      The world is a vastly different place than it was just a few years ago, and Atmospheres seventh album, Mi Vida Local, reflects the ways in which the world, and Atmospheres 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 its 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 its a heavy album (I might be the last generation of grandparents, goes a key line from Virgo), but its far from grim. There are jokes being cracked, joints getting smoked, a little trash talking here and there after all, its still a rap record.And Atmospheres never sounded better.As the name implies, Mi Vida Local is intensely focused on the place it was created the southside of Minneapolis where Slug and Ant work tirelessly in their beautiful basements, refining their sound without interruption, save for a handful of friends from the Minneapolis hip-hop community who showed up to contribute. A year of one-on-one collaboration resulting in an album that matches complex subject matter with equally deep beats ones that show a clear lineage back to the psychedelic funk landmarks from an earlier era where America was going through a post-utopian hangover, and prove that there wont ever be a time where boom-bap beats dont sound perfectly of the moment.Mi Vida Local might be the best album Atmospheres ever made. Its definitely the one they needed to make right now, and one listeners need to hear just as urgently. If its sometimes an album about how the fight to find happiness never really ends even after you get the house and the kids and the artistic freedom to make dad-rap records its also about discovering that theres happiness to be found just in fighting.
