Real Estate was formed in Ridgewood, New Jersey by singer/guitarist Martin Courtney, guitarist Matt Mondanile, and bassist Alex Bleeker. In 2011 Jackson Pollis joined the band on drums and Jonah Maurer on keys and guitar.
Their newest album, Days, was released on October 18th 2011. Recorded with Kevin McMahon (The Walkmen, Titus Andronicus, Swans) in Upstate New York through the late winter/spring of 2011, Days is a gorgeous suite of timelessly melodic, achingly melancholy pop songs and a delightfully confident follow-up to 2009’s exception- ally well-received eponymous debut. Comprised of nine new recordings and a revisit of last year’s enduringly wonderful “Out Of Tune” standalone single, that appeared as a now out- of-print 7” on True Panther, Days is the next step in the career of a uniquely close songwriting collective that feel more important with their every release.
