DOK. DVA. /digi-pack/.
This Donetsk indie project has existed for about three years, and during this time it has already managed to release two albums although the album "DVA", in fact, is the first official release by the band (at least, in Ukraine). "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 styles. But inside of its specific space some lines, sequences are also arranged. In this sense, music by "DOK" quite organically fits into the fields and passageways that are in their own form developed by, for instance, such teams as Mamanet or Jacuzzi Project. They all look similar but not in music because this is usually music with its own bright face rather due to a particular spirit, the quality of musical thinking. And here we should mention the significant internal energy of such art blends. Listening to their recordings is always, at least, interesting. While their performances are able to even qualitatively blow the roof and not for a couple of minutes... however, do not believe it. The best thing is to compare, to check yourselves.

Sheetel. Mr. White. /special edition, digi-pack/.


..it sounds as if somewhere at a rather strange intersection of indie/alt-rock/dark cabaret, without going into any of these territories explicitly, fully. And this is how, one step away from the clear line, they are forming their own space: broken, stormy and muffled, painfully sharp and seemingly conscious of its mirages.
Domestic price: 253.75UAH, International price: $23.28USD

Blooms Corda. Fog Lavender. /mini-pack/.


A good melodic and rhythmic foundation, several invited musicians and more than a dozen instruments, warm weirdness, a sense of intimacy of what is happening Danylo managed to preserve and combine fragile tenderness of the space, unobtrusive confidence of the instrumental lines, the somewhat notched singing..
Domestic price: 206.23UAH, International price: $18.92USD

Postman. Everything Is New. /digi-pack/.


Postman reserves the right, being a participant of certain events, to step into the shadow behind the light boards and become an observer. A light man. The one who asks: why? at what price? what for? The one who answers: in the turmoil of trifle things, in random intersections, in uncertain movements of our hearts we remain ourselves..
Domestic price: 162.63UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Postman. Being High. /mini-pack/.


..In musical terms, this is clearly stemming from what Bob Dylan, Simon & Garfunkel, Donovan, and others were doing some long time ago. Stemming from but not copying, it is just that in Postman's songs there are the same ease and the content that make it possible to anticipate the extra depth, without any prejudice to the beauty.
Domestic price: 144.75UAH, International price: $13.28USD

5 Vymir. Novi imena. /mini-pack/. (New Names)


..this is a marker album and thoughtful preparation for the next step at least, it sounds like that. Indie rock in Ukrainian is still not the mainstream in Ukraine, but 5 Vymir is just one of those bands that are able to change this situation for the better there is enough musical and literary sense, charismatic manifestations, and they are not lacking ambitions. Let them just not stop..
Domestic price: 144.75UAH, International price: $13.28USD

5 Vymir. Mistolinia. /super-pack/. (CityLine)


The first studio album by 5 Vymir is like a rough mixture of the psychedelia of the 70s and the Brit pop of the 90s, inspired by our local dreamlike lifestyle, but flavored with a green, bouncy charge of sound (and it's not about sounding) insolence. It turns out to be very atmospheric..
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

The Elephants. Colors. /premium, eco-pack/.


Brevity, clarity of lines, softness of accents sometimes even on the edge of being toylike. Transparent, like light shade. Add a bit of a bare nerve and this would be "disruption" music, but for the time being The Elephants offer indie-pop-tronic with elements of fabulousness. And they do it so that one wants to believe it.
Domestic price: 144.75UAH, International price: $13.28USD

Odyn v kanoe. Odyn v kanoe. (2CD). /digi-pack/.


