Akapulko. Dveri v Raj. /digi-pack/. (Heaven Door)


The author project by Serhiy Sakhno – the drummer of the legendary VV. "Akapulko" presents a completely new musical style, "trip-twist", as well as an incredible mix of Ukrainian melodies, dynamic hard "rock'n'pop", and the bluesy psychedelia of the 60s combined with the highly fashionable today "new sound of Berlin"...
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

AntytilA. Vybyray. /digi-pack/. (Choose)


Their first album, "Buduvudu" was a couple years ago one of the best Ukrainian rock debuts. However, it was fair enough. Well, and the second album – that is more quality and craftsmanship, more self-awareness. More questions – and, perhaps, more open answer...
Domestic price: 107.46UAH, International price: $15.92USD

AntytilA. Nad polyusamy. /digi-pack/. (Over the Poles)


It was in 2012 when several songs from the album were written and presented. Other tracks were finished only a month ago. While the recording sessions were under way members of the band got through rather significant issues in their lives. Definitely, those issues couldn’t help but leave a mark on the new vision and feelings towards music...
Domestic price: 120.96UAH, International price: $17.92USD

AntytilA. Sontse. /digi-pack/. (Sun)


The new album by Antytila was released unexpectedly quickly – but the title "Sun" seems to imply that there was no need to wait, that the time came. Or – were the new songs so much burning inside that one had to release them as soon as possible? However, the cover of "People Like Ships" by Skryabin here may indicate at something quite different
Domestic price: 109.89UAH, International price: $16.28USD

Arachnophobia. Arachnophobia.


Powerful, sated musical grenade, in which classical, pure rock borders on the Gothic sound – and this is already good. But Valery Vlasenko’s vocals are something really so deep, rare, genuine that one even gets surprised...
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Arlett. Arlett. /digi-pack/.


..Eventually, the debut album by Arlett generally somehow avoids excesses, sticks to certain mainstream – which, incidentally, has its zest. It is read as being without a mask, simple expression, a sort of a light conversation. Due to which, probably, there will be a chance and the will for a deeper conversation.
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Asymmetry of Emotions. Setalight.


In spite of the love and respect of the group participants for works by "Beatles" stated in the autobiography, this is not about copying, imitation – and it is good. Perhaps, the only common feature is that the "Asymmetry of Emotions" also plays pop-rock. Maybe, with the prefix "indie". And, of course, very emotional.
Domestic price: 67.16UAH, International price: $9.95USD

Sergey Babkin. Motor. (Action)


His audience is growing if not with the speed of a lightning, then – incessantly. At that, in three directions simultaneously. One – the listeners who came to love his own songs. Second – the audience who keep track of his theatrical life (i.e. "Theater 19"). Third – readers who value interesting poetry.
Domestic price: 107.46UAH, International price: $15.92USD

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...
Domestic price: 114.21UAH, International price: $16.92USD

Brutto. Rodny kraj. /digi-pack/. (Native Land)


In the world, there are songs for fun, for escape, for kissing – lots of them. While these ones are song with the realization that they are grounded on truth. For the sake of which fear was defeated. And this feeling is very valuable.
Domestic price: 120.96UAH, International price: $17.92USD

The VYO. Mapa. /digi-pack/. (The Map)


..the life goes on – versatile, diverse. And the album "The Map" really resembles a map of life. Both in terms of the geography – half of the songs here have clear enough "links to the locality". And in emotional terms – because one can find here meditation, and irony, and gratitude, and joy, and sorrow...
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Vombad. Pereplyvu okean... (I Will Swim Across the Ocean...)


