If you haven’t found your “fall album” yet, there’s a good chance that Real Estate’s recent Days might be it.
Here’s one of the album’s best tracks, “It’s Real”
There’s not a whole lot to say about “It’s Real” (unlike last week’s pick). It’s a very simple song on a very simple record that plays as timelessly as Yo La Tengo’s I Can Hear the Heart Beating as One or Wilco’s Yankee Hotel Foxtrot. Props I guess for having the final third of the video pay off on the dog motif by packing the obligatory band-pretends-toplay portion of the video with a room full of dogs dressed in/doing different fun things.
