    Default Atmosphere: Emo-rappers?

    The topic of many of Atmosphere’s songs, women to Slug are an alternating source of fascination, confusion, regret and scorn.

    “I’m over 30, can’t maintain relations, all these women wanna hurt me and I just don’t have the patience. I can’t trust ’em and they’re not much help, when they start to push and pull the buttons I don’t trust myself,” Slug raps in the new song “Little Man.”

    Slug’s interest in tackling his demons has gotten him labeled by some as an “emo-rapper,” tying him to emo-rockers like Death Cab for Cutie and Dashboard Confessional, which have landed scores of teenage and young adult fans with their nakedly confessional lyrics.

    “It’s real live stuff, not trying to rap about a fake life,” said Nate Kranz, head booker at the famed Minneapolis nightclub First Avenue, a regular stop for Atmosphere. “It’s songs that me, you, anybody can identify with.”

    Atmosphere has also gotten a boost from being in heavy rotation on Minnesota Public Radio’s new alternative music station, The Current, and its popular Webcasts. The station debuted in January with the band’s “Say Shh.”

    It’s earned Atmosphere followers that diverge from the usual hip-hop fan base. City Pages, the Twin Cities’ alternative newspaper, once put it bluntly: “Atmosphere is hip-hop for people who don’t like hip-hop.”

    ...tying him to emo-rockers like Death Cab for Cutie

    I've stopped reading after that. Death Cab are as far from rockers as they are from emo, lol . They're still awesome though

    Well I'd agree Death Cab's music not that brilliant.
    Instead their lyrics are.

    Death Cab For Cutie? lol

    Hard to consider any band serious with a name like that.

    More emo... If I wanted depressive garbage I'd listen to country
    music. If words (lyrics) were the main goal I'd read a poem or
    something.
