Real Estate - In Mind (New CD)
In Mind, the fourth full-length record from Real Estate, is a portrait of a mature band at the height of it's power. Long respected for their deft lyrical hand and gorgeous melodies, In Mind builds upon the band's reputation for crafting perfect songs and carries Real Estate even deeper into the pantheon of great songwriters. On the new record, the band fine-tunes the winsome songwriting and profound earnestness that made previous albums - 2009's Real Estate, 2011's Days, and 2014's Atlas - so beloved, and pushes their songs in a variety of compelling new directions. Written primarily by guitarist and vocalist Martin Courtney at his home in Beacon - a quiet town in upstate New York - In Mind offers a shifting of the gears, positing a band engaged in the push/pull of burgeoning adulthood.
