Victoire, a Brooklyn-based band founded by composer Missy Mazzoli, has a distinct sound that harks back to the age of the gramophone (Victoire was once called "Victrola", but RCA shut that down pretty quickly) but in a modern setting. Strings, clarinets and keyboards sweep around sounds ranging from sewing machines and answering machine tapes into what has been called "minimalist, post-rock bliss."

Thanks for the awesome music. I listened to it during the last two weeks. I really love "A Song for Arthur Russell", fascinating sounds ;).

Hope to hear more of you,
Michael
