Light Rock

Druha Rika, Talita Kum and others

5 Vymir. Mistolinia. /super-pack/. (CityLine)


The first studio album by 5 Vymir is like a rough mixture of the psychedelia of the 70s and the Brit pop of the 90s, inspired by our local dreamlike lifestyle, but flavored with a green, bouncy charge of sound (and it's not about sounding) insolence. It turns out to be very atmospheric..
Domestic price: 144.75UAH, International price: $13.28USD

5 Vymir. Novi imena. /mini-pack/. (New Names)


..this is a marker album and thoughtful preparation for the next step – at least, it sounds like that. Indie rock in Ukrainian is still not the mainstream in Ukraine, but 5 Vymir is just one of those bands that are able to change this situation for the better – there is enough musical and literary sense, charismatic manifestations, and they are not lacking ambitions. Let them just not stop..
Domestic price: 133.85UAH, International price: $12.28USD

A la Ru. to be.


Actually, disco could sound like this if it were given to a DJ who has already been sweating for two or three hours at the rack but has not yet lost the ability and inclination to experiment. That is why quite organically Arabic and African percussions and Jamaican rhythms, as well as "black" reciting and the "submarine" atmosphere are intertwined into the general canvas – for this is lounge, and diversified one.
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

AntytilA. Buduvudu.


...the group "AntytilA" has already had time to obtain quite extensive popularity in Ukraine. Especially, sure, – among young people, and it is easy to understand. The thing here is not only the predominantly easy, lyric texts. And not only that zeal that practically any fresh music has, regardless of its quality. It seems that it is quality that the group regards attentively...
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

AntytilA. Nad polyusamy. /digi-pack/. (Over the Poles)


It was in 2012 when several songs from the album were written and presented. Other tracks were finished only a month ago. While the recording sessions were under way members of the band got through rather significant issues in their lives. Definitely, those issues couldn’t help but leave a mark on the new vision and feelings towards music...
Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

AntytilA. Vse krasyvo. /digi-pack/. (Everything Is Beautiful)


Less than 2 years have passed since the release of the previous album "Over the Poles". But – this was the period from 2013 till 2015. Lots of things have happened and changed, and even more is still ahead. AntytilA have not stayed aside – both in human terms, and in terms of creativity...
Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

AntytilA. Sontse. /digi-pack/. (Sun)


The new album by Antytila was released unexpectedly quickly – but the title "Sun" seems to imply that there was no need to wait, that the time came. Or – were the new songs so much burning inside that one had to release them as soon as possible? However, the cover of "People Like Ships" by Skryabin here may indicate at something quite different
Domestic price: 133.85UAH, International price: $12.28USD

Arlett. Arlett. /digi-pack/.


..Eventually, the debut album by Arlett generally somehow avoids excesses, sticks to certain mainstream – which, incidentally, has its zest. It is read as being without a mask, simple expression, a sort of a light conversation. Due to which, probably, there will be a chance and the will for a deeper conversation.
Domestic price: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Asymmetry of Emotions. Setalight.


In spite of the love and respect of the group participants for works by "Beatles" stated in the autobiography, this is not about copying, imitation – and it is good. Perhaps, the only common feature is that the "Asymmetry of Emotions" also plays pop-rock. Maybe, with the prefix "indie". And, of course, very emotional.
Domestic price: 112.05UAH, International price: $10.28USD

Bez Obmezhen. The Best Of. /premium, eco-pack/.


..and while they are working on their fourth album – here is an official release of their best in the past years. This release results not only from their desire to summarize, but also from an actual need: currently the band is busy with their truly non-stop concert tours around Ukraine. Why? Because there's not only OE, and that's ok. Because soft power is also power...
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

BioNik. BioNik.


It is exactly such music that practically the whole Europe listens to now – the young part of population, accordingly. It is exactly such music that Ukraine lacks at present. At least, such bright cocktails of punk, pop, grunge, Brit-pop – practically nobody does that. And it is worth trying...
Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

The Britalin. Season 1. /digi-pack/.


The Britalin really pleases both with the level of performance, and arrangements. The lyrics are not deprived of some sense either, and sometimes they are quite provocative – it is nice. And, moreover, there are two leading vocals at once – male and female – and that diversifies the sound and adds a certain semantic intrigue.
Domestic price: 122.95UAH, International price: $11.28USD

Brunettes Shoot Blondes. Bittersweet. (EP). /digi-pack/.


Brunettes Shoot Blondes is the band whose video for the song "Knock Knock" recently inspired a serious wave of interest, at least in the Ukrainian segment of the Internet. However, given the almost 9 million (!) views – it must be not only the Ukrainian one..
Domestic price: 108.13UAH, International price: $9.92USD

Boombox. Melomania.


Here one can find a sonorous voice, a rhythmic lyricism and pride, which make all possible musical styles and devices to be mixed in one kettle, as well as the sense of humour, which, I hope, will not give the ground for putting this kettle at the pedestal.
Domestic price: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Boombox. Family business.


