There's a reason why Real Estate is one of the most consistently excellent pop-rock bands working today. They're an actual band overflowing with creative types. And during this off-cycle period for a new Real Estate record, we've seen records from bassist Alex Bleeker and a new Ducktails record from guitarist Matt Mondanile (my pick for the most criminally underdiscussed guitar player working today). And now Real Estate's vocalist and other guitarist Martin Courtney is releasing his own solo work. His new album, Many Moons, is due out 10/30, and the video for the record's "Northern Highway" shows a guy not straying too far from his Real Estate roots. But when Real Estate is as good as they are, that's not a bad thing.
