Pravytsya. Kryvy tanets. /digi-pack/. (Crooked Dance)
The leaders of "Pravytsya" band, in parallel, teach at a children's folk studio. Therefore, the debut album "Crooked Dance" illustrates what kind of attitude to the tradition they teach to children if in short, that is: creative. Although folklore modernization is not a new phenomenon, so what matters here is not only the fact, but also the nuances. And the nuances are that "Pravytsya" do not limit themselves to a certain style in their interpretations one can hear jazz, blues, soul, rock aspects, even the Ukrainian country music in the Irish style. Without unnecessary extravagance, but fancy and, at the same time, I would say, very cautious. Maybe, this is a demonstration of reverence for the material after all, these songs are several hundred years old each, there is certain magic. Pravytsya tries not to shatter the magic, and that results in a living fabric, not dead accessories. Here I'd do curtsy to the bass and drums, plus among the additional instruments one does not really hear any to spare but. For me personally some parts on keyboards were a small feast of atmospherity a fait accompli. No less than the girls' singing. A good debut and there is reserve space for a step forward. And let it be.

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?

Hycz Orkestr. Pid markoyu Ivana Yakovycha. /premium, mini-book+CD/. (Under the Brand of Ivan Yakovych)


..pleasant to hold, pleasant to present. And it should be presented, because it is, after all, a really cool, outstanding, ingenious album. Not just an album. A small chest of treasures. Especially with the recognizable color tones characteristic of a particular nation but also with the HYCh's skill of creatively designing the themes so that to blur boundaries, to reach the universal..

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: 235.71UAH, International price: $34.92USD

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: 120.96UAH, International price: $17.92USD

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: 107.46UAH, International price: $15.92USD

Vasya Club, Vasyl Hontarsky. Hipan. (anniversary edition). /digi-pack/. (Hipster)


An anniversary (10 years since the release) re-issue on CD of one of the most prominent Ukrainian rock albums. For the sake of this release, complete re-mastering of the material from the original master tapes was performed and the original author design was restored.
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

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.

TaRuta. Narodzheni v LYUBOVI. /digi-pack/. (Born in LOVE)


11 tracks, but they are somehow so saturated and diverse that it may seem there are twice more of them. First, there are both author's and folk texts there and some author's ones really resemble folk songs, this is a compliment.. And second within one album, actually, three manners and ways of performing are mixed: skilful "folk" singing, powerful ethno-rock and the "acoustics"..
Domestic price: 93.96UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Hurt Mandrivnyh Djakiv "Vertep". VirshOspivy. /digi-pack/. (PoemSongs)


Simple and bright: the group set to music the poetry of a two dozens of the most interesting Ukrainian modern authors, a half of poems performed by the authors themselves. The project succeeded, truly, as Vertep didnt set themselves any limits in style, here, apparently, a light tint of jazz..
Domestic price: 67.16UAH, International price: $9.95USD

Propala Hramota. Honor. (Pride)


I would not like to speak here in a lot of detail about the ability to combine the green with the hot, and the fretted with the tart these specific features have acquired even more expressive outlines from the times of the debut disc. Propala Hramota boldly creates modern folklore do not be too lazy to listen to the lyrics, this is a really important decoration of every song.

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.
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Propala Hramota. Tseyvo. (Sorta)


Here it is real, serious, exact. You know, about such dicks one is both eager and reluctant to speak they bend to one's soul with their curves so that words become almost superfluous. But it is also desirable to keep quiet about such things only eye-to-eye, in order to by all means share one's feeling, warmth, acceptance.
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Ulia Lord, Yuriy Gnatkovsky. Snizhnist'. Muzyka zymovyh svjat. (Snowiness. Music of Winter Holidays)


Yuri Gnatkovsky does something quite different, not in line with the general massive of Ukrainian pop and rock music. But yes, it is light, and bright, and beautiful, and with a taste of jazz. The taste is, actually, not weak because half of compositions of the album are based on old, known, classic jazz plays.
Domestic price: 201.96UAH, International price: $29.92USD

The Yurcash. Oj.


