Akapulko. Dveri v Raj. /digi-pack/. (Heaven Door)


The author project by Serhiy Sakhno – the drummer of the legendary VV. "Akapulko" presents a completely new musical style, "trip-twist", as well as an incredible mix of Ukrainian melodies, dynamic hard "rock'n'pop", and the bluesy psychedelia of the 60s combined with the highly fashionable today "new sound of Berlin"...
Domestic price: 132.24UAH, International price: $13.92USD

The Anderson. Slovozbroja. (WordArms)


.."WordArms" is a rather rare phenomenon as for today: the album focuses on a social theme, thus – has words poignant enough... a comprehensive, politely aggressive album, sounding of which includes virtually nothing superfluous.
Domestic price: 113.24UAH, International price: $11.92USD

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: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

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: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

AntytilA. Vybyray. /digi-pack/. (Choose)


Their first album, "Buduvudu" was a couple years ago one of the best Ukrainian rock debuts. However, it was fair enough. Well, and the second album – that is more quality and craftsmanship, more self-awareness. More questions – and, perhaps, more open answer...
Domestic price: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

AntytilA. Nad polyusamy. /digi-pack/. (Over the Poles)


It was in 2012 when several songs from the album were written and presented. Other tracks were finished only a month ago. While the recording sessions were under way members of the band got through rather significant issues in their lives. Definitely, those issues couldn’t help but leave a mark on the new vision and feelings towards music...
Domestic price: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

BioNik. BioNik.


It is exactly such music that practically the whole Europe listens to now – the young part of population, accordingly. It is exactly such music that Ukraine lacks at present. At least, such bright cocktails of punk, pop, grunge, Brit-pop – practically nobody does that. And it is worth trying...
Domestic price: 88.16UAH, International price: $9.28USD

Brutto. Rodny kraj. /digi-pack/. (Native Land)


In the world, there are songs for fun, for escape, for kissing – lots of them. While these ones are song with the realization that they are grounded on truth. For the sake of which fear was defeated. And this feeling is very valuable.
Domestic price: 132.24UAH, International price: $13.92USD

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: 132.24UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Boombox. Terminal B. /digi-pack/.


Something is changing inside. The feeling is as if Andriy Khlyvnyuk submerges much deeper now, and peers much closer, and than suddenly opens up and appears probably even defenceless, vulnerable – and because of that, however strange that may be, stronger. Even if it is painful. And this movement is there.
Domestic price: 113.24UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Boombox. Holy korol. (EP). /premium, eco-pack/. (Naked King)


Regarding songs by Boombox, it has always been interesting to listen to the lyrics – among other things, due to their disposition to (and the ability of) playfulness. But the further, the less verbal balancing they contain – but more poignant senses, refined formulas, comprehensive observations. The new (mini)album "Naked King" is a very vivid evidence of that..
Domestic price: 135.66UAH, International price: $14.28USD

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: 113.24UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Veremiy. Vilna zemlya. /digi-pack/. (Free Land)


...While the songs of the new album tell of the times of the Ukrainian revolutions, Makhno movement, these are songs, which illustrate the link with the revolution contemporary for us and its heroes, bridge the glorious past and the dignified future. It fills the metal and dark romanticism of Veremiy with the authentic, purely Ukrainian spirit.
Domestic price: 151.24UAH, International price: $15.92USD

Voanerges. Tsilyuschy Rock Drevnyoho Kyeva. (The Healing Rock of the Ancient Kyiv)


...this music contains so much energy that it definitely leaves no room for indifference. Somewhere, it mesmerizes with art-rock passages, somewhere – it shamans with dusky rhythms, somewhere – adds a plenty of folklore patterns. And we should specifically mention that apart from the Ukrainian language, the Old Slavonic one sounds here.
Domestic price: 221.16UAH, International price: $23.28USD

Vopli Vidopliassova. Mamay.


Brand new single by VV! Disc includes three new songs, two remakes of the songs of Victor Tsoy and "Kino" group in Ukrainian and great video clip "Zoryana Osin'"
Domestic price: 97.66UAH, International price: $10.28USD

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: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Vopli Vidopliassova. On the Rock-Sich Festival Scene. (2CD, special edition).


