On their third album and first release since 2007, Iceland’s Kimono returns to the public stage as a trio. But while the group may have been pared down in personnel, their urgent fusion of mathematically enhanced progressive post-punk remains as vital as ever across the nine tracks that comprise Easy Music for Difficult People. Recorded live in the studio over the course of a long summer weekend in Reykjavik, this is a raw, intense listening experience that’s as uncompromising as the winters these guys get in their neck of the woods. The only difference is that the storms that Kimono conjure up will leave you looking forward to the next inclement forecast every time.
