On their second album, Days, New Jersey band Real Estate show that they can take a good thing and make it better. This album has a carefree feel to it, seemingly effortless for them to create. Their songs transmit a nostalgia for a relaxed way of living, summers past, and youthful tomfoolery. Singer Martin Courtney makes some valid points when he said: ‘Our careless lifestyle, it was not so unwise’.