...A sort of an album of ballads. If you do not listen attentively – it seems very balanced. But when you are attentive – that is when the second bottom opens: it is an album of deep feelings, bright experiences and, at the same time, quiet reflections. Not speculations on a topic, but exactly – individual reflections.
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Boombox. Vse vklyucheno. /digi-pack/. (All Inclusive)


Well, here is finally the long-expected album by the new "Boombox" – new in the aspect of sounding. The trick is that this is material recorded in a rock manner. For this reason the work has the name "All Inclusive" – because everything is done here with the help of "live" instruments, and in particular – at participation of a real rhythm section.
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Boombox. Seredniy vik. /digi-pack/. (Middle Age)


The new album by Boombox is another very significant reason to mention the year 2011 as one of the most yielding years for the non-ordinary Ukrainian popular music. No doubt – despite the title, "Middle Age", no crisis is in question here. On the contrary.
Domestic price: 107.46UAH, International price: $15.92USD

Boombox. Seredniy vik. /vinyl 140g LP/. (Middle Age)


Please, find out the current price by writing to info@umka.com.ua. No doubt – despite the title, "Middle Age", no crisis is in question here. On the contrary. If you were missing something in the previous works by the band – now there is enough of everything: drive, imagination, diversity, groove, warmth, irony – freedom... (Czech pressing, black vinyl LP, 140g)
Domestic price: 546.21UAH, International price: $80.92USD

Boombox. Terminal B. /digi-pack/.


Something is changing inside. The feeling is as if Andriy Khlyvnyuk submerges much deeper now, and peers much closer, and than suddenly opens up and appears probably even defenceless, vulnerable – and because of that, however strange that may be, stronger. Even if it is painful. And this movement is there.
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Boombox. Terminal B. /vinyl 140g LP/.


Please, find out the current price by writing to info@umka.com.ua. After a year of creative efforts, "Boombox" presents its new album "Terminal B", inspired by the band's frequent flights, as well as by recording the songs directly at the Ukrainian airport terminal... (Czech pressing, black vinyl LP, 140g)

Boombox. Lyudy. (EP). /eco-pack/. (People)


"People" is a work small in size, but rich in content. From heavy teen romance – to some serious generalizations only possible when having gained experience. From quite intimate reflections – to civil pathos. And in terms of the sheer sound, it turns out – diverse.
Domestic price: 87.21UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Svyatoslav Vakarchuk. Brussels. /digi-pack/.


The main thing is that this music is not committed to a certain style, but rather to a certain brand, a quality of expression. So, if for the sake of this quality one needs to add some atypical colors – it happens in an easy and natural way. Such a cool simplicity. At the same time – it is a team play, in which no one pulls the blanket over himself.
Domestic price: 114.21UAH, International price: $16.92USD

Serhiy Vasylyuk. Skhovane oblychchja. (Hidden Face)


Virtually every second song is a real long ballad with a number of details, nuances in the story. And if they were performed with a full-fledged rock composition and the proper arrangement – this would be songs that are10-15 minutes long, or even more. But here, in the acoustic version, everything is compact, expressed, clear.
Domestic price: 120.96UAH, International price: $17.92USD

WhaTsup. Yak vsi. /digi-pack/. (As Everyone)


In fact, this album is a folder containing two debut pieces at once. The main one – from the WhaTsup project, while another third of the volume is their side project "Fekaladka". Well, Kharkiv musicians like doing it differently from the rest – thus, the title of the album can be viewed as banter...
Domestic price: 120.96UAH, International price: $17.92USD

Vpershe Chuyu. PryamoTok. /digi-pack/. (ForwardFlow)


As far as we know – this is the first album in Ukraine (at least, among officially released ones) dedicated to bikers. Dedicated not only formally, but also thematically. However, the disc "Biker Sich" has been released just recently – but it was a collection of favorite songs, not the author's dedication album. A significant difference.
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Vasya Club, Vasyl Hontarsky. Rus‘kyy al‘bom. (Russian Album)


Strange as it may appear, but you’ll 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 doesn’t 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: 87.21UAH, International price: $12.92USD

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: 154.71UAH, International price: $22.92USD

Vasya Club, Vasyl Hontarsky. Hipan. (anniversary edition). /digi-pack/. (Hipster)


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.
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Gorgisheli. Rombambar.


