ShockolaD. Schedryi vechir z dobrym jazzom. /re-edition, mini-pack/. (Christmas Eve Wiz Good Jazz)
In its previous album "Pokosy", ShockolaD stepped away from jazz for an almost safe distance – the key definition of the work would be "ethno-lounge". Well, and this time the group seems to have decided to remix all familiar ingredients – both the ethno, and jazz, and acoustic lounge – and, sure, to season it with a few new colors. As, for example, the sunny flavor of electro-jazz of the 1970s, acid-jazz pinch originating from the 1990s, a flavored drop from Ukrainian VIA of the 1980s... There is even a carol by Vasyl Zhdankin based on lyrics by B.-I. Antonych – and there is even a little bit of reggae, which smoothly flows into a vivid, very expressive solo on the floyar... In short, the new work has enough of everything – and still ShockolaD managed to throw in a measure of all that. Anyway, this is the final impression: the album "Christmas Eve..." can be recommended both for fans of jazz, and lounge fans, and lovers of a fresh approach to folklore. It is on these three pillars that the album stands, exactly among the three directions it successfully and harmoniously balances. So, surprisingly, everyone is going to be pleased)

Marinita. Marinita. /digi-pack/.


Marinita is, in fact, Maryna Zakharova, who was the heart of the very original project Anno Domini. So, Marinita is a certain development to the story, testing herself in a new, even more open format: with the opportunity to collaborate without any special linking to a certain composition. The debut album under the new name...

ShockolaD, Ewa Novel. Nova. /digi-pack/.


..the circle is closed for them to reach something new: from the initial composition, only Anastasia Litvinyuk and Ihor Hnydyn have stayed, the rest of the lines are within responsibility of our Polish brethren led by Ewa Novel. And somehow quite expectedly the band's music has regained its distinct ethno-jazz colors, stepping aside from the previous lounge rails.
Domestic price: 134.46UAH, International price: $19.92USD

Insight, Nino Katamadze. Yellow.


..And there ever is love for the music – no matter where musicians roam following the quest while working on new material. Yellow. Life-giving. Hot and humid. Warm. Dry and mirage-like. Joyful. Acute. Crumbling. Spicy. Soft. Diverse and – alive... Listen.
Domestic price: 109.89UAH, International price: $16.28USD

Anya Tchaykovska, Acoustic Quartet. Krosna. /premium, digi-pack/. (Hoop)


(this disc is an exclusive thing, and you cannot buy it. But you can get it as a present). Living water – that's how this music is heard. And it catches you and carries on the waves, and even over them, and it does not let you freeze – and at the same time it fascinates you as if you stand in the middle of the wind and shine. Total magic, what can I say..
Domestic price: 0.00UAH, International price: $0.00USD

Kristina Marti, Laura Marti. Chanapar. /digi-pack/.


Sincere, masterful, colorful, delicious – fragrant ethno-jazz and abundance of subtle patterns, and none of the project participants stay in the shade. But the singing... So bright, sharp, emotional – sometimes tender and transparent, cozy – sometimes so deep that when listening you forget to breathe...
Domestic price: 147.96UAH, International price: $21.92USD

Er.J.Orchestra. The Unicorn. (remastered). /digi-pack/.


This is the third album in the official discography of Er.J.Orchestra. And I really hope that it will be not a stop, not completion of the trilogy, but one of the many pearls on the thread. Such music simply must be incarnated, sound, fill the space – at least because honest beauty, dignity, authenticity live in it...
Domestic price: 235.71UAH, International price: $34.92USD

Nino Katamadze, Insight. Green.


Very transparent, juicy, quiet and confident and yet full of irrepressible life – this is what this work appears like. Stylistically, it continues the trend including the albums "Black" and "Red" – the pure jazz-rock line, with no direct immersions into the lounge or symphonicity. But in a much softer, tender version.
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Yuliya Roma. Raduysya. Ukrainian carols. /digi-pack/. (Rejoice)


To enrich them with modern colors without destroying the subtle paths of the light joy inherent in Christmas carols and shchedrivkas – which is not an easy task. Since it requires great attention and tolerance. Finally, it just requires love for this music, for the roots – and love that is creative. And it seems – they have succeeded.
Domestic price: 107.46UAH, International price: $15.92USD

DomRa. Kupal‘s‘ka.


