Yeah Yeah Yeahs, ‘Is Is’

New YYYThe new Yeah Yeah Yeahs EP Is Is is out, and it kind of reminds me why they were worth lis­ten­ing to in the first place.

From Pitch­fork:

Each aspect of her (Karen O’s) stage iden­ti­ty finds equal expres­sion on these songs, which only makes them sound more imme­di­ate and affect­ing. In fact, Is Is may be their most instant­ly acces­si­ble release, which is not a crit­i­cal dig but just a way of say­ing it finds a good bal­ance between alien­at­ing and invit­ing, between song and performance.

It was pro­duced by Aus­tralian Nick Lau­nay (who record­ed Gang of Four, Killing Joke, and Pub­lic Image Ltd). Not too shabby.

8/10 — iTunes
