    Listen: Laurie Anderson, Kronos Quartet's "Landfall" Streaming in Full As NPR First Listen
    Mark Allan

    Laurie Anderson and Kronos Quartet's first collaboration, Landfall, is due out on Nonesuch next Friday, February 16. But you don't need to wait till then to hear it: the album is streaming in full now as an NPR First Listen at npr.org/firstlisten.

    "Hurricane Sandy was a horrific natural disaster that no one would care to relive, except perhaps for the brilliant polymath Laurie Anderson," writes NPR's Tom Huizenga. In the new piece, "she doesn't revisit the storm so much as ruminate—sometimes with dry wit—on the idea of how we handle loss. With a dream-like blend of electronics, acoustic instruments, high-tech software and voice overs, she searches for meaning in the mystery of it all."

    Landfall is available to pre-order on iTunes and in the Nonesuch Store with an instant download of four tracks. Nonesuch Store pre-orders also include an exclusive, limited-edition print autographed by Anderson.

    The acclaimed trio Mountain Man's first album in eight years, Magic Ship, is out now. The record includes eleven originals plus interpretations of songs by Ted Lucas and Michael Hurley, and a traditional hymn—"intimate, close-harmony songs that tap into an ageless essence of traditional ballads and lullabies as they contemplate companionship, family, love and death," says the New York Times. Nonesuch Store CD and vinyl orders include an exclusive signed print while supplies last; bundle options include an exclusive tote bag. The trio will be at Rough Trade in Brooklyn on September 24 and will tour the US this fall.
