Minnesota’s premier hip-hop duo return with another intricate widescreen production...

Minnesota’s premier hip-hop duo follow-up the mega-selling ‘When Life Gives You Lemons’ with another intricate widescreen production. While Sean ‘Slug’ Daley’s heartfelt lyrics, reflecting humorously on fatherhood, love and loss, are given full vent by producer Ant, the addition once again of keyboardist Erick Anderson and guitarist Nate Collis brings Atmosphere’s trademark sound to another level. Collis’ bluesy, spindly guitar riffs and Anderson’s rippling piano give extra credence to cautionary tales of domestic abuse and heartache while Slug’s POV, a million miles removed from the shallow bling of mainstream hip-hop, remains refreshingly honest and inventive.
