Review of Electric Aborigines in CMJ: "These Brooklyn buzz-bringers mostly make like lost hate children of Roky Erickson on their sophomore slab. Right out the gate (or the swinging bar doors), the first two songs feel like a fevered drive out of an urban jungle with syncopated drums, drawled snotty-to-weary vocals and fuzz-frantic codas that are off to who knows where."

Some reviews of Awesome Color's latest, Electric Aborigines

Detour Magazine: "a hoary, explosive blast of garaged-up scuzz and punk rock damage that bled in every color imaginable, and some that weren’t. For fans of the electric guitar, Awesome Color doesn’t disappoint...these three must have a time machine shaped like a Gibson SG." read more here.
