MARTIN COURTNEY – ” Magic Sign “

Posted: May 27, 2022 in MUSIC

Real Estate frontman Martin Courtney dropped the debut single from a new album out in June on Domino Records– it’s dripping with a layered, nostalgia vibe that seems perfect for summer road trips.

When Martin Courtney was a teenager, he knew how to get lost. In the late ‘90s and early 2000s, there’s Martin, loaded into a car with friends. They’re navigating the suburban sprawl of New Jersey with no destination in mind. He and his friends would “get thoroughly confused and look for familiar green signs with arrows pointing to towns we’d heard of. We’d call them ‘magic signs,’” he says. 

That’s the thing about magic: when you go looking for it, you start to see it everywhere.  And you can hear it twinklingly throughout the ten songs on “Magic Sign“, the second solo album written, performed, & produced by the Real Estate songwriter. The album was recorded, mixed & co-produced by Rob Schnapf. Additional performers include Matt Barrick, Oliver Hill, Kacey Johansing, and Tim Ramsey.
