Awesome Color, 'Electric Aborigines' (Ecstatic Peace!)

6
Electric Aborigines
Critical Mass
Label: Ecstatic Peace

by Josh Modell

A band that looks as youthfully innocent as Awesome Color shouldn't be capable of making such convincingly grizzled rock, but good Midwestern genes and a steady diet of Stooges records can apparently work miracles. The Brooklyn-via-Michigan trio's second blast of gnarled garage catharsis won't glue itself to your brain, but bottom-heavy fuzz-rockers like "Already Down" and "Come and Dance" rumble and boogie with enough immediacy that future listens are a distant concern. Even though it looks longingly at the '70s, Electric Aborigines is all about the moment.
