Real Estate 

Days (Domino)

realestate-review.jpg
For a second time, New Jersey’s Real Estate has delivered a faultless set of dreamy, guitar pop gems. Everything on this sophomore effort sounds tighter, crisper and clearer, without losing any of the easygoing charm of the 2009 debut. The most immediate draw is, once again, the impeccable guitar playing; the dual work of Matthew Mondanile and Martin Courtney is reminiscent of the venerable 1980s Glasgow label Postcard Records, with its pristine jangle and built-in nostalgia. The young members of Real Estate have proven themselves masters of pacing and, with more discernible lyrics this go-round, exquisitely sensitive to the small details.

Survey Asks

Should council use the yet-to-be-finalized Centre Plan when debating new developments?

  • No, it doesn’t exist yet and is still likely to change
  • Yes, thousands of hours of work and consultation have gone into what’s already assembled
  • Maybe, it really depends on what’s being proposed by the developer
  • I don’t know what the Centre Plan is and do not wish to participate in this poll