Here, there is simplicity that has nothing in common with primitivism. Here, there is young but not blind energy – and it makes significant, purposeful steps. And you, the listener, walk hand in hand with it. Because there is accuracy of music solutions – and it means that you at once notice what you are listening to.
Domestic price: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Boombox. Trymay. (EP). (Hold)


Boombox is one of those groups, which have their own appearance from the very beginning. Therefore, they spend their time not to create some unique style, but to find new colours. And every time these colours get more and more intense – the proof is in front of your eyes.
Domestic price: 119.03UAH, International price: $10.92USD

Boombox. III.


The third full-format album by Boombox group has all chances to appear the group's best one for today at the same time – at least, such feeling appears already from the first seconds. And that is logical – always sticking to, on the whole, the same stylistics, with every new step the group perfects quality of the material. Or let us say otherwise: Boombox tries to grow not wide but high above itself...
Domestic price: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Vasyl Hontarsky, Vasya Club. Hipan. /vinyl 180g HQ Audiophile LP/. (Hipster)


An anniversary  (10 years since the release) re-issue on vinyl 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. German pressing, 180-gram vinyl.
Domestic price: 755.15UAH, International price: $69.28USD

Boombox. Terminal B. /digi-pack/.


Something is changing inside. The feeling is as if Andriy Khlyvnyuk submerges much deeper now, and peers much closer, and than suddenly opens up and appears probably even defenceless, vulnerable – and because of that, however strange that may be, stronger. Even if it is painful. And this movement is there.
Domestic price: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Boombox. Lyudy. (EP). /eco-pack/. (People)


"People" is a work small in size, but rich in content. From heavy teen romance – to some serious generalizations only possible when having gained experience. From quite intimate reflections – to civil pathos. And in terms of the sheer sound, it turns out – diverse.
Domestic price: 122.95UAH, International price: $11.28USD

Alena Vinnitskaya. Konvert. (Envelope)


It is difficult to explain this, because nothing has changed radically from outside. But somehow there is a persistent feeling that within this music there now sounds such confidence of one's own forces, ability to speak out simply, without superficial things – that it really looks like a new quality level.
Domestic price: 122.95UAH, International price: $11.28USD

The VYO. Mapa. /digi-pack/. (The Map)


..the life goes on – versatile, diverse. And the album "The Map" really resembles a map of life. Both in terms of the geography – half of the songs here have clear enough "links to the locality". And in emotional terms – because one can find here meditation, and irony, and gratitude, and joy, and sorrow...
Domestic price: 206.23UAH, International price: $18.92USD

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: 206.23UAH, International price: $18.92USD

Svyatoslav Vakarchuk. Brussels. /digi-pack/.


The main thing is that this music is not committed to a certain style, but rather to a certain brand, a quality of expression. So, if for the sake of this quality one needs to add some atypical colors – it happens in an easy and natural way. Such a cool simplicity. At the same time – it is a team play, in which no one pulls the blanket over himself.
Domestic price: 122.95UAH, International price: $11.28USD

Vombad. Pereplyvu okean... (I Will Swim Across the Ocean...)


...A sort of an album of ballads. If you do not listen attentively – it seems very balanced. But when you are attentive – that is when the second bottom opens: it is an album of deep feelings, bright experiences and, at the same time, quiet reflections. Not speculations on a topic, but exactly – individual reflections.
Domestic price: 122.95UAH, International price: $11.28USD

Gorgisheli. Amore.


"Gorgisheli" plays light rock today, that is high-quality pop music with rock coloring. And its quality is exactly the one that quite a lot of our modern pop-performers lack. Well, that’s not bad – "Gorgisheli" have great chances to quickly become one of the most interesting current projects in the style "pop-rock".
Domestic price: 112.05UAH, International price: $10.28USD

Gorgisheli. Live.


...the second album is a recording of the performance within the framework of the TV project "Tviy Format". As recording of the program took place in May 2008, the core of the program was made of pieces from the debut work "Amore". But, sure, they did not do without novelties either – and this is a whole third of the current disc.
Domestic price: 112.05UAH, International price: $10.28USD

Lesja Horova. I Am a Patriot.


With such powerful charge of optimism, which has been put into this album, one may not simply live and be glad, but also move mountains, make revolution or build a new house.
Domestic price: 122.95UAH, International price: $11.28USD

Green Grey. Metamorphosis.


It looks as if the guys have found some alternative accumulator in themselves or outside - and connected to it with persistence, which is usually typical for young guys of 17.
Domestic price: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Green Grey. Glaz leoparda. /digi-pack/. (The Leopard's Eye)


Green Grey decided not to abandon the combination of electronic music with rock aesthetics – though, now there is somehow more of the latter, so one can hardly attribute this music to the light one. The elements of dubstep and hardcore are far not the only ones in this puzzle...
Domestic price: 155.65UAH, International price: $14.28USD

Green Grey. WTF?! Dubrock. /digi-pack/.


