‘Atlas’, the new album by New Jersey’s Real Estate, is a triumph of highly evocative, perceptive songwriting and graceful, precise musicianship. Carefully refining 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.
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.
What a great album. Beautiful, catchy songs that lift the heart. I cannot remember the last time my favourite song on an album was an instrumental. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Mr C Brown
