Brother Ali Speaks on New Album

“I can't tell you how excited I am to offer a new album to the world. Each of my projects are the result of the pain, growth and eventual healing that I experience. Articulating the pain and navigating the healing allows those of you who really feel my music to travel with me. It's not only that we hurt together, we heal together as well. Ant produced the entire project and it might be our best work.” -Brother Ali

In the months leading up the new album, Fishing Blues, Atmosphere released a total of seven digital singles. Much to the surprise of their fans, none of these singles appeared on the album, and they remained available as digital singles only… until now.

Now packaged together, as Frida Kahlo vs. Ezra Pound, these singles are available for the first time as a limited edition 7” box set, and also on CD. The collection features guest appearances from Aesop Rock, Blueprint, Grieves, Prof, deM atlaS & Eric Mayson.

The 7” box set contains a total of seven different 7” vinyl records, each featuring individualized artwork by Dave Quiggle printed on full-color vinyl jackets, surrounded by a custom printed hard slipcase, and including a free digital download card. Each 7" record contains one of the original tracks b/w the accompanying instrumental. Guaranteed to be the perfect holiday gift for any Atmosphere fan.

The CD version includes all seven original tracks, packaged in a slim, custom printed digipak case, with photos by Dan Monick and illustration by Dave Quiggle.

Bundle your order today with the Frida Kahlo vs. Ezra Pound sticker pack, containing seven 4”x4” stickers of each of the original cover artworks.

Never Forgotten

On Saturday, October 16, 2010, we lost our beloved friend, family member and artist Micheal “eyedea” Larsen at the age of 28. Eyedea, who was most notably known for his music with Eyedea & Abilities, Oliver Hart, Face Candy and Carbon Carousel, was an artist in its truest form. He will be deeply missed, but never forgotten. In the days to come, we feel the focus should be on Micheal’s life, music and legacy. Let’s celebrate his life, remember his music and never forget what he has given us all.

We miss you. We love you. And, you will not be forgotten.

Micheal “eyedea” Larsen 11.09.81 – 10.16.10 R.I.P.

Watch the video from the 11.09.10 Celebration at First Avenue here.
