Vinky. Ruta-M'yata.

As far as I know, this is a debut album of this group. And as far as I can see, this album puts one question in front of listeners, namely: what should we expect from the group that starts so mightily? There may be three answers to this question. The first one is unpleasant as the first album will be the last one as well. The second one will be pleasant. The initial level is high enough to expect from the next album or albums to produce an explosive effect. As for the third one, personally I like it most of all. It is the following: the first album is a convincing evidence of the fact that this group is capable of making experiments deeply and finely through mixing ethno, acid, trance, rock and fly-agaric and at the same time remembering the taste. Still, even the vocal singing deserves your attention, to say nothing about the rest of music. And it means that in future we should expect interesting search and sudden discoveries. Though, I must admit, both search and discoveries already exist now, right in this album. Get acquainted.

Sheetel. Mr. White. /special edition, digi-pack/.


..it sounds as if somewhere at a rather strange intersection of indie/alt-rock/dark cabaret, without going into any of these territories explicitly, fully. And this is how, one step away from the clear line, they are forming their own space: broken, stormy and muffled, painfully sharp and – seemingly conscious of its mirages.
Domestic price: 253.75UAH, International price: $23.28USD

Merva. Shaman. /digi-pack/.


..despite the relatively exotic terminology, these songs focus on such simple and complex, fundamental things in their inclusiveness: Life. Death. The path. The forest of ideas. In the album "Shaman", Merva weaves densely – and amplifies this with the corresponding sound range, which by no means inspires relaxation.
Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Tin Sontsya. Buremny kray. /digi-pack/. (The Turbulent Lands)


Presentation of the heroic past – that's already a passed phase. Among other things – because the modernity offers the material for that here and now, thus the lyrics may easily bring together bugs on the Internet and the taste of war...
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Pins. Marafon. /digi-pack/. (Marathon)


With their second album, Pins reinforce the impression that the group does not agree to the role of a simple mirror. To see, think, understand – and seek. They may not always find – but do not stop. Eventually, perhaps, no answer is final – the more one gets to know, the more one has to cognize.
Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Skinhate. NeYakUsi. (NotLikeEveryone)


The fourth album by Skinhate – and the first one in the recent 10 years – is, as ever, true musical fury. An unprepared listener will be just carried away, a prepared one – comforted with the powerful hardcore mix and meaningful anger.
Domestic price: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Mind Shredder. Mindless Puppets. /digi-pack/.


If one has a look at the song titles – one would think that the meeting with the music would be quite … predictable, probably. But this distance impression changes to some extent once you start listening. In fact, perhaps, the main surprise is how softly electronics and progressive rock are combined here.
Domestic price: 133.85UAH, International price: $12.28USD

Stoned Jesus. The Harvest. /digi-pack/.


This album leaves an interesting feeling – as if one has heard three in one. A sort of "arrivederci" to the previous album, completely different aesthetics. But it is only the first half (including by timing) of the disk. Next is "Black Church" – through which one may already recall that Stoned Jesus started with vintage rock...
Domestic price: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Kraamola. Kraamola. (EP).


..the debut mini-album by the Kyiv group "Kraamola". Despite the relatively small content – four songs plus a bonus – the work definitely manages to catch with its energy, a powerful message. And it's not just that the music is heavy – thus, by definition, it is tense, charged with energy.
Domestic price: 79.35UAH, International price: $7.28USD

Anna. Sribna Zmiya. (Silver Snake)


"Anna" has released a truly thoughtful piece. The powerful sounding and the characteristic vocal – all of that is clear, this is familiar, but I'd like to separately mention two other aspects. First – the new lyrics of the group carry even more semantic meaning. And, second, this is, actually, construction of the compositions..
Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Oneyroid. Giftstoffe (Poisonous Matters).


We wanted to introduce this album here for several reasons at once. First, it has an interesting general concept – as can be seen from its name already, the album is devoted to the matters that for many decades have been helping people to kill – both each other, and oneself. Secondly – these texts do touch with their merciless straightforwardness, frankness of evaluations, bitter irony.
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Tol. Kley.Mo. (EP). /digi-pack/


"Kley.Mo" is the answer that Tol gave to itself to its own question. For about a year prior to release of this disc the group declared that it would be on vacations – and it was far not a sure fact that it would ever get back on the scene. But the period of silence has passed, and Tol has not only returned to performances, but has also presented fresh material.
Domestic price: 122.95UAH, International price: $11.28USD

Merva. Bardo.