You are looking at a special, premium release. And it has two important specific features. First: the appearance of Vopli Vidopliasova at the festival Rock-Sich is represented here in full, without excisions. Second: the premium release has, certainly, appeared in a limited number of copies. A small one.
Domestic price: 154.66UAH, International price: $16.28USD

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: 135.66UAH, International price: $14.28USD

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: 135.66UAH, International price: $14.28USD

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


Only one thing remains unchanged at each new occurrence of these musicians - it is high quality and power of creativity. This is not a "live" concert, but you may be convinced, that charismatic Oleh Skrypka still can break the internal protective borders of listeners and take them to the next level of feeling and perception.
Domestic price: 135.66UAH, International price: $14.28USD

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


"The long expected has finally happened – "VV" has republished its works of the past years. Cult one – you won’t call that anything but that. The album "Muzika" is something considerably more than just a music product or some high-quality goods. This is an idea, embodiment, revolution, hope, and joy, and a thousand of things in one."
Domestic price: 135.66UAH, International price: $14.28USD

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: 135.66UAH, International price: $14.28USD

Vopli Vidopliassova. Chudovy Svit. /digi-pack/. (The Wonderful World)


Even though "Wonderful World" seems to continue the trend of combining rock aesthetics with ethnics – now it sounds different. It sounds as if the band was able to rethink and synthesize all the previous groundwork – thus, when Oleh Skrypka defines this new piece as "velvet symphonic punk", that is not that much of an exaggeration..
Domestic price: 135.66UAH, International price: $14.28USD

Haydamaky. Haydamaky.


Musicians string traditional Ukrainian, Romanian, African melodies as motley rings on the pivot - rock music. This eclectic and harmonious cocktail has a special invigorative effect.
Domestic price: 154.66UAH, International price: $16.28USD

Haydamaky. Bohuslav.


..."Haydamaky" in general, and this album of theirs in particular, are characterised by a turbulent energy, you have nothing to do but to be filled with it...
Domestic price: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Haydamaky. Hodi spaty! /digi-pack/. (Stop Sleeping!)


As well as before, music of the native land remains the foundation of the band's creativity. But in the new work, there is significantly more rock heaviness in the sound, and the social, or even rebellious part has turned into a specific feature of the new album by Haydamaky. The call to fight runs through the entire album and is implied in its very title – "Stop Sleeping!"
Domestic price: 113.24UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Haydamaky. UkrOp. /digi-pack/. (Ukrajinsky Opir: Ukrainian Resistance)


Powerful in terms of the sound, concise and expressive in arrangements, loud but generally devoid of unnecessary noise – this is UkrOp. And what this album has enough of is the healthy heroic pathos. There is no less bitterness than strength, but also no less faith in victory – then the understanding of that this is hard work..
Domestic price: 202.16UAH, International price: $21.28USD

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: 135.66UAH, International price: $14.28USD

Dalai Lama. the sixth turtle.


..the debut disc by the group "Dalai Lama" is a mouthful of cheerful hope indeed. Not least of all – due to diversity of the material. Dalai Lama switches from alternative rock to grunge, mixes up punk and disco, changes the internal tension of trip-hop for the seeming transparency of post-rock, quotes funk inside out, just has fun with the sound – and does it confidently.
Domestic price: 113.24UAH, International price: $11.92USD

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: 88.16UAH 66.12UAH
International price: $9.28USD $6.96USD

Delia. Spohad. (Flashback)


Alternative music? – yes, this is it. Sympho-rock – yes, moreover, already now the group feels very confident in this sense, works at a large scale. Gothic? – yes, this is exactly the word that is the first to occur, if one speaks about the atmosphere as a whole, and about some texts in particular. Melodious heavy metal? – this, obviously, was the basis from which what we hear now grows.
Domestic price: 217.74UAH, International price: $22.92USD

Dymna Sumish. V krajini iljuziy. /digi-pack/. (In the Country of Illusions)


How many people, having first heard the songs "In the Country of Illusions" and "No", decided that they should certainly buy-listen to the new disc by Dymna Sumish? I think, more than one thousand. How many of them will be disappointed having bought-listened to this disc? I think, none – Dymna Sumish, sure, is one of the most interesting groups on the Ukrainian independent scene.
Domestic price: 221.16UAH, International price: $23.28USD

DOK. DVA. /digi-pack/.