If there is in the world such style as benevolent, smiling punk it is exactly this case. At least, the ideological basis. Because a lot of elements are mixed in the music: clearly, punk, plus alternative, minimalism, ska, symphonic rock, blues, hardcore and all this cuisine is lavishly seasoned with folk in virtually all possible displays.
Domestic price: 201.96UAH, International price: $29.92USD

U.RA. Radiosny. (RadioDreams)


It is as if a linen string, on which times and feelings, dreams and ways are strung as if pearls. This necklace sparkles softly, and in it there are as many secrets as beauty...
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

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: 80.46UAH, International price: $11.92USD

DakhaBrakha. Shlyakh. /premium, digi-pack/. (The Road)


This album was ready in the autumn of 2016 but the musicians were in doubt, as a result they literally re-created it from scratch (the sound producer was Yuryi Hustochka). And it turned out superb, literally. Fragile like the frosty crust on morning snow, thick and fragrant like masala an album of hope, an album of surprise. Steppe blues..
Domestic price: 249.48UAH, International price: $36.96USD

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.
Domestic price: 107.46UAH, International price: $15.92USD

ShockolaD. Schedryi vechir z dobrym jazzom. /re-edition, mini-pack/. (Christmas Eve Wiz Good Jazz)


In its previous album "Pokosy", ShockolaD stepped away from jazz for an almost safe distance the key definition of the work would be "ethno-lounge". Well, and this time the group seems to have decided to remix all familiar ingredients both the ethno, and jazz, and acoustic lounge and, sure, to season it with a few new colors.
Domestic price: 120.96UAH, International price: $17.92USD

Antin Mukharsky, HraBlya band. Mama-Anarkhia. /digi-pack/. (Mama the Anarchy)


Today it is called Severe Ukrainianization. Because one can definitely say: this punk chanson does not care about tolerance, its objective is to extract to light of the day all the obsolete cliches and to pretty well trample on them. In a loud, energetic way and with such joyful rage that will make one either writhe, or eventually start laughing and recover...
Domestic price: 107.46UAH, International price: $15.92USD

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: 120.96UAH, International price: $17.92USD

TaRuta, Roman Kolyada. Nebesna sotnya / Celestial Hundred. (EP). /digi-pack/.


...it is a very brief statement. But the theme of it does not require a lot of words, after all. The main thing was to say that with dignity, and they have succeeded. Concise in the form, rich in the semantic content, and bright in the music representation.
Domestic price: 120.96UAH, International price: $17.92USD

Folknery. Korysni rechi. /digi-pack/. (Useful Things)


...while grounding on Ukrainian folk songs (not played out at all), the musicians threw into the pot a whole bunch of everything African rhythms, rock groove, ethnic and electronic instruments and they mixed that up well. The result turned out pretty hot to taste, diverse, sometimes quite unexpected.
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

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: 107.46UAH, International price: $15.92USD

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: 114.21UAH, International price: $16.92USD

ILLaria. Vilna. (2nd edition). /digi-pack/. (Free)


...the album "Free" resembles that very puzzle, an element of mosaics that was lacking in order that the picture became integral, completed. It disregarding, let me repeat it, the status of the debut one seems to sum up some results, outline the visible and known space and, thus, free space for a step forward.
Domestic price: 107.46UAH, International price: $15.92USD

TaRuta. EthnoLab. /digi-pack/.


..what is specific: the core of the Ukrainian archaic material is not hidden, not disguised as it could be and as it has already happened. On the contrary, the foundation is very expressive, while all the rest it is like pastel lighting. All those small sounds of country, rock, fusion, disco, club electronics they are as if New Year decorations on a living tree...

Folk band "Burdon". Divytsia. /digi-pack/. (The Maiden)


.. it is done by people in love. Hence the ability to see deep beauty in simple things, the ability to truly recognize affinity of different music cultures and the ability to transmit this joy of cognition, the joy of open eyes..
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

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: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Dark Patrick. Rise of the Underworld. /mini-pack/.


..Its hard to pinpoint exact influences that aptly mirror what Dark Patrick is going for here, though a safe bet would want to include nods to numerous strata of organic electronica, soundtrack ambient, world ethnotronica, psych and trip-hop. Additionally, the band claims some affiliation to the fertile soils of reggae, dub and trance...

Taras Zhytynsky, Iryna Zhytynska. 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: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Shopping Hour. Sunce Viter. /digi-pack/. (The Sun Wind)


Music contents of this release do not differ from the premium edition (apart from a hidden surprise track). Differences relate only to the external design besides, there is no booklet with the lyrics here. Hence the lower price of this edition compared to the premium one.
Domestic price: 93.96UAH, International price: $13.92USD

DakhaBrakha. Yahudky. /second release, digi-pack/.


