Hello and welcome to my year-end list. I started my Albums of the Year post about 9 blogmonths (2 weeks) ago and realized very quickly that the majority of my favorite music from this year wasn’t on there. For me, 2011 was a big year for songs. Albums, singles, EPs, mixtapes, remixes, remix albums, free [...]

This song definitely wasn’t already endearing enough. It definitely needed a video with cute dogs blowing out birthday candles and wearing bow ties. Definitely. Real Estate’s “It’s Real” video, above. Days is great/out.
Real Estate’s excellent sophomore album, Days, makes a great soundtrack for the eternal summers of LA, the fall, wasted miles and aimless drives. The album is highlighted by “It’s Real”, their best song IMO and one of my favorites of the year. Due October 18. Streaming over at NPR. Stream: Real Estate Days
Here’s another free treat from Real Estate’s upcoming sophomore album that’s just in time for fall’s earlier sunsets and more than worth the two clicks. Days is due October 18. Grab “Green Aisles” below. Real Estate – Green Aisles by DominoRecordCo
Stroked, Stereogum’s latest album tribute compilation (a la Enjoyed and OKX), features a cover of every track for the 10th Anniversary of The Strokes’ Is This It. We’re old! My favorites by The Morning Benders, Real Estate, and Owen Pallett are below. Get a free download and more info on the comp, here. Real Estate [...]
New Jersey’s Real Estate (via actual Real Estate offices) are giving away a new track from their upcoming sophomore album, Days, which was recorded in upstate New York with The Walkmen, Titus Andronicus producer Kevin McMahon. It’s called “It’s Real” and it’s really good. Stream/download, below. Days is due October 18 on Domino.
“Suburban Dogs,” a lovely, mellowed out track from Real Estate’s lovely, mellowed out self-titled release, got a video premiere today on P4K TV full of ugly Christmas sweaters and some ‘beautiful spiral ham ova’ here.’ Had some trouble getting into the Jersey band’s 2009 debut (oddly, must not have been feeling very chillfuzzed that day), [...]
