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

Vasja is, actually, Vasyl Gontars'ky, the leader of "Vasja Club". Hobot is one of the most picturesque Kyiv contrabass players. I had heard how wonderfully he played twists and boogie-woogie and was positively surprised having seen him in this strange project. There are also two more nice and known musicians, but they are not indicated in the name. So. The album is really queer, its style is "for ones soul". To the question "for whose one?" we answer: a hippies one, whatever this word may mean. Nobody here strikes a pose, tries to prove anything to anyone, shaves or avoids tabooed lexis (attention!). Something different takes place here a "session" for the sake of "session", even though in the empty "flat", and a bottle of beer as the closest friend. At least, it is within the reach. It is a man's dialogue with the air, when the woman has already left, but her image is still melting in the mirror. The day has nevertheless begun you are surprised but alive and somehow even healthy, at least, so it seems. It snows in the northern window, the western one is wet with fog, the southern one has burned down. And you are in the middle of all that what other explanations do you need? There is nothing. A hangover philosophical song.

Anton Yozhyk Leyba (Hedgehog)

Note! This album is also released as a vinyl LP.

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...

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.

Victor Morozov, Batiar-band "Halychyna". Batiar Blues. /digi-pack/.


"Batiar Blues" is, perhaps, the most striking album of this series adults, respected professionals, play as if children here. Only, unlike children, they have behind their backs 40 years of very diverse experience and no fear to look funny. And this is true power..

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...

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.

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...

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?

Luiku. Yeher Mayster. /digi-pack/. (Yeger Meister)


Luiku is rather ironic dance music with a very pronounced folk component, the accelerated Ukrainian gypsy romance supplemented with Turkish, Polish, Romanian, and Hungarian lines. The music, besides being catchy (although there are also a couple of relaxed pieces), is also very, so to speak, convex.

Braty Hadyukiny. Made in Ukraine. /digi-pack/.


...this is about us. The ordinary people in the changing times, when it is both scary, and funny, and one wants to go faster, while one needs to move carefully. Because nobody but us will live through these times for u... That's how it is put in the song "Play!": "Dad taught me my dad, the last Jedi play, play on your drymba, play the song of joy..."
Domestic price: 155.65UAH, International price: $14.28USD

Los Colorados. Shmiraky. /digi-pack/. (Scamps)


Los Colorados is a striking example of how a joke may turn into something more. In any case, hardly anyone expected that their deliberately amateur video will result in millions of hits on the web. And, as a consequence, in invitations to perform in Germany, where within the context of this unexpected wave their debut album was released...

An anniversary (10 years since the release) re-issue on CD of one of the most prominent Ukrainian rock albums. For the sake of this release, complete re-mastering of the material from the original master tapes was performed and the original author design was restored.

Rura. Bdzhilka Mayja. (Maya Bee)


...it is possible to interfuse banter with sorrow and not to be too keen on how that will be perceived from the positions of commercial success. It is possible to laugh loudly at pop-hits, and then to suddenly play such heartfelt lyrical poetry that even words will not be really needed and to only care that both the first and the second things were done sincerely.
Domestic price: 122.95UAH, International price: $11.28USD

TIK. tyKhYJ. (Silent)


Consequently, the crisis of the second album has pass successfully and was it ever there? The first thing that strikes one's eye is the change of the general mood. The first disc was saturated with positive, smiling but sadness. The second disc is quite a different thing. "You love brandy cola, and I love wine, and it means that we won't be together anyway"...

Vasyl Hontarsky. Akustyka. (Acoustics)


This is simultaneously the simplest and the most complicated format there is nothing but the guitar and voice, and you either sound or you'd better not even start... "Acoustics" is the last real album by Vasyl Gontarsky, the fifth one. No others will follow. If everyone left behind so fair traces the land would shine under our feet...
Domestic price: 155.65UAH, International price: $14.28USD

Vasya Club, Vasyl Hontarsky. Ruskyy albom. (Russian Album)


Strange as it may appear, but youll find a good deal of novelties on the disc the songs that have never been released before. And personally I consider them to be just wonderful songs. Anyway, the famous works also warm the heart. This is like it often happens with cronies whose close relationship doesnt depend on circumstances. All this makes not a compilation but an album of a full value with incredibly crystal, lyrical and high spirits.
Domestic price: 122.95UAH, International price: $11.28USD

Liapis Trubetskoy. Zolotye jajcy. (Golden eggs)


Their music is the mixture of everything that gets into your hands and is reinforced by a powerful and skilful spiritual section. You can find practically everything here, starting with grunge and ending with raggy, and all that is fully stuffed with Byelorussian outlook and sense of humour...
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

TIK. LiteraDura.


"TIK" is a group that right from the first song conquered admiration of the entire country. At that, it was not a protest march or hymn, no heroic lyricism, pathos, aplomb no. They simply quietly, with a somewhat sad smile began singing about "...weird creatures without brain and without roots" and this was enough..
Domestic price: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Vasyl Hontarsky, Vasya Club. Konokrad. (Horse Thief)


Despite the banal laws of showbiz, despite the business as it is "Vasja Club", that is Vasyl Gontarsky, already releases his third album. And already for the third time pleasantly surprises with sincerity and freshness, which can be found with far not every young guy even and this fellow is adult already...
