Highly anticipating the new Real Estate record out on Domino on Sept. 27th, so I’ve been listening to the new song for a while now and I’m totally digging it. So much so that I used the word ‘digging’. I can’t get enough of melodic dream pop- mostly because I can’t let go of the remnants of San Diego-ness in my last week here, so stuff like Real Estate seems pretty fitting.
This sounds like a maturation most notably in the production- thanks to Kevin McMahon (The Walkmen, Titus Andronicus) everything sounds a little cleaner and less ‘recorded-in-my-bedroom’. But I didn’t mind that, much, too. Listen to their single, “It’s Real” below.
