Lyrical Underground

Taras Chubay, Kost' Jerofejev, Telnyuk Sisters and others.

Anniebri. Lo-Fi Feeling.


It would seem – just vocal and the piano. But this only verbally looks rather ascetic – in actual fact, a surprisingly powerful emotional current lives inside there. Actually, the way the voice and the piano sound – makes Hanna Brizhata, aka Anniebri, a truly unordinary phenomenon on our scene. Honestly speaking, I can hardly think about a single Ukrainian album resembling "Lo-Fi Feeling"...
Domestic price: 217.13UAH, International price: $19.92USD

Anno Domini. Sand & Stone.


It is a good soft jazz, light and fancy, but not too variegated to hurt your eyes. I am sure that it will be pleasant to listen to this jazz even for those who do not listen to any jazz at all, as there is no cold intellectual philosophising in it.
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

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: 122.95UAH, International price: $11.28USD

Sergey Babkin. Motor. (Action)


His audience is growing if not with the speed of a lightning, then – incessantly. At that, in three directions simultaneously. One – the listeners who came to love his own songs. Second – the audience who keep track of his theatrical life (i.e. "Theater 19"). Third – readers who value interesting poetry.
Domestic price: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

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: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

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: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Ol'ha Bohomolec'. For Lina Kostenko Con Amore. /Hyacinth Sun/. (2CD).


..the whole album is devoted to writings by Lina Kostenko. And one does not even want to say how much beauty, love, pain, intelligence, passion, contemplation are there in her poems.. Yes, all of this is there. But the main thing is that they are – extremely honest. And it is honesty that is able to make these beauty, pain, love, understanding – significant, deep, perceptible and important for others. For us.
Domestic price: 304.33UAH, International price: $27.92USD

Maria Burmaka. My jdemo!


...regardless of the age of these songs, one can see a slim and tender girl in each of them, the girl who with the first words of a song and with melodies used to open plainly the hearts of those who wanted to hear...
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Svyatoslav Vakarchuk. Vnochi. /digi-pack/. (At Night)


In spite of that “At Night” compositions do not meet the pop-format, the album is aimed at mass audience. The name, voice and the specific, characteristic of only Svyatoslav Vakarchuk melodics of the compositions will help fans of Ukrainian music become acquainted with new music forms, to seize new music territories.
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

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 – it happens in an easy and natural way. Such a cool simplicity. At the same time – it is a team play, in which no one pulls the blanket over himself.
Domestic price: 122.95UAH, International price: $11.28USD

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: 206.23UAH, International price: $18.92USD

Vivienne Mort. Anthology. /eco-pack/. (4CDs box-set +poster)


Shortly before the release of the new LP, "Experience," Vivienne Mort reprinted at one bout all the previous releases, from the debut "Pipino Theater" to EP "Rosa". In the cardboard box, you will discover 4 mini-vinyl records (preserving the original art) + a poster with Danielle's photo.
Domestic price: 282.53UAH, International price: $25.92USD

Vivienne Mort. Dosvid. /digi-pack/. (Experience)


Is there any way to measure experience? Even supposing that it is the sum of answers, all the knowledge you have gained. And what if experience is measured not with the number of answers, but with the quality of questions? Vivienne Mort seems to glide on the surface of a mirror on the other side of its bottomlessness – and puts dark pearls straight to your lips..
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Vasya Club, Vasyl Hontarsky. Rus‘kyy al‘bom. (Russian Album)


Strange as it may appear, but you’ll find a good deal of novelties on the disc – the songs that have never been released before. And personally I consider them to be just wonderful songs. Anyway, the famous works also warm the heart. This is like it often happens with cronies whose close relationship doesn’t depend on circumstances. All this makes not a compilation but an album of a full value with incredibly crystal, lyrical and high spirits.
Domestic price: 122.95UAH, International price: $11.28USD

Vasyl Hontarsky. Akustyka. (Acoustics)


This is simultaneously the simplest and the most complicated format – there is nothing but the guitar and voice, and you either sound or you'd better not even start... "Acoustics" is the last real album by Vasyl Gontarsky, the fifth one. No others will follow. If everyone left behind so fair traces – the land would shine under our feet...
Domestic price: 155.65UAH, International price: $14.28USD

Olga Hura. Zhinka epohy Vidrodzhennya. (The Renaissance Epoch Woman)


"The Renaissance Epoch Woman" is the first author songs album by the singer that includes 12 versatile tracks (from the "New Age" style to the classics and ethnics), permeated with the idea of cultural renaissance, harmony, and spirituality.
Domestic price: 122.95UAH, International price: $11.28USD

Hurt Mandrivnykh Dyakiv "Vertep". Buchalchyn gandzh.