Victor Solomin is virtually the only jazz domra-player in Ukraine, therefore the both of his ethno-jazz projects – "SolominBand" and "DomRa" – have here no immediate analogues just by definition. Besides, "DomRa" can boast two key instruments at once: those are the domra and the vocal, and it is they that provide the "ethnic component" of the sounding here.
Domestic price: 87.21UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Er.J.Orchestra. The Unicorn Live. (2CD).


...each of them separately does not really have almost anything too sophisticated, to say nothing about the superfluous – but these transparent lines interlace so pointedly and charmingly, that an indescribably rich matter of light appears. In the case of Er.J.Orchestra, it is not only about concert improvisations – the issue is discovery and creation of old-new worlds, no less.
Domestic price: 242.46UAH, International price: $35.92USD

Nino Katamadze, Insight. Blue.


...the fact that creation of the concert concept and recording of the album took place in Kyiv, and the sound direction, mixing and mastering of the album was also done by Kyivites – these are no doubt pleasant and significant nuances. To be related to appearance of such music – this is a noble business. Nino Katamadze is just truly – special, and that is the essence...
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Igor Zakus, Z-Band. Kolomyyky. /digi-pack/. (Kolomyikas)


"Kolomyikas" is a good album with bright pieces that are able to capture the audience as it is, even without associations with the material it derives from. In the end, there was no "weak link" in the team of the album’s creators. That is, probably, the reason why, without regard to the intense structure, there is within the music fabric – freedom, which makes it possible to breathe deeply.
Domestic price: 114.21UAH, International price: $16.92USD

Igor Khoma. Ukrainian jazz.


Even today not too much of such music is being created in Ukraine – to say nothing about the middle of the last century.. Igor Khoma managed to involve really wonderful musicians into his band – the rhythm sections, the winds, the strings and the keys in various plays pleasantly surprise. But still the most striking thing is the authentic Ukrainian spirit of the music represented here.
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Fusion Orchestra. Apocrypha. /digi-pack/


Yes, in this music you can still hear well the hot southern sun – but still, on the foreground, you have original cool elegance. And one can feel based on which law the space of the disc is designed: rather not to satiate, but to extend this space as much as possible – but softly.
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Yuriy Kovtun. BraviBelli.


...the album at once creates elated, festive mood – but in a surprising way. In the correct way. Because, although about a half of the compositions can hardly be called merry ones – a smile is very expressly felt in them. Somewhere dim, somewhere transparent, somewhere dreamy, somewhere thoughtful – but it is present in each piece, and it warms.
Domestic price: 120.96UAH, International price: $17.92USD

Motion Trio. Pictures from the Street.


It seems to me that none who has at least once heard performance by Motion Trio – and the more so none who has seen it – will ever forget, mix it up with anybody. And the thing is not only original composition – although you will hardly find among performers of jazz, art rock, folk fusion another trio what would consist exceptionally of accordions.
Domestic price: 174.96UAH, International price: $25.92USD

Er.J.Orchestra. On the Hill Again. (special CD+DVD edition). /digi-pack/


Sure, Er. J. Orchestra is one of the most interesting Ukrainian projects in the domain of ethno-fusion today. And not only Ukrainian ones. Actually, this music is so organically intertwined into the world sound fabric – it is impossible to limit it with any borders, geographic or stylistic, etc.
Domestic price: 600.21UAH, International price: $88.92USD

Er.J.Orchestra. Gabrielius. /digi-pack/


Only natural things can be like that – the sea in any weather, a streamlet somewhere in the mountains, the eyes of a horse or a deer, a green greeting of an old willow, a smile of an infant …
Domestic price: 674.46UAH, International price: $99.92USD

Fusion Orchestra. Octagon. /digi-pack/


It is great pleasure – to listen to music that has let in, changed, satiated and breathed out so many bright impressions, lives, root... When music is wide open – everybody can drink from it, see one's face in it, find in its one's real.
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

DakhaBrakha. Shlyakh. /premium, digi-pack/. (The Road)


This album was ready in the autumn of 2016 – but the musicians were in doubt, as a result they literally re-created it from scratch (the sound producer was Yuryi Hustochka). And it turned out – superb, literally. Fragile like the frosty crust on morning snow, thick and fragrant like masala – an album of hope, an album of surprise. Steppe blues..
Domestic price: 249.48UAH, International price: $36.96USD