"Brutal pop power" – so they call it. But there is a great temptation to also add other words: post-rock plus acoustic acid jazz with trip hop education – something like this, probably. However, all these names do not contradict each other – because music like this as it is means going beyond the limits of specific style...
Domestic price: 154.66UAH, International price: $16.28USD

Druha Rika. Supernation. /re-edition/.


In relation to the previous album, it was already mentioned that Druha Rika has changed significantly. Now we can only confirm: that was really not a passing discovery but a qualitative step. Above themselves – and the new work is an evidence of that there is no way back, and nobody needs it.
Domestic price: 113.24UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Epolets. Dogma.


The new disk combines songs about a variety of facets of our life – there is blues and loneliness, exciting gospel and sex, punk and showing off, trip-hop and anger, poignant tango and war. The world is changing every day, dogmas keep replacing each other, but we hope...
Domestic price: 113.24UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Esthetic Education. Werewolf.


It easily combines the somewhat nervous manner of indie rock with the best displays of brit-pop, with cool emotionality of Scandinavian underground. However, these are nothing but relative definitions. Speaking otherwise, light, graceful melodiousness plus furious onslaught – elegance and, at the same time, enormous tension of all forces.
Domestic price: 113.24UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Sobaki V Kosmose, Serhiy Zhadan. Zbroya proletariatu. /digi-pack/. (Weapons of the Proletariat)


The new album includes more stuff. Dirty guitars and rough rhythms – decorated with shiny ribbons of the cosmo-disco. Poems by Zhadan – an uncompromising weapon to kill worms in the brain, and at the same time – a clear enough ideology for anyone who does not agree to live as suggested by the contemporary System.
Domestic price: 217.74UAH, International price: $22.92USD

Serhiy Zhadan, Sobaki V Kosmose. Byjsya za neji. /book-comics-CD/. (Fight for Her)


Serhiy Zhadan is one of the most "flexible" contemporary authors in Ukraine in what relates to the means of communication with the public. This is true both about live performances, and about the ways of, actually, publications. And "Fight for Her" is just another experiment of the kind. Cool poetry, tough, "raw" music, and interesting graphic...
Domestic price: 141.74UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Yuri Zdorenko & Hash. Na zdorov'ja! /digi-pack/. (To Health!)


Yuriy Zdorenko & Hash spin up – and in quite an unexpected way. Actually, what could seem after release of their debut mini-album? That Zdorenko decided to cook another poignantly hot dish based on the recipe tested in the "Borsch" project. And what actually turns out?
Domestic price: 113.24UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Inkunabula. Nevydane. (Unprecedented)


Thus, a cradle... Let's see, maybe, something extraordinary will really appear from this cradle to the light of the day. In any case, there are preconditions for optimism for sure. During the three years of its existence, the group has had enough time to attain both a nice quality of the material, and, the main thing, their own manner.
Domestic price: 141.74UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Qarpa. & I made a Man. /digi-pack/.


The first fourteen customers will receive this disc signed by Irena Karpa! the new album from Qarpa Band is the music of the world which does not exist. It does not exist outside big cities, the Web, the utter interpenetration of cultures, and dilution of borders. This is the voice woven out of thousand voice...
Domestic price: 113.24UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Qarpa. Made in China. /eco-pack/.


