YOU GOTTA SEE THIS: “It’s Real” by Real Estate
Haven’t heard anything from Real Estate’s Days, an album guaranteed to make several year-end Best Of lists? “It’s Real” is an ideal introduction to the band’s latest batch of woozy, flashback-inducing melodies, and could become their unofficial theme song. The video is designed to put a faraway look in your eyes, even if you have never seen yourself in a sepia-toned home movie or owned a pet larger than a goldfish. The directorial team known as Weird Days provides a charming mixture of sappiness and silliness, like a Foo Fighters video back when they were peppy and cheap. Stick around, check it out, even cat lovers got to shout.
