After capping off 2015 with a sold-out album release show at National Sawdust in Brooklyn, we're excited to announce additional tour dates from Martin Courtney, in support of his debut solo album Many Moons. The shows will feature his full band - Jarvis Taveniere of Woods, Matt Kallman of Real Estate, Doug Keith and Aaron Neveu - and will be the first time fans in cities beyond New York experience the album live. 

The bright, lush, 10-song collection of soft psychedelia, which was previewed during a string of CMJ shows earlier this year, further cements the Real Estate songwriter’s talent for writing deceptively affecting songs – jangly, melancholic jams touching on themes of past and present, loss and love, home and the heart. Purchase it now on CD or LP from the Domino Mart, your fine local record store, or purchase / stream it from a digital retailer.

We're also happy to share two videos from Martin Courtney and his band. The first is a cover of Pavement’s "Major Leagues" recorded as part of a Sirius XMU session. Courtney and band recently recorded a live session for KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic, watch a performance of "Airport Bar" below. Fast forward to 17 minutes into the stream to hear them cover Richard Hell's Time.

Speaking of radio, "Northern Highway" was recently featured in NPR Music's Heavy Rotation "10 Songs Public Radio Can't Stop Playing." Read more about it here. Special thanks to WFUV.

Watch the video for "Northern Highway" and listen back to "Airport Bar" and "Vestiges."
