Awesome Color Electric Aborigines

  • Words: Scott Thill
  • Label: Ecstatic Peace
  • XLR8R Rating: 8/10

Long live rawk. This upstart trio brings the noise and riffage with aplomb, smashing your face to the glass of your time machine with a smile. Take-no-prisoners chargers like "Already Down" make you want to find a slam pit and hit it, while freak-out episodes like "Eyes of Light" might make Caustic Resin and Comets on Fire patent their guitar solos, to say nothing of Jimmy Page or Jimi Hendrix. They stumble a bit, ironically enough, on the trouble funk of "Step Up," but they catch themselves with the balanced assault of "Outside Tonight" and sludge of "Evil Rose." As a whole, the meat of Electric Aborigines is a rewarding feast for what's left of your ears.
