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.

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...

Oleh Skrypka, Les Podervyansky. Humanists.


The performance concert by Oleh Skrypka and Les Podervyansky "Humanists" took place in December, 2000. Actually, 10 years after, in January, 2011, the performance got a new life... This recording is the case of an exclusive creative collaboration of two personalities significant for the modern Ukrainian culture.

Oleh Skrypka, Les Podervyansky. Humanists. (premium release). /digi-pack/


This recording is the case of an exclusive creative collaboration of two personalities significant for the modern Ukrainian culture. It is a pity that Les Podervyansky does not sing here. Instead, Oleh Skrypka actively participates in duping the plays, and this creates an additional comic and grotesque effect.. Published for the first time.

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.

Yuri Andrukhovych, Karbido. 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...

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..."

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...

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.

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...

Vasyl Hontarsky, Vasya Club. 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.

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...

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..
