Rare discs

In this section, we offer the discs that it is incredibly hard to find now – what they call rarities.

5'nizza. Piatnitsa. (Friday)


Everything these two guys achieve with the help of an acoustic guitar, light percussion and two voices is real and interesting. The honesty of youth may sometimes be harsh and rather coarse and at the same time this honesty cannot exist without tenderness, love and sensitivity
Domestic price: 251.90UAH, International price: $22.90USD

AbaNDa SHAKE. Shake.


Their songs already long ago started being interesting for Europeans, they feel well in the USA, resonate in the Internet community – one could only be jealous. Look: on MySpace portal, this project took the 2nd rate in the world song competition conducted there, and Natalie Dali also won in a competition for the title of Miss MySpace USA in December 2009.
Domestic price: 163.90UAH, International price: $14.90USD

Acoustic Quartet. USB-blues.


"USB-Blues" resembles meditation – mobile. And it is possible to really hear how the idea appears, the first step – and then it literally grows in front of your eyes, develops, blossoms. There appears the effect of presence – and, which is nice, repeated listening does not make it wash out. That is, there is a space of attention – both mutual, among the musicians, and individual attention..
Domestic price: 300.30UAH, International price: $27.30USD

Alloise. Episodes. /digi-pack/.


Sure, "Episodes" is pop music, but it is also sure to be intelligent pop-music, multi-layered, and interesting. That lives somewhere on the edge – and thus it is capable of transforming its audience. If you wish, dark pop. The promise of taking through the darkness and bringing into something new – it is there.
Domestic price: 201.30UAH, International price: $18.30USD

Alloise. Bygone. /digi-pack/.


This album has become the first solo work by Alloise after she left Gorchitza live project. As a result, it turns out adequately light and gentle, vigorous without tension, dense – and, so to say, cultured. Advanced lyrical music equally appropriate in a club, and on the scene of a large open-air.
Domestic price: 190.30UAH, International price: $17.30USD

Yuri Andrukhovych, Karbido. Absinthe. /super-pack/. (CD+DVD).


...a mysterious story of Stanislaus Perfecki – a poet, a traveler, and a performer who embarks upon a journey from Lviv to the West, and ultimately emerges in Venice, the City of Ghosts. There, he experiences a series of incredible adventures and falls in love with Ada Cytryna, his interpretress. Being forced to part with his beloved woman and unable to fulfil his special top secret mission, Perfecki vanishes..
Domestic price: 163.90UAH, International price: $14.90USD

Anniebri. Lo-Fi Feeling.


It would seem – just vocal and the piano. But this only verbally looks rather ascetic – in actual fact, a surprisingly powerful emotional current lives inside there. Actually, the way the voice and the piano sound – makes Hanna Brizhata, aka Anniebri, a truly unordinary phenomenon on our scene. Honestly speaking, I can hardly think about a single Ukrainian album resembling "Lo-Fi Feeling"...
Domestic price: 190.30UAH, International price: $17.30USD

The Anchiskhati Choir. Bahatoholossja. (live). /mini-pack/. (Polyphony)


...this album contains, apart from the rest, songs for Christmas and Easter. However, the objective of that concert program was to demonstrate to Ukrainians the widest possible palette of Georgian singing – so, festive, lyrical, feast, humorous and other songs from various regions of Georgia, instrumental melodies, as well as solo singing could be heard there.
Domestic price: 141.90UAH, International price: $12.90USD

Armada. Nezhnost. (Tenderness)

Domestic price: 207.90UAH, International price: $18.90USD

Astarta. Pershy natsionalny. /digi-pack/. (The First National)


"Astarta" band offers us ethno-pop-rock – admittedly, high-quality one. Actually, the girls themselves are capable of lots of things – and since Eduard "Dilya" Prystupa began patronizing them, they started evolving rapidly. There is enough taste for experiments, freedom in addressing various style devices is also something that there is enough of...
Domestic price: 300.30UAH, International price: $27.30USD

Maria Bayko. Spivanochky moji. (Oh, my songs)


Her singing is chamber, no matter how many listeners are present. In the best sense of the word. As when she is performing her songs, you find yourself tete-a-tete with her singing, no matter how many people there are around you. Only you. As you are listening. And she is singing.
Domestic price: 399.30UAH, International price: $36.30USD

Bervy. Ukrainian Traditional Music. Project "My Ukraine. Bervy".


First of all you should pay attention that this is Extra format disc, which means that is not only musical. It contains very substantial multimedia part. And if you are interested in the Ukrainian culture it will be a crime not to pay attention to this disc.
Domestic price: 350.90UAH, International price: $31.90USD

Children's choir "Vesnivka". Vesnivka.


Usually, you can hear it in performance of children collectives – this childishness. In this case – the singing is neither childish, nor adult. It is masterful. It is sufficient to abandon limitations of usual determinations. Sufficient to charm with purity of performance...
Domestic price: 201.30UAH, International price: $18.30USD

Vydubychi Church Chorus. Roman Hurko. Vechirnia. (Vespers)


One of obligatory conditions of spirituality as such is freedom. But – as acceptance, as gladness, as responsibility. And love. "Vespers" by Roman Gurk performed by the church choir "Vydubychi” – are you not surprised? - is a spiritual work. Both from historical, and from the aesthetic point of view.
Domestic price: 300.30UAH, International price: $27.30USD

Vydubychi Church Chorus. Sings praises to our God, sings praises! (anniversary edition).


The holy fathers thought that people were created specifically to amplify the angelic choir that sings praises to the Creator. Sacred choral singing is not only a great delight, but also an inspiring and devotional act representing heavenly harmony on earth...
Domestic price: 300.30UAH, International price: $27.30USD

Vydubychi Church Chorus. Praise the Name of the Lord.


"Vydubychi" chorus has collected the most known and popular works of Ukrainian choral art.
Domestic price: 251.90UAH, International price: $22.90USD

Vivienne Mort. Anthology. /eco-pack/. (4CDs box-set +poster)


Shortly before the release of the new LP, "Experience," Vivienne Mort reprinted at one bout all the previous releases, from the debut "Pipino Theater" to EP "Rosa". In the cardboard box, you will discover 4 mini-vinyl records (preserving the original art) + a poster with Daniella's photo.
Domestic price: 328.90UAH, International price: $29.90USD

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: 196.90UAH, International price: $17.90USD

VovaZiL'vova. Vyno, kobity, patifon. (Wine, lasses, gramophone)


...And this man is hurt and cheered exactly as you are – certainly, if it hurts and cheers you up. He simply remains himself – and it impresses much stronger than any imaginary coolness. Because one feels – it is not empty here.
Domestic price: 251.90UAH, International price: $22.90USD

Vopli Vidopliassova. Mamay.


Brand new single by VV! Disc includes three new songs, two remakes of the songs of Victor Tsoy and "Kino" group in Ukrainian and great video clip "Zoryana Osin'"
Domestic price: 102.30UAH, International price: $9.30USD

Vopli Vidopliassova. Chio Chio San. (single). /digi-pack/.


The new work by VV managed to cause a lot of agitation even before the official release – and that was absolutely deserved. This refers both to the song, and the video for it – Oleg Skrypka and his friends are not afraid of subjecting themselves to creative experiments, that is why the video "Chio Chio San" for many became a real surprise..
Domestic price: 152.90UAH, International price: $13.90USD

Vopli Vidopliassova. Himn-Slaven Ukrajiny. (CD+DVD). /digi-pack/. (Hymn-Glorification of Ukraine)


...the need for updating the first line of the text has long already been soaring among Ukrainians, emphasizing above all positive and optimistic aspects of things. However, VV did not intend to undertake the absolute role of changing the habitual and legalized word, that is why they announced an all-Ukraine competition for the text of glorification among the Ukrainian people...
Domestic price: 201.30UAH, International price: $18.30USD

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: 157.30UAH, International price: $14.30USD

Uliana Horbachevska. Dole. /digi-pack/. (Destiny)


Perhaps, it would sound surprising if one said – silent music. But – how else could one put it? No, it does not keep silent, it is something different. This is the beauty that can only be born in pure silence, in the situation of total immersion into, total emergence from...
Domestic price: 119.90UAH, International price: $10.90USD

Ghurt YoGhurt. real live album.


Still everyone who is not indifferent to the Western musical tradition in its pro-Celtic variations. Having heard this album. I think. Will not be. Frustrated.
Domestic price: 300.30UAH, International price: $27.30USD

Gutsul Calipso. Reket-Hanhstera. (Racket-Gangsters)


Gutsul Kalipso play music that they personally name "Guzul-hop" and sometimes define it as a mixture of Bukovyna folklore, hip-hop and jazz. Judging by everything, the All-Mighty Jah has not gone round creative searches of these smiling fighters with his favorable attention either – as a result, a very fanciful but also no less positive music freak has seen the light of the day.
Domestic price: 218.90UAH, International price: $19.90USD

Sergiy Davydov. Ukrainian Jazz Round Dances.


It either laughs or winks wilily – or sounds with such pensive tenderness, such forgivene... There is the beauty of every minute, which does not depend on the past or the future, which is – just now, and for this reason – always.
Domestic price: 300.30UAH, International price: $27.30USD

DakhaBrakha. Yahudky. /re-edition, digi-pack/.


