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.

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...

Braty Hadyukiny. Live a Bruxelles.


The first edition was released in the digi-pack – well, and this release is executed in usual plastic boxes. That's what we wrote about the first edition: ...
Domestic price: 221.16UAH, International price: $23.28USD

Braty Hadyukiny. Made in Ukraine. /digi-pack/.


...this is about us. The ordinary people in the changing times, when it is both scary, and funny, and one wants to go faster, while – one needs to move carefully. Because nobody but us will live through these times for u... That's how it is put in the song "Play!": "Dad taught me – my dad, the last Jedi – play, play on your drymba, play the song of joy..."
Domestic price: 145.16UAH, International price: $15.28USD

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: 97.66UAH, International price: $10.28USD

Vasyl Hontarsky, Vasya Club. Hipan. (anniversary edition). /digi-pack/. (Hipster)


An anniversary  (10 years since the release) re-issue on CD of one of the most prominent Ukrainian rock albums. For the sake of this release, complete re-mastering of the material from the original master tapes was performed – and the original author design was restored.
Domestic price: 135.66UAH, International price: $14.28USD

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

Vytivky. Sil‘s‘ke kokhannja. (Rural Love)


...In other words, it is high-quality, deliciously cooked, clever and good-natured banter – whatever you might say, that is a rare phenomenon. That is, we know how to laugh, but with a light heart – there we not always succeed, right?..
Domestic price: 113.24UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Viy. Chorna Rillia.


Viy rock-group plays melodic rock-music with big gothic and authentic influences. Secret energy of ancient pagan Slavdom may be felt in every their song.
Domestic price: 202.16UAH, International price: $21.28USD

The VYO. Zeleny. /digi-pack/. (Green)


With this music – there are all the chances to swim to the summer almost unnoticeably, without straining where this is not needed. Ukrainian reggae with a mischievous smile and a hardened core. Just put on repeat – so much so that your hand reaches out for that – and you should not interfere with it.
Domestic price: 113.24UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Voanerges. Hay "Da" Maky. (Steppe'N'Poppies)


No visible haste, confident motions, precise lines, rich colors – but natural, not artificial. There is no dissonance in these bright flashes – that is why they come into notice, and at that they are not boring. There seems to be less external drive now, but the internal force has become more perceptible – and it touches deeper than the ordinary drive.
Domestic price: 141.74UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Voanerges. Boogaj Boogie.


This is already the third official studio album by "Voanerges" – and it seems to be the most complete, fully mature one. The fully jazz solos, trip-hop, funk trends, the archaic manner of singing, ska moods – all of that is here. However, these things are performed precisely – therefore, they are perceived exactly as beautiful decorations, not as a way of showing off.
Domestic price: 141.74UAH, International price: $14.92USD

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

Vognesmih. Kraine U. (Country U).


Various synthesis is, actually, a characteristic sign of music by Vognesmih – as it has two powerful grounds. One is rock sounding, strong, deep, modern. The second is the ethnic component, which is based on the pleasantly extensive palette of authentic instruments.
Domestic price: 132.24UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Vopli Vidopliassova. Lado. (maxi single). /digi-pack/


A deserved answer to all the skeptics who said that VV would no longer be able to compose a single strong piece. They've managed – and work over a few new pieces is in process now. Moreover, "Lado" is, presumably, truly one of the most beautiful songs in the whole history of VV.. If one dared drawing conclusions on the basis of only one song – it would be possible to say that VV is acquiring a new face.
Domestic price: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

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. 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

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: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

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. Perversia.


"Haydamaky" have surpassed themselves – in any case, they have surpassed the level, which they set with the previous album. At the same time, its main characteristic feature - drive without brakes - was not only preserved by them, but also developed. Yet, their step is not of youths, but of men.
Domestic price: 113.24UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Haydamaky. Kobzar.


Gaydamaky are one of those groups – that enjoy really loud popularity in Europe. Loud enough to engage in listening to Ukrainian music even those people who have never ever heard about Ukraine before, to say nothing about its music..
Domestic price: 113.24UAH, International price: $11.92USD

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

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: 113.24UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Hycz Orkestr. Pid markoyu Ivana Yakovycha. /premium, mini-book+CD/. (Under the Brand of Ivan Yakovych)


..pleasant to hold, pleasant to present. And it should be presented, because it is, after all, a really cool, outstanding, ingenious album. Not just an album. A small chest of treasures. Especially with the recognizable color tones characteristic of a particular nation – but also with the HYCh's skill of creatively designing the themes so that to blur boundaries, to reach the universal..
Domestic price: 179.74UAH, International price: $18.92USD

Gogol Bordello. Multi Kontra Culti vs. Irony.