Artistic tools of alternative music, expressive male vocal with a number of emotional tints, introduction into the body of the songs of singing in the authentic manner, extraordinarily appropriate sounding of folk winds – all of that creates a very saturated, literally electrified atmosphere. It is in this connection that it's nice to note that lyrics of the songs in no way yield to the music.
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

SHEcrIES. 4 Vivisected Souls.


11 years have passed after release of the first album by this team. It seemed for some time that the group no longer existed. But they have won over time and have appeared with a new composition and new music, which was defined as sad aggressive metal. Some say that they have transformed doom metal, others – that SHEcrIES have abandoned it completely.
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Anna. Karmatrash.


Emotional, very energetic presentation – quite hard, but also very melodious music with inventive findings – varied vocal. Plus – texts, in which not only rhyme and emotion dwell, but also a thought. Often ambiguous – and, by the way, not so angry as its sound realization.
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Opozicia. Odyn iz tysjach. (One of Thousands)


..topics of songs by Opozicia cover an extensive range of themes. And, strictly speaking, Christian morality is the foundation, not a flag. That is why in the group's texts it is possible to hear a great number of poignant social issues – these guys are not afraid to admit that problems exist, they are not afraid to give them their true names.
Domestic price: 122.95UAH 67.58UAH
International price: $11.28USD $6.20USD

DVS. Just Crazy.


There is in all that music some adult thing that lets one know – nothing occasional, toy-like happens here. Adult guys create adult songs and drink beer in the adult way (even if they do not drink it). Leather jeans should be somewhere at hand
Domestic price: 122.95UAH 92.21UAH
International price: $11.28USD $8.46USD

White. Byj pershym. (Hit First)


It is not that Ukraine has few serious, heavy rock groups – they exist, and new ones constantly appear, and more and more actively. But far not each group manages to furnish their appearance on the large scene in such a high-quality, noted and convincing way as the group White has managed. However, maybe, it is logical...
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Tol. Syndrom bazhannja.


...pressing  music wave of the album can somehow  cleans the brain and makes it virgin. That is a very strange example of the super gloomy optimism, his nervous smile destroys the promises emptiness. What it’s going to do with you, I wonder.
Domestic price: 467.83UAH, International price: $42.92USD

Brutto. Roki. /digi-pack/. (Rocky)


Life is hard – and these songs will not help one escape. On the contrary – they will help one to face it standing straight, looking it in the eye. "Fight for her", Zhadan wrote once. She is – the land, the destiny, the blood, the freedom.. The love, sure – with all the abysses and apexes of its meanings. The album sounds like a clenched fist, until the last track..
Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Perkalaba. Underopera (in two acts). 2CD. /digi-pack/.


This recording was made on March 25, 2009 in the club "Left Bank" under Lviv Opera House. The album was sold out quickly and has long been a rarity – our store was just lucky to buy a couple of the last discs by chance.
Domestic price: 304.33UAH, International price: $27.92USD

Perkalaba. Live In Moscow. /digi-pack/.


The disc is unique, at least, because it is the only available live album by Perkalaba.
Domestic price: 206.23UAH, International price: $18.92USD

Gogol Bordello. Pura Vida Conspiracy.


...cocktails by Gogol Bordello become more transparent. Not so much quiet, rather – more considered, balanced internally. It seems to be a carnival of weird masks, behind which the simple idea lurks: no one makes you agree to everyday mediocrity. You can do it – otherwise.
Domestic price: 173.53UAH, International price: $15.92USD

Kozak System. Shablya. re-edition. /digi-pack/. (Saber)


"Kozak System" offers a bright mixture of modern and folk poetry, powerful rock, ska-punk with insertions of reggae, and everything is kept together by the serious frame of the Ukrainian folk root. In short - you should meet them again.
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

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...
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Perkalaba. Dido. /digi-pack/. (Grandpa)


