    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."

    Jonny Greenwood's Academy Award–nominated score to Paul Thomas Anderson's Phantom Thread is now available on CD, following its digital release earlier this year and ahead of the double-LP vinyl release on April 20. "This is startlingly expansive music," says the Guardian's Bim Adewunmi, "liable to make the listener believe they can leap buildings in a single bound, and when the strings sweep in, in the middle of 'House of Woodcock,' it’s all I can do to remain tethered to the Earth." IndieWire calls it "a masterpiece," the year's best score and one of the century's best as well.