Pravytsya. Kryvy tanets. /digi-pack/. (Crooked Dance)


"Pravytsya" do not limit themselves to a certain style – in their interpretations one can hear jazz, blues, soul, rock aspects, even the Ukrainian country music in the Irish style. Without unnecessary extravagance, but fancy – and, at the same time, I would say, very cautious..
Domestic price: 120.96UAH, International price: $17.92USD

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: 107.46UAH, International price: $15.92USD

Taras Chubay, Kozak System. Pisni Samonavedennya: HOMIN' Songs. /digi-pack/. (Self-Direction Songs)


..the union of Chubay and KS has produced something third as an output. The basis of the album is the Ukrainian folklore in the entourage of Jamaican rhythms, although in the course of the work they added a diversity of other spices to it: both in the details of the arrangements, and in the form of the lyrics by Moskalets and Antonych...
Domestic price: 120.96UAH, International price: $17.92USD

HraBlya band, Antin Mukharsky. Mama-Anarkhia. /digi-pack/. (Mama the Anarchy)


Today it is called Severe Ukrainianization. Because one can definitely say: this punk chanson does not care about tolerance, its objective is to extract to light of the day all the obsolete cliches and to pretty well trample on them. In a loud, energetic way – and with such joyful rage that will make one either writhe, or eventually start laughing and recover...
Domestic price: 109.89UAH, International price: $16.28USD

Vuraj. Rajok. /digi-pack/.


Belarus bands famous here are specific in their artistic, nonlinear attitude to arrangements, self-irony and – they are somehow particularly enlightened, I guess. When one listens to them – sometimes it seems that they are singing the anthem of the Sun, facing the dark wall of the ancient forest. And Vuraj in this regard is no exception.
Domestic price: 120.96UAH, International price: $17.92USD

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: 120.96UAH, International price: $17.92USD

Folknery. Korysni rechi. /digi-pack/. (Useful Things)


...while grounding on Ukrainian folk songs (not played out at all), the musicians threw into the pot a whole bunch of everything – African rhythms, rock groove, ethnic and electronic instruments – and they mixed that up well. The result turned out pretty hot to taste, diverse, sometimes quite unexpected.
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

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: 107.46UAH, International price: $15.92USD

Hycz Orkestr. Tsilyi. /eco-pack, premium edition/. (Whole)


HYCZ Orchestra are intelligent hooligans who manage to implement sometimes non-obvious musical ideas in an elegant and obviously quite simple way. But this simplicity is a consequence of technical skills, creative freedom, tact and taste, so fragrant surprises can be found in almost every song of "Whole" album, the potency of it is okay.
Domestic price: 114.21UAH, International price: $16.92USD

ILLaria. Vilna. (2nd edition). /digi-pack/. (Free)


...the album "Free" resembles that very puzzle, an element of mosaics that was lacking in order that the picture became integral, completed. It – disregarding, let me repeat it, the status of the debut one – seems to sum up some results, outline the visible and known space and, thus, free space for a step forward.
Domestic price: 107.46UAH, International price: $15.92USD

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: 120.96UAH, International price: $17.92USD

Folk band "Burdon". Divytsia. /digi-pack/. (The Maiden)


.. it is done by people in love. Hence – the ability to see deep beauty in simple things, the ability to truly recognize affinity of different music cultures and the ability to transmit this joy of cognition, the joy of open eyes..
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

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: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Dark Patrick. Rise of the Underworld. /mini-pack/.


..It’s hard to pinpoint exact influences that aptly mirror what Dark Patrick is going for here, though a safe bet would want to include nods to numerous strata of organic electronica, soundtrack ambient, world ethnotronica, psych and trip-hop. Additionally, the band claims some affiliation to the fertile soils of reggae, dub and trance...
Domestic price: 120.96UAH, International price: $17.92USD

Taras Zhytynsky, Iryna Zhytynska. Duet.


The album "Duet" is a combination of not only two voices. This is synthesis of two very different manners of performance, schools, music styles, and aesthetics. Since Taras Zhytynsky is a rock singer, and Iryna Zhytynska is an opera singer (mezzo-soprano), a soloist of Wroclaw Opera House...
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Shopping Hour. Sunce Viter. /digi-pack/. (The Sun Wind)


Music contents of this release do not differ from the premium edition (apart from a hidden surprise track). Differences relate only to the external design – besides, there is no booklet with the lyrics here. Hence the lower price of this edition compared to the premium one.
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

DakhaBrakha. Yahudky. /second release, digi-pack/.


