CRITIC’S PICK
Real Estate (Brooklyn, N.Y.)
Indie Rock

The boys of Real Estate live in Brooklyn now but they started out in the suburbs of New Jersey and you can hear their suburban roots in every measure. Proof of their awesomeness? They recently toured with Kurt Vile. The band’s newest album, Atlas, was released in March. It offers up the same surfy, dreamy Pop and suburban Indie Rock sound of its past but with less of a happy-go-lucky atmosphere. Atlas has a more grown-up, after the good times vibe and for that reason feels infinitely more real and relatable. Real Estate’s latest single, “Had to Hear,” was released a month ago and is absolutely golden.
