Zapaska. Pomalu. /eco-pack/.

"Sparklers in the eyes" Ц 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 Ц this seeming simplicity borders on the finest intimacy, while remaining impermeable enough. But sometimes the shell cracks, and then the breaks start Ц shining.. Lo-fi, post-rock, psychedelia, neo-folk Ц these scar patches slowly slide off the skin and dissolve somewhere, in the vague light of lanterns of the unconscious. The album.. imagine a solar eclipse Ц full. And that's the moment when you see the abyss of the dark circle, the solar corona, and here, around, the world acquires some bizarre lighting, and the sense of reality grows surprisingly uncertain Ц that is the moment that "Pomalu"'s sound is about. Powerful without anguish, self-sufficient, convincing in its enchanted slowness. Fair.

Anton Yozhyk Leyba (Hedgehog)

I should probably mention that according to the British newspaper Overblown, for example, the Pomalu album was named the best in 2016 across the entire post-Soviet space.

Ptakh_Jung. Black Period. /digi-pack/.


..as a matter of fact, Ptakh_Jung's music turns out to be a great accompaniment for reflections, contemplation, because there is enough peace, and dynamism. One could say that the Black Period album is an ambient that dives into post-rock and emerges in neoclassicism Ц in an arbitrary order. Or one could say that the stratification of spaces..

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


Brevity, clarity of lines, softness of accents Ц sometimes even on the edge of being toylike. Transparent, like light shade. Add a bit of a bare nerve Ц 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.

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


...a mysterious story of Stanislaus Perfecki Ц 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..

Tik Tu. Shuma. /digi-pack/.


It is hard to believe that all this amazing lace was created by just three individuals Ц 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 Ц this is a rare case of it, definitely.

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 Ц hope requires memory and time Ц and here all the space is occupied with.. attention? I do not even know Ц you stay in this space while the album plays on, and then this space just plays on in you..

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


On the one hand Ц Mokh (Oleg Hnativ) has read authentic magic Huzul texts, sayings against evil forces. And their power can hardly be ignored. On the other hand Ц 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...

Yuri Andrukhovych, Karbido. 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 Ц he just had a lot of fun in the process. But sells-out during the whole "cinnamon" tour Ц 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...

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 Ц here, we bow to trip-hop Ц but. Some guitar motions, as well as the trumpet, in spite of such "twilightness" of sounding Ц fill the music with extra fragile light, do not let it submerge irreversibly into the dark depths.

2sleepy. Art Fraud. /digi-pack/


Surprisingly soft, lyric, even tender rock music wrapped in multiplayer electronic diaper... Absolute correspondence to the name of the group. So delicate balancing on that rim of a dream, where colors are childishly bright, but contours have already been washed out with lolling of quiet waves Ц it charms from the first second, as if petals of a night campfire. One feels it as rough warmth of a knitted sweater...

Dollheads. Dollheads.


...it seems that nothing of the kind has yet been released on Ukrainian alternative scene. At that, this refers to alternative of the two directions at once Ц both rock- and electronic one. Because, as known, Dollheads actively engage in their music electronic devices Ц in the end, this is heard distinctly. But at that the group plays Ц live.
