What are the highlights of Mabon Songs?
Since it’s a short EP, all three songs are a jam fest of heavy, unfiltered stoner blues.

The production is good, it feels more polished than their 1st album. The bass seems more pronounced; the whole EP has a fuller sound.
How is the vocal performance?
The vocals of Ryan are well suited for this blend of rock, clean and a bit raw.
Two words that describe this album.
Does the album art reflect the music?
Yes, it’s a throwback to the late 60s era of psychedelic rock; like Blue Cheer or Yardbirds.
What adult beverage do we recommend while listening to this album?
Bells Oarsman Ale. The light golden hue with citrus and sour flavors will enhance your experience with this album.
What are our final thoughts?
Crypt Trip have that special 70s psychedelic groove rock sound down to a science. They have just captured our interest with this EP and have us yearning for a full length. Let’s hope they can provide one soon while their EP is gaining momentum.
