Real Estate, Days
2011 | Label: Domino Recording Co

Real Estate sound unambitious to the point where it’s actually kinda risky: How would their cruise-controlled tempos, lovely guitar lattices and plainspoken, nostalgic lyrics stand out in the past three decades of indie rock, let alone in the hyperactivity of 2011? But Days is the rare record that imbues its instantly engaging songcraft with an actual point of view, perhaps the first in the past century of pop culture to recognize New Jersey as the… read more »

How much?

Hard to review when you saved 4.99 for the album only to find out it was 6.99, what gives EM?

No Sale.

This is just terrible. A waxy mess of twee without heart, emotion or attitude. I really wanted to like this. No way is this softer Stone Roses. Like most things from New Jersey, it should stay in New Jersey.

$4.99 or $6.99?

I like DIDJERDU2's review, but this doesn't sound like NJ to me as much as it does Manchester. Yes, when i hear them sing mu-ni-ci-paaal-ity I do think of the different municipalities in NJ, and the subjects in the songs do remind me of the beautiful garden state. But, the chiming guitars reminds me more of the Byrds and the vocals more like softer Stone Roses songs. Still--the album is really solid and worth picking up. On the Real Estate bridge page underneath this album is says $4.99 but when you click over to the page it says $6.99. eMusic--a little bug you should fix.

sounds of NJ

didjerdu2

You can say Real Estate have a mission to save the good name of NJ. Before them, Fountains of Wayne, Dots Will Echo, and the Smithereens proved formidable. The Garden State gets a bad rap; belching pollution from smokestacks along the turnpike, grey dreary buildings, mob references. None of it indicative of this music. Happy melodies, lilting guitars, pristine harmonies almost makes you want to fall in love with New Jersey all over again.

easy to like

Stick-Up-Artist

if you like albums that just sort of float around the room on a lazy afternoon, then there is a pretty high probability that you'll like this one. it doesn't boss you around or tell you to make your bed, it's chill and it's easy and you can just stare out the window while the rest of the world works. there are a lot of good ones, but if you wanna just dip your toe in... check out "It's Real"

Who Are…Alex Bleeker and the Freaks

By Adam Rathe, Contributor

It was a simpler time when Alex Bleeker and the Freaks released their self-titled 2009 debut. "The recording of that record took one day," says Bleeker, who also plays bass in Real Estate. "The songs had been written, it being the first record and all, throughout my life. They were the best songs I'd written up to that point." When it came to making How Far Away, the group's sophomore offering, things weren't quite so easy. "This… more »
