« Days » (Domino)
米ニュージャージー3人組で結成されたリアル・エステートの2ndアルバム« Days »。2012年には米コーチェラ・フェスティバルにも参加。ライトで爽快、エアリーなポップサウンド。
Real Estate came together in Ridgewood, New Jersey in 2008, comprising singer/guitarist Martin Courtney, guitarist Matt Mondanile (Ducktails), bassist Alex Bleeker (of Alex Bleeker and the Freaks), and drummer Etienne Pierre Duguay (of Predator Vision). 2011 saw the arrival of Jonah Maurer on keyboards and guitar, while Duguay was replaced by new drummer Jackson Pollis.
Singles duly appeared on the Underwater Peoples and Woodsist labels, followed by the band’s critically acclaimed self-titled debut album in 2009 and much touring in the support slot for acts including Girls, Kurt Vile, Woods and Deerhunter. In 2010, Real Estate performed at the Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago and the Primavera Sound Festival in Barcelona. In 2012 they played at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, California.
Real Estate signed with the Domino Recording Company in 2011, a move Matt Mondanile explained succinctly in a recent interview with New Zealand magazine Groove Guide: “Domino Records are cool … They really let you get on with your own thing.” The group’s sophomore record, Days, was released on 18 October 2011.
