Datura4 - Hairy Mountain, released on Alive-Naturalsound.
Last year, Datura4, from Fremantle, Western Australia, brought together Dom Mariani (frontman of legendary Australian garage band The Stems and Power Pop favourites DM3) and Greg Hitchcock (You Am I, The Kryptonics, The Monarchs) along with Drummer Warren Hall (ex-Drones) and bassist Stu Loasby for a astonishing debut full length intitled “Demon Blues” that was released on Alive-Naturalsound.
Almost one year later and with another beautiful psychedelic cover art, done by Joshua Marc Levy/Asheville Art Family, Alive-Naturalsound is releasing "Hairy Mountain", the sophomore effort of the band.
Their previous record, was great but this one is a real masterpiece. And this is no wonder since this band knows how to write brilliant and ultra catchy songs. You hear them once and they get stuck in your head for days.
This record is filled with fat and
heavy 70s guitars riffs, tremolo and wha-wha maestria, tight and groovy rhythm section and -most important- great songs with plenty of hooks and sing-a-long choruses. But it is not about revival or nostalgia of a past era. On the contrary, it is absolutely fresh and lively. It is a real heavy pop record in the truest and most honest sense of the word. A record you gotta LOVE. Favorite tracks "Mary Carroll Park",
"Confide in me" and "Fools Gold Rush".
