International price: $40.90USD $31.90USD

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: 180.60UAH, International price: $12.90USD

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: 236.60UAH, International price: $16.90USD

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: 214.20UAH, International price: $15.30USD

Viy. Hata skraju sela. /digi-pack/. (Hut At the Edge of the Village)


"Vij" is one of a few groups that really know how to keep silent. In a qualitative, saturated way. They say little, but to the point and then silence falls down for a long time. Sometimes, it even causes cold shiver, so many various meanings are hidden there. And sometimes everything becomes so simple, clear, clean...
Domestic price: 256.20UAH, International price: $18.30USD

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: 222.60UAH, International price: $15.90USD

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: 214.20UAH, International price: $15.30USD

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: 256.20UAH, International price: $18.30USD

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: 194.60UAH, International price: $13.90USD

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: 194.60UAH, International price: $13.90USD

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 wont 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: 194.60UAH, International price: $13.90USD

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: 208.60UAH, International price: $14.90USD

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: 256.20UAH, International price: $18.30USD

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: 152.60UAH, International price: $10.90USD

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: 194.60UAH, International price: $13.90USD

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: 278.60UAH, International price: $19.90USD

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: 194.60UAH, International price: $13.90USD

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: 222.60UAH, International price: $15.90USD

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: 194.60UAH, International price: $13.90USD

Gutsul Calipso. Reket-Hanhstera. (Racket-Gangsters)


Gutsul Kalipso play music that they personally name "Guzul-hop" and sometimes define it as a mixture of Bukovyna folklore, hip-hop and jazz. Judging by everything, the All-Mighty Jah has not gone round creative searches of these smiling fighters with his favorable attention either as a result, a very fanciful but also no less positive music freak has seen the light of the day.
Domestic price: 278.60UAH, International price: $19.90USD

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: 236.60UAH, International price: $16.90USD

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


..Its 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: 166.60UAH, International price: $11.90USD

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: 200.20UAH, International price: $14.30USD

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: 208.60UAH, International price: $14.90USD

Dakh Daughters. If. /digi-pack/.


..a studio album is a different story, it offers an opportunity to hear, not to see: music balancing on the brink of theater. Due to the art of intonation, which sometimes reaches its extreme and takes a step further but also due to the art of silence, which only rarely acts as a pause, taking a breath, but mostly it keeps producing supplementary senses.
Domestic price: 200.20UAH, International price: $14.30USD

Dakh Daughters. Air. /digi-pack/.


It is obvious that something extraordinary was expected from DD so that it were different from the first album but not inferior to it. The girls have met the both expectations, this is a cool art-house piece, quite far from the ordinary..
Domestic price: 200.20UAH, International price: $14.30USD

Dakh Daughters. Make Up. /digi-pack/.


..Dakh Daughters have taken a step forward, being able to synthesize their previous experience here the sharpness of the first album and the balance of the second one have come together, and as a result we have got a rich space of mystery and confession..
Domestic price: 208.60UAH, International price: $14.90USD

Second Breath. Save the Blues.


Second Breath is a Kyiv group that has been playing blues for 40 (!) years already. It is quite possible that this is the oldest active blues band not only in Kyiv, but also all through Ukraine. Or, maybe, through considerably wider territories who know...
Domestic price: 320.60UAH, International price: $22.90USD

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: 194.60UAH, International price: $13.90USD

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: 194.60UAH, International price: $13.90USD

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


"Kozak System" offers a bright mixture of modern and folk poetry, powerful rock, ska-punk with insertions of reggae, and everything is kept together by the serious frame of the Ukrainian folk root. In short - you should meet them again.
Domestic price: 194.60UAH, International price: $13.90USD

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: 194.60UAH, International price: $13.90USD

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: 130.20UAH, International price: $9.30USD

Krapka. Zhyvyj. (Alive)


