Yanka Kozyr's Orchestra. Shljahy. /digi-pack/. (Roads)

They have been expecting for this album for a long time, already for a few years. And expecting devotedly Ц because "Yanka Kozyr Orchestra" somehow very quickly became one of central figures of Ukrainian alternative stage. Start listening to it Ц and, I think, you will at once understand why this group is so popular among our admirers of independent music. However, not only among ours Цmore than a year ago already "Yanka Kozyr Orchestra" appeared, for example, in the respected independent catalogue of the best European underground, "". If I am not mistaken Ц the first among Ukrainian groups. However, it is not a surprise. Today, this collective virtually best of all combines "heavy" music with folk motives Ц plus decorates it with the bright female vocal. Actually, it is not occasionally that Yanka's name is taken as the name of the group Ц her manner of performance attributes a very special face to "Orchestra..."'s creativity. Here, city nervousness, sharpness surprisingly intersect Ц with rootedness in some most ancient cultural layers. Yanka seems to not even sing, but practice witchcraft Ц and she does not copy known standards, but just takes her skills from some primary source. Not that she revives Ц rather, gives birth anew to some mystic passageways between the worlds. Isn't it for this reason that the album is named "Paths"? Ц I do not know. But I think that this disk is quite able to open to the listener something new not only in music Ц but also in the method of contemplation and cognition of the world. It seems to me that everyone should listen to this disk Ц both those who value independent music thinking, and those who are interested in folk experiments, and those who just have at least some sense of humor. And those who do not like either Ц as well. Horizons should broaden.

Fayno. Oznaky zhyttya. /digi-pack/. (Signs of Life)

This time "Fayno" once again offer their own lyrics and songs based on poems by such interesting and distinguished authors as Lazutkin, Lyubka, Honchar, Kiyanovska, Moskalets, etc. These interpretations are always interesting to listen to Ц at least, because the accents sometimes sound very different...

Qarpa. & I made a Man. /digi-pack/.

The first fourteen customers will receive this disc signed by Irena Karpa! the new album from Qarpa Band is the music of the world which does not exist. It does not exist outside big cities, the Web, the utter interpenetration of cultures, and dilution of borders. This is the voice woven out of thousand voice...

Start Up. Otrujeni mriji. (Poisoned Dreams)

Given the impression that it is able to produce Ц it is even a pity that out of the three albums by the group, only this Ц "Poisoned Dreams" Ц has been released on physical media. Powerful stuff Ц and not only due to the style. Although, sure, high-quality performance of heavy music Ц it is always interesting. But here it is also about the contrast...

Postsense. Pyty po krapli. (Drinking In Drops)

..there are increasingly more "problem-free" songs. Perhaps, it is just a way of self-defense Ц but "Postsense" protects itself otherwise. This group Ц attacks. Does not turn away, does not invent politically correct formula. They call unpleasant things their proper names Ц so, their album is not for those seeking for alienated comfort.

Delia. Spohad. (Flashback)

Alternative music? Ц yes, this is it. Sympho-rock Ц yes, moreover, already now the group feels very confident in this sense, works at a large scale. Gothic? Ц yes, this is exactly the word that is the first to occur, if one speaks about the atmosphere as a whole, and about some texts in particular. Melodious heavy metal? Ц this, obviously, was the basis from which what we hear now grows.

Qarpa. inZhYR. /digi-pack/

It is difficult to say where from in this fragile girl there is such an enormous amount of kinetic energy Ц we have nothing but to observe with sincere fascination how the dissected waves fall on the both sides of the selected course... And the course is such that in the last three albums Ц including this, new one Ц surprised ears of the audience hear more and more banter, quite hard and psychotropic electronic alternative.

Faktychno Sami. Kosmichnyj vakuum. (Space Vacuum)

lately it is well-aimed Ц a distracting blow on mind, a sort of that it is a logical riddle Ц but actually all this is directed at the emotional body, and in order to understand and get penetrated with it Ц it is not necessary to understand. the other way round, you should not understand Ц and then everything becomes clear. in a nutshell Ц zen. somewhat technogenic entourage...

Faktychno Sami. Lo-Fi TRavmy.

Sometimes Ц and you never know the next step this group will make - it is a real alternative. You see, an alternative simply means an open possibility of choice, an unlimited amount of possibilities.

I would call this music hard blues Ц but do not get surprised when you hear in it surprisingly transparent trip-hop mood. It would seem that these both styles could hardly be called optimistic. Conditional minus. But, as it happens from time to time, minus to minus has given us an unexpected, but so warm, intimate plu...