Be distracted, chase the white rabbit – and then this wonderland will reveal itself in all of its freaking glory, free from prejudice or aesthetic bias. Irena Karpa and Co. do not amuse themselves with popular toddler games, they easily combine trash and fragility, and what grows out of all of that is – power. In particular – the power of being oneself.
Domestic price: 113.24UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Kozak System. Zhyvy i Lyuby. /digi-pack/. (Live and Love)


..So to say – the external drive has given way to the internal one, when dynamics are achieved not so much with heavy guitars and the high pace, but rather with a variety of approaches to arrangement, attention to detail. Thoughtfulness. In this work, there is a lot more space..
Domestic price: 151.24UAH, International price: $15.92USD

Kozak System. Zhyvy i lyuby / To live and love. /vinyl 140g LP/.


German pressing (EDC), black 140gr vinyl LP. In this work, there is a lot more space – maybe not so much that one would have perception of silence, but enough so that the lines of ska, reggae, folk sounded volumetric, weighty against the background of the main rock canvas.
Domestic price: 0.00UAH, International price: $0.00USD
This item is not available for the moment

Komu Vnyz. 4: Shevchenko. (EP). /digi-pack/.


..on the website the disc is indicated as "temporarily unavailable" just because it cannot be ordered separately. We have it in stock, and you can make it – but you'd better hurry up, because the number of the free discs is very limited!
Domestic price: 0.00UAH, International price: $0.00USD

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: 78.66UAH, International price: $8.28USD

Krapka. Khrestyky y nuli. /digi-pack/. (Noughts and Crosses)


...the guys combine seemingly incongruous stuff. The second album by the band turns out as a "salad" where the team aspires to demonstrate the entire range of their music's versatility. In addition to the ethno-hop traditional for "Krapka", in their songs the guys focus on such styles as trip-hop, sweet-jazz, and even boogie.
Domestic price: 154.66UAH, International price: $16.28USD

Liapis Trubetskoy. Zolotye jajcy. (Golden eggs)


Their music is the mixture of everything that gets into your hands and is reinforced by a powerful and skilful spiritual section. You can find practically everything here, starting with grunge and ending with raggy, and all that is fully stuffed with Byelorussian outlook and sense of humour...
Domestic price: 113.24UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Mad Heads XL. Nadiya Yea. (There Is Hope)


Rockabilly clothes have obviously become too small for them, that’s why now different trends like rock’n’roll, folk, punk, reggae and even a bit of swing have got mixed in this music. But the main thing is a powerful, like spring, and positive power.
Domestic price: 113.24UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Mad Heads XL. UkrainSKA. /eco-pack/.


The familiar melodies will arise in an updated, sometimes unexpected form, unknown ones will have a chance not to be forgotten. Folk songs in the style of Mad Heads XL, the sound is based on modern ska-punk without clear style limits. Positive, good moods and frantic drive – all the best from Mad Heads XL now in folk songs!
Domestic price: 113.24UAH, 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: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

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: 141.74UAH, International price: $14.92USD

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: 132.24UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Motor'rolla. ..sho komu ne jasno?..sche! (..Wut's Not Clear?..Once More!)


...having changed the vocalist, recorded a bright album and dramatically altered their image (playing true rock in neat suits – that is well-aimed, indeed)) – Motor'rolla has presently became one of the most interesting Ukrainian alternative teams. I mean alternative not as the music style, but just as a method of self-expression, world perception.
Domestic price: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Motor'rolla. Zabavy patriotiv. (Patriots' Fun)


More than 10 years have already passed since the moment of the first release of this album – by the way, it then appeared on cassettes. Thus, due to the present second release all fans of Motor’rolla have a considerable reason for joy – such rarities do not still appear too frequently in our space.
Domestic price: 113.24UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Okean Elzy. Dolce Vita. Remastered. /re-edition, digi-pack/.


