Full Album Stream: Real Estate – Days
Coming late in the year but better late than never is the highly anticipated(definitely in my opinion) new album from Real Estate on Domino Recordings. Lead by Matt Mondanile aka Ducktails and his close friends, this record would have been the perfect summer album but it will fill that void of when I can’t listen to any more drone during the winter and need vocals that aren’t annoying. On Days they cut out most of the lo-fi feel, its more classic rock in the sense that you’d hear in a garage of your father’s friends house and you’d be like “this man has good taste“, its not all weak folk/rock like Decemberist or Death Cab and also doesn’t get all psychedelic(never a bad thing) like a Tame Impala album, just the perfect tone. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, pre-order the album here

Been on a vinyl binge lately and this won’t help one bit.

You’re right – this is definitely more of a summer album, maybe late-spring, days getting warmer…
We’ll have snow in a couple months; I just want darkness now.

Streamed it on NPR the other day…wonderful! Sometimes when bands like this get shinier, less lo-fi, it exposes weaknesses…this is certainly not the case here…

great summer feeling band!
it’s my first comment on this blog so it would be unfair if I wouldn’t tell how great it is, and it’s really great!
I love your work, and your music helps me to work, so thanks!

“but it will fill that void of when I can’t listen to any more drone during the winter and need vocals that aren’t annoying” Haa … soo good!
I can’t get enough of ‘Out Of Tune’, especially that last minute.

Just got this one and I totally agree. It is a masterwork. Something that can be listened to all the way through, and then all the way through again.
