Victor Morozov, Batiar-band "Halychyna". Sertse batjara. (A Batiar's Heart)
Eight years have passed since the release of "Only in Lviv" – the previous joint work by Victor Morozov and Batiar-Band "Halychyna". Therefore, "A Batiar's Heart" is a piece of news that is not only nice but also long-awaited. However, if news is really interesting, it is worth waiting for – well, and Victor Morozov, actually, can be regarded as a sort of a guarantor of that it will be interesting indeed. By the way, pay attention: while the previous album consisted exclusively of old batiar songs composed at the beginning of the past century, "A Batiar's Heart" is already author's material, styling. And truly brilliant styling. The overwhelming majority of texts for the album were composed by Andriy Panchyshyn – but they sound as if one hundred years ago they could really be heard in Lviv streets. Definitely, we should thank "Halychyna" and Morozov (he is not only the performer, but also the key author of the music on the album) – the atmosphere of former times is reflected in an extraordinarily bright, well-aimed, sincere way. Nothing to add, you listen – and you just believe! Moreover: without regard to the romantic haze, you feel some authentic threatening beauty looming through these songs. In the end, batiars were far from angels, and they rhymed love with rove far not only in lyrics... Thus, I strongly recommend you to listen to this. "A Batiar's Heart", I believe, will make you not only weep and laugh (literally, by the way) but also – think...
The publication contains a 20-page booklet with texts and other information.

HraBlya band, Antin Mukharsky. 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...

Vasyl Hontarsky, Yuriy "HoboT" Galinin. Vasya and Hobot. (premium release, digi-pack).


Vasyl Hontarsky's solo album (premium release, digi-pack). Acoustic variations on the theme of the most famous pieces by "Vasya Club", folk songs and rowdy cover versions of hits by Eric Clapton, Tom Waits and Goran Bregovic.

Orest Lyuty. A ya – ne moskal. /digi-pack/. (And I am not a Moscovite)


..Anyway, the album "And I am not a Moscovite" convincingly illustrates how cleverly one can make fun of the Soviet influence and chanson (in the post-Soviet sense) miasma in the modern Ukrainian culture without resorting to brutal methods. Well, almost without it. Only by irony and, above all, self-irony – sometimes quite tough...

Gogol Bordello. Multi Kontra Culti vs. Irony.


During the recent years, Gogol Bordello has become, probably, one of the most popular eccentric bands in the entire world – while it plays not quite, so to speak, commercial music. Though, on the other hand, in these songs so much is mixed that the definition "gipsy ska-punk" does not convey even a half of it...

Vasyl Hontarsky, Yuriy "HoboT" Galinin. Vasya and Hobot.


The album is really queer, its style is "for one’s soul". To the question "for whose one?" we answer: a hippie’s one, whatever this word may mean. It is a man's dialogue with the air, when the woman has already left, but her image is still melting in the mirror. And you are in the middle of all that – what other explanations do you need? There is nothing. A hangover philosophical song.
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Karbido, Yuri Andrukhovych. 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 – he just had a lot of fun in the process. But sells-out during the whole "cinnamon" tour – 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...
Domestic price: 249.21UAH, International price: $36.92USD

Karbido, Yuri Andrukhovych. Samohon. (special Ukrainian release).


Finally, we have it – the Ukrainian release of the joint album by Yuri Andruhovych and the researchers into psycho-music from Karbido group saw the light of the day. A strange mixture of ethno-jazz, dub, avant-garde rock and ironically sarcastic melodic recitals – no, this list of ingredients, in actual fact, explains nothing. One should listen to it – and this, at least, should once be heard. Better – more than once.
Domestic price: 201.96UAH, International price: $29.92USD

Yuri Zdorenko & Hash. Na zdorov'ja! /digi-pack/. (To Health!)


Yuriy Zdorenko & Hash spin up – and in quite an unexpected way. Actually, what could seem after release of their debut mini-album? That Zdorenko decided to cook another poignantly hot dish based on the recipe tested in the "Borsch" project. And what actually turns out?
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Victor Morozov, Batiar-band "Halychyna". Til'ku vi L'vovi. L'vivs'ki batjars'ki pisni. (Only in Lviv)


This disc creates its own specific atmosphere, tender and impudent at the same time, it smells the streets, along which maidens defile dressed in clothes you can not see in our time. You know, this is a very pleasant feeling – the feeling of presence which appears while listening to this disc.