During the recent years, Gogol Bordello has become, probably, one of the most popular eccentric bands in the entire world – while it plays not quite, so to speak, commercial music. Though, on the other hand, in these songs so much is mixed that the definition "gipsy ska-punk" does not convey even a half of it...
Domestic price: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

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: 135.66UAH, International price: $14.28USD

Gorgisheli. Rombambar.


So, the third album. The one who tracks it from the beginning – probably, will notice that the group does not change masks but sticks in its motion with a certain direction. And that is why one can see very well that the sounding becomes more confident and, at the same time, transparent – in other words, quality noticeably increases..
Domestic price: 113.24UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Green Silence. .


The group says about itself that in the search for its own style it arrived at funk with jazz – and afterwards added into the mixture blues, Brazilian and Hutsul ethno, and not only that. The search continues, windows are open. Suggestions are being accepted. In the end, it is really so – here, it is possible to hear a mixture of "everything with everything", but the mixture is sustained, not aimless eclecticism.
Domestic price: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Gutzul Magik Foundation. Molfar. /digi-pack/.


"Molfar", I guess, is about the fact that there is no difference where from and where to, because there as always here-and-now. Where there is no place for hope – hope requires memory and time – and here all the space is occupied with.. attention? I do not even know – you stay in this space while the album plays on, and then this space just plays on in you..
Domestic price: 126.16UAH, International price: $13.28USD

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.
Domestic price: 113.24UAH, International price: $11.92USD

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: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

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: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

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: 255.74UAH, International price: $26.92USD

DrymbaDaDzyga. Live.


Inna Prokopchuk could be earlier heard in the folklore group "Lukiny Rosy". But starting from 2006, a new group at her participation began swiftly spinning up – actually, that is DrymbaDaDzyga. At that, the whirl sped up so quickly that the motherland did not even have time to really notice how another bright flower of folk-funk-rock bloomed in its fields.
Domestic price: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Iryna Zhytynska, Taras Zhytynsky. 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: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

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: 107.16UAH, International price: $11.28USD

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: 107.16UAH, International price: $11.28USD

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

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

Los Colorados. Shmiraky. (Scamps)


Los Kolorados is a striking example of how a joke may turn into something more. In any case, hardly anyone expected that their deliberately amateur video will result in millions of hits on the web. And, as a consequence, in invitations to perform in Germany, where within the context of this unexpected wave their debut album was released...

Vasyl Lyuty (bojan Zhyvosyl). Orijana. Zhyttja jak je. (Life As It Is)


Well, finally a new disc by the boyan Zhyvosyl – Vasyl Lyuty – has appeared. I think that anyone who had already heard his songs before could not help waiting for something new. There is such force in his texts, and in music – live indeed – that it is almost impossible to listen indifferently, not to get penetrated with it.
Domestic price: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Mandry. Lehenda pro Ivanka ta Odarku.


..."Lehenda pro Ivanka ta Odarku" is a collection of fairy tales, legends and stories which "Mandry" spread in front of our reverie eyes as a rich carpet. Some paints are up to a pain native and familiar, others are absolutely not familiar and even exotic...
Domestic price: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Mandry. Romansero Pro Nizhnu Korolevu. 2nd edition. (Romansero about the Tender Queen)


They say it is not by chance that Foma with his musicians repeatedly played music in the streets of Kyiv. Listen – he conveys the true urban slang, this is exactly the Kyiv Ukrainian language, moreover – as it was in the early twentieth century.
Domestic price: 221.16UAH, International price: $23.28USD

Mandry. Rusalky. /slim box/. (Water-nymphes)


Have a trip through the world Ukrainian folk tales and legends.
Domestic price: 221.16UAH, International price: $23.28USD

Mandry. Doroha. (Road)


A new CD has got a title "The Way" not by accident: this name corresponds to the content of the album and to its mood. The road, journeys, nature, love…
Domestic price: 154.66UAH, International price: $16.28USD

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

Mad Heads. 8. /eco-pack/.


