"One of the Year's Best under-the-radar
underground LP's- Black Colors is a stunner.. dazzling...a sonic kaleidoscope" - Pitchfork

One of The Wire UK's top "Outer Limit" albums of 2013.

" I can’t think of anything else like his shapeshifting mélange of guitar noise, which sounds simultaneously like rock riffing, abstract aggression, electronic sculpture and minimalist exercise.

Kolovos achieves this mix completely by improvisation… he claims to plan nothing in advance…the resulting patterns are so fluid, often seeming to change from one listen to the next. But once you’ve grasped them, the permutations are like pathways in a maze rather than deceptive mirages… he fuses such connected sounds without shackling them to each other.

Gradually the broad strokes behind behind his splatter become clear, the way obscured objects sharpen as your pupil widen. In the process, the music seems to slow and time begins to freeze."

- Marc Masters, The Wire Magazine U.K.
