Smack Band, Skryabin. Skryabinos Muchachos.
Smack Band – it is its participants that act here as Skryabinos Muchachos – is one of the oldest jazz collectives of Ukraine specializing in performance of Latin America music. The group was founded as long ago as in the beginning of 1990 – however, during this time its composition has undergone changes. You should know that in 1993 it was Smack Band that released the first jazz compact disc in Ukraine, the album "Smack" – and got positive response for it in Europe and North America. But let us go back to these days. 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. An interesting album, unexpected. At least – for all those who have got used to that special sound and mood that is usually offered by Skryabin. Here it is quite different. So different that it is sometimes hard to believe – but thus it becomes only more interesting. Possibly, you will need to listen to the disc more than once in order to get used a bit to the new look at the familiar songs – but it is worth doing. Because Smack Band knows its business well, indeed. And because Kuzma was not reluctant to sing these songs anew especially for the project. And just because it is – a new point of view.

Smack Band. Coisa Ligeira. /digi-pack/.


The content of the new album by Smack Band completely corresponds to its name – it is really light and soft. That is what one needs on a sunny day to tune in unison with it (the day). That is what one needs in the event of a period of rain – so that it were lighter on the heart..

Smack Band. Just Music.


..from the first seconds the strong stream of jazz-rock and fusion strikes – the Latin American component is first completely hidden. It emerges gradually, as if the balance is leveled – but folk-rock waves in the spirit of Jethro Tull also emerge, and then gestures toward the ambient and the Scandinavian electronic jazz, and that's far from being all ...

Caipirinha. Caipirinha.


Very lively music, which almost imperceptibly but inexorably draws you into the circle of its fluctuations – even if you have never paid much attention to the Brazilian music.. At the same time – everything is so smooth and intelligent as it is possible when it comes to cool tunes, Latin American rhythms, and the energy of a warm holiday.

Dislocados. Pasaporte Universal. /digi-pack/.


Frankly speaking, none of the Umka.com.ua team was a fan of Hard Salsa – but, believe me, this in no way prevented us from enjoying what we heard. A very sunny, powerful work – and even an arrangement of the famous "Billie Jean" sounds completely organic here. However, it is not surprising...

Aby MC. Ocetni standarty. (Acid Standards)


They strikingly harmoniously combine clear sorrow, sadness – with joy as clear. And that is why there is inside always a place left for light. Usually, children have this ability – and it does not matter how old they are...

Pelican Jazz Quartet. From Spain to Brasil. /re-edition, digi-pack/.


...the disc by a completely different jazz project by Serhiy Krasheninnikov – Pelican Jazz Quartet. I hope you will enjoy this music – spontaneous, slightly peppery, far from finished grinding, unpredictable, as is Life itself. Indeed, Jazz is free music of free people! Free both in life, and in their self-expression...

Cherkasy Jazz Quintet. Latin Soul. /digi-pack/.


The wonderful and creative team of Cherkasy Jazz Quintet by Sergey Krasheninnikov addresses some well- (and not) known tunes of "Latinos jazz" and plays them in their usual hard-bop manner...

Braty Hadyukiny. Krasche. (The Best). /re-edition, digi-pack/.


This is the same as with anecdotes: either you understand and laugh – or you understand. In the rest of cases – it is better to go in for surfing in Sahara than to explain specificities of national humor. The same thing here, and the only thing we should pay attention to is the name of the disc.

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.

Okean Elzy. The Best. (2CD). /digi-pack/.


In 2014, Okean Elzy is massively celebrating its 20th anniversary – to be honest, it is even hard to believe that this music has been with us for so long. On the other hand – it still seems sometimes that it has always been with u... Anyway, it is absolutely logical that on this occasion the band has released a collection of the best..

Skryabin. Balady. /digi-pack/. (Ballads)


Since the share of lyrical songs in the bulk of works by "Skryabin" is gradually but steadily increasing – the attempt to create a sort of a collection of such lyrical songs seems justified. And the collection has worked out well – the disc is just up to its physical rims filled with nice melodies and good lyrics of varying degrees of depth.

SKAY. 10.


In the end of 2011, the group "S.K.A.I." loudly celebrated the 10th anniversary of its existence with a big concert in Kyiv – and with releasing, in fact, the anniversary collection, which you see now. The collection includes the best songs from all the three numbered albums released by the group during this time.

Braty Hadyukiny. Ya vernuvsya domiv. Tribute. /digi-pack/. (I Have Come Back Home)


The fact that it is a good album – I believe, it comes to one's mind right after just reading the list of songs. But one is wrong – because everything is much better than good. This CD is full of surprises and true revelations..
Domestic price: 174.90UAH, International price: $15.90USD

Boombox. Vse vklyucheno. /digi-pack/. (All Inclusive)


Well, here is finally the long-expected album by the new "Boombox" – new in the aspect of sounding. The trick is that this is material recorded in a rock manner. For this reason the work has the name "All Inclusive" – because everything is done here with the help of "live" instruments, and in particular – at participation of a real rhythm section.

Viy. Ochi Vid‘my. /Songs by the group Viy performed by Ukrainian musicians/. (Eyes of the Witch)


We can say only one thing for sure – look at the list of groups – so diversified musicians sound on the disk that no music preference will, most probably, remain unsatisfied. Provided, certainly, that the tastes revolve somewhere around rock music.

Skryabin. Cherez chuzhi okuljary. Tribute. (Through other's glasses. Tribute)


...he is able to write real songs, that is not empty ones – it is not surprising that so many people have taken part in the given project. Thus, twenty talented, famous and not so much performers, twenty songs by "Srjabin" of different years. Twenty meetings with the clever and even rather elegant, but still punk.

Brem Stoker. Zbyrane. (Condensed)


Unlike condensed milk, this disc does not contain any surpluses of sugar. Rather, vice versa – the guys from Bram Stocker have once again demonstrated clearly who they are. First, they were named a punk-group, though merry. Now, emphasis has shifted a bit, therefore now Bram Stocker is considered though merry, but a punk-group.