The group offers to us radiant, expressive pictures. They masterfully implement the style eclecticism in the music line – it became the background for poetry both varied and transparent. Moreover, the whole album is penetrated with kind humor.
Domestic price: 122.95UAH, International price: $11.28USD

Vuraj. Rajok. /digi-pack/.


Belarus bands famous here are specific in their artistic, nonlinear attitude to arrangements, self-irony and – they are somehow particularly enlightened, I guess. When one listens to them – sometimes it seems that they are singing the anthem of the Sun, facing the dark wall of the ancient forest. And Vuraj in this regard is no exception.
Domestic price: 122.95UAH, International price: $11.28USD

Hycz Orkestr. Tsilyi. /eco-pack, premium edition/. (Whole)


HYCZ Orchestra are intelligent hooligans who manage to implement sometimes non-obvious musical ideas in an elegant and obviously quite simple way. But this simplicity is a consequence of technical skills, creative freedom, tact and taste, so fragrant surprises can be found in almost every song of "Whole" album, the potency of it is okay.
Domestic price: 133.85UAH, International price: $12.28USD

Gogol Bordello. Multi Kontra Culti vs. Irony.


During the recent years, Gogol Bordello has become, probably, one of the most popular eccentric bands in the entire world – while it plays not quite, so to speak, commercial music. Though, on the other hand, in these songs so much is mixed that the definition "gipsy ska-punk" does not convey even a half of it...
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Tanya Gosudareva. Vil‘na. (Free)


Frankly speaking – we have long not heard absolutely new names in the domain of the lyrically intellectual song. Such what would be not quite rock, and far not pop. New albums – yes, but new people – for approximately a few months already, if not years, we have not had novices here. Well, meet – Tanya Gosudareva, it seems, has the mission of correcting this historic injustice.
Domestic price: 112.05UAH, International price: $10.28USD

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: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

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: 253.75UAH, International price: $23.28USD

The Elephants. Colors. /premium, eco-pack/.


Brevity, clarity of lines, softness of accents – sometimes even on the edge of being toylike. Transparent, like light shade. 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.
Domestic price: 133.85UAH, International price: $12.28USD

Nik Efremov. Rytsar. (Knight)


By and large, the album "Knight" continues the lines announced in the previous work by Mykola Efremov. Here you can find both soft lyricism, and epic sketches. If there are acoustic guitars – they are very transparent, they sound weightlessly, one senses the space and fresh air. If electric ones – this is already an art-rock scope..
Domestic price: 122.95UAH, International price: $11.28USD

Iryna Zhytynska, Taras Zhytynsky. Duet.


The album "Duet" is a combination of not only two voices. This is synthesis of two very different manners of performance, schools, music styles, and aesthetics. Since Taras Zhytynsky is a rock singer, and Iryna Zhytynska is an opera singer (mezzo-soprano), a soloist of Wroclaw Opera House...
Domestic price: 122.95UAH, International price: $11.28USD

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: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

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: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Olexandr Ihnatusha. White Wolve. /digi-pack/


At a certain moment it seems as if you were listening not to a simple musical album, but to a collection of songs from films. From old and kind films about love, striving, laugh and tears, nonsense and serious questions of life.
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

ILLaria. 13 misyatsiv. /digi-pack/. (13 Months)


...Ukrainian authenticity is primarily the mystical energy of the earth and the complete harmony with the space. This is very powerful music! The new disc by ILLARIA is a kind of a calendar of Ukrainian music traditions. It includes cover versions of well-known folk songs based on authentic archival records.
Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

CoMaha (Maria Hmeleva). Nizhnist'. (Tenderness)


"CoMaha" is a project by Maria Hmeljova, the flutists of the group "YoGhurt" (actually, the other magicians from this music family did not stay aside either). And, you know, it is infrequent that one comes across such fragile, delicate music. And here everything is at its place, everything is transparent and sunny...
Domestic price: 206.23UAH, International price: $18.92USD

Korolivs'ki Zajci. Serce-Misyac'. /digi-pack/. (Moon Heart)


It seems that more than 10 years have passed since the release of the previous album by "Korolivski Zaytsi" – and, perhaps, few could expect continuation. Although, given the first works by the group, this long silence has had to upset all lovers of good poetry decorated with patterns of alternative music.
Domestic price: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

KRUT. Arche. /digi-pack/.


