Postman. Being High. /mini-pack/.
Postman is a solo project by Konstyantyn Poshtar of "5 Vymir" band. This is an acoustic project: the voice, the guitar, a strictly minimalistic set of auxiliary instruments. In musical terms, this is clearly stemming from what Bob Dylan, Simon & Garfunkel, Donovan, and others were doing some long time ago. Stemming from but not copying, it is just that in Postman's songs there are the same ease and the content that make it possible to anticipate the extra depth, without any prejudice to the beauty. And it's not just about the melodies and the nuances of intonations. These are good texts that are interesting to listen to and that one wants to go back to. For this is what happens complicated (and not that much) things described with spot-on words may turn into universal symbols, metaphors of larger, wider phenomena and processes. The love of this world is multifaceted. Incidentally, this disc includes EP "Baly i Korabli" as a bonus unlike "Being High", it is a completely Ukrainian-language piece. Recorded in full, including the song "Kyiv Streets" and this, you know, is a song for which they will keep thanking Konstyantyn for years ahead and, most likely, not only Kyivites...

5 Vymir. Novi imena. /mini-pack/. (New Names)


..this is a marker album and thoughtful preparation for the next step at least, it sounds like that. Indie rock in Ukrainian is still not the mainstream in Ukraine, but 5 Vymir is just one of those bands that are able to change this situation for the better there is enough musical and literary sense, charismatic manifestations, and they are not lacking ambitions. Let them just not stop..
Domestic price: 133.85UAH, International price: $12.28USD

5 Vymir. Mistolinia. /super-pack/. (CityLine)


The first studio album by 5 Vymir is like a rough mixture of the psychedelia of the 70s and the Brit pop of the 90s, inspired by our local dreamlike lifestyle, but flavored with a green, bouncy charge of sound (and it's not about sounding) insolence. It turns out to be very atmospheric..
Domestic price: 144.75UAH, International price: $13.28USD

The Elephants. Colors. /premium, eco-pack/.


Brevity, clarity of lines, softness of accents sometimes even on the edge of being toylike. Transparent, like light shade. Add a bit of a bare nerve and this would be "disruption" music, but for the time being The Elephants offer indie-pop-tronic with elements of fabulousness. And they do it so that one wants to believe it.
Domestic price: 133.85UAH, International price: $12.28USD

Vivienne Mort. Rosa. (EP). /mini-pack/.


..this music it saturated with some pristine but conscious magic. Vivienne Mort do not force themselves to release long-plays but you would never say that their releases are unfinished, incomplete. On the contrary these are really holistic, non-accidental expressions. Concise, yes but is it a vice?
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Sergey Babkin. #neubyvai. /digi-pack/. (#donotkill)


It's nice when a musician has something to say. The value of what is said is not determined by its amount, of course, but more than 70 minutes of high-quality music that's still good. And Babkin produces quality both in his music, in lyrics.
Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Pianoboy. Take Off. /premium edition, digi-pack/.


..intertwining love for the music of the 1960-70s, and the ability to speak modern, at the intersection of styles. With the taste for styling tricks to speak one's own language. Actually, Pianoboy manages to combine in one bottle magnitude and seclusion, intimacy.
Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Atomic Simao. Sphyro. /digi-pack/.


The album "Sphyro" is rock, but with nuances in the domain of psychedelia, tending towards acid jazz, specific atmospherity, when you breathe in deeply, and the feeling is as if the calorie content of this air exceeds the limit...
Domestic price: 122.95UAH, International price: $11.28USD

YouCrane. Again. /digi-pack/.


