10 Songs, 41 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

The serene Dan Graham cover photo is no misdirection: this is some relaxing music. The Garden State’s pre-eminent chillout band gets deeply mellow on their second album, but they never drown in a bottomless sea of reverb. Instead, Real Estate’s swirling guitars and wispy vocals strike just the right balance of sharpness and haziness, as on the gorgeous “Out of Tune” and the sparkling “Wonder Years.” Days perfectly conjures those sun-soaked July afternoons when you’ve got nowhere to go and nothing to do.
