Atmosphere - Just for Show (single)

Whoa. I was definitely excited for Slug and Ant's 7th official studio LP The Family Sign, but that's because I am an unwavering Atmosphere fan, so I was guaranteed to like it on some level, no matter what. Now that I've heard the first release, "Just for Show" I am actually counting down the days until I get to hear the album in its entirety! The Family Sign drops April 12th which you can pre-order now via the Rhymesayers website. In the meantime you can download "Just for Show" on iTunes, and preview it here.


The track has a laid back, big-band ska vibe; while the lyrics are perfectly painful, personal and poetic. I'd be lying if I didn't admit to relating to them on a rather deep emotional level, and I'd expect nothing less from the talented duo.

The Family Tour starts April 20th, if you're lucky enough to have a show in your area, I suggest you GO!
