Artist: Real Estate
Song: “Green River”
Album: Real Estate
Brooklyn by way of New Jersey based psych-pop indie outfit Real Estate was formed by singer/guitarist Martin Courtney, guitarist Matthew Mondanile, bassist Alex Bleeker and drummers Jonah Maurer and Jackson Pollis, Their eponymous 2009 debut album, their EP Reality and most recent their LP Days, out on October 18, have garnered the attention of major press outlets and fans.
“Green River,” from Real Estate’s first album, is a mellow and ambient lo-fi track that brings you back to summers spent biking through salty beach towns, full of reverb and nostalgic harmonies. But it isn’t nostalgic; it’s progressive and transcendental; bringing that relaxed, beachy feeling to the present and future. Lucky for New Yorkers, Real Estate is playing a free show at a beer garden (seriously, can it get any better?) in Queens on October 15 to celebrate the release of their new album.
