What a pleasant surprise to wake up and see this wonderful album being released today! Texas’s own Crypt Trip are back with “Haze Country” released on Heavy Psych Sounds Records.
First off lemme tell you the follow up before listening to this album. So I’ve been on an old outlaw country kick lately so when I discovered this it’s like everything was coming full circle!
Right when you play this album it throws you right into the golden era of old country and rock n roll starting with “Forward” which is also an instrumental, there’s actually a couple instrumentals on this album but they’re nice, they kinda break up the album quite nice.
Some stand out tracks for me are “To Be Whole”, “Free Rain” and “16 Ounce Blues.” All of these tracks are super diverse, one minute you’ll be be up on a mountain with Led Zeppelin then one minute you’ll be riding a horse with Waylon Jennings. And to be honest I love it, it’s been awhile since I’ve heard a stoner rock album that’s been influenced by old country and even a hint of rockabilly.
So if you haven’t already go check out this album and go buy their new color vinyls and go support them on tour!
Today I’m giving this album a 9/10 here on Mammoth Tongue Reviews.
