There are several projects with name "Vladimir" 1) Vladimir play a mix of post-rock and indie-rock akin to Mogwai, Sparklehorse or Mercury Rev. Their specific play with dynamics and melancholy render the standard laws of rock invalid. Vladimir taunt the listener with slow pieces only to surprise them with sudden full-blooded ferocity and unexpected turns; complete with trumpet.
