Kuku Shanel. Polubelaya-poluchernaya. (2CD). /digi-pack/. (Semi-White/Semi-Black)
From the first second of hearing the sounding you realize: the new project by Maria Kudryavtseva (ex- "Bozhychi" and "Soncekliosh") is not something "occasional", it has its own atmosphere. A different one. Definitely tasty if European model street chanson is to your taste, if you like a somewhat cinematographic style with a subtle nod to the 1920's and 1930's. However, there is also enough soft naughtiness on other topics as well. 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. The basic composition is only four musicians, but due to good arrangements this music appears really rich, with lots of petty but effective decorations. Another very important advantage that's, actually, the lyrics. True poetry live, ambiguous, ironic, somewhere deep, somewhere capricious, in any case interesting. The album consists of two discs: the first one in Ukrainian, the second one in Russian. Perhaps, it was a fundamental point not to mix but as a result one drink all of it bottom up with great pleasure. Sipping, slowly, because it is delicious..

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..

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"...

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.

Oleh Skrypka. Zhorzhyna. /digi-pack/. (Dahlia)


"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."

Jonych & Tsypa band. Kvasyty v Kvasakh. /digi-pack/. (Boozing in Kvasy (in Booze))


Who is Jonych? A legend has it that this is a lost and happily re-discovered brother of Myroslav Johnych Kuvaldin one-eyed, as if Odin, sharp as a colic in one's side, and serious as a fraudster's business. Honored since 1853. And so it happened that he also loved singing well, in his own way, nothing in common with The Vyo..

The VYO. Zeleny. /digi-pack/. (Green)


With this music there are all the chances to swim to the summer almost unnoticeably, without straining where this is not needed. Ukrainian reggae with a mischievous smile and a hardened core. Just put on repeat so much so that your hand reaches out for that and you should not interfere with it.
Domestic price: 141.90UAH, International price: $12.90USD

Luiku. Yeher Mayster. /digi-pack/. (Yeger Meister)


Luiku is rather ironic dance music with a very pronounced folk component, the accelerated Ukrainian gypsy romance supplemented with Turkish, Polish, Romanian, and Hungarian lines. The music, besides being catchy (although there are also a couple of relaxed pieces), is also very, so to speak, convex.

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 but there is no issue of purity of style, everything just works for the sake of the resulting drive. Works well..

Ot Vinta. Pilotka. /digi-pack/. (The Forage Cap)


..there is so much drive that one can hardly believe its "acousticity". And one of the causes of such sound is the truly rich set of instruments used by the musicians during the recording (guitar, banjo, harmonica, kazoo, ukulele, flute, kozobass, xylophone, etc.). Very rich and bright just like always with "Ot Vinta"..
Domestic price: 240.90UAH, International price: $21.90USD

Braty Hadyukiny. Made in Ukraine. /digi-pack/.


...this is about us. The ordinary people in the changing times, when it is both scary, and funny, and one wants to go faster, while one needs to move carefully. Because nobody but us will live through these times for u... That's how it is put in the song "Play!": "Dad taught me my dad, the last Jedi play, play on your drymba, play the song of joy..."

Dzidzio. The super-popular album HaHaHa.


..the sound of Dzidzio, to some extent, can be seen as witty banter with reference to the early Skryabin but, since it's music with a smile, do not look for the neoromantic haze here. Rather, it resembles ironic exercises by Braty Hadyukiny. And if you look a little bit closer, songs by Dzidzio resemble kolomyika...

Audio cassette/
Domestic price: 350.90UAH, International price: $31.90USD

Vpershe Chuyu. PryamoTok. /digi-pack/. (ForwardFlow)


As far as we know this is the first album in Ukraine (at least, among officially released ones) dedicated to bikers. Dedicated not only formally, but also thematically. However, the disc "Biker Sich" has been released just recently but it was a collection of favorite songs, not the author's dedication album. A significant difference.
Domestic price: 124.30UAH, International price: $11.30USD

TIK. Vesilny. (Wedding)


...the trademark self-irony is still there. To make sure 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: 130.90UAH, International price: $11.90USD

Braty Hadyukiny. Schaslyvoi dorohy! /cassette/. (Good Riddance!)


Audio cassette/ ..The forth album of Hadiukiny. Grown-up album.
Domestic price: 141.90UAH, International price: $12.90USD

Antin Mukharsky. Snizhana Yehorova. Village Glam. /digi-pack/


It is very cool that Antin Muharsky has not abandoned his field research of rural glamour in the Ukrainian context. Moreover it seems that he has decided to undertake for this good cause a real family contract. But the main thing is that Muharsky has again succeeded in adding to the dozen of songs of the album a double portion of positive pepper..

Nouta iz "Detsy". Rusynsky rok.


If one listens to the texts and one does need to listen it becomes clear that this is just banter punk, that's it. Well, and outside all of this is wrapped in a sort of "all-in-one", bright kitsch, which mixes professionalism, mockingly truthful curtsy to rural tapeurs, quite a bit of quotations from world hits plus the specific feature in the form of various auxiliary noises.
Domestic price: 207.90UAH, International price: $18.90USD

Siryk B.A.N.D. Zadovbalo!!! (Sick With It!!!)


Siryk B.A.N.D. is as though the voice of such metropolis in which everything is mixed up but has not got lost. So, elements of synth-pop, hip-hop, psychedelics, punk, ethnic hints coexist incredibly harmoniously one should have truly impartial views in order that this kind of mixtures sounded qualitatively. They have them.

Antin Mukharsky. Zlokohoochy Man.


Actually, once such songs were characteristic of only one country in the world but since then the Earth has become considerably more rounded. Consequently, maybe, there is nothing strange in that we observe appearance of sheer Ukrainian songs in the country style. In the end, we have appropriate landscape...
