I first discovered Crete Boom on Jamendo about six years ago. I really dug “The Spyin Blues” from their 2009 release Them Bones Need Oxygen EP and decided to check out some of their other offerings. Years later, I frequently return to their music catalogue. Today, I will be reviewing their 2008 EP Navy and Grey.

Navy and Grey is a 5-track EP featuring five aurally pleasing songs with a distinct 60’s and 70’s Soul Rock vibe. Although I don’t regularly listen to this music genre outside of a handful of artists, I find that Crete Boom expertly delivers songs reminiscent of an era when bands like Grand Funk Railroad and Steppenwolf received heavy airplay. I highly recommend that folks check out the EP as well as some of their other offerings on Jamendo, Bandcamp and Soundcloud.
