Propala Hramota. Chudernatska syla. /eco-pack/. (Freakish Power)
It was initially 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. What exactly? There is the warm salt of soil – the feeling is that these songs have grown up absorbing its fertile power, weird history and true memory. There is the mysterious fluidity of water – that allows it to ever change but always stay itself. There is also the light but resilient force of wind – this music is able to refresh, fill lungs with new air, though it can also shake, and hit the chest so that you catch your breath. And there's fire – the very fire in which everything superfluous simply disappears... Let me put it otherwise. Each person has an age of self-determination. For the group "Propala Hramota" it is the age of the third album. That is, the guys were aware of what they were doing before as well – but right now this knowledge and understanding have gained some really perfect, integral, bright, filled to the brim shape, manifestation. So it seems to me. "Freakish Power" is really a powerful, sharp and yet, strangely enough, light work. Honestly – I really like it.

Kyiv Ethno Trio. Kyiv Ethno Trio. /digi-pack/.


This is the case where everything is easy at the first sight, but the result is weightier than the simple sum of its components. It is made subtly, carefully, sometimes economically on purpose – and due to that another quality of power grows into the music. KET somehow manage to create (bring back?) the perception of a quiet miracle..

Dilya, Orest Krysa. 22. /digi-pack/.


..this is why the album has turned out very easily presented. With the unobtrusive simplicity that knows how to avoid primitivism. Due to this, the lyrics do not get lost in the arrangements – which also matters, because a lot of truly cool, and sometimes – already classical – poems were set to music here.

Panivalkova. Dontvori. /premium, eco-pack/. (Don't Worry)


..One can simply enjoy the concise arrangements with colorful spices. Or one can discover in these melodies, intonations, and pauses styling on the verge of grotesque. Or – one can hear stories that it is impossible to tell in any other way than this. Sentimental and ironic. And ask: why?

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..

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.

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...

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"..

Hurt Mandrivnykh Dyakiv "Vertep". VirshOspivy. /digi-pack/. (PoemSongs)


Simple and bright: the group set to music the poetry of a two dozens of the most interesting Ukrainian modern authors, a half of poems performed by the authors themselves. The project succeeded, truly, as Vertep didn’t set themselves any limits in style, here, apparently, a light tint of jazz..

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.

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.

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.

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...

Hurt Mandrivnykh Dyakiv "Vertep". Buchalchyn gandzh.


The group offers to us radiant, expressive pictures. They masterfully implement the style eclecticism in the music line – it became the background for poetry both varied and transparent. Moreover, the whole album is penetrated with kind humor.
