“Green Aisles” - Real Estate - Days (2011, Domino)
Indie rockers Real Estate are dropping the follow-up to their charming 2009 self-titled debut in a bit under a month, and have kindly just released the second track from the album as a free download.
Green Aisles is just like the best of their first album— perfectly laid-back, dreamy indie rock. Just in time for our summer here in the southern hemisphere, I can see myself spending more than a few lazy days at the beach with this album.
This only one of many incredible tracks from this UK redhead’s retro pop album Extended Play. Louis from Leeds is gonna be a household name if he keeps churning out hits like this! If you dug that breakout Girls record from last year, or if you’re all up on the Real Estate tip, this is gonna be yr new fave.
Fella’s on tour ‘round the UK later this month and into November with Wavves and Best Coast. Be sure to get to those shows early and catch his set!
Wow, I was hooked in the first 30 seconds. I vaguely remember hearing Spectrals a bit ago but this is great. Also, I’m super jealous of his guitar. Anyone know what kind/model it is?
It is no secret that Real Estate is one of my favorite bands. They have just announced their newest 7” on the super rad label True Panther, dropping about a week after my birthday on October 12th, but you can preorder it here. We heard this song live thanks to NYCtaper, so I already knew the recorded version would not dissapoint. It even features some cool synth work by Daniel Lopatin, resulting in a well-rounded and cohesive track.
Here’s an amazing concert I found of Deerhunter playing the Noise Pop Festival in 2009. I forgot just how great this band is. They simultaneously enjoy lulling you into a hypnotic state and waking you up from that with searing guitars and amazingly tight drumming. Plus, the lighting at the beginning of this concert is frickin’ awesome. It’s so dreamy and ethereal and totally goes with their blanket of sound.
Also, if you happen to be in New York in a few weeks Deerhunter is playing a free show with Real Estate at Pier 54. I can’t wait!
I’ve never really had a favorite band, in this day and age their are so many bands/artists that exist on the internet they could probably populate their own country. What kind of criteria would categorize a favorite band? How many times you play their record? How many of their records do you own? How many times you’ve seen them play live? I think when it comes down to it, it’s a pretty plain and simple reason: it’s how closely their music relates to you.
