★★★★ review of LEFT LANE CRUISER “Dirty Spliff Blues” in BLURT MAGAZINE


The Upshot: Gritty blues-punk trio crafts heavy anthems for the nu-hemp generation.

Big things are happening in the world of Left Lane Cruiser, first off all since their last record weed has been legalized in Colorado (they move here yet?) and judging by the cover of this record, their 5th for the Alive Natural Sound records, that makes them very happy. Another thing is that the band has added a member. Yes, after plastering venues as a duo they are now a trio, adding Joe Brent on bass (on the inside over he’s shown holding his skateboard as opposed to his bass guitar so I like the guy already). – READ THE WHOLE REVIEW ON THE BLURT SITE

★★★★½ review of DATURA4 “Demon Blues” in the SYDNEY MORNING HERALD


Dom Mariani’s (the Stems, Someloves​, the Domnicks​) debut Datura4 LP features one-time You Am I and New Christs guitarist Greg Hitchcock and they’re a rock ‘n’ roll marriage made in heaven. Originally coming together in 2011, Demon Blues represents the pair’s unbridled passion for guitar-soaked boogie and giant riffs that get up in ya face from album opener Out With the Tide and stay there through the garage stomp of `60s-heavy You Ain’t No Friend of Mine to the lazy, hazy psych of Another Planet. – SYDNEY MORNING HERALD

DaveDiMartino’s review of DATURA4 “Demon Blues”


An Australian combo featuring one-time members of the Stems, DM3, the New Christs and You Am I, Datura4 have taken all that is good about the shrieking and pounding that sonically preceded them, refined it via the garage, and on tracks like “Another Planet” emerged with something resembling soft-rockers America covering “Spirit In The Sky.” As sell-outs go? That’s hip. A great find for Alive Naturalsound, and a better one for you. Find ‘em, fool ‘em, but don’t Forget ‘em. – DaveDiMartino
