Andrey Kiritchenko, Ojra. A Tangle Of Mokosha.
I first heard "Ojra + Andrey Kiritchenko", it seems, in 2008, at Gogol Fest in Kyiv, thus, let me note that the album notably differs from what sounded there and then. Moreover: if it did not differ it would not exist at all. This is a principally important moment. On that evening, Andriy said that in Ukrainian folk songs there was surprisingly a lot of cruelty, death and things of that kind (just such songs were played at the concert). Beautiful musically but this does not rid them of the negative "lining". Therefore, the album (recording of which was already planned then) would happen only provided light colors definitely prevail in it. And thus I'm pleased to say: light colors do prevail in this album definitely! Thanks to all the musicians, while the major persons guilty of this are Halyna Breslavets and Andriy Kyrychenko) First, Halyna sings so that even sad songs which, however, do not constitute the majority sound transparent, without deep shades and black-and-white make-up. Halyna not just sings she works magic, submerges.. it is real meditation, and very beautiful one.. While Andriy he always works with the sound space neatly, with care. And in this album his tolerance, delicate nature are revealed very brightly not a single superfluous motion, tone, hint... The space remains clear decorations appear fragmentary and absolutely unobtrusive. They afterwards form their own layer of fragile patterns but the space all the same remains clear and transparent, therefore the general picture acquires depth, immensity, extraordinarily lots of warm, light, heartfelt overtones sound in it... In the end, one just does not want to turn off this disc)

Kotra, Zavoloka, Dunaewsky69. Kallista. /eco-pack/.


"Kallista" is an hour-long journey through contrasts. Sometimes muted, soft, sometimes quite sharp. But, in any case, these are deep, voluminous sound miniatures, in which there is space for meditative immersion, and for purely urban drive, and for futuristic fantasies, and for essentially shamanistic experiences.

CAT, Alla Zagaykevych. Zymovy sat. /digi-pack/. (Winter CArTen)


This world is separated from others with only a thin veil the veil of our perceptions. And such albums as "Zymovy sat" they make this veil visible, tangible. Re-present it. Thus, they make it possible to move it apart...

Viktor Pushkar, Serhiy Okhrimchuk. [chomub.ini].


This space lives at the level of such free, indirect associations that it seems almost impossible. It is quite possible that, when listening to this music, you will finally learn to dance architecture...

Viktor Pushkar, Serhiy Okhrimchuk. [chomub.ini]. Court music as it could [not] happen.


Is it really so [im]possible to imagine a Court, where the could [not] be exactly this court music? One of answer options [chomub.ini]. ..It is time to start producing one's own blocks for the game, or to radically change the methods of their combining. It is time to search for harmony in combination of the Infrared with the Ultraviolet, the Hard with the Fluffy, or the Wavy with the Rectilinear...

Kotra, Zavoloka. Wag the Swing. /eco-pack/.


It thrills. Cool and warm, tart and sweet, quiet and agitated that is sounding of this disc. Joyful and straightforward children in love whose feelings are reciprocal can be like that. As to my taste, of course because who know...

The Moglass, Vanessa Arn, Tom Carter. Snake-tongued Swallow-tailed...


And due to active use of live instruments, this music is called post-rock. And due to how exactly and in what combinations they are used it is named ambient and psycho-folk. It is a live, warm matter, and it bears a long, tangible, contemplative feeling of coziness, growth, flow...

Francisco Lopez, Andrey Kiritchenko. Mavje.


...his space does not wait till you make the first step it shrouds you at once, leads, rolls, pushes unnoticeably warm air over tarred railroad ties and you do not dive and do not enter, but at once... you stay here so as if it has been and is and will be so naturally you are there, you find, you know...

The Moglass, Andrey Kiritchenko, Anla Courtis. Courtis/Kiritchenko/Moglass.


The one who accumulated spaces for one track plays the guitar for another track, and from the others' sounding creates something third in the fourth track they switch places, roles, world... There arises a strange feeling you seem to see familiar things, but in unfamiliar combinations, at unexpected angles.

Critical. Graphorrhea.


..having paid attention to the black-and-white design of the cover, also pay attention to that actually it is saturated with delicate patterns of various degrees of complication. Just as the content of the disc it is only at first sight that it seems rather simple... However, gradually almost unnoticeably but persistently the number of lines, layers, bands, aftersounds, parallel and independent steps grows.
