Propala Hramota. Honor. (Pride)
The first album by Propala Hramota, "Tseyvo", no doubt became one of the most interesting Ukrainian releases of 2007. Well, and "Pride", it seems, has all chances to become one of the best albums of 2009 – even though it was released at the beginning of March, that is long before the end of the year. As a whole, when I first saw the cover I thought that the album was to be acid-funk-folk one. It is something like that: acid-funk reveals itself in the polygraph (which, by the way, contains as an addition a set of unordinary stickers by Oleksandr "Leonaut" Gutsal) and the atmosphere of the bonus tracks, and funk-folk – in the very musical palette of "Pride". I would not like to speak here in a lot of detail about features of separate songs, about the ability to combine the green with the hot, and the fretted with the tart – it will be sufficient to say that 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. Pavlo Nechytailo, as the author of the majority of the texts, is able to look deeper behind the suds of a shallow wave and to tell stories of today so that it seems that they exist beyond the restrictions of time. Worthy ability – for roots of all stories of the world live not in time really. Probably, for this reason both folk songs look so organic in the fabric of this musical narrative ("The Adopted", "Karmalyuk"), and the lyrics by Hrygory Skovoroda ("Lying in the Coffin"). That is, it is not only about a certain music language – but also about that common space that is opened through the words by Nechytailo. Wide space.

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?

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

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

Arsen Mirzoyan. Gudzyky. /digi-pack/. (Buttons)

After the ending of the TV show "Voice of the Country", everybody, sure, expected for Arsen Mirzoyan to release a disc. But it could hardly be expected to happen so soon – so, for many the debut album, we believe, is a surprise. Definitely – a nice one.

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.

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"..

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.

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.

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