When a couple of years ago Green Grey released their new album after a long silence – it was like a small miracle, the hidden core of which was the question: what's next? The answer is – here. The bile of experience, but, surprisingly, without the bitterness habitual in such cases. The answer is – movement.
Domestic price: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

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: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Gouache. Simple me. (CD+DVD).


"Gouache" has already become one of the most noticeable and interesting recent novices. The guys immediately set the goal of, so to speak, "western" quality – and they are successfully implementing their objective. Everything went right: having heard songs by "Gouache", our audience frequently fails to believe that it is a purely Ukrainian product sounding.
Domestic price: 217.13UAH, International price: $19.92USD

Hud:mov. Trampliny.


As for me, this work of art is marked by lightness, at that this lightness is more pleasant than vain. You see, there are thoughts present here, and they are different, but they are not put on a pedestal, on the contrary, they fly simply and easily somewhere near your head.
Domestic price: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Hud:mov. Monopol:ja. (Monopoly)


Simple, transparent melodies, minimum of tools – maybe, that is why each instrument speaks very expressively. Only three musicians, but each of them is at his place – to such extent that there are no failures, inappropriate pauses or sharp edges in their music.
Domestic price: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Dazzle Dreams. Dazzle Dreams.


The project, actually, appeared as far back as a few years ago – but it is lately that the concept has completed its final transformations, reincarnations, and now it is already somewhat new music. Not only in relation to itself, but also in relation to modern Ukrainian music in general – it seems that Dazzle Dreams are currently the only ones in Ukraine who play synthi-pop but with expressive, bright elements of ethno-lounge.
Domestic price: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Dazzle Dreams. (Go! Go! Go!) Disco killers.


...the second album by Dazzle Dreams is a bright experiment in the domain of dance music. Because, honestly speaking, this dance music can be considered rather highbrow one – at all events, the desire to move often yields to the desire to just listen attentively. However, it surprisingly does not reduce the general drive charge of the album – simply shifts it to some other, not so habitual plane.
Domestic price: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Dazzle Dreams. Diva. /digi-pack/.


..this is a step towards club music that is absolutely able to live outside of clubs – an attempt to hint at something more meaningful than just mysterious entourage. An attempt is successful – there is the style, there is the taste. Finally, the new album to some extent may be considered as a return to aesthetics of the first album...
Domestic price: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

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.
Domestic price: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Druha Rika. Dva. (Two)

Domestic price: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Druha Rika. Moda. (Fashion)


Valery Harchyshyn had an opportunity to acquire a refreshed look at life and its values, at creativity and its content – and he did make the best of this opportunity. It seems that here, this has finally happened – that maturing that was ripening in the previous albums by the group. If before one of the main colors was youth romanticism, now its place is gradually being occupied by simple, without fervor, glance in eyes.
Domestic price: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Druha Rika. Moda. /vinyl 140g LP/. (Fashion)


Please, find out the current price by writing to info@umka.com.ua. Do not miss the opportunity to become the owner of the iconic album as a collection edition on vinyl! (Czech pressing, black vinyl, 140g/cm3)

Druha Rika. Piramida. /super-pack/. (The Pyramid)


...According to Kharchyshyn, the title "The Pyramid" is a symbol of a summit – but the earthly pyramids are not that high. Instead, they are often symbols of inner peaks. And of the one that is always ahead.
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

The Elephants. Colors. /premium, eco-pack/.


Brevity, clarity of lines, softness of accents – sometimes even on the edge of being toylike. Transparent, like light shade. Add a bit of a bare nerve – and this would be "disruption" music, but for the time being The Elephants offer indie-pop-tronic with elements of fabulousness. And they do it so that one wants to believe it.
Domestic price: 133.85UAH, International price: $12.28USD

Epolets. Dity morya. /premium, eco-pack/. (Children of the Sea)


..it seems that they are about that all of us once came out of water of the World Ocean. Our paths converge, diverge, interrupt, go on, intertwine – and sometimes it is love, while sometimes – confrontation. But always(!) there is something in common for all of us..
Domestic price: 133.85UAH, International price: $12.28USD

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: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

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: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Contrabanda.com.ua. Contrabanda.com.ua.


I would call this music hard blues – 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...
Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Contrabanda.com.ua. Parol‘: kokhaju. (Password: I Love)


The new album is released in mid-winter, but its name hints at quite a spring mood – and the hint, it seems, is substantiated. If the debut work tended to "heavy blues", "Password: I Love" appears lighter, more romantic, transparent. However, it is still not the manner that has changed – one recognizes the group's sounding at once – it is the mood that has changed.
Domestic price: 112.05UAH, International price: $10.28USD

Contrabanda.com.ua. Dreamer. /digi-pack/.