..the debut album by "Odyn V Kanoe." At one breath, on one wave, unhurriedly and swiftly at the same time. This band managed to somehow unobtrusively enter the group of quiet sensations in the Ukrainian scene of recent years. What is the secret? Maybe, the depth of the eyes and no masks..
Domestic price: 260.73UAH, International price: $23.92USD

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: 206.23UAH, International price: $18.92USD

Sergey Babkin. #neubyvai. /digi-pack/. (#donotkill)


It's nice when a musician has something to say. The value of what is said is not determined by its amount, of course, but more than 70 minutes of high-quality music that's still good. And Babkin produces quality both in his music, in lyrics.
Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

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.
Domestic price: 162.63UAH, 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: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

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: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

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: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Voanerges. Tsilyuschy Rock Drevnyoho Kyeva. (The Healing Rock of the Ancient Kyiv)


...this music contains so much energy that it definitely leaves no room for indifference. Somewhere, it mesmerizes with art-rock passages, somewhere it shamans with dusky rhythms, somewhere adds a plenty of folklore patterns. And we should specifically mention that apart from the Ukrainian language, the Old Slavonic one sounds here.
Domestic price: 260.73UAH, International price: $23.92USD

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: 122.95UAH, International price: $11.28USD

Voanerges. Boogaj Boogie.


This is already the third official studio album by "Voanerges" and it seems to be the most complete, fully mature one. The fully jazz solos, trip-hop, funk trends, the archaic manner of singing, ska moods all of that is here. However, these things are performed precisely therefore, they are perceived exactly as beautiful decorations, not as a way of showing off.
Domestic price: 166.55UAH, International price: $15.28USD

Skryabin. Striptease +. (re-edition). /digi-pack/.


...the songs lyrics gain even more weight this is an interesting and significant element, indeed. In them, skepticism, sarcasm, unwillingness to defend human weaknesses are combined and the ability to feel true devotion to what you mock at. And on the intersection of these vectors, there unexpectedly appears some unusual, cool and tart, but warmth.
Domestic price: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Viy. Yshov ja nebom. /digi-pack/. (I Was Walking in the Sky)


...these musicians have always preferred travels deep inside. This time as well if one wishes, he/she can discern in the fresh songs by the group political pamphlets and just a poignant evaluation of our historical nowadays. And if one does not it is quite possible to let it go, because their symbolism is obviously deeper than the waves of our routine..
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Dymna Sumish. V krajini iljuziy. /digi-pack/. (In the Country of Illusions)


How many people, having first heard the songs "In the Country of Illusions" and "No", decided that they should certainly buy-listen to the new disc by Dymna Sumish? I think, more than one thousand. How many of them will be disappointed having bought-listened to this disc? I think, none Dymna Sumish, sure, is one of the most interesting groups on the Ukrainian independent scene.

U.RA. Radiosny. (RadioDreams)


It is as if a linen string, on which times and feelings, dreams and ways are strung as if pearls. This necklace sparkles softly, and in it there are as many secrets as beauty...
Domestic price: 112.05UAH, International price: $10.28USD

Johnny Bardo. Basket Case. /digi-pack/


Johnny Bardo is a solo project, a sort of an alter ego of Louis Franck, the leader of Esthetic Education. A bright, interesting project no doubt. You should listen to one or two tracks only to make sure: everything is made in a talented, delicious, high-quality way. The project found its realization after Louis' return from a trip to India..
Domestic price: 253.75UAH, International price: $23.28USD

Esthetic Education. Face Reading. /digi-pack/


The cultivation of taste must simply be carried out - it must continue, and it must be carried out not in a separate point of space or in the framework of a certain musical style or trend.
Domestic price: 184.43UAH, International price: $16.92USD

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: 249.83UAH, International price: $22.92USD

Gutzul Magik Foundation. Molfar. /digi-pack/.


"Molfar", I guess, is about the fact that there is no difference where from and where to, because there as always here-and-now. Where there is no place for hope hope requires memory and time and here all the space is occupied with.. attention? I do not even know you stay in this space while the album plays on, and then this space just plays on in you..
Domestic price: 195.33UAH 185.52UAH
International price: $17.92USD $17.02USD

Alex Nademski, ILLaria. Podykh. /digi-pack/. (Breath)


It is Alex Nademski who is the author of the project and, in particular, of all the lyrics and the music (although he says he only recorded what came to him). ILLaria is a "guest star," the voice. Still, when one listens, it's hard to say whose role is the leading one the both worked at their full capacity, that's sure.
Domestic price: 173.53UAH, International price: $15.92USD

Perkalaba. Rok'it Kuz'mook. /digi-pack/.