..a full-fledged author album wrapped around the bandura so that the music intertwines several styles, from jazz and soul to blues and pop funk. Thus, "Arche" appeals not only (and not so much) to the Ukrainian tradition: it is an attempt to break stereotypes and at a dialog of cultures. A worthy attempt and vivid dialog.
Domestic price: 184.43UAH, International price: $16.92USD

Kroky. Volodar Tajemnyts‘. (Lord of Secrets)


The group Kroky (Steps) stands out for two reasons. First – against the general background, as creativity of the group is subordinated to ideas not quite typical for lyric underground. And to continue – the group advantageously differs even against the background of their trend colleagues.
Domestic price: 122.95UAH, International price: $11.28USD

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.
Domestic price: 173.53UAH, International price: $15.92USD

LoTus, Rosava. LoTus feat. Rosava.


As a rule the idea of heroic nature has never even crossed the minds of the heroic figures. Moreover they can even get frightened if one alludes to this. But still they continue doing their work. Just because it is their... It’s no use in objecting to the fact that real musicians, the same as the real music, begin with an ability to listen carefully. To listen and to hear.
Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Luchanna, Anatoly Alexanian. 4/10. (EP). /digi-pack/.


This discs represents the last episode in the work by Anatoly Alexanian. It happened so that during the last days (none could know that those were the last ones), he productively cooperated with young singer and poet Anya Luchihina. They worked together on recording of an album of ten song...
Domestic price: 119.03UAH, International price: $10.92USD

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


Maybe, it is just about some personal maturing of the musicians – 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: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Victor Morozov, Batiar-band "Halychyna". Batiar Blues. /digi-pack/.


"Batiar Blues" is, perhaps, the most striking album of this series – adults, respected professionals, play as if children here. Only, unlike children, they have behind their backs – 40 years of very diverse experience and no fear to look funny. And this is true power..
Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

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..
Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

ILLaria, Alex Nademski. 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: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

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: 199.25UAH, International price: $18.28USD

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: 260.73UAH, International price: $23.92USD

Oneyroid. Khoden'. /digi-pack/.


This is music with its own identity. And it's not only about interesting arrangements – listen to the lyrics: this is not simulation of rural folklore, this is its urban rethinking, but not limited to the city. Somewhere there, a universal key to the roots reside...
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

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


...the sound appears really clear, light, and sometimes almost fragile. Actually, it is possible to compare – because, in addition to new songs, you'll find here several songs from the previous album "In You". This is not yet homely comfort – but this is not desperate thunder of large scenes either, definitely.
Domestic price: 122.95UAH, International price: $11.28USD

Ocheretyany Kit. Dvadtsiat krokiv. /digi-pack/. (Twenty Steps)


..it is absence of didacticism in the lyrics and of any mention of magic, as opposed to the skill of noticing the details that make up the everyday life – but noticing in a way that the listener slightly shifts the "assembly point". The reality's magic is routine, this is what one can hear and feel here at full force.
Domestic price: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Ocheretyany Kit. Dvadtsiat krokiv. /book+CD/. (Twenty Steps)


..So, this book/album is also a small gallery, a combination of various arts as an attempt to achieve the magical effect of transfer of "reed worlds", and not only. In this search for the miraculous, we have tried to find our path over the 20 years – in 20 steps – towards something larger and better.
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Panivalkova. Dontvori. /premium, eco-pack/. (Don't Worry)


..One can simply enjoy the concise arrangements with colorful spices. Or one can discover in these melodies, intonations, and pauses styling on the verge of grotesque. Or – one can hear stories that it is impossible to tell in any other way than this. Sentimental and ironic. And ask: why?
Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

