind of Zero. Happy people. /digi-pack/


The third album of Serhiy Kindzerskyy is a bright mixture of different styles, as he feels equally comfortable in such styles as Progressive, Breakz, DrumNbass, Electro-Tech. Moreover, it is not the first time when Kind of Zero actively involves live instruments into his work you can hear violin, pipe, electro- and bass-guitar on the new album.
Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Tartak, Huljajhorod. Kofein.


The new variant, I think, is to unite those who liked "Guliaygorod" at once and those to whom it then seemed a bit too hard. Because the engine remains as powerful as before, besides the specificity of aerodynamics are now taken into account in the outlines, they have become smoother and swifter, but inside there are now much more cozy nooks. Result both the speed and comfort have grown.
Domestic price: 304.33UAH, International price: $27.92USD

Carpathiana. Eat My Borsch.


...performances by the group are special for their ability to change the space, with this music air becomes light, but very saturated, energetic. However, it is not surprising, in fact Carpathiana combine in their work club, electronic culture with the colors of Ukrainian folklore.
Domestic price: 133.85UAH, International price: $12.28USD

Aby MC, Tanya Radosteva. F5. /digi-pack/


There happen moments in life when suddenly you understand that you are happy not some time after, not some time ago but right now, right here, just as you are happy... This album is full of exactly such happiness it exists right here and now, it quietly shines in each melody. Here, it is very cozy...
Domestic price: 358.83UAH, International price: $32.92USD

Stelsi. Tam... (There...)


Stelsi continues singing their own texts and, we should say, one discovers more and more bright bunter there. In the combination with influences of synth-pop aesthetics it sounds both funny, and original. It cannot but please us, because only people with a sense of humor are able to change anything...
Domestic price: 195.33UAH, International price: $17.92USD

Aby MC. Ocetni standarty. (Acid Standards)


They strikingly harmoniously combine clear sorrow, sadness with joy as clear. And that is why there is inside always a place left for light. Usually, children have this ability and it does not matter how old they are...
Domestic price: 195.33UAH, International price: $17.92USD

Aby MC. Green. The modern treatment of traditional Ukrainian folkmusik. /digi-pack/


I think that modern interpretation of the traditional Ukrainian music, which is presented in this album, is one of the steps not only forward, but also deep down. In the first place - deep down. As for me, this attempt seems to be a success.
Domestic price: 162.63UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Molotov 20. Korali. The modern treatment of traditional Ukrainian folkmusik. /digi-pack/


...being a city-dweller and an average person, I cannot listen to an authentic singing for quite a long time. I need not only voice melodies, but also more or less complicated rhythms and some additional melodious lines. Thats why it is very good that the projects like this one appear...
Domestic price: 162.63UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Katya Chilly. Ja molodaja. (I Am Young)


In music world which she created the folklore tune, folk songs themselves, modern music with the electronic polyrhythmic stuffing and something from opera in the vocal are rebraided together. All of this creates an unforgettable effect.
