Missy Mazzoli's Victoire
Show Description"Consuming and arresting"
"So good... a pleasingly accessible entree into the world of pseudo-classical music"
On October 2nd all-female chamber-rock quintet Victoire comes to Joe's Pub to celebrate the release of their debut album Cathedral City on New Amsterdam Records. The album is the follow up to their critically-acclaimed EP A Door Into The Dark, which was handpicked for release last spring through eMusic's exclusive "Selects" series. City was written by Victoire founder/composer/performer Missy Mazzoli and features guest appearances from Bryce Dessner of The National, acclaimed composer/performer William Brittelle and versatile vocalist Mellissa Hughes.Mazzoli founded Victoire in 2007 and the ensemble of Brooklyn-based, classically-trained women has proven to be the perfect vehicle for her distinctive blend of post-rock dreamscapes and quirky minimalism. Deemed "one of the most surprising composers now working in New York" by The New York Times and "Brooklyn's Post-Millennial Mozart" by Time Out New York, Missy fuses lo-fi electronics, keyboards, strings and winds into works that are extraordinarily complex yet delicately beautiful.
