Ah, the perfect middle ground. You could say that Australian quartet Datura4play highway rock, stoner metal, chill doom or downer chug, and you’d be right on all fronts, the band striking that perfect spot between overdriven and stripped down. Mother Medusa brings all sand-scattered windows-down attitude you could ask for, featuring an awesome central riff, some cardboard-ish opening toms, and a writhing harmonized solo in the middle that sounds like the hair of the song’s namesake. Will make you feel like you’re in the sweet, sweet outdoors.
Datura4’s West Coast Highway Cosmic comes out April 17.