So, the third album. The one who tracks it from the beginning – probably, will notice that the group does not change masks but sticks in its motion with a certain direction. And that is why one can see very well that the sounding becomes more confident and, at the same time, transparent – in other words, quality noticeably increases..
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Druha Rika. Metanoia. P.1. /digi-pack/.


It seems that something has happened – the "Druha Rika" band has changed. Significantly. In this case, everything came together surprisingly well – true harmonization of everything that was there. The new album is music of people who know what they want and are really able to implement their idea exactly as they want to... Finally.
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Druha Rika. Supernation. /re-edition/.


In relation to the previous album, it was already mentioned that Druha Rika has changed significantly. Now we can only confirm: that was really not a passing discovery but a qualitative step. Above themselves – and the new work is an evidence of that there is no way back, and nobody needs it.
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Epolets. Dogma.


The new disk combines songs about a variety of facets of our life – there is blues and loneliness, exciting gospel and sex, punk and showing off, trip-hop and anger, poignant tango and war. The world is changing every day, dogmas keep replacing each other, but we hope...
Domestic price: 93.96UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Esthetic Education. Live At Ring.


...I very clearly feel here the attitude to music as to the goal and way of existence, not a product, however qualitative it might be. I think that it brings the group to balancing on the thin verge – rock, pop, art, magic, bread and show, temptation, the truth of art and art of the truth... this music is in a search. And – it finds.
Domestic price: 76.14UAH, International price: $11.28USD

Nik Efremov. Instrumental Compositions–2.


First of all, this disc is a present for all fans of the guitar music. In its various forms – since Mykola Efremov equally deftly handles both acoustic and electric guitars. Moreover, the album must also please fans of the classical art rock – because it's from the music of the 70's that it grew, and this can be heard.
Domestic price: 87.21UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Nik Efremov. Rytsar. (Knight)


By and large, the album "Knight" continues the lines announced in the previous work by Mykola Efremov. Here you can find both soft lyricism, and epic sketches. If there are acoustic guitars – they are very transparent, they sound weightlessly, one senses the space and fresh air. If electric ones – this is already an art-rock scope..
Domestic price: 87.21UAH, International price: $12.92USD

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?
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Contrabanda.com.ua. Dreamer. /digi-pack/.


..when everything is good, nothing is left to do but just listen. With outstanding – which also matters – pleasure. This is the case when pop music is made so differently compared to most of the customary Ukrainian pop music that.. one can only express sincere gratitude.
Domestic price: 107.46UAH, International price: $15.92USD

Korolivs'ki Zajci. Serce-Misyac'. /digi-pack/. (Moon Heart)


It seems that more than 10 years have passed since the release of the previous album by "Korolivski Zaytsi" – and, perhaps, few could expect continuation. Although, given the first works by the group, this long silence has had to upset all lovers of good poetry decorated with patterns of alternative music.
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Mandarinovy Raj. Podyvys‘ u vikno. (Look Through the Window)


And it is difficult to clearly define what the thing is, why exactly these songs warm you – but there lurks behind the external simplicity a sort of correct filling – unobtrusively, as a rain at night in summer...
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Mandry. Doroha. (Road)


A new CD has got a title "The Way" not by accident: this name corresponds to the content of the album and to its mood. The road, journeys, nature, love…
Domestic price: 147.96UAH, International price: $21.92USD

Mad Heads XL. Nadiya Yea. (There Is Hope)


Rockabilly clothes have obviously become too small for them, that’s why now different trends like rock’n’roll, folk, punk, reggae and even a bit of swing have got mixed in this music. But the main thing is a powerful, like spring, and positive power.
Domestic price: 107.46UAH, International price: $15.92USD

Mad Heads XL. Forever.


In the sphere of music, the group has developed and deepened the stylistics set with the album "There Is Hope" – thus, drive has became a bit less hard, but in some respect even more powerful, plastic. But there is also another aspect.Vadym Krasnooky becomes – forgive my loose definition – a lyrically-cheerful philosopher, and this does impress.
Domestic price: 107.46UAH, International price: $15.92USD

Mad Heads. 8. /eco-pack/.


