Tonight: Awesome Color at the Mink
"Eyes of Light"
Damn. Wasn't that something? Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore indirectly turned me on to Awesome Color, a terrifying trio from the wilds of northern Michigan. AC is one of the artists on Moore's Universal-distributed label, Ecstatic Peace, and released the self-explanatory LP Electric Aborigines earlier this year. Seriously, the band's sound is much easier to describe than Sonic Youth's, and maybe anyone else's: Imagine the Stooges took way, way too much brown acid. That's it.