The second album by YouCrane clearly shows that the band has found its own voice, and that this voice is easy distinguished from the crowd. A certain very nice mix of romance with a touch of the 1980s, latent lo-fi-aesthetics, healthy carelessness in intonations all of those create a new fairy tale atmosphere..
Domestic price: 122.95UAH, International price: $11.28USD

Pianoboy. Ne prekraschay mechtat. /digi-pack/. (Don't Stop Dreaming)


Even from the perspective of the style, there is quite a rich mix of everything from hip-hop to dub and electronic music, a multitude of bright elements, elegantly and smoothly adjusted to each other and rather tastily flavoured with laconic fortepiano flashes. Plus, probably even more than last year, texts are important here.
Domestic price: 253.75UAH, International price: $23.28USD

YouCrane. Koly my budem znajomi. /digi-pack/. (When We are Acquainted)


At first glance YouCrane just perform quality pop-rock with a variety of electronic admixtures. But, as known, the devil is in detail to which the band definitely pays a lot of attention. Therefore, that results in a rather peculiar and interesting atmosphere, in which the positive charge does not block the sun for indie moods.
Domestic price: 122.95UAH, International price: $11.28USD

Sergey Babkin. Sergevna. /digi-pack/.


A powerful work as expected. In terms of the music colorful, with interesting arrangements, careful consideration of each track. No "pass-through" pieces one can hear that. Voluminous, "visual" music it feels like you can touch it with your fingertips, taste, and inhale its aroma...
Domestic price: 133.85UAH, International price: $12.28USD

Voanerges. Tsilyuschy Rock Drevnyoho Kyeva. (The Healing Rock of the Ancient Kyiv)


...this music contains so much energy that it definitely leaves no room for indifference. Somewhere, it mesmerizes with art-rock passages, somewhere it shamans with dusky rhythms, somewhere adds a plenty of folklore patterns. And we should specifically mention that apart from the Ukrainian language, the Old Slavonic one sounds here.
Domestic price: 253.75UAH, International price: $23.28USD

Okean Elzy. Supersymmetry. /re-edition, digi-pack/.


Pay attention at the title of the album it displays its content and its essence very well. The composition of the album and every of its songs, as well as their forms and content, strive to logical harmonicity, adjustedness of every musical move, every note.
Domestic price: 122.95UAH, International price: $11.28USD

DOK. DVA. /digi-pack/.


"Brutal pop power" so they call it. But there is a great temptation to also add other words: post-rock plus acoustic acid jazz with trip hop education something like this, probably. However, all these names do not contradict each other because music like this as it is means going beyond the limits of specific style...
Domestic price: 155.65UAH, International price: $14.28USD

Voanerges. Boogaj Boogie.


This is already the third official studio album by "Voanerges" and it seems to be the most complete, fully mature one. The fully jazz solos, trip-hop, funk trends, the archaic manner of singing, ska moods all of that is here. However, these things are performed precisely therefore, they are perceived exactly as beautiful decorations, not as a way of showing off.
Domestic price: 166.55UAH, International price: $15.28USD

Skryabin. Striptease +. (re-edition). /digi-pack/.


...the songs lyrics gain even more weight this is an interesting and significant element, indeed. In them, skepticism, sarcasm, unwillingness to defend human weaknesses are combined and the ability to feel true devotion to what you mock at. And on the intersection of these vectors, there unexpectedly appears some unusual, cool and tart, but warmth.
Domestic price: 122.95UAH, International price: $11.28USD

Viy. Yshov ja nebom. /digi-pack/. (I Was Walking in the Sky)


...these musicians have always preferred travels deep inside. This time as well if one wishes, he/she can discern in the fresh songs by the group political pamphlets and just a poignant evaluation of our historical nowadays. And if one does not it is quite possible to let it go, because their symbolism is obviously deeper than the waves of our routine..
Domestic price: 133.85UAH, International price: $12.28USD

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: 112.05UAH, International price: $10.28USD

Johnny Bardo. Basket Case. /digi-pack/


Johnny Bardo is a solo project, a sort of an alter ego of Louis Franck, the leader of Esthetic Education. A bright, interesting project no doubt. You should listen to one or two tracks only to make sure: everything is made in a talented, delicious, high-quality way. The project found its realization after Louis' return from a trip to India..
Domestic price: 253.75UAH, International price: $23.28USD

Esthetic Education. Face Reading. /digi-pack/


The cultivation of taste must simply be carried out - it must continue, and it must be carried out not in a separate point of space or in the framework of a certain musical style or trend.