It seems that the musicians just played the songs as they wished, and, due to all their previous experience, it turned out multicolored. That is, there are elements of both rockabilly, ska, and ethno, and honest rock without frills – but there is no issue of purity of style, everything just works for the sake of the resulting drive. Works well..
Domestic price: 107.46UAH, International price: $15.92USD

Mekhanichny Apel'syn. Boichutsky Blues.


It looks hardly possible that the name "Mehanichny Apelsyn" ("Clockwork Orange") directly relates to the oeuvre by Burgess: otherwise, it would be quite possible that the group would play a mixture of sort of glam-trash-heavy-punk – wouldn't it? Although that's not a fact. However, "Mehanichny Apelsyn" performs a different – maybe, classic – mixture: blues, rock-and-roll and big beat.
Domestic price: 87.21UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Mekhanichny Apel'syn. Tsyrk kvitiv. (The Circus of Flowers)


...their second album "The Circus of Flowers" sounds much more balanced and serious, and in many other ways different. Stylistically, it is still based on blues-rock, and even with little insertions of reggae, ska, etc, this is the same band. The Mechanical Orange remains itself.
Domestic price: 87.21UAH, International price: $12.92USD

My zdolajemo chas /posvjata Herojam/. (We Will Defeat the Time /dedication to Heroes/)


"We Will Defeat the Time" is a dedication to memory of fighters for freedom of Ukraine and the 50th anniversary of death of Stepan Bandera. A sort of a call – not to forget about those who fought, militated, perished when young. Not to forget that history tends to repetitions – and what the next repetition will be like depends on us only.
Domestic price: 80.46UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Victor Morozov, Chetvertyy kut. Armija Svitla. (Army of Light)


...the album again suggests the idea that the war for independence of Ukraine that started dozens of years ago – lasts till now. And now even more than ever before it is opposition of identities – because external, political and geographic independence is worth nothing unless it is founded on internal freedom. To quote the song – "...to be oneself and to be proud".
Domestic price: 120.96UAH, International price: $17.92USD

Motor'rolla. Kol‘orovi sny. (de luxe edition). (Colored Dreams)


Motor'rolla, disregarding obstacles, has managed to make a step ahead in quality – it seems that right now the group has finally found its real sounding, has reached a sort of their own standard. This is important – because, having such a work in one's reserve, it is possible to freely experiment in any direction. Durable foundation – is there.
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Mureny. Skhozha na osin‘. (Looking Like Autumn)


The main thing is to create high-quality music and to maximally enjoy the very process. They do succeed in that. Both in texts, and in music by the group, it is possible to hear sincerity without glossy sugar – nevertheless, externally everything sounds easily and naturally. Mureny are somehow able to keep the look of outsiders, but at the same time create interesting, not really unambiguous pop-rock.
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Nedaremno. Stezhky do tebe. /digi-pack/. (Trails to You)


"NedaremnO" tries to sound different. Not too "trimmed" – and it has its advantages, because lack of syrup makes the taste much more honest. There is some special drive – that young groups had in abundance 10 to 20 years ago, but which many of the current "novices" often lack.
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

N.Try. Jakby ja mih znaty... (If I Could Know...)


Even their texts alone would already be quite sufficient to advantageously stand out against the majority – no doubt. This, if you wish, already really looks like rock poetry. Well, and plus – actually the music. Two bright constituents perfectly merge in it. On the one hand, this is powerful rock. On the other – warm freshness arising due to participation of not quite ordinary, as for rock, instruments matters here – a pan-pipe, accordion, domra.
Domestic price: 87.21UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Okean Elzy. tvij format.


"Frankly speaking, seventy percent of our songs I like much more in this variant then in album versions. Especially Divchyna" (S. Vakarchuk, leader of OE)
Domestic price: 289.71UAH, International price: $42.92USD

Okean Elzy. Dolce Vita. Remastered. /re-edition, digi-pack/.


