From the review: “The composer and keyboardist Missy Mazzoli has a thing for unlikely connections and startling gestures, and one of her gifts is the ability to tease out the hidden logic behind her choices. Her ravishing, unsettling album “Vespers for a New Dark Age” unfolds as a meditation on technology and spirituality, alienation and self-interest.”
