    Watch: Laurie Anderson, Kronos Quartet Share New "Landfall" Video

    Laurie Anderson and Kronos Quartet have shared two new tracks from their forthcoming album, Landfall: "The Water Rises" and "Our Street Is a Black River." Both can be downloaded now with pre-orders of the album on iTunes and in the Nonesuch Store, along with the previously released album track "We Learn to Speak Yet Another Language." Nonesuch Store pre-orders also include an exclusive, limited-edition print autographed by Anderson. The new songs can also be heard on Apple Music and Spotify, and in the video below.

    Landfall, which was inspired by Anderson’s experience of Hurricane Sandy, 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 strings 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."

    Vagabon (aka Lætitia Tamko)’s self-titled sophomore album is out now on CD and digitally, with vinyl coming soon. "Vagabon chronicles a life enriched, and made complicated, by stepping into new contexts," writes the New Yorker. "Each song on Vagabon feels like a small world." "Her songs embrace mixed, elusive emotions," writes the New York Times: "longing and ambivalence, displacement and stability, seeking a home and leaving it behind, confronting fears and searching for hope." It's an "indie-pop masterpiece," Clash exclaims, "simply captivating from start to finish ... The work of an immensely talented melodic mastermind, Laetitia Tamko's second album touches on the magical."

His new album, Ma, is "awesome," says Eliscu, "his best album in a minute, kind of a return to form and a reminder of all of the heart and soul in his music." Of their conversation, she says: "It was great to get to talk with my dear old friend about stuff we've never gotten to before. You don't always get to ask your friends such nerdy questions as I do in this convo ... I was so curious to know about how this incredibly interesting and unique artist ended up sounding the way he does." Hear what he had to say here.