Mastering of this release was performed in the USA, in the studio of the legendary sound producer Bob Ludwig, whose experience during the almost half-a-century career includes work with over 1200 musicians. This mastering was born at the height of "Dolce Vita Tour" in 2010 and as brightly as possible it conveys the integral, bright sound of the live concert performance.
Domestic price: 107.46UAH, International price: $15.92USD

Okean Elzy. Tam, de nas nema. /re-edition, digi-pack/. (Where We Are Not)


The first album of nowadays well-known Ukrainian group is in front of you. By the way, for the first time the glory has knocked to them due to a song "Tam, de nas nema"...
Domestic price: 93.96UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Okean Elzy. Yananebibuv. /re-edition, digi-pack/. (I'vebeeninthesky)


This group represents Ukrainian rock'n'roll music of today. It is popular in Ukraine and in Russia by its drive music, strong, unusual vocal, own style. This is their second album. Their style has slightly changed according to modern music tendencies.
Domestic price: 93.96UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Okean Elzy. Model. /re-edition, digi-pack/.


The first impression of this album is "I do not understand". You should listen to this CD, listen more and more, discovering new and new layers of rhythms, melodies and emotions.
Domestic price: 93.96UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Okean Elzy. Supersymmetry. /re-edition, digi-pack/.


Pay attention at the title of the album – it displays its content and its essence very well. The composition of the album and every of its songs, as well as their forms and content, strive to logical harmonicity, adjustedness of every musical move, every note.
Domestic price: 93.96UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Okean Elzy. TViy format. /re-edition, digi-pack/. (Your format)


Live album of an interesting group practically always becomes an event. It happens so because it is not a final invariable result, it is a real brisk process. In such cases masking is impossible. Mistakes are not mistakes here, because all this performance is alive, it breathes, rejoices and suffers.
Domestic price: 201.96UAH, International price: $29.92USD

Okean Elzy. Gloria. /re-edition, digi-pack/.


...the quality of the album – yes – deserves compliments. May be, for the sake of that it was worth while changing the group members – with the exception of Guru, of course. Now it is interesting what will happen next. Because judging by ears – to be continued.
Domestic price: 93.96UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Okean Elzy. Zemlya. /digi-pack/. (Land)


"Land" is a very grand word. But if we put it simple, then this is space for grain – where grain dies in order to generate new life. The basis. What everything stands on, where it returns – in order to leave again...
Domestic price: 120.96UAH, International price: $17.92USD

Okean Elzy. Mira. /re-edition, digi-pack/. (Measure)


.. There is no pursuit for the sake of acknowledgement – and there is no temptation of observing style limitations, but there is the ability to make it maximally as exact as you consider necessary. Sheer rock music grows from this root, creativity not for the sake of freedom, but as its direct result.
Domestic price: 93.96UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Okean Elzy. Bez mezh. /digi-pack/. (Without Limits)


When listening to the new album, you suddenly realize that there are no revelations, instead – there are the songs that you want to hear again. Just because there is nothing excessive in them – and there are some words, phrases (including musical ones) that hit exactly where they should.
Domestic price: 127.71UAH, International price: $18.92USD

Opium. Molysja na mene. (Pray to Me)


"Opium" honestly searches for its own rock language in texts and in music, and this is nice. In our opinion, "Opium" plays simple classic rock – and this, you should agree, is not that easy. Besides, the song lyrics do not resemble a simple set of rhymes and meter at all – the experience lived through, live thoughts and feelings are obviously inlaid into these words.
Domestic price: 87.21UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Opium. Pochuttya i Medali. /digi-pack/. (Feelings and Medals)


It's nice that there are still bands that undertake performing just rock, without flirting with unclear definitions of style, without the pop aplomb or pretended mystery. And the cello as part of it does not interfere. Just honest music, straight and simple (but not empty) lyrics – you know, not that much is needed...
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

O.Torvald. Acoustic. /digi-pack/.


