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

This disc contains the songs performed by Victor Morozov who is recognized not only in Lviv. You could have heard the fruits of his cooperation with the group Mertvyi Piven recorded at the disc "Afrodyziyaky" ("Aphrodisiaks"). As for this album, here he is performing together with the batyar-band Halychyna, and they are performing Lviv "batyarski" songs. The disc has a nice cover which presents you not only the lyrics of the songs, but also some details from the history of their performance – and something from the life of Lviv and its suburbs at the beginning of the 20th century. It is exactly from there that the songs of Lviv playboys, who would have been called span in Kyiv, have come to us. 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. To be present in this time, in this wind, amongst the city poetry – there is something in it, which makes you feel warm. Even if you have never been to Lviv.

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...

Yuriy "HoboT" Galinin, Vasyl Hontarsky. 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.

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...

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.

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?

Victor Morozov, Batiar-band "Halychyna". Sertse batjara. (A Batiar's Heart)

..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 lyric...