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


To say that Pianoboy has pleased us with his debut work – it means to say not enough. I do not know who has been expecting for what – though after Okean Elzy, Esthetic Education and Zemfira one could hardly seriously anticipate a failure? – but I suspect that the album will surpass most expectations
Domestic price: 260.73UAH, International price: $23.92USD

Pianoboy. Ne prekraschay mechtat. /vinyl 140g LP/. (Don't Stop Dreaming)


Please, find out the current price by writing to info@umka.com.ua. The main theme of the disc is expressed in the title – a thin thread of hope and faith in dreams permeates and unites all the songs in the album... (Czech pressing, black vinyl LP, 140g)
Domestic price: 0.00UAH, International price: $0.00USD
This item is not available for the moment

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: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Sashko Polozhynsky. Po-Vilno. /digi-pack/. (S-Law-ly)


Sashko Polozhynsky, as a modest person, did not print his name on the cover of this album – because he did not perform as a singer in this case (except for, it seems, only one song). But – he is the author of the idea, the producer, the sole jury selecting the songs, etc.
Domestic price: 122.95UAH, International price: $11.28USD

Postman. Being High. /mini-pack/.


..In musical terms, this is clearly stemming from what Bob Dylan, Simon & Garfunkel, Donovan, and others were doing some long time ago. Stemming from – but not copying, it is just that in Postman's songs there are the same ease and the content that make it possible to anticipate the extra depth, without any prejudice to the beauty.
Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Postman. Everything Is New. /digi-pack/.


Postman reserves the right, being a participant of certain events, to step into the shadow behind the light boards and become an observer. A light man. The one who asks: why? at what price? what for? The one who answers: in the turmoil of trifle things, in random intersections, in uncertain movements of our hearts we remain ourselves..
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Propala Hramota. Chudernatska syla. /eco-pack/. (Freakish Power)


It was planned that this disc would only be sold at concerts, but now "Freakish Power" can encounter us anywhere and anytime, and this is – incredibly good. Another fragrant brick for Podillya foundation... I sincerely advise you to cast away umbrellas and the rest of protection means – otherwise there is the risk of just failing to contain.
Domestic price: 122.95UAH, International price: $11.28USD

Pur:Pur. Papercuts. (EP). /digi-pack/.


The same case when you listen – and you just delicious, let it be said that this nearly weightless blend call. And that is why, perhaps, it seems that musicians Pur:Pur can easily fit in any cultural landscape – or, conversely, to write it in your sunny space.
Domestic price: 122.95UAH, International price: $11.28USD

5'nizza. KU. /super-pack/.


..there is much less boyish hooliganism, the characters have matured, sure, thus having lost something cloudless. And having gained something significant in return, it seems. At least, they have something to say and sometimes may even do that with a smile – which now contains much more shades. What you will hear – depends on yourself. 5'nizza opens various doors..
Domestic price: 162.63UAH, International price: $14.92USD

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: 122.95UAH, International price: $11.28USD

Rosava. teper i potim. (now and then)


You now see already the fourth album released with the name of Rosava on the cover – and it is again absolutely different from all previous ones. However, there is still something in common: this is again – cool. Beautiful.. If all Ukrainian pop-music stuck to such level – the word "muzak" would, probably, quickly disappear from our language..
Domestic price: 253.75UAH, International price: $23.28USD

Svet, Tanya Sha. Ten Step Journey.


Fortunately, sometimes you run across the albums about which it is very difficult to say anything – because you just frankly like them. Because, in spite of external simplicity, they contain so many ideas, various subtleties – one's ears just go astray..) Because the music tells you stories without words, while the words tell you stories full to the brims with music..
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Telnyuk Sisters. Tysha i Grim. (Silence and thunder)


Cheerful mixture of jazz, rock. But the main thing is that this album is an integral work of art which blazes and cherishes, embraces and  pushes,  enervates and inspires.
Domestic price: 544.13UAH, International price: $49.92USD

Oleh Skrypka. Vidrada. (premium release). /digi-pack/. (Delight)

Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Oleh Skrypka. Vidrada. /vinyl 180g HQ Audiophile LP/. (Delight)


The first studio solo album by Oleh Skrypka (2004) contains the hits "Tombe la neige", "Fever", "Rien de rien", "Vidrada". (German pressing, heavy white 180gr vinyl)
Domestic price: 755.15UAH, International price: $69.28USD

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: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Skryabin. Khrobak. (re-edition). /digi-pack/. (Worm)


There is quite a great temptation to consider "Worm" a turning point album in Skryabin's work. At all events, against the background of all previous works it stands absolutely aloof. Skryabin abandons the light, dancing direction and, to a certain extent, goes back to the initial gloomy style – but already at a different quality level...
Domestic price: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

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: 112.05UAH, International price: $10.28USD

Social Classes. Unplugged. (2CD). /mini-pack/.