...the sound appears really clear, light, and sometimes almost fragile. Actually, it is possible to compare – because, in addition to new songs, you'll find here several songs from the previous album "In You". This is not yet homely comfort – but this is not desperate thunder of large scenes either, definitely.
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

O.Torvald. Prymat. /digi-pack/. (Primate)


..the group decided to remind themselves and everyone that they had started with post-punk. In contrast to the lyrical and melodic "Acoustic", here the emphasis is on the drive, so the rhythm section worked more assertively, and there are more than enough "heavy" guitars. The texts are, nevertheless, not devoid of certain lyricism, often irony...
Domestic price: 107.46UAH, International price: $15.92USD

O.Torvald. Akustychny/ Vykorystovuy nas. (2CD+DVD). /digi-pack/. (Acoustic/ Use Us)


"These two albums are a most vivid representation of the spirit of these six years on stage, – says the band leader Zhenya Halych. – While the last album "Primate" is already something new for us, and the debut one, "O.Torvald" was the search for our sound, "Acoustic" and "Use Us" are the basis of O.Torvald's work in recent year..."
Domestic price: 289.71UAH, International price: $42.92USD

O.Torvald. Ty Ye. /digi-pack/. (You Are)


A powerful album – at least, in terms of sounding. And it is not only about the flurry of sound – even though its energy does shake you well. But here it is a bit more delicate: eventually, the overall style has not undergone any major changes – but one cannot get rid of the feeling that within them O.Torvald stepped over themselves.
Domestic price: 107.46UAH, International price: $15.92USD

O.Torvald. #nashilyudyvsyudy. (+bonus EV-song). /premium, eco-pack/. (Our People Everywhere)


The album by O.Torvald seems to be evidence of another phase of maturation. Especially in terms of the sound, where the word "density" seems to be most applicable. Note: this release contains the song "Time", with which the band took part in Eurovision-2017.

Victor Pavlik. (and friends). Rock.


..a whole bunch of musicians joined that, including Rock-H, Motor'rolla, Pan Pupets, Sashko Polozhynsky – and in this way a complete cover album of songs from the repertoire of 1992-2015 was formed. It turned out interesting – because the versions often sound quite unexpectedly, and because Pavlik personally contributed into the recording, so all together it is also an album of duets.

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
Domestic price: 222.21UAH, International price: $32.92USD

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.

Platina. Pro tebe... (About You...)


From the moment of the release of the debut album, almost four years have passed now – we can state that during this time music by the group has noticeably changed. Not radically – this is again a sort of "pop rock with heavy elements" – but the quality has become different. The music has become more melodious, arrangement and performance – more transparent..

Propala Hramota. Chudernatska syla. /eco-pack/. (Freakish Power)


It was planned that this disc would only be sold at concerts, but now "Freakish Power" can encounter us anywhere and anytime, and this is – incredibly good. Another fragrant brick for Podillya foundation... I sincerely advise you to cast away umbrellas and the rest of protection means – otherwise there is the risk of just failing to contain.
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Pur:Pur. Nevertheless. /digi-pack/.


You listen to it – and the feeling is as if right in front of your eyes the day turns longer, and the bitter and fresh, amber and transparent finds its way through the shy snow. After a long night.. The entire album dances at the crossroads of coolness and sunlight, goodbye and forgiveness..
Domestic price: 147.96UAH, International price: $21.92USD

Radioraj. Moya heohrafia. (My geography)


The "Radioheaven" project is a good example of rock music created just for the love of the process, not for any mercenary considerations. Thus, there is no cheap epatage, adolescent humor and disregard for detail in the sounding. While there is a quest for their own path, self-respect and, at the same time, self-irony.
Domestic price: 80.46UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Yevhen Rohachevsky. Razom nazavzhdy. /digi-pack/. (Together Forever)


In terms of the sound, one would call this album, quite unexpectedly, ... a collection of romantic songs. The manner of performance, the melody pattern are somewhat reminiscent of Ukrainian "vocal and instrumental ensembles" of the 1970s-80s: there was in that music a sort of sunshine, innocent, trusting openness to the world. Here – the same.
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

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: 120.96UAH, International price: $17.92USD

Role Model. Scylla and Charybdis. /digi-pack/.


