“Blessed is the Boogie” is the eagerly anticipated third album by Western Australian rockers Datura4.
Fronted by Aussie legend Dom Mariani, who came to prominence on the music scene in the 1980s with legendary garage rock combo The Stems, and later went on to form revered power pop outfits DM3 and The Someloves, Datura4 is Mariani’s return to his blues and heads-down, full-tilt boogie roots.
“Blessed is the Boogie” is ten new songs that build on Datura4’s ‘guitars to infinity’ approach of “Hairy Mountain” (2016) and the hard rocking, progressive blues and psychedelic stylings of debut LP “Demon Blues” (2015). Both albums were released through Alive NaturalSound Records and gained critical acclaim at home, in Europe and the USA.
Blessed Is the Boogie certainly wears the group’s debt to John Lee Hooker and other boogie masters proudly on its sleeve. But tracks such as “Not For Me” and “Cat on a Roof” are more expansive and compositionally ambitious, while the acoustic-flavored “City of Lights” hews toward some of Mariani’s power-pop background. – BILLBOARD
HERE'S WHAT CRITICS HAVE BEEN SAYING ABOUT DATURA4 :
As with pretty much anything else Mariani explores, he succeeds handily here – his sense of melody never deserts him, regardless of setting. It may not be the DM3, but Datura4 is just as true an expression of Mariani’s musical will as anything he’s ever done. – BLURT
Builds in true '70s psych-rock form, swirling from guitar-led turmoil to shoegaze clearings of reflection. – ROLLING STONE AU
Has a firm grasp on garage psych and progressive blues rock. – CLASSIC ROCK
A cross between chilled out Psych rock, blues and fuzzy 1960s garage rock n roll. – MAXIMUM VOLUME MUSIC
They may be from beyond the Black Stump, but this album is ripper. Fire up the mull and tell me I’m wrong. – GET READY TO ROCK