It seems that the musicians just played the songs as they wished, and, due to all their previous experience, it turned out multicolored. That is, there are elements of both rockabilly, ska, and ethno, and honest rock without frills – but there is no issue of purity of style, everything just works for the sake of the resulting drive. Works well..
Domestic price: 113.24UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Mad Heads XL. UkrainSKA. /vinyl 140g LP/.


German pressing (EDC), black 140gr vinyl LP. Actually, these are 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!

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

Mlyn. All-Ukrainian Music Collection. /digi-pack/. (Mill)


...However, they thus somehow fit into the concept of "ethno-rock" – but nevertheless the entire picture comes out very colorful. And – it is nice that within the same style one can hear so diverse, unconventional, brilliant music.
Domestic price: 113.24UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Mlyn-2014. All-Ukrainian Music Collection. /digi-pack/. (Mill)


"Mlyn" (Mill) is a mixture of the brightest representatives of the national world music and the only conceptual collection in Ukraine that annually presents the best representatives of the domestic neo-folk. With such a collection, creators of the project aim to promote and disseminate the Ukrainian music heritage, make it interesting and accessible for the modern listener.

Antin Mukharsky. Zlokohoochy Man.


Actually, once such songs were characteristic of only one country in the world – but since then the Earth has become considerably more rounded. Consequently, maybe, there is nothing strange in that we observe appearance of sheer Ukrainian songs in the country style. In the end, we have appropriate landscape...
Domestic price: 113.24UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Antin Mukharsky. Snizhana Yehorova. Village Glam. /digi-pack/


It is very cool that Antin Muharsky has not abandoned his field research of rural glamour in the Ukrainian context. Moreover – it seems that he has decided to undertake for this good cause a real family contract. But the main thing is that Muharsky has again succeeded in adding to the dozen of songs of the album a double portion of positive pepper..
Domestic price: 113.24UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Antin Mukharsky, HraBlya band. 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: 113.24UAH, International price: $11.92USD

N.Try. Jakby ja mih znaty... (If I Could Know...)


Even their texts alone would already be quite sufficient to advantageously stand out against the majority – no doubt. This, if you wish, already really looks like rock poetry. Well, and plus – actually the music. Two bright constituents perfectly merge in it. On the one hand, this is powerful rock. On the other – warm freshness arising due to participation of not quite ordinary, as for rock, instruments matters here – a pan-pipe, accordion, domra.
Domestic price: 154.66UAH, International price: $16.28USD

Odyn v kanoe. Odyn v kanoe. (2CD). /digi-pack/.


..the debut album by "Odyn V Kanoe." At one breath, on one wave, unhurriedly and swiftly at the same time. This band managed to somehow unobtrusively enter the group of quiet sensations in the Ukrainian scene of recent years. What is the secret? Maybe, the depth of the eyes and no masks..
Domestic price: 255.74UAH, International price: $26.92USD

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

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...

Ot Vinta. Pilotka. /digi-pack/. (The Forage Cap)


..there is so much drive that one can hardly believe its "acousticity". And one of the causes of such sound is the truly rich set of instruments used by the musicians during the recording (guitar, banjo, harmonica, kazoo, ukulele, flute, kozobass, xylophone, etc.). Very rich and bright – just like always with "Ot Vinta"..

Ocheretyany Kit. Dvadtsiat krokiv. /digi-pack/. (Twenty Steps)


..it is absence of didacticism in the lyrics and of any mention of magic, as opposed to the skill of noticing the details that make up the everyday life – but noticing in a way that the listener slightly shifts the "assembly point". The reality's magic is routine, this is what one can hear and feel here at full force.

Ocheretyany Kit. Dvadtsiat krokiv. /book+CD/. (Twenty Steps)


..So, this book/album is also a small gallery, a combination of various arts as an attempt to achieve the magical effect of transfer of "reed worlds", and not only. In this search for the miraculous, we have tried to find our path over the 20 years – in 20 steps – towards something larger and better.

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..

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..

