"Champion Music for the Heartbroken" is how Bryndon Cook, who records as Starchild, describes Crucial, his first EP for Ghostly. It's easy to hear what he means: Starchild creates songs that draw equally on electro and R&B, and at the center of every one of them is an undeniable twinge of sadness. Crucial is Starchild's "special thing," an album that synthesizes his experience and influences – from the go-go, soul, gospel and jazz he absorbed while living in the D.C./Maryland/Virginia area to the soundtrack of his teen years: Usher, Ciara, OutKast and Soulja Boy.

Soft, twinkling opening track "All My Lovers" provides the album's backbone. "Slammin' Mannequin," a booming, Ready For The World-like number, came "while watching my all time favorite cartoon, Hey Arnold," Starchild says. Overall, Crucial is, as its name implies, an essential document of the emotional landscape of Starchild's heart. "I always appreciated music that lent a helping hand and said, ‘Hey, are you with me? Because I am with you,'" he adds. "I hope I can do that for someone, somewhere. If I'm lucky."
