Atomic Farmhouse is like a canteen filled with Mike's Hard Lemonade and liquid LSD. I fucking love these pricks.
I love their minimalistic production.
I love their off kilter delivery.
I love the grime and grittiness.
The whole thing reminds me of 90s era underground hip hop; hard as Fuck and bombastic as shit. Densely packed with references, both personal and obscure; I swear to god like every third line makes me want to punch these guys in the dick for being awesome.
Their album Fortune Cookie was sent to me with some wildly outlandish bullshit about Nas, Doom, blah fucking blah blah. I get it, writing bios is fucking hard and generally a stupid practice because about two sentences in you feel like a major dick for sucking your own cock so much. If anything the practice is more of a disservice, especially for new artists because it skews the few of potential fans with either lofty or unattainable; or in this case, a fucking total turn off because as a former rapper whenever I hear people talking about golden era, classic Nas or sounding like Doom, it is code for shitty production and shitty raps.
THIS HOWEVER IS NOT THE CASE WITH ATOMIC FARMHOUSE!
I REPEAT THIS IS NOT THE CASE!
Fortune Cookie drips with originality. It is as lofty as it is lo-fi. It is reminiscent of the type of act that you would have heard on Stretch and Bobbito and then spend the next year trying to find every obscure tape, demo, and piece of vinyl available on these guys. Luckily now we have the internet and we can google search these fuckers and find all sorts music, shirtless pictures and merch, like the Atomic Farmhouse cock ring I am currently wearing.
If you like your rap dirty, filled with Fuck you attitude and dripping with a DIY feel then I couldn't recommend these little shitbags more.
