DakhaBrakha. Light. /digi-pack/.
The third studio album by the group DakhaBrakha is again some different quality level both in content and in form. In the end, currently the group is one of the best representatives of the Ukrainian variant of world music recognized not only in Ukraine but also in lots of other countries of the world. And it seems that a good opportunity for a sort of leisure and experiments has arisen the new work significantly differs from all previous ones, even though the handwriting of DakhaBrakha is, certainly, easily recognizable in any case. You can see yourself that the title of the album can be interpreted both as "illuminated", and as "easy-going", and not only. In the same way, 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. Obviously, this is the merit of not only the musicians of the group, but also Yury Hustochka (Esthetic Education, Piss&Laugh, ex-Okean Elzy) because he became the sound producer of the album. It appears cool. Because the paints are laid with the fantasy and span of a master, not an apprentice. Because every new song turns into an ironical cultural collage, where, as in any ordinary magic mirror, it is possible to see not only oneself, but also truthful features of the outside world, its soul. And sometimes even feel vibrations of the spirit engrained so deeply (or so extensively as well?) that national and political frontiers absolutely lose their sense...

The concert performance it is different, and not only due to presence of a new song. The sound, nuances of arrangements, team of musicians but, above all the energy.

Boombox. Seredniy vik. /digi-pack/. (Middle Age)


The new album by Boombox is another very significant reason to mention the year 2011 as one of the most yielding years for the non-ordinary Ukrainian popular music. No doubt despite the title, "Middle Age", no crisis is in question here. On the contrary.

Pur:Pur. Pure. /digi-pack/.


It seems to me it is just not possible to listen to them and not to imagine some stories. Very different and identically bright.

This is as though you wake up on the first morning of the Indian summer and, willy-nilly, it catches your breath...

Svet, Tanya Sha. Ten Step Journey.


Fortunately, sometimes you run across the albums about which it is very difficult to say anything because you just frankly like them. Because, in spite of external simplicity, they contain so many ideas, various subtleties one's ears just go astray..) Because the music tells you stories without words, while the words tell you stories full to the brims with music..

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...

Svyatoslav Vakarchuk. Vnochi. /digi-pack/. (At Night)


In spite of that At Night compositions do not meet the pop-format, the album is aimed at mass audience.

LoTus, Rosava. LoTus feat. Rosava.


As a rule the idea of heroic nature has never even crossed the minds of the heroic figures. Moreover they can even get frightened if one alludes to this. But still they continue doing their work.

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.

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...

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.

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: 58.14UAH, International price: $12.92USD

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.

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.

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: 80.64UAH, International price: $17.92USD

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: 80.64UAH, International price: $17.92USD

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...

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...

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...

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...

DakhaBrakha, Port Mone. Khmeleva project. (exclusive edition). /eco-pack/.

ShockolaD. World. /digi-pack/.


It is the music that intertwines motifs from around the world. The music that absorbs all the motives, sounds that fly in the air. A tangle of energies of folk music from different continents, worlds, epochs: the Ukrainian folk, American jazz, blues, modern electronics all of these can be found in the new album...

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: 58.14UAH, International price: $12.92USD

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: 71.64UAH, International price: $15.92USD

AtmAsfera. Internal. /digi-pack/.


AtmAsfera illustrates very clearly again: an album is not just a collection of songs. It's like a novel in stories each having its own value, but only together they form something that may take one's breath away and the space around grows significantly different...
Domestic price: 62.64UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Soncekliosh. Heroji. (Heroes)


...with their own example the group perfectly demonstrates that serious sense of humor can lead far enough. It has already brought Sontseklyosh to a very tight concert schedule, wide recognition in not that really narrow circles, and now to the second album as well. The album, believe me, is cool...

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: 58.14UAH, International price: $12.92USD

AtmAsfera. Integro.


"Integro" sounds very prudent, balanced there is something special that makes it an album, and a strong one, not a collection of colorful pictures. As a flower that suddenly opens up in the middle of the night and darkness becomes transparent, the air cool and fragrant, and thoughts pure...

ShockolaD. Shchedryy vechir z dobrym jazzom. /digi-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.

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: 67.14UAH, International price: $14.92USD

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: 71.64UAH, International price: $15.92USD

Ojra. Krokovoje koleso. /digi-pack/


First I listened to the Ojras 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 didnt 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.

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..

Rosava. Kolysanky. (Lullabies)


Its really pleasent when someone promises and then does even more . Deeply, better, lovely... Its pleasing when somebody devouts his heart and soul to business in the way that you can see this pure soul, feel this heart so close to yourself...
Domestic price: 62.64UAH, International price: $13.92USD

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: 197.64UAH, International price: $43.92USD

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?