DahaBraha is sometimes water – feeding, cherishing, carrying and guarding. And sometimes – the thinnest blade cutting a mustard grain in half in order to find there – wind, sun, freedom. Nobody knows what exactly each of us will find here, but we are sure – to find...
Domestic price: 394.90UAH, International price: $35.90USD

Delia. Spohad. (Flashback)


Alternative music? – yes, this is it. Sympho-rock – yes, moreover, already now the group feels very confident in this sense, works at a large scale. Gothic? – yes, this is exactly the word that is the first to occur, if one speaks about the atmosphere as a whole, and about some texts in particular. Melodious heavy metal? – this, obviously, was the basis from which what we hear now grows.
Domestic price: 251.90UAH, International price: $22.90USD

Der Neustuck Orchester. Underground Horse.


Acquaintance simultaneous with farewell, and consequently – endless and vanishing, with all possible plenitude of emptine... A strange black-and-white flower that one needs to break in order to see all colors of the spectrum on the stem fracture. In an instant a drop of night juice oozes there..
Domestic price: 251.90UAH, International price: $22.90USD

Jazz-Choral (A. Gebel). Perepletinnia. (Interlacing)


It has been repeatedly tested – any morning started with this music unnoticeably but certainly becomes a holiday. Not loudly. Not a holiday you find in the calendar. A live holiday – it is when your face shines with a smile, when eyes shine with the warmth inside. Well, you know that. No doubt, they know that as well – those who composed and released "Interlacing".
Domestic price: 300.30UAH, International price: $27.30USD

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: 174.90UAH, International price: $15.90USD

Dollheads. Dollheads.


...it seems that nothing of the kind has yet been released on Ukrainian alternative scene. At that, this refers to alternative of the two directions at once – both rock- and electronic one. Because, as known, Dollheads actively engage in their music electronic devices – in the end, this is heard distinctly. But at that the group plays – live.
Domestic price: 201.30UAH, International price: $18.30USD

"Drevo", female ensemble from the Kryachkivka village. Bahatoholossja. (live). /mini-pack/. (Polyphony)


One song, another one, and here it already seems that when performing they appear in some different dimension, fly up in sorrow and tranquility. Here the song fades, and in an instant the audience applauds sincerely - and these applauses seem to abruptly bring the women back on the scene. Possibly, too abruptly – and again they squint at the light, smile awkwardly. But in another moment a new song starts – and a new splash, new release in tranquility...
Domestic price: 141.90UAH, International price: $12.90USD

Second Breath. Save the Blues.


Second Breath is a Kyiv group that has been playing blues for 40 (!) years already. It is quite possible that this is the oldest active blues band not only in Kyiv, but also all through Ukraine. Or, maybe, through considerably wider territories – who know...
Domestic price: 251.90UAH, International price: $22.90USD

Er.J.Orchestra. Gabrielius. /digi-pack/


Only natural things can be like that – the sea in any weather, a streamlet somewhere in the mountains, the eyes of a horse or a deer, a green greeting of an old willow, a smile of an infant …
Domestic price: 647.90UAH, International price: $58.90USD
This item is not available for the moment

Taras Zhytynsky. Kozats‘ki balady. (Cossack Ballads)


Taras mainly sings folk songs – and far not all of these songs are as known and popular as they deserve being. But here one should be grateful not only for revival of some songs, but also for how they sound in his performance: Taras Zhytynsky has the voice and intonations that it is just difficult not to trust to.
Domestic price: 251.90UAH, International price: $22.90USD

Igor Zakus. Zakus Was Here.


Listen how soft but bright the instrument sounds in his hands, how much of his sincere heart is given to it – you can hardly mix this handwriting with anything else. I am sure – even if only the bass by Igor Zakus sounded on the disc, it would be a rich, varied jazz album...
Domestic price: 300.30UAH, International price: $27.30USD

Igor Zakus. Dedications.


You feel that this music sounds not in the usual manner, but because it is composed for close people, with whom you may speak without words (sometimes it is even worth speaking without words).
Domestic price: 350.90UAH, International price: $31.90USD

Olexandr Ihnatusha. Bily vovk. /digi-pack/. (White Wolve)


At a certain moment it seems as if you were listening not to a simple musical album, but to a collection of songs from films. From old and kind films about love, striving, laugh and tears, nonsense and serious questions of life.
Domestic price: 196.90UAH, International price: $17.90USD

Enver Izmailov Trio. Minaret.


