    Listen: Laurie Anderson Talks with 'Talk Art' Podcast
    Jim Cass

    Laurie Anderson is on the latest episode of the Talk Art podcast to talk with hosts Russell Tovey and Robert Diament about her music and art. "She's just constantly inspired and constantly experimenting and expressing all these things throughout her work—beauty, time, reality, memory," says Tovey. "She does that constantly, and that is why I think she's such an important, critical artist." You can hear their conversation here:

    Laurie Anderson's NPR Tiny Desk (Home) Concert premiered yesterday and can be seen here. The set featured songs from her 1982 debut album, Big Science, which returned to vinyl for the first time in thirty years with a new red vinyl edition, released April 9 on Nonesuch Records. The album foresaw the future, mixing performance art, pop, and electronics, most hauntingly on the hit single, "O Superman." "It's worth considering how readily Big Science stands alone, untethered from time and place," says Uncut. "And how, over the course of its near-40-year existence, it has been a record that has come to acquire new resonance with each generation, now standing as one of the most influential albums of the past four decades."

    Randy Newman is a special surprise guest caller on the latest episode of Office Hours Live with Tim Heidecker. "You truly are a hero to me," Heidecker says. "You're in the Top Three. C&C Music Factory is No. 1." You can hear their conversation here. Newman's set at Newport Folk Festival's "Folk On" last Saturday was among "The 10 Best Things We Saw" there, says Rolling Stone. "Randy Newman delivered a typically powerful 19-song solo piano set ... blending his signature mix of intentionally inscrutable ambiguity, caustic satire, and gorgeously wounded romanticism."
