Someone went through the trouble to change REM’s opus Losing My Religion from a minor key to a major key, giving the iconic song a whole new feeling. We’re not exactly sure what prompted them to go through the trouble, but it’s definitely an interesting listen.
I’m floating on a cheery, peacefully slow-moving river in the shade because I’m listening to Real Estate’s new release, Days. Early REM. Remnants, Feelies-ish guitar picking and other hints of mid-late 80s awesomeness abound on the 10 song album from these New Jersey tune craftsmen. Keep an ear on this band.
This clip from way back in the day (before Justin Beiber was even a twinkle in his parents’ eyes) shows just how creative you can get with a killer pop hook, an awkwardly compelling frontman, and a healthy dose of imagination. More please.
