Real Estate – Atlas (Released 3rd March 14)

‘Atlas’, the new album by New Jersey’s Real Estate, is a triumph of highly evocative, perceptive songwriting and graceful,
precise musicianship. Atlas’ carefully refines, and ultimately perfects, the brilliantly distinct artistic vision that made its predecessors ‘Days’ and ‘Real Estate’ so beloved. ‘Atlas’ is intimate and spare. It conjures quiet, late night drives down wooded highways, rural rambles with friends (and maybe a love interest) on the sunniest afternoons of the year, and hazy summer evenings spent alone, thinking back to those times and the people who were with you for them. Within the music one can catch glints of Galaxie 500, Little Wings, Luna, Neu, Nick Drake, and Pavement, and also Fairfield Porter, Milton Avery, and Albert York. The cover art for ‘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 Alexander’s department store for over twenty years, not far from the band’s hometown of Ridgewood, NJ.
· Available on heavyweight 180gram vinyl in a gatefold debossed sleeve with MP3 code.
· An extra vinyl format is also available exclusively to independent retailers, pressed on heavyweight 180gram maroon vinyl and featuring a bonus 7” with non-album songs ‘The Chancellor’ / ‘Recreation’, and a postcard of ‘Alexander’s Mural’.
