real estate / big troubles

Shins, eat your whimsical little hearts out. Real Estate wants to put you in a new home today and sing you softly to sleep in your warm bed. These Jersey boys will be playing tonight in Philly at Johnny Brenda's with a little help from Big Troubles. I just recently started listening to this band and I am smitten. Light-hearted , catchy guitar jams with clean lead lines that will take you by the hand and bring you on a walk through the park. They released their self-titled album in 2009 on Woodist and released their follow up entitled Days (Domino) on October 18th of this year. Nothing too flashy, just lo-fi pop sing-alongs about dogs, small town life, and introspection. This is the musical equivalent of a picnic on the beach spent reminiscing about the past year. The song "It's Real" immediately pulls you on board with a great three measure phrase that keeps the song gliding gently along. It's hard not to enjoy this video, especially if you love dogs (I do).
