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. Basically, this is art rock – if the word "art" implies the realization that Babkin is not only a musician, but also an actor. And it is not about masks, but – about the ability to convey the content as authentically as possible. Actually, regarding the content – Babkin's lyrics, as always, deserve special attention. This time, there are no obvious social issues – instead, there is some versatility, in which one can see reflections of any degree of depth. By and large, this is an album about love – but it is really multifaceted, so there will, probably, be no unambiguous interpretations. And why would we need them – we do not live in a two-dimensional space. Live? When faced with such sincere songs, once again it occurs that life is far not about what the media "opinion makers" usually introduce to us... And another thing: if you know that the album "Sergevna" is dedicated to Veselyna – Serhiy's daughter – you listen and perceive it in a very special way..

Sheetel. Mr. White. /special edition, digi-pack/.


..it sounds as if somewhere at a rather strange intersection of indie/alt-rock/dark cabaret, without going into any of these territories explicitly, fully. And this is how, one step away from the clear line, they are forming their own space: broken, stormy and muffled, painfully sharp and – seemingly conscious of its mirages.

Blooms Corda. Fog Lavender. /mini-pack/.


A good melodic and rhythmic foundation, several invited musicians and more than a dozen instruments, warm weirdness, a sense of intimacy of what is happening – Danylo managed to preserve and combine fragile tenderness of the space, unobtrusive confidence of the instrumental lines, the somewhat notched singing..

Postman. Everything Is New. /digi-pack/.


Postman reserves the right, being a participant of certain events, to step into the shadow behind the light boards and become an observer. A light man. The one who asks: why? at what price? what for? The one who answers: in the turmoil of trifle things, in random intersections, in uncertain movements of our hearts we remain ourselves..

Postman. Being High. /mini-pack/.


..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.

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..

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..

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.

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?

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.

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.

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: 194.60UAH, International price: $13.90USD

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.

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: 256.20UAH, International price: $18.30USD

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..

Dymna Sumish. V krajini iljuziy. /digi-pack/. (In the Country of Illusions)


How many people, having first heard the songs "In the Country of Illusions" and "No", decided that they should certainly buy-listen to the new disc by Dymna Sumish? I think, more than one thousand. How many of them will be disappointed having bought-listened to this disc? I think, none – Dymna Sumish, sure, is one of the most interesting groups on the Ukrainian independent scene.

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: 292.60UAH, International price: $20.90USD

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.