Mastering of this release was performed in the USA, in the studio of the legendary sound producer Bob Ludwig, whose experience during the almost half-a-century career includes work with over 1200 musicians. This mastering was born at the height of "Dolce Vita Tour" in 2010 and as brightly as possible it conveys the integral, bright sound of the live concert performance.
Domestic price: 107.16UAH, International price: $11.28USD

Okean Elzy. Mira. /re-edition, digi-pack/. (Measure)


.. There is no pursuit for the sake of acknowledgement – and there is no temptation of observing style limitations, but there is the ability to make it maximally as exact as you consider necessary. Sheer rock music grows from this root, creativity not for the sake of freedom, but as its direct result.
Domestic price: 113.24UAH, International price: $11.92USD

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: 113.24UAH, International price: $11.92USD

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: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

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: 97.66UAH 53.68UAH
International price: $10.28USD $5.65USD

Yanka Kozyr's Orchestra. Shljahy. /digi-pack/. (Roads)


Here, city nervousness, sharpness surprisingly intersect – with rootedness in some most ancient cultural layers. Yanka seems to not even sing, but practice witchcraft – and she does not copy known standards, but just takes her skills from some primary source. Not that she revives – rather, gives birth anew to some mystic passageways between the world...
Domestic price: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

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: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Ot Vinta. Potom i krovju. /eco-pack/. (With Sweat and Blood)


To your attention – the second release of the album in another (cardboard) packaging. ...And then you somehow suddenly realize that you listen to topical songs, poignant enough to feel reluctant to laugh – but, at the same time, so fiery that, nevertheless, this does not destroy the mood...
Domestic price: 154.66UAH, International price: $16.28USD

O.Torvald. Prymat. /digi-pack/. (Primate)


..the group decided to remind themselves and everyone that they had started with post-punk. In contrast to the lyrical and melodic "Acoustic", here the emphasis is on the drive, so the rhythm section worked more assertively, and there are more than enough "heavy" guitars. The texts are, nevertheless, not devoid of certain lyricism, often irony...
Domestic price: 113.24UAH, International price: $11.92USD

O.Torvald. Akustychny/ Vykorystovuy nas. (2CD+DVD). /digi-pack/. (Acoustic/ Use Us)


"These two albums are a most vivid representation of the spirit of these six years on stage, – says the band leader Zhenya Halych. – While the last album "Primate" is already something new for us, and the debut one, "O.Torvald" was the search for our sound, "Acoustic" and "Use Us" are the basis of O.Torvald's work in recent year..."
Domestic price: 287.66UAH, International price: $30.28USD

O.Torvald. Ty Ye. /digi-pack/. (You Are)


A powerful album – at least, in terms of sounding. And it is not only about the flurry of sound – even though its energy does shake you well. But here it is a bit more delicate: eventually, the overall style has not undergone any major changes – but one cannot get rid of the feeling that within them O.Torvald stepped over themselves.

Perkalaba. Familia PERKALABA. Tribute to Gutzul Sound System. (2CD). /digi-pack/.


Like-minded friends – very different, sometimes diametrically. But all together it is wonderful – it impresses with its integrity, some unconscious common code. Do you want to learn something non-obvious about Perkalaba? Here's a look from behind the mirror. Two hours of Joy and Happiness for the Orchestra and all those who are com-passionate..

Pins. Mandrivnyk. (Wanderer)


We heard records by Pins for the first time not that long ago – about a year has passed, and then the group already had significant popularity among fans of radical art. In fact, even then it was clear that the team's debut album would be able to offer something interesting, not quite ordinary. To our mind, that's exactly how it happened.

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.

Postsense. Pyty po krapli. (Drinking In Drops)


..there are increasingly more "problem-free" songs. Perhaps, it is just a way of self-defense – but "Postsense" protects itself otherwise. This group – attacks. Does not turn away, does not invent politically correct formula. They call unpleasant things their proper names – so, their album is not for those seeking for alienated comfort.
Domestic price: 113.24UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Rolliks. Peretvorysya na zbroyu. /digi-pack/. (Turn Into Weapons)


The new album by Rolliks is not for those inclined to a moderate outlook. From the very beginning, the group's songs stood out due to their evident uncompromising nature – and in the new album this evident fact has not disappeared.
Domestic price: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Rura. Rura.


