“Superb and exceptionally intelligent” Landfall out today!

Nonesuch Records released Laurie Anderson and Kronos Quartet’s Landfall today. Check out the first reviews below and click here to stream it now or purchase a digital download, CD, or 2xLP.

“An uninterrupted stroke of imagination” – SPIN

“Finds beauty in even the darkest of disasters, a discovery that can be applied to everyday struggles” – Newsday (★★★☆)

“Loss is one of the core elements of the human psyche. It shapes us and it resonates in us. Music which powerfully evokes it chimes with us like no other.” – The Quietus

“Superb and exceptionally intelligent; nothing short of excellent… clearly in the running for HorizonVU Music’s best pick for 2018” – Horizon VU Music

“What impresses is the variety of rhythmic figures throughout the album, with some exquisitely subtle modulations. Anderson grounds the piece in the world of human emotional experience rather than material loss” – The Line Of Best Fit (8.5/10)

“Extraordinary; some of the most brilliant [music] I’ve heard in a long time:” – Blogcritics

“There is much joy to be had from an aural memorial of disaster that finds beauty and magic in a catastrophe” – Elephant Magazine  (★★★★☆)

“Immersive and cinematic: a satisfyingly cathartic listen.” – God Is In the TV (8/10)

“A hard-hitting, ambitious album: It sees [Kronos] return to their progressive, forward-thinking best combining the purity and integrity of their strings with various electronic elements and new technology… and sees the quartet operating at the height of their powers.” – musicOMH (★★★★☆)