Although musicians of the group define their style as pop rock – we should note that "rock" here weighs obviously more than "pop". To the extent that in the sounding of "Role Model" it is possible to discover, for example, elements of punk rock in the American style...
Domestic price: 87.21UAH, International price: $12.92USD

SKAY. "!". /digi-pack/. (+ 3D glasses)


S.K.A.Y. becomes more rock'n'roll, clear, driving. The recognition effect is still there – actually, the group from the very beginning had its specific manner – but one feels more confidence, experience, understanding now. Possibly, it is right now that S.K.A.Y. has finally discovered its palette, and the album "!" in this sense sounds as a sort of summarizing...
Domestic price: 154.71UAH, International price: $22.92USD

SKAY. 10. /digi-pack/.


In the end of 2011, the group "S.K.A.I." loudly celebrated the 10th anniversary of its existence with a big concert in Kyiv – and with releasing, in fact, the anniversary collection, which you see now. The collection includes the best songs from all the three numbered albums released by the group during this time.
Domestic price: 114.21UAH, International price: $16.92USD

SKAY. Kray Neba. (The Edge of Heaven)


S.K.A.Y. can "bang" not only a melodic, beautiful ballad – but undoubtedly drive pieces as well, and "The Edge of Heaven" is just a good evidence to that. The album is quite concise – but thus it is as expressive as possible. Both in the melodies, and in individual music phrases – it is, so to say, precise. While the lyrics are, on the contrary, mostly romantic...
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

SKAY. Nove zhyttya. /digi-pack/. (The New Life)


From the beginning, in their creative work SKAI were clearly guided by exemplary Brit-pop – and they managed that more successfully than so many colleagues on stage – but in that sense something was always missing. But now, it seems, the band has recorded the strongest album in their career, where there is finally enough of the "something".
Domestic price: 134.46UAH, International price: $19.92USD

SunSay. SunSay.


This album was about to become the third work of the band 5'nizza – but unfortunately, while working at the album the musical concept was changed so much that the group broke up. Nevertheless, on the basis of it there appeared a new project the front man of which is Andriy “Sun” Zaporozhets. So the name of it derived from the leader's one.
Domestic price: 107.46UAH, International price: $15.92USD

Skryabin. Nature.


"Skryabin" group has changed it's style several times. Punk, new-wave, neo romantic. At the same time, musicians never loose their face. Skryabin songs are always cognate and a big army of funs like it.
Domestic price: 154.71UAH, International price: $22.92USD

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.
Domestic price: 201.96UAH, International price: $29.92USD

Skryabin. Pro ljubov? (About Love?)


This is relatively light music – but on each album by Skryabin there are always songs on social topics. And sometimes so serious and poignant that it hurts – although externally they, without unnecessary showing off, may look humorous, or quite simple, or sentimental...
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Skryabin. Moja evoljutsija. (My Evolution)


..in the musical aspect no cardinal changes seem to take place – however, there is probably no need of that. Well, and what shall one do with thoughts? Whether you want it or not, you must mature – well, and in our country specifically almost every generation lives through two or three lives at once, therefore childhood passes very quickly..
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Skryabin. Natura. (re-edition). /digi-pack/. (Nature)


It is nice that Skryabin constantly improves its sound, makes it more refined and, so to say, live. "Natura" is modern lyric, with fine music arrangements and general harmoniousness of the album as a whole. Some personal, intimate things are represented here a bit unusually, very simply – but, surprisingly, intimacy is not lost, and even vice versa.
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Skryabin. 25. /digi-pack/.


