Luk. Sex.
It is strange and unfair for their performances abroad "Luk" spend more time than for Ukrainian performances. However, no, not strange but unfair. I hope that in the course of time it will be changed due to increasing of tour rounds it will be only to the benefit of the world. You now see the last as on today, the third album of the group and do not even doubt that it is good. It is good. Possibly, even the best of all. Soft and light I do not know how this may happen, but there is even more softness and lightness in it than in previous works. One thing remains unchanged the feeling of soft, friendly smile arises at once, from the very first notes. And it does not subside right to the end of the disk, and even some time after that. And another thing remains as well "Luk", as well as before, sings in three languages. Plus the language of light in eyes, smooth motions. 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... Very heartfelt and warm meeting that necessarily must have its continuation. Ok, we will wait. In the end, waiting with this music is also easy.

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..

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...

the Maneken. Sale%. /premium, eco-pack/.


Given the amount of work that Filatov is doing for a number of other performers, it is even surprising that he has enough energy and inspiration for his own project. However he has enough. Enough energy, and imagination, and taste. Always in motion, in the process of development, always better than before or, at least, different. The new album is an excellent illustration of this vector.
Domestic price: 152.90UAH, International price: $13.90USD

The Hardkiss. Perfection Is a Lie. /premium, eco-pack/.


..Even in the ballads this inner power cannot be hidden, it can be perceived almost physically. Perfection is a lie, of course but nobody forbids strive and work for it. The Hardkiss is obviously one of those who aspire and work hard.
Domestic price: 163.90UAH, International price: $14.90USD

Alloise. Episodes. /digi-pack/.


Sure, "Episodes" is pop music, but it is also sure to be intelligent pop-music, multi-layered, and interesting. That lives somewhere on the edge and thus it is capable of transforming its audience. If you wish, dark pop. The promise of taking through the darkness and bringing into something new it is there.

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.

Tonya Matvienko. ANTONINA project. /digi-pack/.


The basis for this experiment was recordings of singing by Tonya Matvienko's granny Antonina made 40 years ago. Due to digitalization of the records Tonya is actually singing as a duet with her grandmother... However, this is not the only amusing thing about the project: the music component appears quite far from simple dance and variety rails.
Domestic price: 141.90UAH, International price: $12.90USD

Jamala. Podykh. /digi-pack/. (Breath)


..It is amazing how this voice is revealed in the thirteen steps of the quiet power. "Breath" is a soft and strong, weightless and confident, fragrant and unobtrusive album. Cool.
Domestic price: 152.90UAH, International price: $13.90USD

The Hardkiss. Stones and Honey. (re-edition). /digi-pack/.


..it is clear this was a considerable piece of work but it is the "work" that you actually don't hear. One can hear clear energy, passion, and the ability to present simple lines in a truly delicious way. However, not all the arrangements are that straightforward and, given the "lightness" of the genre, this approach especially pleases.
Domestic price: 152.90UAH, International price: $13.90USD

Ivan Dorn. Randorn. /premium, digi-pack/.


..it is difficult to explain magic and there is some of it, and one does not need to be an apologist of relevance to feel it. Ivan Dorn and his friends produce true pop music lightweight, smart, eclectic, and specific. Young. With genuine charm. Cool, nothing to say...

Alex Nademski, ILLaria. Podykh. /digi-pack/. (Breath)


It is Alex Nademski who is the author of the project and, in particular, of all the lyrics and the music (although he says he only recorded what came to him). ILLaria is a "guest star," the voice. Still, when one listens, it's hard to say whose role is the leading one the both worked at their full capacity, that's sure.
Domestic price: 174.90UAH, International price: $15.90USD

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: 196.90UAH, International price: $17.90USD

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...
Domestic price: 256.08UAH, International price: $23.28USD

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: 131.12UAH, International price: $11.92USD

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.

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: 130.90UAH, International price: $11.90USD

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: 130.90UAH, International price: $11.90USD

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: 130.90UAH, International price: $11.90USD

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: 130.90UAH, International price: $11.90USD

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...
Domestic price: 152.90UAH, International price: $13.90USD

Stelsi. Tovarystvo z bezmezhnoju bezvidpovidalnistju. (Unlimited unliability Company)


We could say Stelsi has succeeded, not losing its dance lightness, in creating a lyric, honest, rich in content album on a frisky crossing of very different styles. An album about life. Life is different but, in any case, completely ours.
Domestic price: 196.90UAH, International price: $17.90USD

Saralunden, Andrey Kiritchenko. There was no end. (EP).


Just an ideal balance between affability to the listener and self-absorbed contemplation. Conditionally, a sort of semi-acoustic, minimalist trip-hop. But far not any trip-hop would afford so much fresh, transparent air in sounding as here.
Domestic price: 152.90UAH, International price: $13.90USD

Ivan Samshit. Essential Shit. /digi-pack/


Electronic romances, dances full of sense, transcendental lyrics of clearances between worlds, enchanted and warm immersion in evening snow... Ivan Samshit strange knights of the transparent autumn of urban stones. Sometimes it seems that the very enigma of the night before the dawn speaks to us through the voice of Petro Dain...
Domestic price: 196.90UAH, International price: $17.90USD

Nikita. ChamelEon.


She as though plays, but so sincerely as only children can she does not pretend but really lives in it. And that is why you trust it. Such discs are as if clothes of a Transparent Gipsy. Now beautiful and then just fanciful. Made of a thousand shreds, each of them having its own story...
Domestic price: 201.08UAH, International price: $18.28USD

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: 152.90UAH, International price: $13.90USD

Luk. Lemon.


Luk inserts itself into te space organically. This album music has got a heart. I dont know how but I know it...
Domestic price: 152.90UAH, International price: $13.90USD

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.
