So, yeah, Halloween came and went this past Friday, but that doesn’t mean we can’t all still get spooked once in a while, right? Of course not. And the same goes for listening to the music that typically emanates from speakers around Oct. 31. Sure, it makes more sense when the ghouls and goblins are walking about, but if the music is actually good enough—read: not just a cheap gimmick—then it’s good anytime.
Like this new EP from left field-dwelling artists Mr. Yote and Yungeth Dre. Their Frank & Stein project is clearly made for the creepier days, but it’s also just a solid cold-weather listen with its murky production (courtesy of Yote himself save for the final track). The same goes for the gritty raps from Yote and Dre, who definitely sound natural rapping side by side.
They have done so before, fittingly enough on the track “Frank & Stein” off Yote’s ¡itisi! EP (Deca Version). But they have never sounded better than on here, as I’m confident in saying that this is some of their strongest work to date. Yeah, I can’t wait to hear what’s next.