..when everything is good, nothing is left to do but just listen. With outstanding – which also matters – pleasure. This is the case when pop music is made so differently compared to most of the customary Ukrainian pop music that.. one can only express sincere gratitude.
Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

KRUT. Arche. /digi-pack/.


..a full-fledged author album wrapped around the bandura so that the music intertwines several styles, from jazz and soul to blues and pop funk. Thus, "Arche" appeals not only (and not so much) to the Ukrainian tradition: it is an attempt to break stereotypes and at a dialog of cultures. A worthy attempt and vivid dialog.
Domestic price: 184.43UAH, International price: $16.92USD

Lama. Svitlo i tin‘. (Light and Shade)


It is pleasant that one step ahead was made with arrangements – "Light and Shade" sounds more voluminous, expressive, diverse. It is pleasant that Philharmonic Orchestra can be heard in the majority of the songs – and it is pleasant that this is not the only sparkle in the album. Music of the project is more and more tending to rock sounding – but remains light. And no doubt – its sounding brings pleasure.
Domestic price: 315.23UAH, International price: $28.92USD

Lama. Nazavzhdy... (CD+DVD). /digi-pack/. (For Ever...)


..In the album, one can definitely sense Lama's branded style. Another characteristic is its folk melodies, the Ukrainian musical roots. It is built on harmonies of our people.
Domestic price: 253.75UAH, International price: $23.28USD

Latexfauna. Ajahuaska. /digi-pack/.


The impressive dream-pop, full of strange reveries and clear dreams; the pretty languidness on the verge of indifference in their performance manner; somewhat bizarre but sincere texts, where entirely native landscapes and conflicts loom behind unexpected, sometimes exotic picture...
Domestic price: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Ulia Lord. 8 sekund. /digi-pack/. (8 Seconds)


..We had to wait for more than 10 years – and, probably, no one knew what to really expect for. One thing was clear: it cannot be just a continuation, there must be something different. And this different stuff turned out evident in the music – it can be tentatively described as multi-layer electronic guitar pop with spices.
Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Los Colorados. Shmiraky. (Scamps)


Los Kolorados is a striking example of how a joke may turn into something more. In any case, hardly anyone expected that their deliberately amateur video will result in millions of hits on the web. And, as a consequence, in invitations to perform in Germany, where within the context of this unexpected wave their debut album was released...

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. Just because it is their... It’s no use in objecting to the fact that real musicians, the same as the real music, begin with an ability to listen carefully. To listen and to hear.
Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Luiku. Yeher Mayster. /digi-pack/. (Yeger Meister)


Luiku is rather ironic dance music with a very pronounced folk component, the accelerated Ukrainian gypsy romance supplemented with Turkish, Polish, Romanian, and Hungarian lines. The music, besides being catchy (although there are also a couple of relaxed pieces), is also very, so to speak, convex.
Domestic price: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Luk. Lemon.


“Luk” inserts itself into te space organically. This album music has got a heart. I don’t know how but I know it...
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Luk. Tourist Zone.


Eccentricities, sure, differ. This one is entirely positive. Though, sometimes there is a temporary confidence that "Luk" creates music that stays somewhat aloof from our reality. But it does not prevent it from smiling – and our reality starts smiling back...
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Luk. Sex.


In this music, there is something of photosynthesis – it also converts sun energy into force and joy of growth and oxygen for friends and other neighbors. With it, everything happens simply and easily – the morning, walk, work and avoiding work, kiss and the first pot of tea, night on the balcony and snow...
Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Luk. Mamyna junost‘. /digi-pack/. (Mother's Youth)


...this must be the most accomplished album by the group. Not a single superfluous sound, clear and precise lines at presence of abundant disseminations of various styles – and at that they have succeeded in preserving the recognizable manner – the real sun splashes cocktail, light and tart. And after that, there should be something absolutely different...

Mandarinovy Raj. Podyvys‘ u vikno. (Look Through the Window)


And it is difficult to clearly define what the thing is, why exactly these songs warm you – but there lurks behind the external simplicity a sort of correct filling – unobtrusively, as a rain at night in summer...
Domestic price: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Mandry. Svit. /digi-pack/. (The World)


Maybe, it is just about some personal maturing of the musicians – and it, in its turn, is only reflected in the new songs? Maybe, so. Anyway, despite all external appearances, there is the desire to refer to the new album by Mandry as a blues one...
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Mandry, Foma. Chas letyt. /digi-pack/. (Time Flies)


Some of these songs could be heard at Foma's performances back in 2014. Time flies, sure – now there are more of them. Because the theme remains unchanged – the war, which came about then, lasts as of the eve of 2018, when the album is finally released. The country is painfully transforming itself. The price is loss of illusions, inoculated so long ago and so deeply...

Mad Heads. 8. /eco-pack/.


It seems that the musicians just played the songs as they wished, and, due to all their previous experience, it turned out multicolored. That is, there are elements of both rockabilly, ska, and ethno, and honest rock without frills – but there is no issue of purity of style, everything just works for the sake of the resulting drive. Works well..

the Maneken. Soulmate Sublime. /digi-pack/.


