Nice review of DATURA4 “Hairy Mountain” from The VINYL DISTRICT


This Western Australian four-piece specializes in psych-blues-boogie, and they’ve been cited as extending the musical mores of their countrymen Buffalo, The Aztecs, and Coloured Balls; featuring the dual guitars of Dom Mariani (of the Stems and DM3) and Greg Hitchcock (who was briefly in the New Christs), this sophomore effort shines brightest in direct proportion to its pedal-induced amp burn, of which there is a surplus. The songs are more than just vessels for flights of controlled distortion though, and the rhythm section hits hard throughout. – THE VINYL DISTRICT
