Pullin’ ‘Tubes | Real Estate Talks Backwards

It seems impossible to write about Real Estate without somehow
referencing the fact
that, yes, one of their members –
bassist Alex Bleeker – is a big time jamband fan. Okay, now that we got that out of the
way, we can move on. The
Brooklyn-via-New Jersey band does seemingly inhabit some odd grey area where indie and jam
meet that music writers
have come to label neo-psychedelic. Meaning they play tight three minute songs that are
awash in jangly guitar and
sound both loose and dreamy. Influenced by equal parts Pavement, Yo La Tengo, 1960s surf-
rock and the movie
Garden State a more appropriate term for what this band does might be JamGaze.

For their follow-up to 2011’s excellent Days, the band headed to Chicago, with two
new members, to record at Wilco’s
famed recording studio The Loft, where they teamed with engineer Tom Schick (Wilco / Ryan
Adams) to produce Atlas. Recorded over the course of just two weeks, the ten-track
album is being touted as a sonic step forward; with the songs almost
all exclusively recorded live-to-tape. The results can be heard on March 4, when Real
Estate releases their third
studio album via venerable U.K. indie-label Domino Records.

In advance of the release the band has dropped the music video for the record’s lead
single, “Talking Backwards,” which
was shot during their recording sessions in the Windy City. Let’s check it out:
