Editors’ Notes

Chiming guitars, complex harmonies, and a steady yet unobtrusive backbeat set adrift on a sea of reverb. Ideal for driving or daydreaming, these 10 songs flow together so smoothly they seem to be of a single shimmering piece. The melodies, pure and effortless, are grafted to jangly guitars, and not a note’s out of place here. More polished and pristine than the band’s eponymous 2009 debut, Days picks up on a similar lyrical thread suggesting all isn’t as sunny as it seems. Beneath the production’s glow is a vague sense of disillusionment, with the band seeking escape in simple pleasures such as “aimless drives through green corriedors” or lying on one’s back and staring at trees. Aside from “It’s Real,” probably the catchiest track here, the album isn’t about delivering hooks; it’s about sculpting moments of understated beauty from simple passages as on “Out of Tune,” the instrumental “Kinder Blumen,” and the mesmerizing seven-and-a-half minute closer, “All the Same.” In the end, Days is a perfect companion piece to Real Estate's debut; it finds the band further honing a warm guitar-pop sound of its own.

Customer Reviews

Remember the Summer? When Life was… Easy?

With much oh so sweet reverb and a relaxed tone of voice and guitar, Real Estate’s new album “Days” entices us to bring forth the sentimentality we each have within us, held in our unconscious so dearly. This new album is reminiscent of another time, a summer season so calm and without worry. The beachiness of Real Estate’s signature sound causes many of us to enjoy their music, but on this new record, we listeners cannot help but slow down and become united with the mellow harmonic movements. Indeed, one could not conjure up a better title to this album. With striking simplicity, the title, “Days”, is professed, yet within this word and the sound of the album, we come to realize that we are called to savor, to cherish, to enjoy, and to relish in these “Days”. Whether they be the careless, warm, lax summer days I imagine them to be or any others, the entire ambience and vibe of these days lie in the dreamy guitar riffs and vocals of this album. Please listen; find the days that captivate and capture you, when your life is slow and easy.

Summer Haze

Remember when you skipped school and went over the Cindy's house in HB and she was wear'n those jean shorts & ochre blouse from India and you could see the Pacific out the front window as she lite up a bowl of chiba a surf board leaned against a chair on her porch while her dog a Lab was hump'n the leg on a kitchen table to the sound of Quicksilver Messenger Service in the background and you said wow the surf's come in sets of three and she said yeah on a cloudless day too did I want anutter hit? and I said no but some shrooms would get me right on a day like this and she said just what the doctor ordered while both chewed on schrooms she picked in San Jose kids could be heard fly'n kites on the beach...well, this album's like that.

so chill

love this album, and much of your previous work as well. i just came across this band on princeton college radio a few weeks ago when i heard "green aisles" and i def. dig this music. It is laced with 60s-70s nostalgia and there is real talent here. ou wont regret checking this album out!
