Molotov 20. Korali. The modern treatment of traditional Ukrainian folkmusik. /digi-pack/
I do not know if this disc will become an unexpectedness for you, but I know for sure that for me it is a part of that movement for which I have been waiting for a long time. I mean, being a city-dweller and an average person, I cannot listen to an authentic singing, for example, for quite a long time. I can listen to it only for a short period of time, though I wish I could do that longer as I find it to be very interesting. But unfortunately I lack patience as I need not only voice melodies, but also more or less complicated rhythms and some additional melodious lines. I would like to hear an organic interweaving of old and new melodies, sensible eclecticism and universality. I would like the language of music to be understandable irrespective of social and aesthetic stereotypes, in which a person has been brought-up. One may certainly say that the language of music is universal and understandable for everybody. Its true. But when we are talking about the roots, about the interpretation of something old with the help of modern means, wed rather prefer there were no primitiveness and vulgarity in that. Thats why it is very good that the projects like this one appear, because it is search and movement. Sometimes it is more successful, sometimes it is not so successful. Still the search is taking place. Lets watch it go on.

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.

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.

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...

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...

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.

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"?

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.

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

Tanya Radosteva, Aby MC. 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...

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...

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, Marta Shpak. Enlighted. The modern treatment of traditional Ukrainian folk music. /digi-pack/


Rhythms of "Osyayni" bewitch with their soft, silent pace. Marta, in her turn, also obviously appears here not by chance. Her voice has a very interesting feature it somehow inexplicably combines in itself the past and the future. It seems to be native and somehow not from here.
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.
Domestic price: 199.25UAH, International price: $18.28USD

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.
