The Elephants. Colors. /premium, eco-pack/.
Despite the fact that none of the songs here can be called joyful – the disk leaves a surprisingly sunny aftertaste. Sunny and calm – as those moment when you snatch yourself out of the daily rush and engage – into sensing and living at this particular moment. Regardless the time of day or the season, regardless of your business, hopes, promises, or disappointments. Despite the fact that this is the debut album – it seems the guys truly understand what they want and how to achieve that. Probably, the production by Yenhen Filatov has played its role – in the end, some of the nuances of sound familiar due to pieces by ONUKA, Jamala, The Maneken can be heard here. However, a transformed context also transforms revealing of colors, by itself. Brevity, clarity of lines, softness of accents – sometimes even on the edge of being toylike. Transparent, like light shade, but with the perception of fullness, as if it is shade under water. 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. One wonders how it would sound in Ukrainian (the more so that it is a bit difficult to distinguish oneself here with English). And one looks forward to it to be continued.

The release contains a 16-page booklet with photo and lyrics of all the songs.

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: 255.74UAH, International price: $26.92USD

Vivienne Mort. Rosa. (EP). /mini-pack/.


..this music it saturated with some pristine but conscious magic. Vivienne Mort do not force themselves to release long-plays – but you would never say that their releases are unfinished, incomplete. On the contrary – these are really holistic, non-accidental expressions. Concise, yes – but is it a vice?
Domestic price: 141.74UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Sergey Babkin. #neubyvai. /digi-pack/. (#donotkill)


It's nice when a musician has something to say. The value of what is said is not determined by its amount, of course, but more than 70 minutes of high-quality music – that's still good. And Babkin produces quality – both in his music, in lyrics.
Domestic price: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

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: 135.66UAH, International price: $14.28USD

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: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Pianoboy. Ne prekraschay mechtat. /digi-pack/. (Don't Stop Dreaming)


Even from the perspective of the style, there is quite a rich mix of everything from hip-hop to dub and electronic music, a multitude of bright elements, elegantly and smoothly adjusted to each other and rather tastily flavoured with laconic fortepiano flashes. Plus, probably even more than last year, texts are important here.
Domestic price: 227.24UAH, International price: $23.92USD

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: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Sergey Babkin. Sergevna. /digi-pack/.


A powerful work – as expected. In terms of the music – colorful, with interesting arrangements, careful consideration of each track. No "pass-through" pieces – one can hear that. Voluminous, "visual" music – it feels like you can touch it with your fingertips, taste, and inhale its aroma...
Domestic price: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Voanerges. Tsilyuschy Rock Drevnyoho Kyeva. (The Healing Rock of the Ancient Kyiv)


...this music contains so much energy that it definitely leaves no room for indifference. Somewhere, it mesmerizes with art-rock passages, somewhere – it shamans with dusky rhythms, somewhere – adds a plenty of folklore patterns. And we should specifically mention that apart from the Ukrainian language, the Old Slavonic one sounds here.
Domestic price: 221.16UAH, International price: $23.28USD

Okean Elzy. Supersymmetry. /re-edition, digi-pack/.


Pay attention at the title of the album – it displays its content and its essence very well. The composition of the album and every of its songs, as well as their forms and content, strive to logical harmonicity, adjustedness of every musical move, every note.
Domestic price: 113.24UAH, International price: $11.92USD

DOK. DVA. /digi-pack/.


"Brutal pop power" – so they call it. But there is a great temptation to also add other words: post-rock plus acoustic acid jazz with trip hop education – something like this, probably. However, all these names do not contradict each other – because music like this as it is means going beyond the limits of specific style...
Domestic price: 154.66UAH, International price: $16.28USD

Voanerges. Boogaj Boogie.


This is already the third official studio album by "Voanerges" – and it seems to be the most complete, fully mature one. The fully jazz solos, trip-hop, funk trends, the archaic manner of singing, ska moods – all of that is here. However, these things are performed precisely – therefore, they are perceived exactly as beautiful decorations, not as a way of showing off.
Domestic price: 141.74UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Skryabin. Striptease +. (re-edition). /digi-pack/.


...the songs lyrics gain even more weight – this is an interesting and significant element, indeed. In them, skepticism, sarcasm, unwillingness to defend human weaknesses are combined – and the ability to feel true devotion to what you mock at. And on the intersection of these vectors, there unexpectedly appears some unusual, cool and tart, but – warmth.
Domestic price: 107.16UAH, International price: $11.28USD

Viy. Yshov ja nebom. /digi-pack/. (I Was Walking in the Sky)


...these musicians have always preferred travels deep inside. This time as well – if one wishes, he/she can discern in the fresh songs by the group political pamphlets and just a poignant evaluation of our historical nowadays. And if one does not – it is quite possible to let it go, because their symbolism is obviously deeper than the waves of our routine..
Domestic price: 132.24UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Dymna Sumish. V krajini iljuziy. /digi-pack/. (In the Country of Illusions)


