Back Country. Reflection of Universe. /digi-pack/

I am sorry, but I will start with lyrical digression. This morning, when I went out into the street, it was autumn all around me - like yesterday – warm, pleasant, and multicoloured. And rather soft, too. As usual, there was the sky over my head – now all clothed in white curls of clouds. The sunlight was not hot yellow, but scattered and silver like in winter and due to this it was transparent. It seemed to me that it was possible to take that light into my palms and to wash with it, and to drink it, to drink as if it were the water from the cleanest of all springs. Then the wind rose and smoothed out my thoughts, and muddled up my hair. At that time I felt easy. Suddenly something melted in the clouds and the smile of the Cheshire Cat appeared. It was floating in the skies and was free from everything. Why do I write all these words? I do it because at night I started listening to the album, which is entitled "The Reflection of the Universe", and the clean morning wind came to me again. I could say something about the reflection of the musical universe here, as several musical trends and styles got skilfully and gently entangled in this album. Still it seems to me that it would not be groundless to speak about the reflection of the Universe itself, as it is a musical stream, which is characterised by generality. It also seems to me that in whatever state of mind a person might be, this music can not only reflect this state, but also release from everything, which is husk, from all bad feeling. There is enough air in these sounds and rays. The stream is light and free to that extend, which allows to place everything around you – and to remain true to oneself. Fortunately, such music does not cultivate dependence on surrounding - on the other hand it leaves space for some other changes. Inside or outside. At that, such music is able to cultivate certain habits. Pleasant ones. For example – habits for high quality. Or for attentive listening.

BUDU band. Vydykh Vdykh. (2CD). /premium, eco-pack/. (Exhale Inhale)


...And – freedom, needed in treatment of the form and details. This is what this album is comprised of – well, and a jolt of haphazardness, to spell out in words the somewhat absurd lyricism of the world capable of joyfully and sadly beautiful acts. Even if it doesn't (?) make sense. Exhale and inhale, mind and heart, because otherwise – it does not work, it does not dance.

Laura Marti. Shine. /digi-pack/.


..on the one hand – the fantasy of jazz musicians. And on the other, all these laces of motions and patterns are thought over and embodied so confidently and easily that this ease allows one to not focus too much, but skip and let it go to the back of one’s mind right away. Instead, one listens to the main melodic line, the beauty and the flexible power of the voice..

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..

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..

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..

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.

Insight, Nino Katamadze. Green.


Very transparent, juicy, quiet and confident and yet full of irrepressible life – this is what this work appears like. Stylistically, it continues the trend including the albums "Black" and "Red" – the pure jazz-rock line, with no direct immersions into the lounge or symphonicity. But in a much softer, tender version.

Braty Bluzu. One Autumn Concert. (live). /digi-pack/.


First, "Braty Blusu" have long ago already – and absolutely deservedly – become a living legend of the Ukrainian jazz-rock. And, second – and this is, probably, even more important – the album is really good and interesting. Interesting, foremost, due to its ambiguousne...

Yuri Andrukhovych, Karbido. Samohon. (special Ukrainian release).


Finally, we have it – the Ukrainian release of the joint album by Yuri Andruhovych and the researchers into psycho-music from Karbido group saw the light of the day. A strange mixture of ethno-jazz, dub, avant-garde rock and ironically sarcastic melodic recitals – no, this list of ingredients, in actual fact, explains nothing. One should listen to it – and this, at least, should once be heard. Better – more than once.

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.
