KEXP suggests Awesome Color and their self-titled debut which is out today!

“This Brooklyn-via-Ann Arbor band debuts with this excellent album of bluesy psych-rock, combining raw, garage-rock production with primal dirge rhythms and heavy guitar riffs along with some acid-fried solos, placing their sound somewhere between the Black Angels and the trippier side of the Stooges.” – Don Yates

Listen to a song from their debut, Awesome Color, which comes out TODAY. Listen to a few songs at their MySpace page.

We are proud to present Awesome Color at The Moore on June 30 with Sonic Youth!

There are a few other records coming out this week that we’re excited about…

Corinne Bailey Rae: Corinne Bailey Rae (Capitol)
Fatboy Slim: Greatest Hits: Why Try Harder (Astralwerks)
Feist: Open Season (Universal International)
Frank Black: Fast Man Raider Man (Back Porch)
Keane: Under the Iron Sea (Interscope)
Old 97’s: Hit by a Train: The Best of Old 97’s (Rhino)
Pearl Jam: Live at Easy Street (J Records)
Xiu Xiu: Tu Mi Piaci [EP] (Acuarela)

Check them out and we hope you enjoy!