How many people, having first heard the songs "In the Country of Illusions" and "No", decided that they should certainly buy-listen to the new disc by Dymna Sumish? I think, more than one thousand. How many of them will be disappointed having bought-listened to this disc? I think, none – Dymna Sumish, sure, is one of the most interesting groups on the Ukrainian independent scene.
Domestic price: 221.16UAH, International price: $23.28USD

U.RA. Radiosny. (RadioDreams)


It is as if a linen string, on which times and feelings, dreams and ways are strung as if pearls. This necklace sparkles softly, and in it there are as many secrets as beauty...
Domestic price: 113.24UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Johnny Bardo. Basket Case. /digi-pack/


Johnny Bardo is a solo project, a sort of an alter ego of Louis Franck, the leader of Esthetic Education. A bright, interesting project – no doubt. You should listen to one or two tracks only to make sure: everything is made in a talented, delicious, high-quality way. The project found its realization after Louis' return from a trip to India..
Domestic price: 160.74UAH, International price: $16.92USD

Esthetic Education. Face Reading. /digi-pack/


The cultivation of taste must simply be carried out - it must continue, and it must be carried out not in a separate point of space or in the framework of a certain musical style or trend.
Domestic price: 107.16UAH, International price: $11.28USD

Yuri Andrukhovych, Karbido. Absinthe. /super-pack/. (CD+DVD).


...a mysterious story of Stanislaus Perfecki – a poet, a traveler, and a performer who embarks upon a journey from Lviv to the West, and ultimately emerges in Venice, the City of Ghosts. There, he experiences a series of incredible adventures and falls in love with Ada Cytryna, his interpretress. Being forced to part with his beloved woman and unable to fulfil his special top secret mission, Perfecki vanishes..
Domestic price: 249.66UAH, International price: $26.28USD

Krobak. Nightbound. /digi-pack/.


This music lets into – and then does not let go so easy. It seems quite chamber one, but with bright prominences of scale. There is enough sophisticated space, sometimes resembling M. C. Escher's drawings, to simultaneously relax and mobilize. Nightbound does not allow for dissolving in the melancholy trance, they request co-participation..
Domestic price: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Zapaska. Pomalu. /eco-pack/.


"Sparklers in the eyes" – that's a line from the title song, "Pomalu", and this is the feeling that one listens through the entire album with. A quiet celebration of fragile landscapes, muted colors, and clear verbal sketches – this seeming simplicity borders on the finest intimacy, while remaining impermeable enough..
Domestic price: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

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: 135.66UAH, International price: $14.28USD

Atomic Simao. Sphyro. /digi-pack/.


The album "Sphyro" is rock, but with nuances in the domain of psychedelia, tending towards acid jazz, specific atmospherity, when you breathe in deeply, and the feeling is as if the calorie content of this air exceeds the limit...
Domestic price: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Gutzul Magik Foundation. Molfar. /digi-pack/.


"Molfar", I guess, is about the fact that there is no difference where from and where to, because there as always here-and-now. Where there is no place for hope – hope requires memory and time – and here all the space is occupied with.. attention? I do not even know – you stay in this space while the album plays on, and then this space just plays on in you..
Domestic price: 126.16UAH, International price: $13.28USD

Ti, Khto Vidayut. Movlennyek. (collection edition). /digi-pack/.


On the one hand – Mokh (Oleg Hnativ) has read authentic magic Huzul texts, sayings against evil forces. And their power can hardly be ignored. On the other hand – Kuzya (Serhiy Kuzminsky) created the music component and provided the entire material with that very specific sound that brings the album to some other orbit...
Domestic price: 135.66UAH, International price: $14.28USD

Karbido, Yuri Andrukhovych. Cinnamon (with "India" supplement). (CD + miniCD). /digi-pack/


Possibly, Andrukhovych did not exaggerate too much when he said that he did not expect any significant external resonance from his work with Karbido – he just had a lot of fun in the process. But sells-out during the whole "cinnamon" tour – are already a fact, and a pleasant one. Because it proves once again that the "underground" in the today's culture is not dust-covered nooks of outsider...
Domestic price: 249.66UAH, International price: $26.28USD

4.A.J.K.A. Aerodinamika.


...due to the dub basis and electronic "sparkles" 4.A.J.K.A  creates an interesting, energetically twilight atmosphere – here, we bow to trip-hop – but. Some guitar motions, as well as the trumpet, in spite of such "twilightness" of sounding – fill the music with extra fragile light, do not let it submerge irreversibly into the dark depths.
Domestic price: 107.16UAH, International price: $11.28USD

Krobak. The Diary of the Missed One.


At some instant this sort of music simply divides the dense mass of the audience into a sum of separate selves – in order to reunite them later, but already at another level. Then this is no longer a crowd, then these are people... It is possible to say otherwise. In this music, beauty is dissolved – which you listen and hear staying alone with yourself, even if there is someone else around...
