Real Estate: Show Preview

There's no shortage of dreamy, washed-out vibes in indie music these days, but Real Estate — hailing from the not-so-sunny NYC suburb of Ridgewood, N.J. — is doling out reverb rock with the best of them. The quartet's sophomore album, Days, listlessly glides through its 10 tracks, recalling the long afternoons of youth that played out on sidewalks and skateboards, when the only thing worth rushing for was the approaching ice cream truck. Songs like “Easy” and “Out of Tune” are neat containers of guitar pop bathed in the warm glow of vintage gear. There are no drum machines or square-tone synths here — just a few languid chords, breathy vocals, and the feeling of simple good time. That's more than enough.
