Real Estate – “Days”

Check out my review of the splendid new Real Estate album over at Donnybrook.

If you picked Days, the sophomore album by New Jersey vibe-rockers Real Estate, off the rack at a record store, you’d be forgiven for thinking they were the most boring band on the face of the earth. Superficially assessing their flat, affectless, Google-search-foiling name, even lessevocative album title, and drabber-than-drab cover art depicting a row of tasteless, grey prefab houses in a dusty lot underneath a matte grey sky, you might think to yourself “now here’s a band that runs in the opposite direction of any signs of brightness, life, or color.”

Ooh, cliffhanger! Click on for the “BUT!”
