Leave it to Martin Courtney to turn a solo album into a gesture of self-effacement. The singer/guitarist's New Jersey band Real Estate have spent the last six years elevating effortless indie pop into a deeply moving art form, and his fellow group members have routinely worked in side projects-bassist Alex Bleeker with his woolly'n'rootsy Freaks outfit, and guitarist Matt Mondanile with the watery dreamscapes of Ducktails. But Courtney's debut solo outing arrives with his own name pushed to the fore.

Real Estate’s Martin Courtney announces debut solo album. New Jersey janglers Real Estate are on a little bit of a break after a busy year in support of their last album, Atlas. Guitarist Matthew Mondanile has kept busy with his other band Ducktails, who just released new album St. Catherine, and now Martin Courtney is stepping out on his own as well. On Oct. 30, he’ll release Many Moons, his first solo album, via Domino. A press release describes the album as a 10-song collection of soft psychedelia that recalls the Kinks and Big Star even as it probes the depths of Courtney’s own life as a family man, father, and touring musician.
