In March, New Jersey indie rockers Real Estate returned with In Mind, their fourth album (via Domino Records) and the first without founding member Matt Mondanile, who had left to focus on Ducktails. The album was also their first with Julian Lynch, his replacement and a longtime friend of the band (he appeared on their last album, Atlas, as well). While Mondanile’s presence is certainly missed, Lynch has stepped in to offer his own signature touch to the bands already established sound.

On May 21, they stopped back to Brooklyn for their second sold out show at Brooklyn Steel. The performance featured an opening set from Frankie Cosmos (who recently signed to Sub Pop), who have been opening for Real Estate during this part of the tour.

Real Estate at Music Hall of Williamsburg (December 18, 2014)

By Will Oliver, December 31st 2014 — with 1 comment

1_Real Estate_MHOW

I saw Real Estate a lot this year. They toured almost all year in support of Atlas, which included a warm up show early in the year at Baby’s All Right, as well as performances near the record’s release at Music Hall of Williamsburg and Webster Hall. Then there was their biggest headlining show to date at Terminal 5, which was only a few months ago. I figured that would be the last time we would we see them this year, but then Converse Rubber Tracks announced that Real Estate would be playing one of their free shows at MHOW on December 18.

Last week Real Estate played their largest show to date at Terminal 5. Our very own Anthony Bauer offered some photos and a recap in his post which was shared over the weekend.

It just so happened I was also shooting the show, so I figured I’d also share some of my shots (just habitual at this point I suppose), which also includes Peaking Lights and Regal Degal, who opened. Check out all the pictures below.

You always want to see a band make it, and do it on their own terms in their own pace. In a short period of time Real Estate have done just that, building up their fanbase with every new release, and keeping their hometown roots in Ridgewood, New Jersey while doing so. With their recent success, they’re now stretching out to much larger audiences in New York City, as well as around the globe. As a resident of Rockland County, Ridgewood is just a stones throw away, making them the closest thing that we have to successful local band around these parts.

Real Estate – Paper Dolls (The Nerves Cover)

By Will Oliver, August 28th 2014

Real Estate Had To Hear

Real Estate recently released “Had To Hear” as their latest single off Atlas. The b-side is a cover of The Nerves’ “Paper Dolls.” Here’s bassist Alex Bleeker explaining why they choose this song:

I’m drawn to the Nerves’ intricate guitar work. We’re interested in creating similar guitar parts for Real Estate, but the Nerves have a more aggressive sound so I thought it would be fun to wear that “musical costume” for a while. Blondie already did a pretty good job with “Hanging on the Telephone” so “Paper Dolls” seemed like the next logical choice.

In typical Real Estate fashion they stay loyal to the original while added enough of their own flavor to make it somewhat their own. Stream it below.

The band recently stopped by The A.V. Club to perform a cover of The Cranberries’ “Linger.” Watch that right here.

Watch Real Estate Cover The Cranberries’ “Linger”

Real Estate The AV Club

The A.V. Club runs a video series called “Undercover”, where they bring bands in to their office and allow them to play a cover. Only, it has to be one of the covers that they have on a list, and once a song is taken, you have to choose from the songs other bands have passed over.

Real Estate recently stopped by and ended up cover The Cranberries “Linger.” It works out very well, sounding like it could have been one of their own songs.

Find the cover below.

[music video]: Real Estate – Had To Hear

Real Estate - Had to Hear [Music Video]

Real Estate make the sort of songs that have a timeless feel to it, especially on their wonderful new album Atlas, which has been one of my favorite ones of the year.

“Had To Hear” is one of the best tracks off of Atlas, and it’s music video perfectly captures its mindset. It’s a simple video featuring the band on tour in Mexico City, exploring the city and playing a show. It’s directed by Richard Law, and can be found below.

Watch Real Estate’s La Blogothèque Session

By Will Oliver, July 9th 2014

Real Estate

A few weeks back La Blogothèque posted the session they did with Real Estate in Paris. It all went down in a living room, where the band (just Martin, Matt and Alex) did an acoustic set that featured their usual material, plus a few treats. They played unreleased track “White Light” as well as a fun cover of Weezer’s “Say It Ain’t So.”

It’s a great session. Enjoy it below.

[music video]: Real Estate – Crime

By Will Oliver, April 21st 2014

Real Estate - Crime

Real Estate get the Funny Or Die treatment for their new video, for “Crime”, just one of the many delights of latest album Atlas.

Actor Andy Daly stars as the director of the video who sells his creative rights, allowing anyone who is willing to pay to have some creative input. The results are wild and disastrous, even featuring a Nick Kroll cameo. Tom Scharpling (really) directed it.

Find the video posted below.
