Real Estate – Green Aisles

September 30, 2011

New Jersey slack-rockers, Real Estate are set to release their sophomore album “Days” on the 18th of October courtesy of Domino Records, and I am pleasantly looking forward to it. Their 2009 self-titled debut was a solid slow burn of quiet rock tunes that were reminiscent of Pavement, Bedhead, and Yo La Tengo. Although the album didn’t blow my mind, I knew this young band was one to watch. In the following two years, guitarist Matthew Mondanile has released a shit ton of music under his Ducktails moniker (which I am a huge fan of btw), and bassist Alex Bleeker also released an album with his band The Freaks. And of course, throughout all this, they’ve been playing shows and festivals and getting tighter and tighter…so I’m quite sure that their new album “Days” will be their finest collective musical output to date. Have a listen to early single “Green Aisles” below — it reminds me of The Stone Roses, and Pavement, and long drives down county roads in the yellow heart of autumn. In short, I dig. Check it.
