Our first post on Real Estate was a year ago, the buzz keeps building and their brand new album Days legitimizes the hype.
Here's a great write up about the band by our friends at artistmixtapes.
"There is an old stereotype which claims that nothing all that interesting comes out of New Jersey. Out shadowed by New York City, the monstrous hub of all things creative and cultural, it’s easy to forget that New Jersey has been home to some of the most memorable bands and musicians in rock and roll history. Real Estate is a band that is helping us to remember that even though New Jersey is suburban and humble, awesome music is still being made in its calm and quiet environment. Granted, listening to Real Estate transports you away from quiet neighbourhoods with sidewalks full of parents and kids, and instead places you in warm and hazy days lazing around at the beach. This band knows the importance of escapism, something that is rooted in suburban life, and is the essence of all great music. Real Estate’s hypnotic rhythms and interlacing guitar lines are enough to take you back to those sunny days, and their melodies and hooks are smart and memorable."