In order to make it a bit clearer at once, we will say the following: the group Rura was assisted in preparation and release of this album by, among others, the groups Perkalaba and Pan Pupets. And not only (im)morally but also physically...
Domestic price: 122.74UAH, 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: 113.24UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Start Up. Otrujeni mriji. (Poisoned Dreams)


Given the impression that it is able to produce – it is even a pity that out of the three albums by the group, only this – "Poisoned Dreams" – has been released on physical media. Powerful stuff – and not only due to the style. Although, sure, high-quality performance of heavy music – it is always interesting. But here it is also about the contrast...

International price: $10.28USD $9.15USD

Stoned Jesus. Seven Thunders Roar. /digi-pack/.


This is something new, born due to deep immersion into the old – perhaps, that is why the press release states: "Stoned Jesus play vintage rock in the best tradition of the '70s, inspired not only by heavy blues, early progressive and classical psychedelics, but even grunge, stoner and post-hardcore of the '90s"...
Domestic price: 217.74UAH, International price: $22.92USD

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: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Stoned Jesus. First Communion. /digi-pack/.


The third numbered album by Stoned Jesus has been released surprisingly quickly – there are only four compositions, but it's 40 minutes of vigorous and controversial beauty. Moreover (note the title), this is the album that could become the first one in the group's discography..
Domestic price: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Tanok Na Maydani Kongo. Syla. (The Force)


The first song of the album was written in Bordo last summer during the tour along Atlantic ocean's coast right after their previous release "Pozhezhi mista Babylon". With the song "Syla" ("The Force") a new album has began. Later it became clear the new album must have the same title. So, "Syla".
Domestic price: 113.24UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Tanok Na Maydani Kongo. Pozhezhi mista Babylon. /re-edition/. (Fires of the Babylon city)


It seems as if there were not less tricks in their songs, and the music had not grown fat, it had not developed a paunch, and the power of pressure had not disappeared anywhere. Everything is like that – and not like that. Besides youthful burning, you can feel a real adult confidence – in yourself, in your business, in the whole world.
Domestic price: 113.24UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Tanok Na Maydani Kongo. S.P.A.M. /digi-pack/.


Well, here it is, "S.P.A.M." – and it is worth having been waited for. In the deciphered form the name of the disc sounds in this way: "System of Programming an Alternative Mind". At least – this means that TNMKongo is really fed up with something.
Domestic price: 113.24UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Tanok Na Maydani Kongo. Dzerkalo. /digi-pack/. (The Mirror)


The Ukrainian 2014 has "frozen" someone, someone has turned into a lifeless mess, but what has happened to "Tanok" is like in that poem by Shevchenko – "Oh, I'll Sharpen My Comrade" ...The sharp, curious, sarcastic lyrics by Fozzey do not allow your mind any chance to sleep – and the music immediately nourishes all the other sensor...
Domestic price: 107.16UAH, International price: $11.28USD

Tartak. Muzychnyj lyst shchastja.


Sashko Polozhinskyi, the group’s frontman, once called himself a tender “hooligan”, if I am not mistaken. The same epithet may be applied to the art of the group “Tartak” in general, because notwithstanding a powerful energy explosive, peculiar practically for their every composition, this music is not aggressive.
Domestic price: 113.24UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Tartak. Opir materialiv. (Resistance of Materials)


He, sure, matures – but this for some reason does not prevent him from looking and seeing, noticing and being engaged, understanding and – speaking. Loudly, brightly, sometimes recklessly. It is not known whether "Tartak" is afraid of being not heard – but it definitely is not afraid of expressing the truth. Thus, with a noticeable shade of irony and even sarcasm – however, without cynicism..
Domestic price: 221.16UAH, International price: $23.28USD

Tartak. Vvichnist.


A simple and fair system of coordinates – this is what Tartak has created this time. And even if the Serpent gnaws its own tail forever – that does not mean that nothing can or should be changed within this circle. This question is always addressed to oneself. What have you done – you personally? Such a Tartak. Not too polite, fortunately..
Domestic price: 113.24UAH, International price: $11.92USD

TaRuta. EthnoLab. /digi-pack/.


