About this Event

Award-winning independent hip-hop group Atmosphere is noted for confessional, savvy and oft-times uplifting lyrical rhymes about life dealings—reflections on the daily grind, depression, angst, touring, love—and has shirked the popular trend of self-aggrandizing rap and material obsession for more introspective pastures, which has earned the group an increasing global fan-base in the two-plus decades of its existence

Yet the world is a vastly different place than it was just a few years ago, and Atmosphere’s seventh album, Mi Vida Local, reflects the ways in which the world, and Atmosphere’s place in it¬, has changed. The idyllic domesticity of their past few records has morphed into anxiety over keeping loved ones safe during turbulent times. Instead of bragging about backstage misadventures it’s about grappling with mortality. The easygoing collaboration between Ant and Slug has started to feel more like the life-or-death intimacy of two men trapped together on a lifeboat.

At times it’s a heavy album (“I might be the last generation of grandparents,” goes a key line from “Virgo”), but it’s far from grim. There are jokes being cracked, joints getting smoked, a little trash talking here and there– after all, it’s still a rap record.

And Atmosphere’s never sounded better.