The Maneken is a unique artist who works in one of the most trendy areas of the contemporary music – the electronic rock. Using music styles as "clothes" for decoration of his music ideas, he has created several unique "collections", which have its fans not only in CIS countries, but also in Europe and the USA.
Domestic price: 133.85UAH, International price: $12.28USD

the Maneken. Live at Arena Concert Plaza. (CD+DVD). /digi-pack/.


Actually, in Europe, America, even Japan the Maneken is, probably, known even better than at home. But, fortunately, the situation is gradually leveling. Quality is valued everywhere, it is almost impossible to imitate it – at least, when it comes to music and the attentive listener. And this musician offers a high-quality benchmark...

Arsen Mirzoyan. Paperovy snih. /digi-pack/. (Paper Snow)


On the one hand, there is a bunch of components in the musical canvas, and participation of jazz musicians, a children's choir, or a full-fledged brass section emphasize that – the arrangements turn out diverse. On the other – there is still the feeling as if you listen to an album sung just with the guitar. However, it is rather an advantage...

Mureny. Skhozha na osin‘. (Looking Like Autumn)


The main thing is to create high-quality music and to maximally enjoy the very process. They do succeed in that. Both in texts, and in music by the group, it is possible to hear sincerity without glossy sugar – nevertheless, externally everything sounds easily and naturally. Mureny are somehow able to keep the look of outsiders, but at the same time create interesting, not really unambiguous pop-rock.

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: 195.33UAH, International price: $17.92USD

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..

Nedaremno. Stezhky do tebe. /digi-pack/. (Trails to You)


"NedaremnO" tries to sound different. Not too "trimmed" – and it has its advantages, because lack of syrup makes the taste much more honest. There is some special drive – that young groups had in abundance 10 to 20 years ago, but which many of the current "novices" often lack.
Domestic price: 112.05UAH, International price: $10.28USD

NeDilya. Trohy teplyh sliv. (Some warm words)


A music of NeDilya group has very kind, light and positive mood. It is not of any particular style but it has well-defined direction – from heart to heart.
Domestic price: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

NeDilya. Fortissimo.


..the impression is that Dilya has finally discovered and realized what he aspires to in actual fact. The impression is that "Fortissimo" is currently not only the best of his albums, but also one of the best pop-rock albums of the recent time in general. It resembles a picture drawn with wide strokes, skillfully and freely, with passion – but also a lot of attention to nuances.

Nota. Razom z toboju. (Together with You)


Year 2007 – Nota, a.k.a. Natalia Stadnyk, graduated from school. And – released together with her group the first album "Together with You". A beautiful album, I should say – of such album even experienced ones would not be ashamed. However, probably, "adult" groups just cannot afford anything of the kind?
Domestic price: 122.95UAH, International price: $11.28USD

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..
Domestic price: 260.73UAH, International price: $23.92USD

Okean Elzy. Dolce Vita. Remastered. /re-edition, digi-pack/.


Mastering of this release was performed in the USA, in the studio of the legendary sound producer Bob Ludwig, whose experience during the almost half-a-century career includes work with over 1200 musicians. This mastering was born at the height of "Dolce Vita Tour" in 2010 and as brightly as possible it conveys the integral, bright sound of the live concert performance.
Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Okean Elzy. Zemlya. /digi-pack/. (Land)


"Land" is a very grand word. But if we put it simple, then this is space for grain – where grain dies in order to generate new life. The basis. What everything stands on, where it returns – in order to leave again...
Domestic price: 133.85UAH, International price: $12.28USD

Okean Elzy. Bez mezh. /digi-pack/. (Without Limits)


When listening to the new album, you suddenly realize that there are no revelations, instead – there are the songs that you want to hear again. Just because there is nothing excessive in them – and there are some words, phrases (including musical ones) that hit exactly where they should.
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

O.Torvald. Acoustic. /digi-pack/.


...the sound appears really clear, light, and sometimes almost fragile. Actually, it is possible to compare – because, in addition to new songs, you'll find here several songs from the previous album "In You". This is not yet homely comfort – but this is not desperate thunder of large scenes either, definitely.
Domestic price: 122.95UAH, International price: $11.28USD

O.Torvald. #nashilyudyvsyudy. (+bonus EV-song). /premium, eco-pack/. (Our People Everywhere)


The album by O.Torvald seems to be evidence of another phase of maturation. Especially in terms of the sound, where the word "density" seems to be most applicable. Note: this release contains the song "Time", with which the band took part in Eurovision-2017.
Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

O.Torvald. Bisaydy. /digi-pack/. (B-sides)


..this collection of seemingly separate songs actually sounds almost like an album: colorful and, oddly enough, holistic. What makes it so – the sense of freshness, the feeling that they enjoyed creating these songs. And this, in the end, is virtually the most important thing.
Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Victor Pavlik. Anna-Maria / Ty podobajeshsya meni. 2CD. /digi-pack/. (I Like You)


..Thus, you will discover here the best songs by Viktor Pavlik of the "Anna-Maria" period, and two dozen versions of "I Like You." One can hear even now that it is pop music of a special sort, having its own distinct personality...
Domestic price: 217.13UAH, International price: $19.92USD

Victor Pavlik. No Promises No Forgiveness. /digi-pack/.