..it seems that in the sense of music Perkalaba has returned to the wave it started from – but in fact this is essentially different music played with more or less the same instruments. Such a trick – so I advise you to listen very carefully. Maybe – you will visit the Mystical Theater of Shadows on Perforated Cardboard...
Domestic price: 206.23UAH, International price: $18.92USD

Braty Hadyukiny. Ya vernuvsya domiv. Tribute. /digi-pack/. (I Have Come Back Home)


The fact that it is a good album – I believe, it comes to one's mind right after just reading the list of songs. But one is wrong – because everything is much better than good. This CD is full of surprises and true revelations..
Domestic price: 173.53UAH, International price: $15.92USD

Vopli Vidopliassova. Krayina mriy. /anniversary release, digi-pack/. (Land of Dreams)


Any music, if there is place for ethnic motives, moods in it – changes forever, and changes the listener. For the best. Because such music acquires new dimensions of depth, it is connected with the important and irreplaceable space – in which the root of culture and worldview of that or another people lives.
Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Vopli Vidopliassova. Khvyli Amura. /anniversary release, digi-pack/. (Waves of Amour)


It is hard to say for sure why is it so popular: either by their energetic music or by their nice lyrics or just because of charismatic Oleh Skrypka. But they are super popular - this is for sure. This album is next step forward.
Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Vopli Vidopliassova. Buly den'ky. /anniversary release, digi-pack/. (There were those days)


This album as if involves time into reverse movement. It represents qualitative Ukrainian alternative rock-and-roll – such as it would be 20 years ago if ideology, finance, quality of equipment, etc. allowed that. It reminds all ideas and feeling that were important – and lets the past free, says goodbye to it.
Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Vopli Vidopliassova. Abo Abo. /anniversary release, digi-pack/.


The album "Abo Abo" is a concert record made in France at the "Eurockeens de Belfort" festival as long ago as in June, 1991. But not only. This is also the first compact disc of the group – previous records were published on cassettes. In addition, it was released abroad – a rare bird for those times, we should say.
Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Perkalaba. !chydro /digi-pack/


Perkalaba unexpectedly, without any announcement produced its third album. Well, and it was right to do that – it has been long time already that we've been willing to hear something new from the spheres of absurd folk, and Perkalaba still stays virtually the main Ukrainian guide in the wilderness of these unexplored paths and ladders.
Domestic price: 206.23UAH, International price: $18.92USD

Sobaki V Kosmose, Serhiy Zhadan. Sportyvnyy klub armiji. (Sports Club of the Army)


...Consequently, we have in one pot epatage, sarcasm, philosophy, lyric poetry, ska, reggae, punk, folk singing and just drive – both in words and in music. And if you prefer not too trimmed art – this is the album that should not miss your attention.
Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

The Yurcash. Menuets. Tjul‘pany V TselaFani. (Menuets. Tulips In CellaPhane)


Yurcash really was not going to disappoint all those whom he managed to surprise so positively. The second album is also a sort of a "hodgepodge" of different, almost incompatible styles and moods, from hardcore to acid chanson. Though, there are now fewer "heavy" music remarks – however, it does not seem to be a severe loss. And the banter in the texts – has become more varied, diversified.
Domestic price: 217.13UAH, International price: $19.92USD

Perkalaba. Hovoryt' Ivano-Frankivs'k. (Ivano-Frankivsk Speaking)


Perkalaba has managed what seems impossible – to merge folk-ska and psychedelics, not forgetting about banter as well. Both in music and in the lyrics. Movement in this direction took place before, but now it has acquired even brighter, more expressive features. And this, you know, takes you away. If it goes on...
Domestic price: 206.23UAH, International price: $18.92USD

Vopli Vidopliassova. Buly den'ky. (There were those days)


The group "VV" has recently celebrated the 20th anniversary of their creative life – and have released a new album. The age is respectable not only for a group – even for a person it is already quite a lot. One can – and should – sum up some results and draw conclusions. Actually, the album "There Were the Days" has become this kind of summarizing.
Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

The Ukrainians. Respublika.


The overwhelming majority of songs are Ukrainian folk songs known to everybody. But you may never have heard them being performed in such a manner so far. If we mix this cuisine up on hard and forceful guitar reefs, as well as on violent drums, we will get a cocktail that blows up right before our eyes.