On the Internet, this album of eccentric remixes appeared back in 2009, it was released on discs in 2011 and it is still relevant. Why that? Perkalaba experiments not for the sake of wages, but for the sake of the proce...
Domestic price: 206.23UAH, International price: $18.92USD

Dark Patrick. Rise of the Underworld. /mini-pack/.


..Its hard to pinpoint exact influences that aptly mirror what Dark Patrick is going for here, though a safe bet would want to include nods to numerous strata of organic electronica, soundtrack ambient, world ethnotronica, psych and trip-hop. Additionally, the band claims some affiliation to the fertile soils of reggae, dub and trance...
Domestic price: 122.95UAH, International price: $11.28USD

Viktor Krysko. Cinema graffiti. The best of movie music. /digi-pack/.


Above all, Viktor Krysko is known as the constant member of the original Kyiv project Er.J.Orchestra, although recently he pays no less attention to the so-called K-Trio Roman Kolyada's project. Well, and the album "Cinema Graffiti" introduces us to his somewhat different hypostasis. That of a composer.
Domestic price: 238.93UAH, International price: $21.92USD

Ti, Khto Vidayut. Movlennyek. (collection edition). /digi-pack/.


On the one hand Mokh (Oleg Hnativ) has read authentic magic Huzul texts, sayings against evil forces. And their power can hardly be ignored. On the other hand Kuzya (Serhiy Kuzminsky) created the music component and provided the entire material with that very specific sound that brings the album to some other orbit...
Domestic price: 249.83UAH, International price: $22.92USD

Jacuzzi Project. Cheeeeek!


Actually, this is what one should know about Jacuzzi Project: they do not recognize vulgar limits and this is the main principle to which the musicians consistently adhere; in their permanent composition instead of the 6-string guitar, a second bass guitar is involved; in the debut album, apart from the four permanent participants, six invited ones play among which a saxophonist and another (!) bass guitarist...
Domestic price: 217.13UAH, International price: $19.92USD

Mamanet. Ki-Mono.


Festivals of electronic music, jazz, rock everywhere this group feels comfortable, and now it is even testing its ability to create music for films. Mamanet offers to the audience an intellectually energetic, strangely bewitching mixture of trip-hop, acid-jazz, post-rock, drum'n'bass and even disco it is far not possible to define the group's art with some concrete word.
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

NimB. NimB.


Atmospheric guitars, the melodiousness of the bass, separate patterns of the percussion against the background of the not always unambiguous main rhythms and the interwoven braids of the characteristic, emotional vocal by Olena Sas, crystal-clean and warm at the same time. It might seem that everything is simple but this is sort of correct, saturated simplicity that makes it transparent and soft inside..
Domestic price: 122.95UAH, International price: $11.28USD

Konstantin Ionenko. Noema. /digi-pack/.


..these are anyway not flashes or explosions, but light fog, hints, mid-tones, mid-shades.. Heat and cool interweave here rather whimsically one only needs to make a little step aside to be inside, in the heart of the music, and for it to appear in one's heart.
Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Gregory Nemirovsky. SonGs in the Key of Odd. /eco-pack/.


As the title promises, the album has turned out quite strange but in a good sense. This is the strangeness that can only be afforded by good,versatile musicians otherwise, originality may easily turn into farce, showing off. This did not happen here one virtually feels with one's skin in what a thin, delicate way all of that is compiled.
Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Dmitry "Bobeen" Alexandrov, Jazz Atmosphere. Time After Break.