Propala Hramota. Tseyvo. (Sorta)


Here it is – real, serious, exact. You know, about such dicks one is both eager and reluctant to speak – they bend to one's soul with their curves so that words become almost superfluous. But it is also desirable to keep quiet about such things only eye-to-eye, in order to by all means share one's feeling, warmth, acceptance.
Domestic price: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Propala Hramota. Honor. (Pride)


I would not like to speak here in a lot of detail about the ability to combine the green with the hot, and the fretted with the tart – these specific features have acquired even more expressive outlines from the times of the debut disc. Propala Hramota boldly creates modern folklore – do not be too lazy to listen to the lyrics, this is a really important decoration of every song.
Domestic price: 113.24UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Propala Hramota. Chudernatska syla. /eco-pack/. (Freakish Power)


It was planned that this disc would only be sold at concerts, but now "Freakish Power" can encounter us anywhere and anytime, and this is – incredibly good. Another fragrant brick for Podillya foundation... I sincerely advise you to cast away umbrellas and the rest of protection means – otherwise there is the risk of just failing to contain.

Red Cardell. Narodzhennja. (Naitre) (Birth)


"Red Cardell" wished to create an album open for the whole world. As a result, French chanson was mixed with African rhythms, Ukrainian authentic singing – with Oriental, Asian melodies, Celtic archaic – with elements of trip- and hip-hop. And all this together laughs, dances, gets a bit sad, makes love...
Domestic price: 126.16UAH, International price: $13.28USD

Rock-H. Spivanochky pro lyubov. /digi-pack/. (Melodies About Love)


It would seem that with such a title one should expect from the album if not pink tears with ruffles – then, in any case, some average ballads. But "Rock-H" from the very beginning stood out against the background, and this time, too, they do not disappoint.
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

Rura. Moja ljubov. (My Love)


Extremely fast, really – it seems that there are yet no analogues to such speed on the Ukrainian scene. Just a few months have passed from the moment when Rura released her debut album – and here we already have the second album, and active work on the third album is in process. Surprising, but also nice capacity – isn't it?
Domestic price: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Rura. Bdzhilka Mayja. (Maya Bee)


...it is possible to interfuse banter with sorrow – and not to be too keen on how that will be perceived from the positions of commercial success. It is possible to laugh loudly at pop-hits, and then to suddenly play such heartfelt lyrical poetry that even words will not be really needed – and to only care that both the first and the second things were done sincerely.
Domestic price: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

The Root Boys. On the Air.


...there is not a single song in the ordinary understanding on the album (that is, there are no vocals at all). But the music palette remained no less bright – this is, ultimately, already a programmatic cocktail: in the atmosphere of the middle of the last century, melodies with characteristic features of country, rockabilly, blue-grass styles are mixed, with some elements of jazz and rock.
Domestic price: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Oleh Skrypka. Vidrada. (premium release). /digi-pack/. (Delight)


The premium release includes: a cardboard digi-pack instead of a plastic box, as well as the song that, regardless its great popularity, has not until now have its official release. Do not miss it! limited edition (500 copies)
Domestic price: 135.66UAH, International price: $14.28USD

Oleh Skrypka. Schedryk /Carol of the Bells. (single). /digi-pack/


For almost a century "Schedryk" has been traveling in the world in the truly fantastic arrangement of the genius Ukrainian composer Mykola Leontovych. However, one should not forget that the age of the schedrivka as it is must be already more than a thousand years, and every generation of performers fills it with energy and pulsations of its time.

Oleh Skrypka. Inkoly. /premium release, digi-pack/. (Sometimes)


There was Oleg Skripka solo concert in Kyiv Politechnical institute in 2005 summer. Ensemble of Song & Dance of Military Forces of Ukraine took part in that concert. The songs, that were recorded on that concert, are presented now on this beautiful CD.
Domestic price: 135.66UAH, International price: $14.28USD

TaRuta. Narodzheni v LYUBOVI. /digi-pack/. (Born in LOVE)


11 tracks, but they are somehow so saturated and diverse that it may seem there are twice more of them. First, there are both author's and folk texts there – and some author's ones really resemble folk songs, this is a compliment.. And second – within one album, actually, three manners and ways of performing are mixed: skilful "folk" singing, powerful ethno-rock and the "acoustics"..
Domestic price: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

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

TyshaKids. Zhyva vinila. (Live Vinyl)


..the album is not homogeneous, it has both sadness and joy, and lightness, and twilight, and seriousness, as different expressions of the same – and beautiful – face. While there is no – fear, although words about fear still can be heard from time to time. However, everybody trying to follow his/her path honestly unavoidably reflects on that – and slender honesty can be felt in every song of the album.
Domestic price: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

TIK. LiteraDura.


