The Ukrainians. Respublika.

The music of this album may be defined as folk-punk, though such definition doesn’t have pretensions of being complete. The overwhelming majority of songs are Ukrainian folk songs known to everybody. But you may never have heard them being performed in such a manner so far. If we mix this cuisine up on hard and forceful guitar reefs, as well as on violent drums, we will get a cocktail that blows up right before our eyes. To be exact, it blows up between our ears. Everything that remains of the head cannot be restored again, and let’s forget about it. In order to obtain a new vision, one should reject the old one – this music easily ruins stereotypes and at the same time proposes new ones. These are the doors outwards, which you close behind yourself – and it depends only on you what you will see outside after that. To my mind, there are a lot of interesting things there.

Brutto. Roki. /digi-pack/. (Rocky)


Life is hard – and these songs will not help one escape. On the contrary – they will help one to face it standing straight, looking it in the eye. "Fight for her", Zhadan wrote once. She is – the land, the destiny, the blood, the freedom.. The love, sure – with all the abysses and apexes of its meanings. The album sounds like a clenched fist, until the last track..
Domestic price: 132.24UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Gogol Bordello. Pura Vida Conspiracy.


...cocktails by Gogol Bordello become more transparent. Not so much quiet, rather – more considered, balanced internally. It seems to be a carnival of weird masks, behind which the simple idea lurks: no one makes you agree to everyday mediocrity. You can do it – otherwise.
Domestic price: 135.66UAH, International price: $14.28USD

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: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Sobaki V Kosmose, Serhiy Zhadan. Zbroya proletariatu. /digi-pack/. (Weapons of the Proletariat)


The new album includes more stuff. Dirty guitars and rough rhythms – decorated with shiny ribbons of the cosmo-disco. Poems by Zhadan – an uncompromising weapon to kill worms in the brain, and at the same time – a clear enough ideology for anyone who does not agree to live as suggested by the contemporary System.
Domestic price: 217.74UAH, International price: $22.92USD

Vopli Vidopliassova. Krayina mriy. /anniversary release, digi-pack/. (Land of Dreams)


Any music, if there is place for ethnic motives, moods in it – changes forever, and changes the listener. For the best. Because such music acquires new dimensions of depth, it is connected with the important and irreplaceable space – in which the root of culture and worldview of that or another people lives.
Domestic price: 135.66UAH, International price: $14.28USD

Vopli Vidopliassova. Khvyli Amura. /anniversary release, digi-pack/. (Waves of Amour)


It is hard to say for sure why is it so popular: either by their energetic music or by their nice lyrics or just because of charismatic Oleh Skrypka. But they are super popular - this is for sure. This album is next step forward.
Domestic price: 135.66UAH, International price: $14.28USD

Vopli Vidopliassova. Buly den'ky. /anniversary release, digi-pack/. (There were those days)


This album as if involves time into reverse movement. It represents qualitative Ukrainian alternative rock-and-roll – such as it would be 20 years ago if ideology, finance, quality of equipment, etc. allowed that. It reminds all ideas and feeling that were important – and lets the past free, says goodbye to it.
Domestic price: 135.66UAH, International price: $14.28USD

Vopli Vidopliassova. Abo Abo. /anniversary release, digi-pack/.


The album "Abo Abo" is a concert record made in France at the "Eurockeens de Belfort" festival as long ago as in June, 1991. But not only. This is also the first compact disc of the group – previous records were published on cassettes. In addition, it was released abroad – a rare bird for those times, we should say.
Domestic price: 135.66UAH, International price: $14.28USD

Serhiy Zhadan, Sobaki V Kosmose. Sportyvnyy klub armiji. (Sports Club of the Army)


...Consequently, we have in one pot epatage, sarcasm, philosophy, lyric poetry, ska, reggae, punk, folk singing and just drive – both in words and in music. And if you prefer not too trimmed art – this is the album that should not miss your attention.
Domestic price: 113.24UAH, International price: $11.92USD

The Yurcash. Menuets. Tjul‘pany V TselaFani. (Menuets. Tulips In CellaPhane)


Yurcash really was not going to disappoint all those whom he managed to surprise so positively. The second album is also a sort of a "hodgepodge" of different, almost incompatible styles and moods, from hardcore to acid chanson. Though, there are now fewer "heavy" music remarks – however, it does not seem to be a severe loss. And the banter in the texts – has become more varied, diversified.
Domestic price: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Vinky. Ruta-M'yata.


...the first album is a convincing evidence of the fact that this group is capable of making experiments deeply and finely through mixing ethno, acid, trance, rock and fly-agaric and at the same time remembering the taste. Still, even the vocal singing deserves your attention, to say nothing about the rest of music...
Domestic price: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Vopli Vidopliassova. Buly den'ky. (There were those days)


The group "VV" has recently celebrated the 20th anniversary of their creative life – and have released a new album. The age is respectable not only for a group – even for a person it is already quite a lot. One can – and should – sum up some results and draw conclusions. Actually, the album "There Were the Days" has become this kind of summarizing.