From ballads to dance, from folklore through art rock to meditation and jazz – I would call this world fusion, as a lot of roots from the whole world have intertwined here. However, all the plays have their common root: the basis is creative re-consideration of music of Crimean Tatars and other Black Sea peoples.
Domestic price: 592.90UAH, International price: $53.90USD

Inkunabula. Nevydane. (Unprecedented)


Thus, a cradle... Let's see, maybe, something extraordinary will really appear from this cradle to the light of the day. In any case, there are preconditions for optimism for sure. During the three years of its existence, the group has had enough time to attain both a nice quality of the material, and, the main thing, their own manner.
Domestic price: 152.90UAH, International price: $13.90USD

Tina Karol. Nochenka. (Sweet Night)


Quite recently, Tina Karol' released her first album – and here, we already have the continuation. Actually, I would call this work exactly the continuation of the first disk, its supplement – but not a new album. A sort of a maxi-single including everything that develops, enforces conceptions of the debut album.
Domestic price: 251.90UAH, International price: $22.90USD

Qarpa. inZhYR. /digi-pack/


It is difficult to say where from in this fragile girl there is such an enormous amount of kinetic energy – we have nothing but to observe with sincere fascination how the dissected waves fall on the both sides of the selected course... And the course is such that in the last three albums – including this, new one – surprised ears of the audience hear more and more banter, quite hard and psychotropic electronic alternative.
Domestic price: 218.90UAH, International price: $19.90USD

Qzzaargh, Perkalaba. Qzzaargh vs. Perkalaba.


There are "Perkalaba" group works pulverized with Kuzia muscle on the disk. It's now more clear but multilayer, something more sad but philosophic...
Domestic price: 185.90UAH, International price: $16.90USD

Yuriy Kovtun. BraviBelli.


...the album at once creates elated, festive mood – but in a surprising way. In the correct way. Because, although about a half of the compositions can hardly be called merry ones – a smile is very expressly felt in them. Somewhere dim, somewhere transparent, somewhere dreamy, somewhere thoughtful – but it is present in each piece, and it warms.
Domestic price: 152.90UAH, International price: $13.90USD

Ivan Kozlovsky. Zasvystaly kozachenky. Ukrainian folk songs. P.1.


And you will not notice as you get transferred in another dimension, another way of reality perception. Let alone the very voice of Ivan Kozlovs'ky, this wonderful instrument. Open, gentle, transparent...
Domestic price: 251.90UAH, International price: $22.90USD

Konstantin Kolesnichenko. Hypnotized! /digi-pack/.


..there are things that "penetrate" even without special training – and this album deserves attention no matter how well you're familiar with the blues. As it is played extremely deliciously – with appropriate conciseness, but not dryness. Because it is played by young jazz musicians, hence "Hypnotized!" has incorporated features of both blues and jazz..
Domestic price: 201.30UAH, International price: $18.30USD

Komu Vnyz. 4: Shevchenko. (EP). /digi-pack/.


..There is space both for an atmospheric ballad, and for the proprietary hard "art-bombardment", and a recitative prophecy/spell that makes you freeze – in other words, listen. A worthy succinct statement.
Domestic price: 284.90UAH, International price: $25.90USD

Myroslava Kotorovych, State chamber ensemble "Kyiv Soloists". Sotvorinnya. /digi-pack/. (Creation)


...music in their performance sounds bright, enchanting – and intimate. They play as though for the whole world – but also as if only for you and only now. However, the listener must also conscientiously perform his/her attentive, concentrated and relaxed work – otherwise, honest exchange will not be possible. Not to speak – to listen.
Domestic price: 201.30UAH, International price: $18.30USD

Krapka. Khrestyky y nuli. /digi-pack/. (Noughts and Crosses)


...the guys combine seemingly incongruous stuff. The second album by the band turns out as a "salad" where the team aspires to demonstrate the entire range of their music's versatility. In addition to the ethno-hop traditional for "Krapka", in their songs the guys focus on such styles as trip-hop, sweet-jazz, and even boogie.
Domestic price: 207.90UAH, International price: $18.90USD

Krobak. The Diary of the Missed One.


At some instant this sort of music simply divides the dense mass of the audience into a sum of separate selves – in order to reunite them later, but already at another level. Then this is no longer a crowd, then these are people... It is possible to say otherwise. In this music, beauty is dissolved – which you listen and hear staying alone with yourself, even if there is someone else around...
Domestic price: 251.90UAH, International price: $22.90USD

Ladovytsi. A Bozhaya Maty po svitu khodyla. /digi-pack/. (Oh Mother of God walked along the world)


"Ladovytsi" have a very respectful attitude to preservation of the tradition – thus, we are talking about reproduction of the authentic performance. However, you don't need to think about that – just listen, because the songs are really good. They somehow imperceptibly dissolve the exhaustion and habit of the routine – and fill with the hope for joy.
Domestic price: 201.30UAH, International price: $18.30USD

Lama. Svitlo i tin‘. (Light and Shade)


It is pleasant that one step ahead was made with arrangements – "Light and Shade" sounds more voluminous, expressive, diverse. It is pleasant that Philharmonic Orchestra can be heard in the majority of the songs – and it is pleasant that this is not the only sparkle in the album. Music of the project is more and more tending to rock sounding – but remains light. And no doubt – its sounding brings pleasure.
Domestic price: 251.90UAH, International price: $22.90USD

Vasyl Lytvyn. Oy polety halko. (Hey, Fly the Daw)


Vasyl Lytvyn has already been singing for almost fifty years – but a disc with his pieces has been released only now. It is possible, sure, to complain on that score – for during the time that has passed a lot has been done, and it would be a pity if his achievements were lost. But it is also a reason to be glad as well – because if there is beginning, continuation may follow.
Domestic price: 207.90UAH, International price: $18.90USD

Mad Heads. Naked Flame.


