Homecoming #3

"She's as authoritative as a planetarium guide, part HAL, part GPS, with the faintest whisper of wry, amused detachment."

(Sam McPheeters on Laurie Anderson, Chicago Reader)

Sam McPheeters writes about how it felt to listen to Laurie Anderson in 1984 and how it does in 2011; along with a description of 'Delusion' that was recently debuted in Chicago, plus a rough (but very amusing) discography in which he put Laurie's albums from different eras of her three-decade-long career parallel with the actual zeitgeist. Read it in the Chicago Reader: A Space Age Home Companion.
