Definitely Check Out the New Real Estate Record if You Haven't Yet

We've had Real Estate's new record Days on repeat here lately at Original Fuzz. If you haven't had a chance to hear it, we definitely recommend checking it out. I was a big fan of 2009's self-titled debut and this certainly picks up where they left off with more lazy, suburban, surf guitar and elegant pop melodies.

Pitchfork recently just gave Days a tall 8.7 rating and wrote a review that's actually enjoyable to read. On first listen Days seems a little more languid than Real Estate, but I think it's going to age well. There are also a few super-catchy pop gems and their guitar playing just keeps getting better. Case-in-point is the single "It's Real" (embedded here for your aural pleasure).