It is well known fact that from times of the first rock –and-roll half century has passed. But lads play with such a vigorous energy, a healthy and young pressure as if this wave has recently begun. And with the skill that is pleasant.
Domestic price: 157.30UAH, International price: $14.30USD

Mandry. Romansero Pro Nizhnu Korolevu. 2nd edition. (Romansero about the Tender Queen)


They say it is not by chance that Foma with his musicians repeatedly played music in the streets of Kyiv. Listen – he conveys the true urban slang, this is exactly the Kyiv Ukrainian language, moreover – as it was in the early twentieth century.
Domestic price: 251.90UAH, International price: $22.90USD

Mandry. Rusalky. /slim box/. (Water-nymphes)


Have a trip through the world Ukrainian folk tales and legends.
Domestic price: 251.90UAH, International price: $22.90USD

Mandry. Mandry u Krajini Mriy. (live). /digi-pack/. (Wayfaring in the Dreamland)


...good, high-quality recording. It will be able to bring pleasure not only to fans of Mandry, but also to all those who value concert albums as such – because here they have really "caught the tail" of the live energy, everything is precise. This is about the welcome. Well, and farewell...
Domestic price: 251.90UAH, International price: $22.90USD

ManSound. If It's Magic...


...such names as George Benson, George Gershvin or Steve Wander, as well as their compositions, are well known to everyone. You should not have any doubt – it will be pleasant to listen to the adaptations of famous compositions presented at this disc. They cannot be usual simply because the group performs a-capella...
Domestic price: 300.30UAH, International price: $27.30USD

ManSound. In the Name of Life... (in memory of Vladimir Mikhnovetsky)


Volodymyr Mihnovetsky. The creator and guardian of the group, masterful and inspired singer, composer, arranger, manager – each of participants of the sextet, probably, will confirm that without this person ManSound could just never have appeared...
Domestic price: 185.90UAH, International price: $16.90USD

ManSound. Slavic roots.


...a capella sextet ManSound from Kyiv, Ukraine, is the most interesting Ukrainian vocal ensemble around...
Domestic price: 201.30UAH, International price: $18.30USD

ManSound, Oxana Bilozir. Pid oblachkom. (Under the Window)


"Under the Window" is just a frankly beautiful album. Tenderness and force are mixed here really exactly, delicately, you start admiring it – and already just do not notice how you submerge in the music deeper. For still correct, harmonious combination of the female and masculine is not a trifle, it is from such ground that real women and men, beautiful people grow.
Domestic price: 251.90UAH, International price: $22.90USD

Marenych Trio. Try Topoli. (Three Poplars)

Domestic price: 350.90UAH, International price: $31.90USD

Marenych Trio. Oy, Pid Vyshneyu.

Domestic price: 350.90UAH, International price: $31.90USD

Nina Matvienko. Zolotyj kamin posijemo. (2CD). (We shall sow gold stone)


It is not a simple collection of musical compositions which would show the performer’s art, it is the whole mythological and philosophical conception of creation and development, life, death and rebirth presented in musical form.
Domestic price: 548.90UAH, International price: $49.90USD

Nina Matvienko. Kolyskova zori. (Lullaby to a evening-glow)


You will hear songs that actually have not been released earlier. Nina Matvienko... Such force and clearness are there in her voice that even songs familiar for a long time sound so fresh, as if for the first time. To say nothing of less known songs – their sounding at once bewitches, grasps all of your attention entirely. And such attention is generously rewarded.
Domestic price: 251.90UAH, International price: $22.90USD

Nina Matvienko. Molytva. (Prayer)


It seems to me that Nina Matvienko long ago became a guide to something so subtle, light, sincere, that there are no words in human language for this. The beauty that she carries already cannot be called only Ukrainian – it goes beyond national and geographical borders, it has universal importance.
Domestic price: 251.90UAH, International price: $22.90USD

Arsen Mirzoyan. Gudzyky. /digi-pack/. (Buttons)


After the ending of the TV show "Voice of the Country", everybody, sure, expected for Arsen Mirzoyan to release a disc. But it could hardly be expected to happen so soon – so, for many the debut album, we believe, is a surprise. Definitely – a nice one.
Domestic price: 300.30UAH, International price: $27.30USD

Motion Trio. Pictures from the Street.