On the one hand, there seems no be nothing superfluous even Aleksandrov, oddly enough, has not added too much pepper, even though he knows how to do it at the level of "excellent". And on the other the organism works so smoothly, without failures, that the entire album literary flies at one breath...
Domestic price: 122.95UAH, International price: $11.28USD

Sax Kings. Fever. /digi-pack/.


"Fever" is a studio work. So, on the one hand, there is no living "breathing of the audience", the proper concert experience. But on the other there is no room for concerns, everything is polished to shine (although, I must say, at concerts the quartet also sounds so smoothly that sometimes it seems almost unbelievable)...
Domestic price: 133.85UAH, International price: $12.28USD

Kyiv saxophone quartet. Swing cocktail. Live in Concert. /digi-pack/.


"Swing Cocktail" is a present for all those who love the emotions of "live" recordings and, respectively, concert features of performance of evergreens. Moreover, this time the purely saxophone composition has been expanded on the album, you will have a chance to hear the clarinet, piano, bass, and drums. They do not sound in every piece in this case, these are rather spices.
Domestic price: 133.85UAH, International price: $12.28USD

Sax Kings. Classics & Jazz. Live in concert. /digi-pack/.


The album is a collection of concert recordings and here, you will find not only jazz evergreens performed by the saxophone quartet, which would be quite natural. As evident from the title "Classics & Jazz", half of the album is composed of classical pieces Bach, Purcell, Bizet and this is, admittedly, very specific pleasure.
Domestic price: 133.85UAH, International price: $12.28USD

Gregory Nemirovsky. Mirages.


...the silent poetry of the atmospheric, almost supernatural winds appeared against the background of clear, transparent rhythms and sometimes fluctuating, changeable bass and key lines. This music seems to pull into some mystic circle, however it also tears, transforms it with sporadic emotional splashes, does not let it calm down melancholically, provokes attention.
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

UpSide 3. Octopus.


A trio is an optimum option when you have a lot of topics for a conversation, but at the same time you need brevity. And this is a challenge. Reduction of the composition has logically resulted in that sounding of all the instruments involved acquired more voluminous tints (...) Refined and simple, free and expressive this program has already had time to acquire the name of a "truly European" one.
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Vitaliy Ivanov Quartet. Returning live.


It sounds as very delicate, intelligent combination of clear feelings and attentive reflections. All through the time while the disc sounds, one has the haunting feeling that the musicians realize themselves and the space around literally at every second and are able to instantly react to its every motion, because they have inside a full degree of freedom and mastery.
Domestic price: 166.55UAH, International price: $15.28USD

Kaktus Fresh. Kaktus in Kolo live.


Thus, the concert within the project Jazz-Kolo, April, 2007. First, you will not find here cliché standards authors' compositions by our musicians sound here only. And secondly pay attention to the participants list...

Skhid-Side. SkhidSideMen. /digi-pack/


It is musicians of the group that said about their "SkhidSideMen" album that the world had seen pure jazz. I won't argue as personally I had exactly the same feeling about this music. The feeling of pure, fair, simple in its wisdom fire...
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Skhid-Side. Brand New.


...they say that it is exactly the album "Brand New" of exactly East-Side that is the best jazz music album of 2005 in Ukraine. Everybody will decide by himself how much it corresponds to the reality.
Domestic price: 467.83UAH, International price: $42.92USD

Mikolaj Trzaska, Studio theater "Arabesque". Krytychni dni. Music for performance. (Periods)


...just before one's eyes. That is, when listening to, for example, the play "Two women who have not seen each other for a long time" you will clearly see the women, and a small square where they met, the color of their hair and temperaments, will be able to discern the voice of each of them. Such expressiveness of performance really thrills.
Domestic price: 217.13UAH, International price: $19.92USD

Igor Dyachenko. A Soulful Sax. One Session in Kiev.


Igor Djachenko is a remarkable Kyiv saxophonist with huge experience and skills that one could envy. His saxophone is not an instrument, it is a voice of a person who grieves and dances, enjoys ice cream and plants a tree near the house. As a rule...
