Although Atmosphere has already hit our news feed not once, but twice over the past three weeks, the duo has earned another slot today with the release of “Just For Show” (streaming below), the first track off the upcoming album The Family Sign.


Even though Slug has been dropping rhymes about poisonous relationships for a while now, this track feels like something completely new and fresh with the dub-style instrumental work by guitarist Nate Collis and keyboardist Erick Anderson. The slow, burning bass line and offbeat guitar chords make it easy for Slug’s flow to lay back into the groove and still arrogantly strut all over it.
