Excerpt

Laurie Anderson's film Heart of a Dog, which began its theatrical run at the Film Forum in NYC last month, has extended its run there, and opens at the Nuart in LA, where Anderson will participate in Q&A sessions this weekend. It also opens in additional theaters in New York and New Jersey and will been shown at the Virginia Film Festival in Charlottesville on Friday. The Los Angeles Times calls it "transfixing," saying it's Anderson's spirit, "beautifully inquisitive, witty, open, lyrical and generous—that makes Heart of a Dog so dreamily memorable." The film will open in more theaters across the country in the coming weeks. The soundtrack is available everywhere now on Nonesuch Records.

Laurie Anderson's new film, Heart of a Dog, which began its theatrical run at the Film Forum in New York City last month to critical praise, has extended its run at the Film Forum and expands to additional theaters in the United States this weekend, opening at the Nuart Theatre in Los Angeles; Symphony Space in New York City; Jacob Burns Film Center in Pleasantville, Time & Space Limited in Hudson, Cinema Arts Centre in Huntington, New York; and Clairidge Cinema in Montclair, New Jersey. Anderson will participate in Q&A sessions and introduce the film at select screenings at the Nuart as well. Having been screened at the Telluride, Venice, Toronto, New York, and London Film Festivals earlier this year, Heart of a Dog will also be shown at the Virginia Film Festival in Charlottesville on Friday.

"Like a docent of the soul, Laurie Anderson guides us through the often confounding and illuminating stages of love, death and loss in Heart of a Dog, a transfixing personal essay inspired by her rat terrier Lolabelle, who died four years ago," writes the Los Angeles Times film reviewer Robert Abele in advance of this weekend's opening. "It's the renowned multimedia artist's first feature since the 1986 concert film Home of the Brave, and it's a welcome return."

Abele goes on to describe the film as "that rarest of pieces, an unabashedly experimental work that's as inviting as a visit with an old friend," concluding that it's Anderson's spirit, "beautifully inquisitive, witty, open, lyrical and generous—that makes Heart of a Dog so dreamily memorable."

Heart of a Dog will open in additional theaters in California, Massachusetts, Maine, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, and Washington, DC, later this month and still more in the months that follow. For all the details and tickets, visit heartofadogfilm.com. It also will be shown on HBO in 2016.

The soundtrack is out now on Nonesuch Records, available on iTunes and the Nonesuch Store, where CD orders include a download of the complete album at checkout.

    The first recordings of Steve Reich’s Runner (2016) and Music for Ensemble and Orchestra (2018), performed by the Los Angeles Philharmonic and conducted by Susanna Mälkki, are out now digitally and on CD; vinyl is due December 2. The New York Times calls Runner “a calmly luminous orchestral piece with the pulsating, propulsive rhythms that animate much of Mr. Reich’s music.” The San Francisco Chronicle says that Music for Ensemble and Orchestra “is a beautiful and dramatically charged masterpiece, but its impact goes even further than that.”

    Seven special editions of Wilco's landmark 2002 album Yankee Hotel Foxtrot are out now. The now-classic record has been remastered and is available in each set. The Super Deluxe version has eleven vinyl LPs and one CD—including demos, drafts, and instrumentals, charting the making of Yankee Hotel Foxtrot—plus a live 2002 concert recording and a September 2001 radio performance and interview. That box set includes 82 previously unreleased music tracks as well as a new book featuring an interview with Jeff Tweedy, Glenn Kotche, and Jim O’Rourke; an in-depth essay by journalist/author Bob Mehr; and previously unseen photos of the band making the album in their Chicago studio. You can take a look inside in an unboxing video here. Pitchfork gives the set a perfect 10: "A sprawling new box set full of demos and alternate takes suggests a dazzling array of paths the Chicago group might have taken on their masterpiece."