...a semi-acoustic recording that allows one to fully experience the inner poetics of the space. The guitar, percussion, bass, occasionally keyboards – well, and, sure, singing (complemented with recitative). Actually, one does not need anything more – at least, one does not perceive any shortage.

Levko Tymoshchuk. Kriz plach ta stohin... /digi-pack/. (Through Cry and Moan...)


..and one can hear here verses by Stus, Sosyura, Ukrainka, Lysheha, Shevchenko – just listen how up-to-date the lines written by these people in the seemingly different epochs sound. Although in some general sense, they belong to the same epoch – that of self-realization. "Hit that rock"...

TyshaKids. Zhyva vinila. (Live Vinyl)


..the album is not homogeneous, it has both sadness and joy, and lightness, and twilight, and seriousness, as different expressions of the same – and beautiful – face. While there is no – fear, although words about fear still can be heard from time to time. However, everybody trying to follow his/her path honestly unavoidably reflects on that – and slender honesty can be felt in every song of the album.

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.

Trychi. PoNeDilOK. /digi-pack/


It took about two years for this triple union to finally ripen – and, justifying all expectations, the drink has appeared really interesting and decent. You cannot gulp it in one go to forget the next instant – no, here you will want to savor, to come back repeatedly. And attractiveness of this music in that it lives on the border among absolutely different styles, takes something from each but belongs to none of them in full.

Solomia Chubay. Kolyskovi dlya Oleksy. /eco-pack/. (Lullabies for Oleksa)


..they convey the energy of the family circle, comfort, support – they "program" one for a good life. At the same time, in their sounding, there is certain specific courage, a bit of anxiety, the desire to protect... And there is a reason for that. "Lullabies for Oleksa" is not just a music album as such..

Taras Chubay. Nash Ivasyuk.


The songs collected here are unconditionally able to create a wonderful mood and inspiration to study life from inside, plunging into it with your head and, of course, with your heart. These are the songs of the open love which is not limited by anything which deserves been returned.

Taras Chubay, Plach Yeremiji. Svitlo i spovid'. (Light and Confession)


"Light and confession" – this is aspiration for renewal of feedback between me and my Father, between present generation and the generation of 1970-s", Taras Chubaj exposes the sacral content of the album.

Kozak System, Taras Chubay. Pisni Samonavedennya: HOMIN' Songs. /digi-pack/. (Self-Direction Songs)


..the union of Chubay and KS has produced something third as an output. The basis of the album is the Ukrainian folklore in the entourage of Jamaican rhythms, although in the course of the work they added a diversity of other spices to it: both in the details of the arrangements, and in the form of the lyrics by Moskalets and Antonych...

Taras Chubay, Kozak System. Homin' Songs. /vinyl 140g LP/.


German pressing (EDC), black 140gr vinyl LP. The basis of the album is the Ukrainian folklore in the entourage of Jamaican rhythms, although in the course of the work they added a diversity of other spices to it: both in the details of the arrangements, and in the form of the lyrics by Moskalets and Svydnytsky.
Domestic price: 511.43UAH, International price: $46.92USD

Serhiy Shyshkin. Zapadenska zyma, vesna, lito... /digi-pack/. (Winter, Spring, and Summer from the West...)


There is, you know, a specific kind of songs –almost calm apparently, but with a powerful internal drive. Sure, if you listen to the lyrics..
Domestic price: 101.15UAH, International price: $9.28USD

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.

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..

Taras Chubay, Kuzma Skryabin, Molotov 20. Nashi partysany. /cassette/. (Our Guerrillas)


Audio cassette. ..This is, without exaggeration, a legendary album. And it was not even about the list of the project's authors.. The album was first released in 2000 – and it was perhaps the first collection of insurgents' songs in modern arrangements in Ukraine. And it still, in my opinion, remains the best one.
