Atmosphere Awarded 7.0 From Pitchfork
These past few weeks haven't been so bad for Slug and Ant, otherwise known as Minneapolis rap duo Atmosphere. Their sixth album, When Life Gives You Lemons, You Paint That Shit Gold, was released about two weeks ago Tuesday, and it had a surprisingly high debut on the Billboard Top 200 album charts, coming in at #5. Not only that, but the duo also released the latest in the Sad Clown EP series, the tour-only Sad Clown, Bad Spring #12, announced Soundset 2008, and completed their YouTube series Paint It Gold. To add some relatively good icing on their cake of success, Pitchfork weighed in favorably on Paint it Gold, rewarding the album a solid 7.0.
