OK, a bit of an explanation here.....one of my all time faves is the legendary stoner rock monster called
Datura, they also morphed into Arc of Ascent, they made a pair of albums, featured here long ago (I'm sure they are gone, the masterpiece is titled "Allisone", the follow up was "Visions For the Celestial".....both stoner classics, maybe if you're good I'll put them up again (a member of the band wrote me long agao and thanked me for sharing the albums......what? he didn't want to sue me? or kick my ass? or screw my Mom?....nope, just thanked me for sharing those two wonderful albums (also the fab Arc of Ascent Album)....
Anyway, this is NOT about that band.....if you were to do a search, you'd find that there are several bands that use the name "Datura" or some form thereof.......which brings us to now, as John N sends us a pair of albums from the band Datura4......I didn't know what to make of them at first, they are from Austraila, and I gave them a listen, as I thought they might have something to do with "my" Datura......well, they don't, but these albums don't deserve to be dissed......good hard rock n roll, (not NEARLY as hard rocking as MY Datura, but little is).....this is not really "stoner rock", more just hard rock with a sort-of almost poppish edge to it.......AND, I like it. These are a pair of fairly solid discs, might as well do yourself a favor and check them out....."Demon Blues" is from 2015, has quite a few decent riff-rockers, "Hairy Mountain" from this year, heavies up the sound a bit, it's good, it's not MY Datura, but NO ONE is.....a pair of good albums here, compliments of John N......if you are a fan of hard rock in general, these should get it done for you.....I'm listening right now, and I'm digging them.