DahaBraha is sometimes water – feeding, cherishing, carrying and guarding. And sometimes – the thinnest blade cutting a mustard grain in half in order to find there – wind, sun, freedom. Nobody knows what exactly each of us will find here, but we are sure – to find...
Domestic price: 201.96UAH, International price: $29.92USD

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: 114.21UAH, International price: $16.92USD

AtmAsfera. ..forgotten love.


On the one hand, everything is simple – it contains both a rich instrumental component, and the ethno-jazz-rock mixture with the psychedelic aftertaste, and, certainly, the magic seasoning of ancient language. On the other hand – everything is also simple: the soul was invested here, one can hear this – and, maybe, that is why the music penetrates so deeply...
Domestic price: 120.96UAH, International price: $17.92USD

DakhaBrakha. Light. /digi-pack/.


...the content of the album in the style aspect is ambiguous – but, definitely, interesting. This time to their branded ethno-chaos they have added quite a bit of very diverse elements: here you have soul, and D'n'B, and hip-hop, and art-rock, and almost jazz decorations. It appears cool.
Domestic price: 120.96UAH, International price: $17.92USD

Shopping Hour. Sunce Viter. (premium edition). /digi-pack/. (The Sun Wind)


Is the studio version different from the concert one? No doubt. Without disclosing all secrets, it is enough to say that it remains up to date to go beyond one language and one culture. In my opinion, the album represents the Ukrainian music, but the music which is done by the new generation. It is the product of the new world. The entire world.
Domestic price: 107.46UAH, International price: $15.92USD

PoliKarp. Barvinochok. /digi-pack/. (Periwinkle)


Taking the Carpathian and Polissya folklore as a basis, PoliKarp modernizes it very carefully – the key melody and, actually, the manner of singing remain unchanged. While speaking about rhythmic structures and additional melody lines – here already musicians release their fantasy. And that is why in their music it is possible to hear impacts of outright rock, and jazz, and funk, and dub..
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Ojra. Krokovoje koleso. /digi-pack/


First I listened to the Ojra’s records somewhere at the end of 90-ties, yet then it was the attempt to join the archaic and the up-to-date. The staff of the group changed several times since then, and they didn’t give up to search. Of course, a variety of creative paths they made gave its outcome: one of the best, I think, neo-folk records of all Ukrainian discography of the recent years.
Domestic price: 120.96UAH, International price: $17.92USD

DakhaBrakha. Na mezhi. /digi-pack/. (On the Verge)


..here, "On the Verge" – the force of water is revealed very perceptibly, magic of quite a different level appears, intended for other purposes. That is, the first works were just to burn everything old, not able to live on – to clear the space. The new work – must feed the new, fresh relying on those roots that did not subdue to the action of fire. That verge from which creation of the new myth..
Domestic price: 120.96UAH, International price: $17.92USD

Folk band "Burdon". Taistra Chuhaistra.


Burdon is able even from some rather whimsical, complicated rhythms, tempos and melodies to produce such a refined, well-balanced space that both people and clouds, and trees quite freely, naturally start dancing in it – isn't that a miracle… And nobody interferes with anyone, steps on a shade – vice versa, there is mutual complementing and filling. There is – mutual understanding.
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Enver Izmailov Trio. Minaret.


From ballads to dance, from folklore through art rock to meditation and jazz – I would call this world fusion, as a lot of roots from the whole world have intertwined here. However, all the plays have their common root: the basis is creative re-consideration of music of Crimean Tatars and other Black Sea peoples.
Domestic price: 627.21UAH, International price: $92.92USD

Folk band "Burdon". Re: Karpatia.


The mosaic that results is as bright as deep – "Burdon" once again opens the beauty of old music virtually lost for large audiences. And, at the same time, throws a tank of oxygen into the flame of modern folk – let it burn brightly and not die away...
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Olexa Kabanov. Dale of Muses.


The album "Valley of Muses" is, in fact, a Ukrainian project in the domain of world music – at that, presumably, virtually the first one in Ukraine. It is strange and nice to hear how organically there sound together, for example, the lyre, the deeply Ukrainian violin, – and the Indian percussion. Or the mandolin with the drymba – why not a couple?
