"Murky post rock duo Velvet Breasts (from Saint Petersburg, Russia) are a band who wear Velvet Underground influences out on their sleeves and inside some of the tracks too - they even have a song called White Light.

They have a sparse drum kit that is used to punctuate, and beat into strict direction, a guitarist who plays the same needling lines as Lou Reed, searching for a gap in the percussion to spike down hard on and let rip with some howling feedback and free running riffing. There's a variety of styles chopped out and jammed from the amps, a combination of teasing post-rockisms and harder body jerking aggression; of open duelling interplay, improvisations that sway woozily between determined coherence and able texture heavy ambience - leaning heavily on delay and reverb pedals they fill up the space with an engaging horizon on which distant shapes are scratched out, emerging warily from clouds of feedback and static; slowly pulling focus before crescendoing into stark clarity. When their tracks open out they really pull."
