★★★½ 3 and half star review for DATURA4 “Hairy Mountain” from ALL MUSIC

The 2016 sophomore studio long-player from the bluesy Aussie psych-rockers, Hairy Mountain delivers another muscular blast of lovingly retooled classic rock that bristles with electric, down-under eccentricity. Similar in tone to the Sword, Thin Lizzy, Cream, Electric Wizard, and Blue Öyster Cult-loving High Country that, like Datura4’s debut, arrived the year prior, Hairy Mountain ultimately […]

Listen to the premiere of RADIO MOSCOW’s “250 Miles/Brain Cycles (Live)” via ALL MUSIC

​Blues-rock trio Radio Moscow blends two of their tunes together in this cut from their upcoming live album, Live! In California.

On their debut album, 2015’s Demon Blues, Datura4 reel off a broad range of stylistic influences that almost entirely reach back to […]

Listen to JAMES LEG’s “Below The Belt” via ALL MUSIC

The new album from musician James Leg, also known as one half of the rowdy blues/punk/soul hybrid Black Diamond Heavies, could pass as the soundtrack to some sort of immoral revivalist service. His second solo record, Below the Belt is built around Leg’s thick keyboard sound, driving drums and his wildly charismatic and gruff vocal […]
