• datura4 Hairy Mountain (CD, £12.50)

    label: alive

    Rock 'n' Roll fans: please welcome the second album from West Australia s Datura4. Building upon the " guitars-to-infinity" approach of Datura4's acclaimed debut LP Demon Blues, Hairy Mountain is ten solid tracks celebrating an unbridled joy for rock 'n' roll, with a nod to the spiritual presence of their hairy Oz Rock forefathers. Hairy Mountain is the culmination of a lifetime of musical archaeology and the ongoing search for the never ending riff. It's the brainchild of Dom Mariani (frontman of Australian garage rockers The Stems and Power Posters DM3) and Greg Hitchcock (former You Am I and one-time New Christs guitarist), and their new full-tilt boogie, psych and prog combo Datura4. - BLURT. Throwback in the best possible way, the way you can go to some underground club in your nearest big city and see kick-ass rockers throwing it down like it was 1972. But unlike those amateurs, Datura4 is the real deal. In Mariani and Hitchcock, it has the pedigree. - UNDER THE RADAR. Elements of hard-lined blues remain evident, but are primarily smoothed out by a dominant, free-formed 70s psych sparsity. Those sprawling soundscapes themselves threaten explosive outbreaks yet are reigned in further with a defining boogie, a heavy footstep of swagger that sets a more contemporary course. - Rolling Stone Australia.
