Summary, etc.:
Laurie Anderson and Kronos Quartet's album, inspired by her experience of Hurricane Sandy, is the first collaboration between the iconic storyteller/musician and the groundbreaking string quartet, who perform together on the recording. It juxtaposes lush electronics and traditional strings by Kronos with Anderson's powerful descriptions of loss, from waterlogged pianos to disappearing animal species to Dutch karaoke bars.