Pavlik has come back with the album in English. There is the feeling that the album was created mainly for the guys' own fun – and this must be right. By the way, perhaps, this is because there are not only translations of the best songs by Pavlik of various years, but also some nice covers of world hits.
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Victor Pavlik. (and friends). Rock.


..a whole bunch of musicians joined that, including Rock-H, Motor'rolla, Pan Pupets, Sashko Polozhynsky – and in this way a complete cover album of songs from the repertoire of 1992-2015 was formed. It turned out interesting – because the versions often sound quite unexpectedly, and because Pavlik personally contributed into the recording, so all together it is also an album of duets.
Domestic price: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

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?
Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Patrycia. Lechu. /digi-pack/. (I'm Flying)


The first thing that catches the eye is the musicians' regard to the pop rock aesthetics of the 1980's and the 2000's. It's not about copying as such – but this almost-retro flavor works as a properly selected spice: it helps to open up the base. Well, and the base is the ability to create good melodies and expressive arrangements..
Domestic price: 122.95UAH, International price: $11.28USD

Pianoboy. Prostye veschi. /digi-pack/. (Simple Things)


To say that Pianoboy has pleased us with his debut work – it means to say not enough. I do not know who has been expecting for what – though after Okean Elzy, Esthetic Education and Zemfira one could hardly seriously anticipate a failure? – but I suspect that the album will surpass most expectations
Domestic price: 260.73UAH, International price: $23.92USD

Pianoboy. Ne prekraschay mechtat. /vinyl 140g LP/. (Don't Stop Dreaming)


Please, find out the current price by writing to info@umka.com.ua. The main theme of the disc is expressed in the title – a thin thread of hope and faith in dreams permeates and unites all the songs in the album... (Czech pressing, black vinyl LP, 140g)
Domestic price: 0.00UAH, International price: $0.00USD

Pianoboy. Take Off. /premium edition, digi-pack/.


..intertwining love for the music of the 1960-70s, and the ability to speak modern, at the intersection of styles. With the taste for styling tricks – to speak one's own language. Actually, Pianoboy manages to combine in one bottle magnitude – and seclusion, intimacy.
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Platina. Zajvi slova. (Superfluous words)


Music of the group is not heavy, but tends to rock sounding. From additional spices, most perceptible is the influence of hard-rock of the 1970-80s – but the group successfully mixes it with modern colors. It is possible to separately emphasize the vocalist – it is interesting to follow her intonations, she is able to positively surprise.
Domestic price: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Platina. Pro tebe... (About You...)


From the moment of the release of the debut album, almost four years have passed now – we can state that during this time music by the group has noticeably changed. Not radically – this is again a sort of "pop rock with heavy elements" – but the quality has become different. The music has become more melodious, arrangement and performance – more transparent..
Domestic price: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Pur:Pur. Papercuts. (EP). /digi-pack/.


The same case when you listen – and you just delicious, let it be said that this nearly weightless blend call. And that is why, perhaps, it seems that musicians Pur:Pur can easily fit in any cultural landscape – or, conversely, to write it in your sunny space.
Domestic price: 122.95UAH, International price: $11.28USD

5'nizza. KU. /super-pack/.


..there is much less boyish hooliganism, the characters have matured, sure, thus having lost something cloudless. And having gained something significant in return, it seems. At least, they have something to say and sometimes may even do that with a smile – which now contains much more shades. What you will hear – depends on yourself. 5'nizza opens various doors..
Domestic price: 162.63UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Yevhen Rohachevsky. Razom nazavzhdy. /vinyl 180g HQ Audiophile LP/. (Together Forever)


In terms of the sound, one would call this album, quite unexpectedly... a collection of romantic songs. The manner of performance, the melody pattern are somewhat reminiscent of Ukrainian – and not only – "vocal and instrumental ensembles" of the 1970s-80... German pressing (Schallplattenfabrik Pallas), heavy black 180g vinyl
Domestic price: 664.03UAH, International price: $60.92USD

Role Model. Scylla and Charybdis. /digi-pack/.


Although musicians of the group define their style as pop rock – we should note that "rock" here weighs obviously more than "pop". To the extent that in the sounding of "Role Model" it is possible to discover, for example, elements of punk rock in the American style...
Domestic price: 122.95UAH, International price: $11.28USD

Rosava. teper i potim. (now and then)


You now see already the fourth album released with the name of Rosava on the cover – and it is again absolutely different from all previous ones. However, there is still something in common: this is again – cool. Beautiful.. If all Ukrainian pop-music stuck to such level – the word "muzak" would, probably, quickly disappear from our language..
Domestic price: 253.75UAH, International price: $23.28USD

SKAY. Te, scho treba.


