WMSE Song of the Day (Tune In, Turn Up): Real Estate “It’s Real”

One of the bands WMSE ‘s pop fiends are into right now is Real Estate’s Days [Domino Records]. The bright and strolling melodies Martin Courtney, Matthew Mondanile and Alex Bleeker create call to mind old-school days spent with the twee set, ambling through leaf-twirling parks. After some time spent at the venerable Woodsist label, Domino took notice of the New Jersey trio and asked them to hold hands, giving additional legs to their already game songcraft, full of wistful lyrics, pretty guitars and brisk percussion.
