Up today:'It's Real,' imbued with the jangly, soft-rock sound of indie quintet Real Estate, Brooklyn-based but hailing from Ridgewood NJ. Despite their nearly Google-proof generic band name, these guys received critical acclaim for both their 2009 debut and their even stronger late-2011 followup, 'Days'..
Lots of continuity in this band, which includes Martin Courtney IV and Matthew Mondanile III.
Enjoy the very 'homey', 70s-outtake quality video for 'It's Real', directed by Wierd Days:
Their follow-up, 'Easy,' is equally lovely, but sunnier. I could have easily gone with this track, but stuck with 'It's Real,' which has been in my head for weeks..
