Promoting their 3rd studio album entitled ‘Atlas‘ – this will be the second time Real Estate shall visit their Irish fans in Dublin in 2014.
The most collaborative Real Estate record to date, Atlas was written by Martin Courtney, Matt Mondanile, Alex Bleeker and Jackson Pollis, while cruising through the Arizona desert and during a presser in Madrid, in a practice room in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, and in an attic in the band’s hometown of Ridgewood, New Jersey. It was recorded in the summer of 2013 in Chicago with Tom Schick (Sean Lennon, Low, Cibo Matto) at Wilco’s loft studio where new member Matt Kallman (formerly of Girls) joined the fold on keyboards.
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. You can catch glints of Galaxie 500, Little Wings, Luna, Neu, Nick Drake, and Pavement, and also Fairfield Porter, Milton Avery, and Albert York. It’s a precise and taut, uniquely American variety of impressionism, cut through with a melancholia that can feel variously heartbreaking and newly wise.
