The Main Thing

Rejoice - a new Real Estate album! The New Jersey band’s knack for guitar jangle and glorious melodies has cemented their status a favourite around these parts over the years. Their new album, The Main Thing, is inspired partly by the Roxy Music song of the same name, simply because 5 albums into their career they need to be making music that sounds that good. Features a guest appearance by Sylvan Esso on the album’s first single Paper Cup.

Oh this album. The first time I'd come across Real Estate. It was glued to my turntable that Pudsey spring. Its beautiful guitar work and mumbled melodies soundtracking the onset of summer. It's more fractured, more lo-fi than their later work, the laid back songs seemingly recorded in their rehearsal room on a dusky day. Essential Jersey indie pop for fans of Yo La Tengo and the Feelies.

In Mind

Here they come again those nice jangling lads. But there's been a change in the comfy world of Real Estate as guitar twiner no 2 Matt Mondanile has quit to concentrate on his own Ducktails. Though this destroys my Monkees-esque view of the band it will be interesting to see how this affects their sound. Lead track 'Darling' shows that besides getting a horse in on the act not much has changed their summery jangle-rock.   

Real Estate
Atlas

Real Estate were really on fire around the turn of the...um...noughties to the tens. They'd already made the magnificent Days album  - a decade best surely but Atlas was no slouch either honing their particularly lovely brand of guitar pop and providing enough jangle to fill even the longest summer day. Utterly gorgeous sun dappled guitar music for fans of Felt, the Smiths, the Feelies, R.E.M etc.

Days

Real Estate have jangled far and wide, at this point, but Martin Courtney's band of dulcet soft rockers were in their early osmosis on Days, where they started honing their craft with close and co-dependent guitars playing out gorgeously anonymous songs of summer. Listening to Days is something like walking down an empty cul-de-sac under a late night sun.