It seems to me that none who has at least once heard performance by Motion Trio – and the more so none who has seen it – will ever forget, mix it up with anybody. And the thing is not only original composition – although you will hardly find among performers of jazz, art rock, folk fusion another trio what would consist exceptionally of accordions.
Domestic price: 300.30UAH, International price: $27.30USD

2sleepy. Art Fraud. /digi-pack/


Surprisingly soft, lyric, even tender rock music wrapped in multiplayer electronic diaper... Absolute correspondence to the name of the group. So delicate balancing on that rim of a dream, where colors are childishly bright, but contours have already been washed out with lolling of quiet waves – it charms from the first second, as if petals of a night campfire. One feels it as rough warmth of a knitted sweater...
Domestic price: 174.90UAH, International price: $15.90USD

Nikita. ChamelEon.


She as though plays, but so sincerely as only children can – she does not pretend but really lives in it. And that is why – you trust it. Such discs are as if clothes of a Transparent Gipsy. Now beautiful – and then just fanciful. Made of a thousand shreds, each of them having its own story...
Domestic price: 201.30UAH, International price: $18.30USD

Ojra. Krokovoje koleso. /digi-pack/


First I listened to the Ojra’s records somewhere at the end of 90-ties, yet then it was the attempt to join the archaic and the up-to-date. The staff of the group changed several times since then, and they didn’t give up to search. Of course, a variety of creative paths they made gave its outcome: one of the best, I think, neo-folk records of all Ukrainian discography of the recent years.

Ot Vinta. Dupotryaska. (AssJump)


First, you see now not an album as such, but the first thematic collection by the group Ot Vinta. And second – at which the name hints – this disc surprisingly transfers the group's creativity inot a new dimension, the dimension of seemingly sheer dance music. Seemingly – because the boys have not lost their sense of humor, and for that reason the music has remained very specific.

Ot Vinta. Potom i krovju. (With Sweat and Blood)


First, everything is as ever – loads of drive and salty humor, easy-going fun and tricky jibes. And then you somehow suddenly realize that you listen to topical songs, poignant enough to feel reluctant to laugh – but, at the same time, so fiery that, nevertheless, this does not destroy the mood...

Ot Vinta. Potom i krovju. /limited, eco-pack/. (With Sweat and Blood)


To your attention – the second release of the album in another (cardboard) packaging. ...And then you somehow suddenly realize that you listen to topical songs, poignant enough to feel reluctant to laugh – but, at the same time, so fiery that, nevertheless, this does not destroy the mood...

Ot Vinta. Pilotka. /digi-pack/. (The Forage Cap)


..there is so much drive that one can hardly believe its "acousticity". And one of the causes of such sound is the truly rich set of instruments used by the musicians during the recording (guitar, banjo, harmonica, kazoo, ukulele, flute, kozobass, xylophone, etc.). Very rich and bright – just like always with "Ot Vinta"..

Ocheretyany Kit. Mandrivka v Kosakivku.


It smells the sun, it shines with salt, it smiles in sun burnt wrinkles. And everything here, on the disc, is so pertinent and harmonious that it is even hard to believe it, and it becomes very joyful. The song shines itself – and it shines for people
Domestic price: 300.30UAH, International price: $27.30USD

Pianoboy. Prostye veschi. /digi-pack/. (Simple Things)


To say that Pianoboy has pleased us with his debut work – it means to say not enough. I do not know who has been expecting for what – though after Okean Elzy, Esthetic Education and Zemfira one could hardly seriously anticipate a failure? – but I suspect that the album will surpass most expectations

Pikkardiyska Tertsia. Anthology. Volume 1.


...their singing enchants you again and again. And when they are performing "The garden of angelic songs", you almost believe that the songs are performed not by usual people. They themselves are not angels, of course, (though – who knows?), but angels perhaps join in their song...

Pikkardiyska Tertsia. Sad anhelskykh pisen. (A Garden of Angelic Songs)


For the first time this album saw the light of the day as long ago as in 1997 – and it is even difficult to imagine how many people have been expecting for its second release. They had to expect for exactly 10 years – however, it was worth that. Pikkardijska Tertsia is that very rare case when a collective does not have in their discography a single weak, uninteresting album.

Plach Yeremiji. Dveri kotri naspravdi ye...


Unlike many other rock-groups, lyrics of the songs of "Plach" written by "exterior" poets - Hrytsko Chubay, Victor Neborak and others. And it is a poetry, strong and expressive, is a pivot of the art of the group. Rock music significantly strengthen perception to poetry, sounds in unison with words.

Viktor Pushkar, Serhiy Okhrimchuk. [chomub.ini]. Court music as it could [not] happen.


Is it really so [im]possible to imagine a Court, where the could [not] be exactly this court music? One of answer options – [chomub.ini]. ..It is time to start producing one's own blocks for the game, or to radically change the methods of their combining.

