Victoire, a Brooklyn based quintet of female alt-classical performers, is currently doing a mini tour in the Midwest to support the impending September release of their album Cathedral City on New Amsterdam. Matt Marks and Mellissa Hughes are taking their show on the road, performing selections from Matt’s opera Little Death Vol. 1.

Missy Mazzoli and company have been kind enough to allow us to share the title track from the LP on File Under ?’s Tumblr here. The track combines vocalizing courtesy of Missy with skittering glitchy percussion and a somewhat jazzy harmonic background. Kind of like Julee Cruise meets BoaC on Steely Dan’s patio, sharing drinks with Matmos

  1. …and yet, there’s something of early Phil Glass in this track of Missy’s that is also very infectious. I really should just keep my big mouth shut till I’ve listened through an entire track. ;-)

  2. I think they overdid the drinks.

    (and yes, I believe I just broke one of my rules of blogging as seen in the flame war over Nicco Muhly. Maybe John Adams is right…)