"TIK" is a group that right from the first song conquered admiration of the entire country. At that, it was not a protest march or hymn, no heroic lyricism, pathos, aplomb – no. They simply quietly, with a somewhat sad smile began singing about "...weird creatures without brain and without roots" – and this was enough..
Domestic price: 113.24UAH, International price: $11.92USD

TIK. tyKhYJ. (Silent)


Consequently, the crisis of the second album has pass successfully – and was it ever there? The first thing that strikes one's eye is the change of the general mood. The first disc was saturated with positive, smiling – but sadness. The second disc is quite a different thing. "You love brandy cola, and I love wine, and it means that we won't be together anyway"...
Domestic price: 113.24UAH, International price: $11.92USD

TIK. Lyuby ty Ukrainu. 10 rokiv. (CD+DVD). /digi-pack/. (Do Love Ukraine. 10 Years)


TIK approached their 10th anniversary seriously and have released not a collection of the best – but a new album with fresh material. Not exclusively serious. And also – with a significant bonus: a separate concert DVD, which is its additional section also includes half-dozen videos and a photo collection.
Domestic price: 154.66UAH, International price: $16.28USD

TIK. Vesilny. (Wedding)


...the trademark self-irony is still there. To make sure – the first song from the album will be enough. Though, indeed, the rest of the songs also meet this sort of a definition: irony plus clownery. Need I say that both the first and second are not limited to smiles and jokes, subtle and not too subtle?
Domestic price: 113.24UAH, International price: $11.92USD

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

Ti, Khto Vidayut. Movlennyek. (collection edition). /digi-pack/.


On the one hand – Mokh (Oleg Hnativ) has read authentic magic Huzul texts, sayings against evil forces. And their power can hardly be ignored. On the other hand – Kuzya (Serhiy Kuzminsky) created the music component and provided the entire material with that very specific sound that brings the album to some other orbit...
Domestic price: 135.66UAH, International price: $14.28USD

Trychi. PoNeDilOK. /digi-pack/


It took about two years for this triple union to finally ripen – and, justifying all expectations, the drink has appeared really interesting and decent. You cannot gulp it in one go to forget the next instant – no, here you will want to savor, to come back repeatedly. And attractiveness of this music in that it lives on the border among absolutely different styles, takes something from each but belongs to none of them in full.
Domestic price: 132.24UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Ukrajins‘ka herojichna pisnja. (deluxe edition). /digi-pack/. (Ukrainian Heroic Song)


The collection release differs from the ordinary one in the following: 1. 24-page song booklet with texts of all the songs that sound in the collection; 2. the electronic version of the Ukrainian heroic chronicle "Our Victories" (in Ukrainian); 3. a digi-pack instead of a plastic box.
Domestic price: 135.66UAH, International price: $14.28USD

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: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

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: 151.24UAH, International price: $15.92USD

Kozak System, Taras Chubay. Homin' Songs. /vinyl 140g LP/.


German pressing (EDC), black 140gr vinyl LP. 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 Svydnytsky.

Shablya. Brattya Ukrajintsi. /digi-pack/. (Brother Ukrainians)


The album "Brother Ukrainians" is a fanciful mix of the patriotic fervor and, oddly enough, irony. On the one hand, there is solid rock with light electronic admixtures and folk echoes. No extra frills – but there is certain nicety in this rectitude. On the other hand –...
Domestic price: 113.24UAH, International price: $11.92USD

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: 107.16UAH, International price: $11.28USD

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: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

U.RA. Radiosny. (RadioDreams)


It is as if a linen string, on which times and feelings, dreams and ways are strung as if pearls. This necklace sparkles softly, and in it there are as many secrets as beauty...
Domestic price: 113.24UAH, International price: $11.92USD

The Yurcash. Oj.


If there is in the world such style as benevolent, smiling punk – it is exactly this case. At least, the ideological basis. Because a lot of elements are mixed in the music: clearly, punk, plus alternative, minimalism, ska, symphonic rock, blues, hardcore – and all this cuisine is lavishly seasoned with folk in virtually all possible displays.
Domestic price: 221.16UAH, International price: $23.28USD

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.
