Alibi. Folk. /digi-pack/.
In this work, the duo "Alibi" changes radically – everything you have heard performed by it earlier does not intersect with the new album in any way. It seems that this is a serious step forward - and one can only regret that the girls did not do it before. Because they've succeeded – clearly, efficiently and, ultimately, just well. First, there is a good selection of songs – both in the mood and the degree of "triteness". Second – lots of live instruments that a bunch of really cool musicians play. Third – the ability to arrange an experiment in a tasty, bright, sometimes quite unexpected way. And here one should separately mention the following sparkle: arrangements of this album very relevantly intertwine Ukrainian melodies with folk tunes of other nations. The palette is very broad – from klezmer and to gospel – and that, you know, positively impresses. Definitely – "Alibi" grows over itself, and grows in an interesting way.

Astarta. Astarta/Edwin. /digi-pack/.


Cooperation of Astarta (a side project by Eduard Prystupa) with Colin Edwin (Porcupine Tree bass-player) is just an example of such quality implementation of ideas, when first you do not even try to understand what the essence is, but just listen. Listen carefully, because it is delicious.

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.

Pavlo Tabakov. Rizdvo dlja dvokh. (Christmas for Two)


Careful attitude to derivative material, interesting arrangements, general saturation of the musical component with various optional but so appropriate decorations – all of that is here. And all of that makes the album "Christmas for Two", maybe, one of the best pop-albums devoted to the theme of Christmas during the several recent years.

Ruslana. Wild Energy.


"Amazon" became the messenger of changes – though interesting but still a test of forces, reconnaissance of other territories. Now this is obvious, because "Wild Energy", in its turn, is a weighty result of those very deep quality transformations. The disc should, obviously, become the head stone in creating the image of a new Ruslana – and it has everything necessary for that. This is really another quality of music, and not only music.

Ruslana. Amazonka. (Amazon)


Well, you may be confident – she will surprise you. First – with that she has finally managed to separate herself with a significant distance from the Ruslana who was glorified by Wild Dances. Sure, that was far not easy – sure, that was vitally necessary. And, second, – she will no doubt surprise you with HOW she has changed...

Innesa. Gerdan. New sound of ethnic Ukraine.

Molotov 20, Marta Shpak. Enlighted. The modern treatment of traditional Ukrainian folk music. /digi-pack/


Rhythms of "Osyayni" bewitch with their soft, silent pace. Marta, in her turn, also obviously appears here not by chance. Her voice has a very interesting feature – it somehow inexplicably combines in itself the past and the future. It seems to be native – and somehow not from here.

Wedding Songs. The modern treatment of traditional Ukrainian folkmusik. /digi-pack/


As for me, the wedding with such musical background could attract attention not only with merry mood but with extraordinary uniqueness as well. Trust me that such kind of the performance both with difficult rhythms of modern electronic music is something amazing.

Max Chorny. The New Sound of Ethnic Ukraine.


In spite of the fact that this album is an electronic one, personally I associate it with my childhood, though being a child I knew nothing about electronic music. May be, the explanation is that the album contains the melodies, which I heard by radio in those times.

Потрясающее необычное новое прочтение (точнее даже, исполнение) украинского фолка! Приятное многоголосие, красивые девушки, яркие костюмы.
Особенно удивили в рок-обработке песни "Веснянки" и "На вулиці скрипка грає".
С удовольствием сходил бы на их концерт, но кажется это останется мечтой...
