    Laurie Anderson and Kronos Quartet's first collaboration, Landfall, due February 16, is streaming in full till then as an NPR First Listen. In the piece, inspired by Anderson's experience of Hurricane Sandy, "she doesn't revisit the storm so much as ruminate—sometimes with dry wit—on the idea of how we handle loss," says NPR's Tom Huizenga. "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."

    Paul Thomas Anderson was on NPR's Fresh Air to discuss his new film, Phantom Thread, including Jonny Greenwood's score, which is "great," says host Terry Gross. The music "is so good," she tells Anderson. "There's something so operatic about the movie because there's underscoring throughout almost the entire film. So there's almost always music playing. And it's often not playing quietly in the background. It's pretty upfront much of the time."
