You know a Booth debut has made a big impression when our editors remember it a year later. Such is the case with LHA's Now or Never. Though LEEHAHN is on his own this time, Shoulders of Giants is just as memorable as its predecessor. OK, so he isn't entirely alone; over his own bare-bones, yet emotional boardwork (driven by a jazzy piano riff), LEEHAHN is joined by Substantial and Steph the Sapphic Songstress. Substantial blesses the mic with his smooth, thoughtful bars, and Steph tops the record off with some soulful crooning. Between the atmospheric boardwork, Sub's substantial bars and Steph's passionate singing, I'll have no trouble remembering this one next February. Hopefully Lee doesn't make us wait that long, though!
