Mandarinovy Raj. PodyvysС u vikno. (Look Through the Window)
It may also happen so that you insert a disc, hear the first notes Ц and at once feel just warm and pleasant. You hear the notes to follow, listen to the words, listen to the second song, third Ц and it becomes even warmer and more pleasant. You listen on and secretly think Ц will these charms stay, won't they disappear because of a careless motion, inappropriate step? You wait and you are so eager that it did not disappear, and Ц it does not... And it is difficult to clearly define what the thing is, why exactly these songs warm you Ц unobtrusively, as a rain at night in summer. Maybe, this is music in which quiet lightness breathes, and that is why the line of each instrument flows easily, naturally. Even if some instrument arises only once in the album Ц and this is already professionalism, which can not always be found on debut discs. In fact, you would not say that arrangement of the songs is too complicated Ц but there lurks behind the external simplicity a sort of correct filling. Or, maybe, it is because of the singing Ц as though relaxed, a little bit tired, but at the same time concentrated. It does not strain, but it also keeps your attention Ц such voices, it seems, can be listened to during hours. Nothing pretended, nothing that would seem superfluous Ц you have nothing to do but to feel surprised how the young, in fact, group has acquired such ability to construct the space. But here it is, Mandarinovy Rai Ц real. We can only be glad, because here it is Ц cozy.

Druha Rika. Dva. (Two)


...when you listen to this music, the feeling is as if you are caught in a flow. And you do not know where it takes you, but somehow you are sure that it takes you somewhere where it is good and easy, where one can dream of flying and know that all dreams Ц can come true.

Armada. Nezhnost. (Tenderness)

Domestic price: 207.90UAH, International price: $18.90USD

AntytilA. Hello. /digi-pack/.


It seems that Antytila have finally discovered and tamed their wave: the new album is almost entirely composed of "blockbusters" Ц one imagines the picture where these songs sound at a stadium scale.
Domestic price: 163.90UAH, International price: $14.90USD

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 Ц but have not slipped into nonsense (besides Ц for the first time! Ц 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: 141.90UAH, International price: $12.90USD

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 Ц 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: 119.90UAH, International price: $10.90USD

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 diskТs cover. Therefore, in fact, all songs of the album are perceived as illustrations to this poem, a detailed commentary..
Domestic price: 163.90UAH, International price: $14.90USD

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


...According to Kharchyshyn, the title "The Pyramid" is a symbol of a summit Ц 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: 152.90UAH, International price: $13.90USD

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 Ц and sometimes it is love, while sometimes Ц confrontation. But always(!) there is something in common for all of us..
Domestic price: 163.90UAH, International price: $14.90USD

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: 152.90UAH, International price: $13.90USD

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 Ц the arrangements turn out diverse. On the other Ц 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: 163.90UAH, International price: $14.90USD

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 Ц but there is no issue of purity of style, everything just works for the sake of the resulting drive. Works well..
Domestic price: 141.90UAH, International price: $12.90USD

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: 113.30UAH, International price: $10.30USD

SKAY. Kray Neba. (The Edge of Heaven)


S.K.A.Y. can "bang" not only a melodic, beautiful ballad Ц but undoubtedly drive pieces as well, and "The Edge of Heaven" is just a good evidence to that. The album is quite concise Ц but thus it is as expressive as possible. Both in the melodies, and in individual music phrases Ц it is, so to say, precise. While the lyrics are, on the contrary, mostly romantic...
Domestic price: 163.90UAH, International price: $14.90USD

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


Green Grey decided not to abandon the combination of electronic music with rock aesthetics Ц 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

Dyki Sertsem. Bez zayvykh sliv. /digi-pack/. (Without Further Ado)


..The key issues covered in the texts are the request for people to have trust in their power, to help people around, to value beloved ones, to smile at every day, to learn from old mistakes, and most importantly Ц to be themselves.
Domestic price: 152.90UAH, International price: $13.90USD

