    Laurie Anderson and Kronos Quartet’s Landfall is out now. Inspired by her experience of Hurricane Sandy, Landfall is the first collaboration between the iconic storyteller/musician and the groundbreaking string quartet, who perform together on the recording. Landfall juxtaposes lush electronics and traditional strings by Kronos with Anderson's powerful descriptions of loss, from water-logged pianos to disappearing animal species to Dutch karaoke bars. The Washington Post calls it "riveting, gorgeous."

    Pianist/composer Tigran Hamasyan's five-song EP For Gyumri, his third recording on Nonesuch Records, is now available. "I believe that our childhood experience shapes who we become when we grow into adulthood," says Hamasyan. "For Gyumri is an ode to my birthplace, the town that nourished my childhood world with great experiences and made me who I am." He begins a tour in Vancouver tonight, followed by stops in Portland, Chicago, and NYC in the coming weeks.

Artist Spotlight

  • Crack-Up, Fleet Foxes' highly anticipated third album, comes six years after the release of Helplessness Blues. "Rewarding, involving, and meticulous," says the AP, "Crack-Up has been well worth the wait." "Likely to be the most remarkable album you will hear this year," exclaims the Times (UK). "The return of one of the most original bands of this century." Pitchfork calls it "their most complex and compelling album to date."

  • Robert Plant's eleventh studio album, Carry Fire, produced by Plant in the west of England and Wales, melds unusual rhythms with naturalism. As with his 2014 album, lullaby and… The Ceaseless Roar, the album features his band The Sensational Space Shifters. They are also joined here by special guests, including Chrissie Hynde.

  • David Byrne's album American Utopia morphed during the writing and recording process, beginning with Brian Eno and growing to include collaboration with producer Rodaidh McDonald and contributors Daniel Lopatin (aka Oneohtrix Point Never), Jam City, Thomas Bartlett (aka Doveman), Jack Peñate, and others.

  • Nonesuch will release Jonny Greenwood's score to Paul Thomas Anderson's film Phantom Thread, after their earlier collaborations There Will Be Blood, The Master, and Inherent Vice. Nonesuch also released his score for Norwegian Wood; his album with Polish composer Krzysztof Penderecki; Junun, his album with Shye Ben Tzur and the Rajasthan Express; and his recording of Steve Reich's Electric Counterpoint.

  • Steve Reich has been hailed as “America’s greatest living composer” (The Village Voice), “the most original musical thinker of our time” (The New Yorker), and “among the great composers of the century” (New York Times). “There’s just a handful of living composers who can legitimately claim to have altered the direction of musical history," states the Guardian, "and Steve Reich is one of them."
