Editorial Reviews

Days is a gorgeous suite of timelessly melodic, achingly melancholy pop songs and a delightfully confident follow up to 2009's exceptionally well received eponymous debut.

Real Estate is a band that hits the sweet spot between easy, ingratiating pop and obscure, ponderous post-rock. Their first, self-titled album hit me like a glass of champagne on an empty stomach, with a wash of warm nostalgia and sunny feelings. This one announces itself with the cover: a line of empty concrete bungalows under a gloomy sky. Still, above it all, the happy, retro "Real Estate" band logo floats reassuringly. And that's how this album feels. The nostalgia is there, but while the first album seemed to be a soundtrack for a June day at a beach house, this one is the soundtrack for sitting inside that beach house, watching the sun set over a deserted beach at 6 pm, as winter closes in. The blue surf has turned grey.

The sound of this band is hard to pin down. They're sometimes compared to the Beach Boys, but I don't think that's apt. Brian Wilson always put his melodies front and center, because they had to be heard and loved from the speaker of a transistor radio. This is a headphone band. They remind me a little of the Pixies, both because of the teasing, bright lines the guitar plays and because they tend to hide amazing melodies under a murky, propulsive wash of sound. That's one of the reasons I keep returning to Real Estate's songs again and again; there's real beauty there, but it seduces you rather than throwing itself in your face. But unlike the aggressive Pixies, Real Estate conceals sweet surprises in their songs. There's often a gentle rocking feel to this music. If you're listening to it in the foreground, you'll hear wonderful songs. If you keep it in the background, it's lulling and uplifting. I find it's perfect music to play when I'm up against a harsh deadline at work.

Needless to say, the indie world loves this album. There are no lack of stellar reviews for it and it made most magazines' top 10 for 2011. I bought the album initially for that reason alone with my usual skepticism.

I had nothing bad to say after my first couple listens, but the more I listen to the album, the more I notice why people seem to like it so much. It is the mood transformation ability that the album has. Real Estate's calm, comforting, deliberate lyrics and chord progression can put me at ease even after an atrocious day at work.

This is the easiest listen of the year for me. Everything from the lyrics, the guitar, and the structure of the band is so refreshingly simple and uncluttered. In a music industry that requires more and more loud driving bass and electronic twists (which I also like from time to time, don't get me wrong) to keep people interested, this album does it by just providing 10 extremely well written and pleasant tracks which make a fantastic listening experience start to finish. I look forward to more from this band down the road.

I first heard Real Estate on my way to a snow boarding trip. Their song "It's Real" was playing on the college radio station and I made it a point to remember their name. As soon as I got back, I decided to pick up the album even though I only heard the one song. That's not something I typically like to do because I bought many albums like that and they've been massive disappointments. I'm happy to say that "Days" was not one much disappointment. "Days" isn't a terribly strong indie album but it's far better than average. Songs like "Easy" and "It's Real" are true indie rock gems while my favorite song of the album, "Out Of Tune" is a beautiful shoe gaze like tune that was the real highlight for me. While it has some fantastic songs, I found the album as a whole lost focus and it failed live up to it's true potential. I could feel that they were on the cusp of creating a classic indie album and just could quite get it lined up right. I enjoy "Days", I find myself listening to it often and I like to listen to it when I need to unwind. I would recommend it and I look forward to what the gentlemen of Real Estate create in the future.

I'm surprised to be the first reviewing for this album here. It is 11-11-11 but 'Days' was released 10-18-11. Is this album taking a while to sink-in or is it entirely forgettable?

Given my five stars I'm definitely in the former category. But there is a catch. Yes, I think that this is an album that may take some time to sink in. When it does, you will find it beautiful and lovely. Every song will unfold like a little gem of blissful pop. Its liquid guitar melancholic swoosh will be enveloping and nurturing.

And yes, it will be entirely forgettable. This is music of the now. You will listen to it a dozen times, maybe more. You will then shelf it and forget it. Ten years from now someone will rummage through your catalogue (assuming you have such a thing) and will say: hey, what's this with those houses? And you will say: Oh yeah, let's put it on. 'Days' will sound vaguely familiar. Like, yah, I liked that song. That was good -- strum strum strum -- strum -- Meh.

Whatever happens in the future, in the now, Real Estate's 'Days' *is* beautiful. It is a lovely collection of songs strung together seamlessly with melodic hooks, soft guitars, and a dude who's a little afraid to sing. Given how we consume music, if this album stays on high rotation for 2 weeks, it's a winner. Thing is, it may take 2 weeks to fully grasp.

But is longevity the purpose? How many albums you come back to? In the Aeroplance Over the Sea? Endtroducing? Disintegration? Doolittle? Innervisions? When was the last time you listened even to those?

'Days' will fill-in the days between.