The album with this name is perceived as a certain summary – but actually it is not. It is, rather, a sort of a response to the present domestic and international challenges – and hope for continuation. Actually, now – the direct quote:...
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Skryabin. Dyakuyu, lyudy... Live concert. (2CD). /digi-pack/. (Thank You, Folks...)


Death cannot attribute meaning if it was not there from the start. But it may highlight some senses and rearrange accents – I think that in the case of songs by Scriabin this will be going on for many more years..
Domestic price: 201.96UAH, International price: $29.92USD

SoloDoschiv. Ya vdoma. /digi-pack/. (I'm Home)


SoloDoschiv is an acoustic minimal band (two guitars and a harmonica) from Lviv. the key emphasis is on the lyrics. And it should be mentioned that you do not that often come across such romantic lyricism with modern band...
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Social Classes. Unplugged. (2CD). /mini-pack/.


...a semi-acoustic recording that allows one to fully experience the inner poetics of the space. The guitar, percussion, bass, occasionally keyboards – well, and, sure, singing (complemented with recitative). Actually, one does not need anything more – at least, one does not perceive any shortage.
Domestic price: 147.96UAH, International price: $21.92USD

Trans-Former. Styhla vyshnja. (A Rip Cherry)


And we will hear the music that is quite rare today in Ukraine – pure rock. Clear rhythms and texts not deprived of the existential, firm guitar turns and energetic male vocal – yes. This is just the color that has been recently lacking in the variety of Ukrainian music, and it’s a pity.
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Trans-Former. Terytorija trojand. (Territory of Roses)


Thus, there are no sophisticated constructions, flirting with the public, theatrical gestures here – but there is simple, and thus strong rock music. And there are the lyrics – probably, not too sophisticated, but thus no less meaningful. Because, in the end, one of the key features of "Trans-Former" has been and still is – honesty.
Domestic price: 107.46UAH, International price: $15.92USD

Trychi. PoNeDilOK. /digi-pack/


It took about two years for this triple union to finally ripen – and, justifying all expectations, the drink has appeared really interesting and decent. You cannot gulp it in one go to forget the next instant – no, here you will want to savor, to come back repeatedly. And attractiveness of this music in that it lives on the border among absolutely different styles, takes something from each but belongs to none of them in full.
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Fayno. Oznaky zhyttya. /digi-pack/. (Signs of Life)


This time "Fayno" once again offer their own lyrics and songs based on poems by such interesting and distinguished authors as Lazutkin, Lyubka, Honchar, Kiyanovska, Moskalets, etc. These interpretations are always interesting to listen to – at least, because the accents sometimes sound very different...
Domestic price: 120.96UAH, International price: $17.92USD

Fiolet. Vigvam. /digi-pack/. (Wigwam)


The first thing I noticed when I started playing the album was that I was intently listening to the lyrics. It's nice because it does not happen that often. This is important – because not only the sound matters, because semantic vibrations also weigh, and emptiness is very different from pauses. Moreover, one immediately notices the quality..
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Fiolet. Pisni lyubovi na poli boyu. /digi-pack/. (Songs of Love on the Battlefield)


"Fiolet" traditionally offers listening to not only pleasant music, but also – smart, witty lyrics. About what is and what will be. About that everything passes. About that everything changes – and remains invariably-incomprehensibly-incredible. Even when it hurts. However...
Domestic price: 134.46UAH, International price: $19.92USD

Shablya. Brattya Ukrajintsi. /digi-pack/. (Brother Ukrainians)


The album "Brother Ukrainians" is a fanciful mix of the patriotic fervor and, oddly enough, irony. On the one hand, there is solid rock with light electronic admixtures and folk echoes. No extra frills – but there is certain nicety in this rectitude. On the other hand –...
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

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.
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

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: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

5'nizza. KU. /super-pack/.


..there is much less boyish hooliganism, the characters have matured, sure, thus having lost something cloudless. And having gained something significant in return, it seems. At least, they have something to say and sometimes may even do that with a smile – which now contains much more shades. What you will hear – depends on yourself. 5'nizza opens various doors..
