Real Estate Atlas on 180g LP + Download Code
Let’s get down to brass tacks: Ridgewood, NJ’s Real Estate took a mighty leap forward on their last go-around...more record sales...bigger shows...and, more importantly, a timeless classic of an album, Days. It’s been two years since the release of Days, and it’s an album that still sounds as fresh today as it did on its release date.
Atlas, the new album from Real Estate, was recorded over the summer and fall of 2013 with producer Tom Schick (Rufus Wainwright, Mavis Staples, Low), and the ten-song album will be preceded by the release of the single "Talking Backwards."
To commence the follow-up to their sophomore breakout, founding members Martin Courtney (guitar/vocals), Matt Mondanile (guitar) and Alex Bleeker (bass/vocals) were joined by new full-time members, Jackson Pollis (drums) and Matt Kallman (keyboard) and producer Schick this past summer at Wilco's Chicago studio, The Loft. 19-songs were recorded in all over a two-week period and the result is the band's most collaborative, richly detailed album to date.
The cover art of Atlas features a detail taken from Alexander's Mural, an iconic North Jersey landmark created by artist Stefan Knapp that once hung on the side of Alexander¹s department store for over twenty years, not far from the band's hometown of Ridgewood, NJ. Heavyweight 180 gram vinyl in gatefold debossed sleeve with accompanying MP3 download code.