The debut album by Krapka sounds very rich, vibrant, inventive convincing. The three keys are used: hip-hop in relation to the lyrics, rock, and ethics (and not only Ukrainian) in relation to the music. And even the term "world music" will not say it all although it is quite close to the point.
Domestic price: 166.60UAH, International price: $11.90USD

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: 264.60UAH, International price: $18.90USD

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: 180.60UAH, International price: $12.90USD

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: 194.60UAH, International price: $13.90USD

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: 320.60UAH, International price: $22.90USD

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: 194.60UAH, International price: $13.90USD

Mandry. Mandry u Krajini Mriy. (live). /digi-pack/. (Wayfaring in the Dreamland)


...good, high-quality recording. It will be able to bring pleasure not only to fans of Mandry, but also to all those who value concert albums as such because here they have really "caught the tail" of the live energy, everything is precise. This is about the welcome. Well, and farewell...
Domestic price: 382.20UAH, International price: $27.30USD

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: 222.60UAH, International price: $15.90USD

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: 194.60UAH, International price: $13.90USD

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: 250.60UAH, International price: $17.90USD

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: 194.60UAH, International price: $13.90USD

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: 278.60UAH, International price: $19.90USD

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: 256.20UAH, International price: $18.30USD

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: 320.60UAH, International price: $22.90USD

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: 194.60UAH, International price: $13.90USD

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"..
Domestic price: 264.60UAH, International price: $18.90USD

Ocheretyany Kit. Mandrivka v Kosakivku.


It smells the sun, it shines with salt, it smiles in sun burnt wrinkles. And everything here, on the disc, is so pertinent and harmonious that it is even hard to believe it, and it becomes very joyful. The song shines itself and it shines for people
Domestic price: 382.20UAH, International price: $27.30USD

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.
Domestic price: 180.60UAH, International price: $12.90USD

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.
Domestic price: 278.60UAH, International price: $19.90USD

Perkalaba. !chydro /digi-pack/


Perkalaba unexpectedly, without any announcement produced its third album. Well, and it was right to do that it has been long time already that we've been willing to hear something new from the spheres of absurd folk, and Perkalaba still stays virtually the main Ukrainian guide in the wilderness of these unexplored paths and ladders.
Domestic price: 236.60UAH, International price: $16.90USD

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: 382.20UAH, International price: $27.30USD

Postman. Being High. /mini-pack/.


..In musical terms, this is clearly stemming from what Bob Dylan, Simon & Garfunkel, Donovan, and others were doing some long time ago. Stemming from but not copying, it is just that in Postman's songs there are the same ease and the content that make it possible to anticipate the extra depth, without any prejudice to the beauty.
Domestic price: 186.20UAH, International price: $13.30USD

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: 180.60UAH, International price: $12.90USD

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: 172.20UAH, International price: $12.30USD

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.
Domestic price: 180.60UAH, International price: $12.90USD

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: 250.60UAH, International price: $17.90USD

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: 250.60UAH, International price: $17.90USD

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: 180.60UAH, International price: $12.90USD

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: 194.60UAH, International price: $13.90USD

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: 166.60UAH, International price: $11.90USD

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: 194.60UAH, International price: $13.90USD

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: 194.60UAH, International price: $13.90USD

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.
Domestic price: 194.60UAH, International price: $13.90USD

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: 194.60UAH, International price: $13.90USD

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: 264.60UAH, International price: $18.90USD

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...

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.

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.

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"...

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?

Ukrajinska 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.

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.

Foma. Concert in "Golden Gates". Live.


This time this is an alive recording during a concert, a kind of distinctive unplugged, as Foma accompanies his singing with a guitar only. Still because of that songs do not lose anything. Most likely it, as usual, gives the opportunity to listen more attentively to singing itself, exactly to inner melody of the songs, and they do not lack it at all.

Kozak System, Taras Chubay. 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...

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.

Shopping Hour. Sunce Viter. (+bonus). /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.

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.