Alex Fokin RadioBand. World instrumental hits. /live/. (2 CDs).

Rock-H. Otava. /digi-pack/. (Aftergrass)


Aftergrass is the grass that grows after the first mowing, usually it is more juicy. So the title is clearly not accidental – although, frankly speaking, the first album "In Vinko..." was already very juicy. Actually, it seems that the debut was so spot-on that the task of the next album was simply to develop and consolidate the previously discovered sparkle...
Domestic price: 251.90UAH, International price: $22.90USD

Rock-H. Spivanochky pro lyubov. /digi-pack/. (Melodies About Love)


It would seem that with such a title one should expect from the album if not pink tears with ruffles – then, in any case, some average ballads. But "Rock-H" from the very beginning stood out against the background, and this time, too, they do not disappoint.
Domestic price: 196.90UAH, International price: $17.90USD

Rosava. teper i potim. (now and then)


You now see already the fourth album released with the name of Rosava on the cover – and it is again absolutely different from all previous ones. However, there is still something in common: this is again – cool. Beautiful.. If all Ukrainian pop-music stuck to such level – the word "muzak" would, probably, quickly disappear from our language..

Run. Over the Border.


In the world, certainly, there are quite a lot of people who play Celtic music – and even more say that they play it. But not everyone is able, having taken a correct basis, to correctly invest his or her own breathing into it – so that the harmony really came to life. Rune – you will hear that yourself – taught their music not simply breathing...

Run. Samhein. /digi-pack/


Samhein is the time beyond time, the few days absent from the calendar, the moment when our world collides with the other one, when spirits of the deceased descend from the hills and wander freely among the living. These are the last days for gathering crops, the time of the year's sum-up, the time to regain peace with yourself and with the world around you...

Ruslana. Amazonka. (Amazon)


Well, you may be confident – she will surprise you. First – with that she has finally managed to separate herself with a significant distance from the Ruslana who was glorified by Wild Dances. Sure, that was far not easy – sure, that was vitally necessary. And, second, – she will no doubt surprise you with HOW she has changed...

Herman Safonov, Helena Strogan. Grieg, Brahms, Galperin.


This is the feeling as if you look at a picture painted in cool tones – and suddenly you understand that it is warm, very saturated emotionally. Then the colors start creating another pattern... Actually, that is why it seems to us that this disc can become a source of significant pleasure for experienced connoisseurs as well.
Domestic price: 174.90UAH, International price: $15.90USD

Herman Safonov, Helena Strogan. Berezovsky, Schubert, Ischenko.


"The duo of H. Safonov and H. Strogan, – according to composer Stankovych, – is the highly-professional ensemble of musicians, who differ due to their rich culture, nice understanding of style and form, delicate test, capability of expression of wide imagination and emotional spectrum: from the finest lyricism to wild wide-open emotion..."

Natalya Svyrydenko. Three Centuries of Baroque.

Siryk B.A.N.D. Zadovbalo!!! (Sick With It!!!)


Siryk B.A.N.D. is as though the voice of such metropolis in which everything is mixed up but has not got lost. So, elements of synth-pop, hip-hop, psychedelics, punk, ethnic hints coexist incredibly harmoniously – one should have truly impartial views in order that this kind of mixtures sounded qualitatively. They have them.

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.

Skryabin. Tango.


These songs seem to get out from a dusky fog into a sunny light – and to become simply honest, without any decorations. They are not always pleasant, still they are not less pure and thanks to this, they are even more valuable. In the sense that when only the truth remains, you can’t call it good or bad – it is better than such appraisal.

Volodymyr Solyanyk, Mykola Oorzhak, Serhiy Khmelyov. Tanets i zvuk orla. /digi-pack/. (The Dance and Sounds of an Eagle)


..the album is not free improvisation for keyboards, but – a space of co-creation in the ethno-jazz spirit. Space so deep, versatile – there is enough magic of rhythms, and magic of silence, not to mention the fact that Oorzhak's throat singing  inevitably adds very characteristic colors.

Stoned Jesus. Seven Thunders Roar. /digi-pack/.


This is something new, born due to deep immersion into the old – perhaps, that is why the press release states: "Stoned Jesus play vintage rock in the best tradition of the '70s, inspired not only by heavy blues, early progressive and classical psychedelics, but even grunge, stoner and post-hardcore of the '90s"...

Vasyl Stus. (and others). Zhyvyj holos Vasylia Stusa. (The live voice of Vasyl Stus)


..Why is this disc so interesting? First of all, the voice of Stus himself sounds at it as he recites his own poems. Poems, recited by an author aloud always differ from an author’s poems recited by us, who are not authors, in their sounding and intonations..

