When Was The Last Time You Played This Album?

Laurie Anderson “Big Science”

Today’s Cool Album of the Day is Laurie Anderson, “Big Science.”

I’ve always liked musicians that try and do something differently. But I loved musicians that do something differently and actually come up with good music! There IS a difference!!

Laurie Anderson can really be ‘out there’ sometimes. But she has a vision and can bring it to life. Some would refer to her as a ‘minimalist.’ Feel free if pigeonholing is your thing.

Big Science was her first release and I believe, still her most popular.
It was released in 1982 and featured the eight minute haunting track, ‘O Superman (For Massenet).’

She later went on to do some more interesting works with the likes of Peter Gabriel and Adrian Belew.

She has just released a new album on Nonesuch called “Homeland.” Feel free to pick up a copy at your local Ma + Pa record store today!