DahaBraha is sometimes water feeding, cherishing, carrying and guarding. And sometimes the thinnest blade cutting a mustard grain in half in order to find there wind, sun, freedom. Nobody knows what exactly each of us will find here, but we are sure to find...
Domestic price: 201.96UAH, International price: $29.92USD

Mad Heads XL. UkrainSKA. /eco-pack/.


The familiar melodies will arise in an updated, sometimes unexpected form, unknown ones will have a chance not to be forgotten. Folk songs in the style of Mad Heads XL, the sound is based on modern ska-punk without clear style limits. Positive, good moods and frantic drive all the best from Mad Heads XL now in folk songs!
Domestic price: 107.46UAH, International price: $15.92USD

AtmAsfera. ..forgotten love.


On the one hand, everything is simple it contains both a rich instrumental component, and the ethno-jazz-rock mixture with the psychedelic aftertaste, and, certainly, the magic seasoning of ancient language. On the other hand everything is also simple: the soul was invested here, one can hear this and, maybe, that is why the music penetrates so deeply...
Domestic price: 120.96UAH, International price: $17.92USD

DakhaBrakha. Light. /digi-pack/.


...the content of the album in the style aspect is ambiguous but, definitely, interesting. This time to their branded ethno-chaos they have added quite a bit of very diverse elements: here you have soul, and D'n'B, and hip-hop, and art-rock, and almost jazz decorations. It appears cool.
Domestic price: 120.96UAH, International price: $17.92USD

Shopping Hour. Sunce Viter. (premium edition). /digi-pack/. (The Sun Wind)


Is the studio version different from the concert one? No doubt. Without disclosing all secrets, it is enough to say that it remains up to date to go beyond one language and one culture. In my opinion, the album represents the Ukrainian music, but the music which is done by the new generation. It is the product of the new world. The entire world.
Domestic price: 107.46UAH, International price: $15.92USD

PoliKarp. Barvinochok. /digi-pack/. (Periwinkle)


Taking the Carpathian and Polissya folklore as a basis, PoliKarp modernizes it very carefully the key melody and, actually, the manner of singing remain unchanged. While speaking about rhythmic structures and additional melody lines here already musicians release their fantasy. And that is why in their music it is possible to hear impacts of outright rock, and jazz, and funk, and dub..
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Ojra. Krokovoje koleso. /digi-pack/


First I listened to the Ojras records somewhere at the end of 90-ties, yet then it was the attempt to join the archaic and the up-to-date. The staff of the group changed several times since then, and they didnt give up to search. Of course, a variety of creative paths they made gave its outcome: one of the best, I think, neo-folk records of all Ukrainian discography of the recent years.
Domestic price: 120.96UAH, International price: $17.92USD

DakhaBrakha. Na mezhi. /digi-pack/. (On the Verge)


..here, "On the Verge" the force of water is revealed very perceptibly, magic of quite a different level appears, intended for other purposes. That is, the first works were just to burn everything old, not able to live on to clear the space. The new work must feed the new, fresh relying on those roots that did not subdue to the action of fire. That verge from which creation of the new myth..

Folk band "Burdon". Taistra Chuhaistra.


Burdon is able even from some rather whimsical, complicated rhythms, tempos and melodies to produce such a refined, well-balanced space that both people and clouds, and trees quite freely, naturally start dancing in it isn't that a miracle And nobody interferes with anyone, steps on a shade vice versa, there is mutual complementing and filling. There is mutual understanding.
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Enver Izmailov Trio. Minaret.


From ballads to dance, from folklore through art rock to meditation and jazz I would call this world fusion, as a lot of roots from the whole world have intertwined here. However, all the plays have their common root: the basis is creative re-consideration of music of Crimean Tatars and other Black Sea peoples.
Domestic price: 627.21UAH, International price: $92.92USD

Folk band "Burdon". Re: Karpatia.


The mosaic that results is as bright as deep "Burdon" once again opens the beauty of old music virtually lost for large audiences. And, at the same time, throws a tank of oxygen into the flame of modern folk let it burn brightly and not die away...

Olexa Kabanov. Dale of Muses.


The album "Valley of Muses" is, in fact, a Ukrainian project in the domain of world music at that, presumably, virtually the first one in Ukraine. It is strange and nice to hear how organically there sound together, for example, the lyre, the deeply Ukrainian violin, and the Indian percussion. Or the mandolin with the drymba why not a couple?