Tartak. Nazbyralosya na 2010. /digi-pack/. (Collected for 2010)


...The updates are not so radical that it is impossible to recognize originals – but, on the other hand, the sound nature appears surprisingly diverse. Since a good deal of styles are mixed here, the key common feature of all the tracks is not a certain style but high energy value. Actually, it always happens with Tartak.
Domestic price: 196.90UAH, International price: $17.90USD

Tartak. Opir materialiv. (Resistance of Materials)


He, sure, matures – but this for some reason does not prevent him from looking and seeing, noticing and being engaged, understanding and – speaking. Loudly, brightly, sometimes recklessly. It is not known whether "Tartak" is afraid of being not heard – but it definitely is not afraid of expressing the truth. Thus, with a noticeable shade of irony and even sarcasm – however, without cynicism..
Domestic price: 196.90UAH, International price: $17.90USD

Tartak. Simka. (Seven/Sim-card)


Tartak is one of those projects, that there are very few of, that do not betray themselves. Hence, the new album does not make anybody feel betrayed – Tartak changes, as does everything living, but remains itself.
Domestic price: 185.90UAH, International price: $16.90USD

Tartak, Huljajhorod. Kofein.


The new variant, I think, is to unite those who liked "Guliaygorod" at once – and those to whom it then seemed a bit too hard. Because the engine remains as powerful as before, besides the specificity of aerodynamics are now taken into account in the outlines, they have become smoother and swifter, but inside there are now much more cozy nooks. Result – both the speed and comfort have grown.

Telnyuk Sisters. live krashche. (The Best Live)


Speaking about live sounding – it is impossible not to note perfectionism in the attitude of the group's musicians to their case. "Telnyuk: Sisters" play literally each of their concerts as though for the last time, as though they might have no other opportunity to change anything for the better. And what is that if not true, unfeigned respect to their audience?

Ukrajinski striletski ta povstanski pisni. Golden Collection. (Ukrainian Shooter and Insurgent Troops' Songs)


Our regular visitors long ago already got convinced that appearance of new discs of the "Golden Collection" series is always a reason for good moods, didn't they? And we are happy to admit that the tradition is kept on – compilers of the series, as well as before, discover new original themes for the collections – this is important, you should agree.

Faktychno Sami. Kosmichnyj vakuum. (Space Vacuum)


lately it is well-aimed – a distracting blow on mind, a sort of that it is a logical riddle – but actually all this is directed at the emotional body, and in order to understand and get penetrated with it – it is not necessary to understand. the other way round, you should not understand – and then everything becomes clear. in a nutshell – zen. somewhat technogenic entourage...

Foma. Concert in "Golden Gates". Live.


This time this is an alive recording during a concert, a kind of distinctive unplugged, as Foma accompanies his singing with a guitar only. Still because of that songs do not lose anything. Most likely it, as usual, gives the opportunity to listen more attentively to singing itself, exactly to inner melody of the songs, and they do not lack it at all.

Jean-Pierre Froehly. Away from the crowd. The music of Attila Zoller.


Probably, you know music by Zoller. The key zest of this album, however, is that the main emphasis is put, strangely enough, not quite on the guitar: together with drums and the contrabass it creates the basic canvas, and the already mentioned contrabass together with the flute and, from time to time, the piano – add to the sounding the brightest and deepest colors, and not only solo..

SHEcrIES. 4 Vivisected Souls.


11 years have passed after release of the first album by this team. It seemed for some time that the group no longer existed. But they have won over time and have appeared with a new composition and new music, which was defined as sad aggressive metal. Some say that they have transformed doom metal, others – that SHEcrIES have abandoned it completely.
Domestic price: 152.90UAH, International price: $13.90USD

ShockolaD. Single. /mini-pack/.


ShockolaD again combines Ukrainian folklore with improvisational music, and the ethnic component, as well as before, is strong and expressive – but this time the group represents fusion that literally borders on world music. In other words, in our view, this is soft music understandable for a very wide public – which, nevertheless, remains pleasantly intelligent, delicate.
Domestic price: 152.90UAH, International price: $13.90USD

Marta Shpak. Na svitanku. /digi-pack/. (At Dawn)


"At Dawn" – by the way, Marta's first solo album – is a moderate option for the combination of folklore and variety art. Actually, folklore motifs are woven into the music here – and ethnic connotations often loom through the performance manner as well.
Domestic price: 130.90UAH, International price: $11.90USD

Marta Shpak, Molotov 20. Osiayni. The modern treatment of traditional Ukrainian folk music. /digi-pack/. (Enlighted)


Rhythms of "Osiayni" bewitch with their soft, silent pace. Marta, in her turn, also obviously appears here not by chance. Her voice has a very interesting feature – it somehow inexplicably combines in itself the past and the future. It seems to be native – and somehow not from here.

The Yurcash. Menuets. Tjulpany 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.