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


"NedaremnO" tries to sound different. Not too "trimmed" Ц and it has its advantages, because lack of syrup makes the taste much more honest. There is some special drive Ц that young groups had in abundance 10 to 20 years ago, but which many of the current "novices" often lack.
Domestic price: 113.30UAH, International price: $10.30USD

Okean Elzy. Tam, de nas nema. /re-edition, digi-pack/. (Where We Are Not)


The first album of nowadays well-known Ukrainian group is in front of you. By the way, for the first time the glory has knocked to them due to a song "Tam, de nas nema"...
Domestic price: 130.90UAH, International price: $11.90USD

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


...the sound appears really clear, light, and sometimes almost fragile. Actually, it is possible to compare Ц because, in addition to new songs, you'll find here several songs from the previous album "In You". This is not yet homely comfort Ц but this is not desperate thunder of large scenes either, definitely.
Domestic price: 152.90UAH, International price: $13.90USD

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


It seems that something has happened Ц the "Druha Rika" band has changed. Significantly. In this case, everything came together surprisingly well Ц 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: 152.90UAH, International price: $13.90USD

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


To say that Pianoboy has pleased us with his debut work Ц it means to say not enough. I do not know who has been expecting for what Ц though after Okean Elzy, Esthetic Education and Zemfira one could hardly seriously anticipate a failure? Ц but I suspect that the album will surpass most expectations
Domestic price: 207.90UAH, International price: $18.90USD

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 Ц it happens in an easy and natural way. Such a cool simplicity. At the same time Ц it is a team play, in which no one pulls the blanket over himself.
Domestic price: 152.90UAH, International price: $13.90USD

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: 102.30UAH, International price: $9.30USD

TIK. Vesilny. (Wedding)


...the trademark self-irony is still there. To make sure Ц 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: 152.90UAH, International price: $13.90USD

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


Maybe, it is just about some personal maturing of the musicians Ц 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: 152.90UAH, International price: $13.90USD

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 Ц it is nice. And, moreover, there are two leading vocals at once Ц male and female Ц and that diversifies the sound and adds a certain semantic intrigue.
Domestic price: 141.90UAH, International price: $12.90USD

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


...A sort of an album of ballads. If you do not listen attentively Ц it seems very balanced. But when you are attentive Ц 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 Ц individual reflections.
Domestic price: 152.90UAH, International price: $13.90USD

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 Ц but also a lot of attention to nuances.
Domestic price: 141.90UAH, International price: $12.90USD

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 Ц even though humor is far not the key (although noticeable enough) constituent of the songs' lyrics. This, in the end, is nice Ц because there are now more and more groups that try to joke, while we hardly witness more jokes)
Domestic price: 119.90UAH, International price: $10.90USD

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 Ц 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 Ц "Golden $hits".
Domestic price: 113.30UAH, International price: $10.30USD

Mureny. Skhozha na osinС. (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 Ц 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: 141.90UAH, International price: $12.90USD

KvitenС 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 Ц actually, a pleasant association. But Ц and this is also pleasant Ц 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: 130.90UAH, International price: $11.90USD

SunSay. SunSay.


This album was about to become the third work of the band 5'nizza Ц 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 УSunФ Zaporozhets. So the name of it derived from the leader's one.
Domestic price: 152.90UAH, International price: $13.90USD

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 Ц 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? Ц yes. But not quite so, because in this music rock weighs a bit more than lightness now.
Domestic price: 152.90UAH, International price: $13.90USD

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 Ц the proof is in front of your eyes.
Domestic price: 130.90UAH, International price: $11.90USD

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 Ц listen to "Flajzzza" group. Here, there is almost a bit of everything Ц and all this is brewed on reggae, folk and funk. It is very tasty.
Domestic price: 152.90UAH, International price: $13.90USD

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: 152.90UAH, International price: $13.90USD

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 Ц and not like that. Besides youthful burning, you can feel a real adult confidence Ц in yourself, in your business, in the whole world.
Domestic price: 152.90UAH, International price: $13.90USD

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: 152.90UAH, International price: $13.90USD

Serhiy Babkin. Motor. (Action)


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