...speaking about the music, it is still just melodious popular rock with simple, but not primitive arrangements. Actually, this it is simplicity that makes them to nicely attractive. The same is true about the text...
Domestic price: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

SKAY. S.K.A.I. Planet.


One of the most loved young groups in Ukraine, S.K.A.I., decided not to delay release of its second album too much – and was right. Because the new work not only does not yield to the debut one, but even excels it. Is this, as it seems, light rock again? – yes. But not quite so, because in this music rock weighs a bit more than lightness now.
Domestic price: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

SKAY. Kray Neba. (The Edge of Heaven)


S.K.A.Y. can "bang" not only a melodic, beautiful ballad – but undoubtedly drive pieces as well, and "The Edge of Heaven" is just a good evidence to that. The album is quite concise – but thus it is as expressive as possible. Both in the melodies, and in individual music phrases – it is, so to say, precise. While the lyrics are, on the contrary, mostly romantic...
Domestic price: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

SKAY. Nove zhyttya. /digi-pack/. (The New Life)


From the beginning, in their creative work SKAI were clearly guided by exemplary Brit-pop – and they managed that more successfully than so many colleagues on stage – but in that sense something was always missing. But now, it seems, the band has recorded the strongest album in their career, where there is finally enough of the "something".
Domestic price: 133.85UAH, International price: $12.28USD

SKAY. Ridkisni ptakhy. /digi-pack/. (Rare Birds)


The title "Rare Birds" is a reference to Lina Kostenko's poem "Wings", which is also printed on the disk’s cover. Therefore, in fact, all songs of the album are perceived as illustrations to this poem, a detailed commentary..
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Skryabin. Glamour.


"Srjabin" till now keeps the right to quietly express their own, probably not always pleasant, truth. These songs may be contradictory, ambiguous – but by no means can you call them empty. Cheerful and sad, loving and angry, wise and easy – they are sincere.
Domestic price: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Smack Band, Skryabin. Skryabinos Muchachos.


At some party where Kuzma was the anchor, the guys from the band helped him to fill in a pause by improvising a samba based on the theme of "Sleep Alone" – and it appeared good. So good that it resulted in real cooperation – and here you see a full-value album of cover versions for Skryabin's song created by musicians of Smack Band.
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Skryabin. Ptakhy. (re-edition). /digi-pack/. (Birds)


...the first officially released album by Skryabin. The album, due to which Skryabin for the first time loudly announced themselves all over Ukraine...
Domestic price: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Skryabin. Kazky. (re-edition). /digi-pack/. (Fairy-Tales)


...just look at the list of songs – the album appeared truly a hit one, the majority of these songs are still alive. Actually, lots of people considered exactly this album a quintessence of the "classic" Skryabin – both due to the music nature, and the semantic content of the lyrics.
Domestic price: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Skryabin. Mova ryb. (re-edition). /digi-pack/. (Fish Language)


...here, it seems, the objective was not so much presentation of the new material as rather a sort of restoration of justice. At all events, pay attention: this "Fish Language" (1997) mainly consists of the songs that in due time were included into first albums by Skryabin. The ones that have never been officially released.
Domestic price: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Skryabin. Technofight 1999. (re-edition). /digi-pack/.


...the original album "Technofight" – which was recorded as long ago as in 1993 and the duration of which made up over 90(!) minutes – was never released, and the master disc even got lost. Therefore, when in 1999 the re-edition question arose, the old songs were recorded anew...
Domestic price: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Skryabin. Dobryak. (Good Soul Man)


"Dobryak" is also an album for those who have a positive attitude to "Skryabin" as it is now. A little bit melancholic, a little angry, a little sentimental: the songs have different faces, but overall – it is a recognizable way of reflection, a new round of the familiar topic..
Domestic price: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Skryabin. 25. /digi-pack/.


The album with this name is perceived as a certain summary – but actually it is not. It is, rather, a sort of a response to the present domestic and international challenges – and hope for continuation. Actually, now – the direct quote:...
Domestic price: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Khrystyna Soloviy. Zhyva voda. Premium edition. /digi-pack/. (Living Water)


Recording of the debut album was supported, among others, by Olexiy Morozov, Denys Dudko, Alik Fantaev, Milos Jelic... In short, it has happily happened. It sounds interesting – and it is not only due to the relaxed, delicious arrangement clarity or the sincerity of intonations. There is also a sort of a special tint in the timbre..
Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

SoloDoschiv. Ya vdoma. /digi-pack/. (I'm Home)


SoloDoschiv is an acoustic minimal band (two guitars and a harmonica) from Lviv. the key emphasis is on the lyrics. And it should be mentioned that you do not that often come across such romantic lyricism with modern band...
Domestic price: 112.05UAH, International price: $10.28USD

Talita Kum. Inozemtsi.


This is very nice debut. Not often girls became real leaders of Ukrainian rock-groups.
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Talita Kum. Harjacha i hirka. /re-edition, digi-pack/.


There is a new and bright reincarnation in it, a new look at things, a new gentle nuance. It looks like a flower, each petal of which has a different colour or shade, which emphasises the depth of other colours.
Domestic price: 253.75UAH, International price: $23.28USD

Talita Kum. Shou biznes! (Show Business!)


Talita Kum do not yield their habit – and this is good – to produce varicolored albums. "Show Business!" is again a kaleidoscope of moods, intonations, styles. From disco to rock-mainstream, from tender love lyrics to Freudian banter, from an unhurried ballad to spring drive – without ceremony.
Domestic price: 122.95UAH, International price: $11.28USD

Tanok Na Maydani Kongo. Zabuv. Maxi-Single.


The first single of the future "Syla" ("The Force") album.
Domestic price: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

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?
Domestic price: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

TIK. Vesilny. /vinyl 140g LP/. (Wedding)


Please, find out the current price by writing to info@umka.com.ua. ...as we see, 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... (Czech pressing, black vinyl, 140g/cm3, 33rpm)

Tik Tu. Shuma. /digi-pack/.


It is hard to believe that all this amazing lace was created by just three individuals – the matter, given the saturation, is the precision of every line, every stroke. And in addition to this rather dense, rich basis, there's a whole bunch of decoration sounds. If you have been looking for inadvertently solar indie – this is a rare case of it, definitely.
Domestic price: 133.85UAH, International price: $12.28USD

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.
Domestic price: 206.23UAH, International price: $18.92USD

Fiolet. Vigvam. /digi-pack/. (Wigwam)


The first thing I noticed when I started playing the album was that I was intently listening to the lyrics. It's nice because it does not happen that often. This is important – because not only the sound matters, because semantic vibrations also weigh, and emptiness is very different from pauses. Moreover, one immediately notices the quality..
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Fiolet. Pisni lyubovi na poli boyu. /digi-pack/. (Songs of Love on the Battlefield)


"Fiolet" traditionally offers listening to not only pleasant music, but also – smart, witty lyrics. About what is and what will be. About that everything passes. About that everything changes – and remains invariably-incomprehensibly-incredible. Even when it hurts. However...
Domestic price: 217.13UAH, International price: $19.92USD

Flyzzza. Zasmaha na sertse. (Tan on the Heart)


The new work sounds more weighted, carefully thought through, expressed. It sounds as though the smile is still for all the 32 teeth, but some knowledge that adds a faint note of sadness to laughter has started shining in the eye... Well, we'll see. Not everyone manages, having accumulated knowledge and wisdom, to look at the world with optimism – but Flyzzza still does have such chances.
Domestic price: 122.95UAH, International price: $11.28USD

Flit. Odnoznachno! (Definitely!)


One should only give an attentive ear to the texts, and under the clothes of hooliganism, you will find not verbal tricks, but live reflections. Far not always these reflections are sunny and romantic, because our life as well happens to contain too much salt – but. Important is not only what you see, but also how you look. Flit, for example, does not brick itself up in deadlocks..
Domestic price: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

The Hardkiss. Zalizna lastivka. /digi-pack/. (The Iron Swallow)


After release of the song "Zhuravli", it became clear: some inner turn should be expected from The Hardkiss. Because it was something quite unexpected. Tender and transparent – but also deep, penetrating, and conscious of its own power. And the premonition tuned out right, the album "The Iron Swallow" is really a step forward in several directions at once..
Domestic price: 173.53UAH, International price: $15.92USD

YouCrane. Koly my budem znajomi. /digi-pack/. (When We are Acquainted)


At first glance – YouCrane just perform quality pop-rock with a variety of electronic admixtures. But, as known, the devil is in detail – to which the band definitely pays a lot of attention. Therefore, that results in a rather peculiar and interesting atmosphere, in which the positive charge does not block the sun for indie moods.
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

YouCrane. Again. /digi-pack/.


The second album by YouCrane clearly shows that the band has found its own voice, and that this voice is easy distinguished from the crowd. A certain very nice mix of romance with a touch of the 1980s, latent lo-fi-aesthetics, healthy carelessness in intonations – all of those create a new fairy tale atmosphere..
Domestic price: 122.95UAH, International price: $11.28USD

Yansen Kukansen. Dupadzhonidepa.


..the group performs cheerful rock with admixtures of pop punk and the aftertaste of hippy aesthetics. And it appears, really, sunny and positive – even though humor is far not the key (although noticeable enough) constituent of the songs' lyrics. This, in the end, is nice – because there are now more and more groups that try to joke, while we hardly witness more jokes)
