Oleh Skrypka. Zhorzhyna. /digi-pack/. (Dahlia)
"Dahlia" is actually a full-fledged development of the idea announced with the disc "My Heart is Vulnerable...". And this is what the official press release says about the album:

"Work on the album, which lasted over five years, took place in three global centers of the Ukrainian culture – it began in Toronto, continued in Kyiv and was completed in New York. The core of the album is formed by music pieces by Bogdan Vesolovsky – the composer who lived in Lviv in the 1930-40s and later emigrated for Canada for political reasons. The work carried out by Oleh and his team can be described as restoration – the unique music materials discovered in Toronto for many years were not performed for the public. In due time, when this music played, all the Galician and Bukovyna youth danced with it, and now modern ladies and gentlemen will also be able to enjoy the elegance, delicacy, and the light humor of the songs from our music heritage...

"I consider that the "retro" style, in which the album "Dahlia" is performed, is elegant – Oleh Skrypka says. – Moreover, jazz, tango, foxtrot, swing are generally considered European and overseas genres, and with this project I want to demonstrate that our country as well has its own rich, unique and high quality music history."

Note! This album is also released as a vinyl LP.

Victor Morozov, Batiar-band "Halychyna". Chudovyi son. Bohdan Vesolovsky songs. /digi-pack/. (Beautiful Dream)


It is not the first time when Viktor Morozov contributes into a small miracle of renaissance. This time – having recorded with BB "Halychyna" the retro album of songs by Bohdan Vesolovsky, a legend of Lviv light music of the first half of the 20th century. Although a little bit less than 100 years have passed – the lightness and enchantment have not been lost..

Kuku Shanel. Polubelaya-poluchernaya. (2CD). /digi-pack/. (Semi-White/Semi-Black)


This is stylish music, and not only due to the nice pastiches. Everything is just done simply – in the good sense, when the output sounds so easy and smiling that you never think about the previous hard work.

Yevhen Rohachevsky. Razom nazavzhdy. /vinyl 180g HQ Audiophile LP/. (Together Forever)


In terms of the sound, one would call this album, quite unexpectedly... a collection of romantic songs. The manner of performance, the melody pattern are somewhat reminiscent of Ukrainian – and not only – "vocal and instrumental ensembles" of the 1970s-80... German pressing (Schallplattenfabrik Pallas), heavy black 180g vinyl

Yevhen Rohachevsky. Razom nazavzhdy. /digi-pack/. (Together Forever)


In terms of the sound, one would call this album, quite unexpectedly, ... a collection of romantic songs. The manner of performance, the melody pattern are somewhat reminiscent of Ukrainian "vocal and instrumental ensembles" of the 1970s-80s: there was in that music a sort of sunshine, innocent, trusting openness to the world. Here – the same.

Akapulko. Dveri v Raj. /digi-pack/. (Heaven Door)


The author project by Serhiy Sakhno – the drummer of the legendary VV. "Akapulko" presents a completely new musical style, "trip-twist", as well as an incredible mix of Ukrainian melodies, dynamic hard "rock'n'pop", and the bluesy psychedelia of the 60s combined with the highly fashionable today "new sound of Berlin"...

Masterpieces of Ukrainian Music. Collection. 6 CDs box-set.


Probably, we should still say: these discs were not intended for sale, initially they were released only for the sake of presentation. But, fortunately, corporate schemes are not absolute yet – that is why various pleasant violations of rules are possible..

Yevhen Rohachevsky. Yickij Aun. (2CD).


Rogachevsky is the current guitarist of "VV". Starting from as long back as 1998. But he was also engaged in music earlier – actually, fruits of those exercises are collected in this double disk. We admit – these fruits are strange, and not everyone will enjoy tasting them. But if you like minimalism, punk, ska and rock-and-roll – by no means pass by it.

Dakh Daughters. Air. /digi-pack/.


It is obvious that something extraordinary was expected from DD – so that it were different from the first album but not inferior to it. The girls have met the both expectations, this is a cool art-house piece, quite far from the ordinary..
Domestic price: 152.90UAH, International price: $13.90USD

Dakh Daughters. If. /digi-pack/.


..a studio album is a different story, it offers an opportunity to hear, not to see: music balancing on the brink of theater. Due to the art of intonation, which sometimes reaches its extreme and takes a step further – but also due to the art of silence, which only rarely acts as a pause, taking a breath, but mostly it keeps producing supplementary senses.
Domestic price: 152.90UAH, International price: $13.90USD

Retroskop. Vesnyany tvist. /digi-pack/. (Spring Twist)


Love to simple beauty – that is, probably, what in due time conditioned emergence of the "Retroskop" band. And it should be noted that their liking for the music of the 1950s-60s was noticeable not only in performance of "classics of the genre"...
Domestic price: 119.90UAH, International price: $10.90USD

Jamala. All Or Nothing. /digi-pack/.


..It feels like listening to two albums simultaneously, one of which contains a colorful, complex mixture of styles, from soul and disco to electro-pop, with a bright admixture of classical training and jazz thinking. And the second one – blues, in all of its beautiful simplicity...
Domestic price: 196.90UAH, International price: $17.90USD

Oleh Skrypka. Zhorzhyna. /vinyl 180g HQ Audiophile LP/. (Dahlia)


The core of the album is represented by music compositions by Bohdan Wesolowski performed by Oleh Skrypka and "Zabava" jazz band. The composer and songwriter Wesolowski lived in Lviv in the 1930s-1940s, and his charming music enjoyed great popularity in Ukraine. German pressing, 180-gram vinyl.

Jamala. For Every Heart: Live at Arena Concert Plaza. (CD+DVD). /digi-pack/.


The concert performance – it is different, and not only due to presence of a new song. The sound, nuances of arrangements, team of musicians – but, above all – the energy. And this is the case when, even while just listening to the recording, you experience a kind of happening – not least due to Jamala's affection for gospel.
Domestic price: 262.90UAH, International price: $23.90USD

Jamala. For Every Heart. /digi-pack/


Jamala – and the debut album illustrates this very nicely – creates light music in the best Western tradition. And not just coolly – at a high quality level. Her love for soul, funk, jazz, burlesque and even classical music – it's all here, in this music so many things are mixed that you cannot guess everything at once...
