Favorite ThisCrywolf: Ghosts EP Review

We would just like to preface this review by saying that Justin Phillips, AKA Crywolf, is one of the coolest people on the planet. Energetic, quirky, funny, charismatic; you can’t help but love this kid. But as awesome as he is, Crywolf’s music is even better.
 
His newest EP, Ghosts, is out today on Always Never and it is a haunting masterpiece from start to finish. The 5 track release opens with “The Moon Is Falling Down,” also the first single made public off of the EP, this dubstep gem combines filth with beautiful piano melodies and female vocals.
 
In fact, the entire EP is an ode to the ever-trending juxtaposition of sexy, smooth vocals and harder electronic sounds, which Crywolf has absolutely mastered. “Walls” and “The Home We Made Pt. II” are both amazing examples of this pairing, “Walls” using more of an electro-house feel, while “The Home We Made” returns back to the heavy bass.
 
The final two tracks, “Swimming In The Flood” and “Ghosts” are two slower tempo tracks with super sexy vibes. Overall, we give Ghosts two huge thumbs up for this incredibly mature effort from such a young producer. Go grab it on Le Castle Vania’s Always Never Records and see why we are totally obsessed with Crywolf.We would just like to preface this review by saying that Justin Phillips, AKA Crywolf, is one of the coolest people on the planet.