..what is specific: the core of the Ukrainian archaic material is not hidden, not disguised as it could be and as it has already happened. On the contrary, the foundation is very expressive, while all the rest – it is like pastel lighting. All those small sounds of country, rock, fusion, disco, club electronics – they are as if New Year decorations on a living tree...
Domestic price: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

TaRuta, Roman Kolyada. Nebesna sotnya / Celestial Hundred. (EP). /digi-pack/.


...it is a very brief statement. But – the theme of it does not require a lot of words, after all. The main thing was to say that with dignity, and they have succeeded. Concise in the form, rich in the semantic content, and bright in the music representation.
Domestic price: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Tin Sontsya. Polum’jana ruta. (Flaming Rue)


Although the new disc also contains quite a bit of historical alliterations, they are, however, rather conditional, poetic. Here, foremost, the issue is already longing for pure freedom, the freedom to live and die by one's own choice, the ability to make such choice – and not to be afraid, not to retreat.
Domestic price: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Tin Sontsya. Tanets' sertsia. (Heart Dance).


"Heart Dance", perhaps, has become one of the most anticipated Ukrainian albums in this direction for the last couple of years. And it lives up to expectations – the work appears powerful, bright and deep. It seems – the best one so far in the group's discography.
Domestic price: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Tin' Sontsia. Hrim v kovalni Boha. (Thunder in God's Forge)


...While the team's previous album of 2011 "The Hearth's Dance" was rather a collection of the best new and well-known compositions, the new album is conceptually holistic, as if a separate page of the band's life, and it is dedicated to the Ukrainian chivalric tradition from ancient Rus times to the present.
Domestic price: 126.16UAH, International price: $13.28USD

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: 126.16UAH, International price: $13.28USD

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: 312.74UAH, International price: $32.92USD

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: 97.66UAH, International price: $10.28USD

Trans-Former. Styhla vyshnja. (A Rip Cherry)


And we will hear the music that is quite rare today in Ukraine – pure rock. Clear rhythms and texts not deprived of the existential, firm guitar turns and energetic male vocal – yes. This is just the color that has been recently lacking in the variety of Ukrainian music, and it’s a pity.
Domestic price: 113.24UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Fayno. Oznaky zhyttya. /digi-pack/. (Signs of Life)


This time "Fayno" once again offer their own lyrics and songs based on poems by such interesting and distinguished authors as Lazutkin, Lyubka, Honchar, Kiyanovska, Moskalets, etc. These interpretations are always interesting to listen to – at least, because the accents sometimes sound very different...
Domestic price: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Fakultet. [a moment]...


A new face appears on the sky of the Ukrainian music. A serious and resolute one. With thin but firm features. "Fakultet" has female lips and male system of muscles, has its steel softness in the look of the ageless eyes. The protest has no age – and it is, certainly, music of protest.
Domestic price: 145.16UAH, International price: $15.28USD

Flit. Odnoznachno! (Definitely!)


One should only give an attentive ear to the texts, and under the clothes of hooliganism, you will find not verbal tricks, but live reflections. Far not always these reflections are sunny and romantic, because our life as well happens to contain too much salt – but. Important is not only what you see, but also how you look. Flit, for example, does not brick itself up in deadlocks..
Domestic price: 113.24UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Cherry-Merry. Listen Loud! /digi-pack/.


According to participants of the band, the album "Listen Loud!" created in the difficult circumstances of the independent Ukrainian scene is a symbiosis of the melodic British indie and the assertive American guitar "garage rock." Short and precise. But it is worth adding that if the proportions were different...
Domestic price: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Schastja. Piensas ya en el amor?


...notwithstanding the title, it is not so sunny, but tense, even refractory, as it is a bit mad, stones are swimming as if it were the day after tomorrow. The theatre of absurdity. Happiness. And also about love...
Domestic price: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

SHyZO. Zroby tse... (Do It...)


The guys from the Chernigiv group ShyZO define their own music as sweet rock. At least, it refers to the debut album, which you now see in front of you – the musicians quite consciously decided to sweeten it, so that the way to the audience did not become too difficult and thorny. The position is, certainly, clear, thank you for warning – but let us disagree.

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.
