Martin Courtney is one of the main voices of New Jersey’s indie rock frontrunners Real Estate.  Now three albums deep and riding a huge wave of success from 2014’s Atlas (one of SlyVinyl’s favorites from that year), Courtney is taking a short reprieve and venturing out into solo territory.

Many Moons could easily pass for Real Estate album #4, packed with those familiar harmonies we’ve loved since Real Estate’s debut in 2009 and those finger-snapping Feelies-style acoustic meanderings.  There’s a perfect 70’s AM radio vibe in these new tracks, at times yearning and hopeful like George Harrison’s early solo work, and other times melancholy like Bread’s greatest ballads.  It’s remarkable how well Real Estate can write music, and it’s evident in the many solo endeavors within the band.  Many Moons is no exception.

Domino Records has 500 copies of the album on coke-bottle clear wax, and I don’t imagine they’ll last long.
