12th Letter ft. Frank Ryan - Higher

Litewrks Creative
Hear No Evil, Music To My Ears LP

Hold on to your fitteds, Booth readers, because this one’s a shocker: despite bearing the title “Higher” and being the work of an artist whose stage name is a thinly-veiled reference to spliffs, The 12th Letter‘s first Booth feature is not (entirely) about smoking weed. Instead, the record is a motivational jam exhorting listeners to shoot for the stars and make their dreams into reality. Not that lovers of Mary Jane will be disappointed; flowing over Litewrks Creative‘s driving electronic grooves, the headliner’s peppers his uplifting bars with drug-related innuendo, and hookman Frank Ryan makes the analogy explicit on the outro. Has 12th succeeded in elevating your mindstate with his first Booth feature? More fresh and innovative tunes await on debut full-length Hear No Evil | Music to My Ears, out digitally as of—you guessed it—December 12, 2012.
