I’m having a lazy Friday off of work, so it seems like a perfect time to catch up on what everybody in Real Estate has been up to. Right? Right. Up above is “Northern Highway”, the first single off of Estater Martin Courtney’s solo debut Many Moons. It’s not far off from the music he’s making in his day job, maybe even more laid back, though. If that’s even possible.
Not to be outdone, resident Real Estate low-ender and professed Dead Head Alex Bleeker has a band of his own, the Freaks, and they’re preparing to release an LP of their own. Country Agenda will be out 10/16 on Sinderlyn Records, and “Sealong Hair” is a preview of what you can expect from it. Again, nothing too shocking from the perpetually chilled bassist. “Hair” carries a bit of a pastoral 70’s folk vibe, like something that was written around a campfire.
Still haven’t had enough Real Estate? Then I’d remind you that Courtney’s and Bleeker’s bandmate Matt Mondanile’s Ducktails put out another full length recently, which I wrote about right over here.
