4 stars ★★★★ review of DATURA4 “Hairy Mountain” from BLURT

To suggest Hairy Mountain might be Demon Blues part 2 sounds like dismissal, but it’s not inaccurate – album numero dos doesn’t futz with the formula established by the first one.

Awesome DATURA4 “Hairy Mountain” review via WORDSABOUTMUSIC

Dom Mariani and Greg Hitchcock‘s Datura 4 have released an album that says everything about the joy of electric guitar.

DATURA4 “Hairy Mountain” reviewed via TEAMROCK (Classic Rock)

Pre-70s boogie-psych from Aussie scene royalty. Australian rock often seems confined to a few monster names, but the country still boasts a thriving scene that, as Datura4’s follow-up to 2015’s Demon Blues debut clearly shows, has a firm grasp on garage psych and progressive blues rock. – READ THE REVIEW HERE

4 stars ★★★★ review of DATURA4 “Hairy Mountain” from GET READY TO ROCK

With a fairly unique blend of ganja-grooves and big, retro-vocals, Datura4 have duxed it again with “Hairy Mountain” – they may be from beyond the Black Stump, but this album is ripper. Fire up the mull and tell me I’m wrong. – READ THE REVIEW HERE
