RSE tells us: Our friend, artist & merch guy Isaac took photos on tour of our friends. We took those photos and made this video for “Best Day” off the new double ep To All My Friends, Blood Makes The Blade Holy. If you haven’t picked up a copy yet make sure you grab it [cont.]

Slug, the MC for one of hip hop’s longest running and consistently interesting groups, has switched his style up. On Atmosphere’s When Life Gives You Lemons, You Paint That Shit Gold, he became a third person storyteller. Previously, he’d given us some of the most personal, raw and vivid lyrical content of anyone who has [cont.]

UPDATE: We have picked a winner. Candidates were selected at random, then each transported to a magical island, where each was assigned a number, and then put through a series of life threatening tests, time travel, alternate realities, and the limited use of swear words, including only “damn”, “son of a bitch”, and “sodding”.

Slug’s musical topic of choice? Slug. Perhaps not anymore. On Atmosphere’s sixth full-length release, When Life Gives You Lemons, You Paint That Shit Gold, emcee Slug steps out of his own shadow, choosing rather to expand his lyrical depth with an emphasis on character-driven dramas. Gone is the personal diary – for the most part. [cont.]

     Putting it down on the indy scene for almost ten years now, Minneapolis all-stars, Atmosphere deliver their umpteenth full-length release, finding the crew taking a back-to-basics approach. Trading the usual self-depreciating, lo-fi “emo-rap”, producer Ant and emcee Slug instead deliver hard-hitting production and 80′s emcee battle rap swagger, with a touch of “edutainment”. Fresh [cont.]

Reissue; No Rating Given.      With what has become a cult following for a group like Atmosphere, comes an inquisition of previous works. For the past half decade or so Slug and Ant have reveled in the stew of fans who simply adore Slug’s self reflective wordplay amongst producer Ant’s evolving backdrops. But many of [cont.]

   After leaving a slew of lunch tabs on the expense accounts of major label reps, Atmosphere promptly dashed their prospective hopes (GASFACE) and instead inked a deal with the rock based imprint Epitaph. While the move surprised some, there’s no disputing that Seven’s Travels is Atmosphere’s most-important record to date, as it finds the group and [cont.]

Irony, pain, vulnerability, and insanity are apparent in the title before the listener hears the album. This is not music you pipe into the background at a party to boost the ambiance. This is real music – the cries of a tortured soul who lacks the ability to express himself any other way. It becomes [cont.]

 Worshipped as gods of super-white genius rap with the release of The Overcast, Atmosphere’s direction has taken a slightly different turn with the release of its Lucy Ford LP. While several years have passed since The Overcast loomed over listener’s heads, in that time, Atmosphere’s lead emcee, Slug, has taken things to a much more [cont.]

I’m not going to front – I like this two-EP project even if I wasn’t one of the DJs named on the “Just Tryin’ To Make Friends With Your Deejay” (note to Atmosphere - I better be on your next installment). While it’s the type of hyperactive, self-enthused hip-hop that just screams “midwest” and/or “white”, there’s [cont.]
