Track of the Day: 'It's Real'

More

Past TracksNew Jersey's Real Estate are a reverb-drenched, jangle-pop band in the mold of Garden State legends such as The Feelies, or perhaps Yo La Tengo. And, no, I don't throw around comparisons like that lightly, but this trio has earned it. The new song embedded below features one of those sing-along choruses that send a lot of indie rock bands back to pumping gas. And the guitars sparkle with a sheen guaranteed to brighten up your summer. Too bad we have to wait until October for the new album to appear. But if this track is anything to go by, it'll be worth the wait.



On iTunes: The song isn't available, yet. However, Domino Records is giving away an MP3 of this track for the price of an e-mail address. See the embedded widget above for details. THe band's old debut album is on iTunes, though.
