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, that is it is constructing a sort of a tower. Considering the name of the album we can assume that the tower has three floors. The first one is music, in which there are fewer and fewer superfluous sounds, that is why all lines are now well seen and sound even more expressly. The second one the texts, in which more and more freedom, professional treatment of language can be felt. The third one is general energy, and it quickly grows in pace with growth of the quality of the songs created. Thus, it does not seem just a chance that today Boombox, say in Russia, is almost more popular than at home (and this is in view of the really considerable popularity in Ukraine). And for a long time already it has been surprising nobody that exactly this music sounds in quite a lot of taxis... Well, a little more not about the name of the album. The songs in it sound, certainly, in three languages. Majority in Ukrainian, minority in Russian, one in English. Probably, this can be perceived as a hint at that the long promised work on an English album is already in process. Well, if the quality grows as it is growing now that will be a real boom. Let's wait. The third is not odd.

Green Grey. Greatest Hits. /digi-pack/.


In 2014, "Green Grey" is celebrating its 20th anniversary and the musicians have responsibly addressed that. They have released two new discs at once: the completely fresh album "The Leopard's Eye" and a collection of the best "Greatest Hits".
Domestic price: 195.33UAH, International price: $17.92USD

VovaZiL'vova. Prekrasne Inakshe. (The Beautiful Other)


...Over the years, much has changed it is obvious, one can hear that with the first words, intonations, with everything. Growing up, socialization yes, it is sometimes sad enough. However, in the case of VovaZIL'vova it is also an occasion for clever irony, direct criticism, but at the same time warm nostalgia and, oddly enough, honest optimism.
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Stereoliza. XYZ (X-amine your zippa). /re-edition 2007/.


This project, without exaggeration, has all chances to become in Ukraine one of the most interesting. "Stereoliza" combines pop music, elements of hip-hop, electronics, something of the disco mood and the mix appears actual both for Ukraine, and, literally, for the whole of our round Earth. It by no aspects concedes to the best world pieces of the genre.
Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Alfa Alfa. Rozprjahayte khloptsi koney. (Hey, Unbridle Horses)


You can hear Ukrainian folk songs mixed with such styles as hip-hop, soul, reggae, R'n'B we should say that the combination has appeared interesting indeed. And the thing is even not only the mix of styles in the end, there is lately no lack of experiments in this direction. However, whatever you might think, no "white" voice can be compared with what you will hear here.
Domestic price: 217.13UAH, International price: $19.92USD

VovaZiL'vova. Presenting: YoY#1.


You now have the opportunity to hear not only a new work by VovaZIL'vova, but also to meet an enormous number of his friends and colleagues in business. Among them, there are already known ones, and those who are not. Listen yourself there are really plenty of talented people able to create good and bright hip-hop of a high quality.
Domestic price: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

VovaZiL'vova. Vyno, kobity, patifon. (Wine, lasses, gramophone)


...And this man is hurt and cheered exactly as you are certainly, if it hurts and cheers you up. He simply remains himself and it impresses much stronger than any imaginary coolness. Because one feels it is not empty here.
Domestic price: 467.83UAH, International price: $42.92USD

D.Lemma. ...ce nashe. (...it's Ours)


This group was founded not so long time ago but still it was loud ambitious at once. Anyway it was not without a good reason...
Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Vchid U Zminnomu Vzutti. Prosto.


It is very easy to hook your ear on the hip-hop by V.U.Z.V. First, there are no questions concerning the quality it has appeared both sated and simple. And the second reason is the texts. Combination of cute jive and easygoing humor the combination advantageous and rare.
Domestic price: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Serhiy Babkin. Muzasfera. /mini-pack/. (MuseSphere)


Babkin manages to avoid profanity: his music had became lighter, but not primitive, the lyrics have become more concise but have not slipped into nonsense (besides for the first time! all songs of the album are in Ukrainian), in the end, the scale of the artist has changed, which is perceived in the way it is presented.
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

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

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: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

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: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

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: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

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

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: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

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

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

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..
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

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: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

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: 195.33UAH, International price: $17.92USD

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

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: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Druha Rika. Metanoia. P.1. /digi-pack/.


It seems that something has happened the "Druha Rika" band has changed. Significantly. In this case, everything came together surprisingly well true harmonization of everything that was there. The new album is music of people who know what they want and are really able to implement their idea exactly as they want to... Finally.
Domestic price: 133.85UAH, International price: $12.28USD

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

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: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Radioraj. Moya heohrafia. (My geography)


The "Radioheaven" project is a good example of rock music created just for the love of the process, not for any mercenary considerations. Thus, there is no cheap epatage, adolescent humor and disregard for detail in the sounding. While there is a quest for their own path, self-respect and, at the same time, self-irony.
Domestic price: 101.15UAH, International price: $9.28USD

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

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

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

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

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

Sertsevyj Napad. Golden $hits.


"Sertsevy Napad" is only five years old, and now you see the first official album by the group. But the guys decided not to wait long and to start from the middle therefore, the disc is not simply an album, but a sort of a "the best" collection. That is what the title hints at, not without irony "Golden $hits".
Domestic price: 112.05UAH, International price: $10.28USD

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: 162.63UAH, International price: $14.92USD

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

Kviten Ruin. Restavratsija. (Restoration)


The very first sounds with which this disc starts inspire quite a stable association with rock music of the 1960s and 1980s actually, a pleasant association. But and this is also pleasant the style palette of the album is varied and saturated enough. That is, this is rock, in which there is roll, and hard, and art, and atmospheric poetry and just poem...
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

SunSay. SunSay.


This album was about to become the third work of the band 5'nizza but unfortunately, while working at the album the musical concept was changed so much that the group broke up. Nevertheless, on the basis of it there appeared a new project the front man of which is Andriy Sun Zaporozhets. So the name of it derived from the leader's one.
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

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: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

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: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

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: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

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

Flyzzza. Teplo za hodynu.


I confidently and strongly recommend. To everyone who likes positive music and smiling texts, as well as to everyone who lacks green light and to whom the doctor prescribed that and for whom this doctor subscribed listen to "Flajzzza" group. Here, there is almost a bit of everything and all this is brewed on reggae, folk and funk. It is very tasty.
Domestic price: 195.33UAH, International price: $17.92USD

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

Tanok Na Maydani Kongo. Syla. (The Force)


The first song of the album was written in Bordo last summer during the tour along Atlantic ocean's coast right after their previous release "Pozhezhi mista Babylon". With the song "Syla" ("The Force") a new album has began. Later it became clear the new album must have the same title. So, "Syla".
Domestic price: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Tanok Na Maydani Kongo. Pozhezhi mista Babylon. /re-edition/. (Fires of the Babylon city)


It seems as if there were not less tricks in their songs, and the music had not grown fat, it had not developed a paunch, and the power of pressure had not disappeared anywhere. Everything is like that and not like that. Besides youthful burning, you can feel a real adult confidence in yourself, in your business, in the whole world.
Domestic price: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

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

Sergey Babkin. Motor. (Action)


His audience is growing if not with the speed of a lightning, then incessantly. At that, in three directions simultaneously. One the listeners who came to love his own songs. Second the audience who keep track of his theatrical life (i.e. "Theater 19"). Third readers who value interesting poetry.
