Record of the week

Real Estate’s sixth full-length album, ‘Daniel’, was recorded in an ebullient nine-day spree in RCA Studio A in Nashville. In 11 compulsively tuneful songs, they connect the uninhibited wonder of their earliest work with the earned perspective of adulthood.Real Estate had been thinking about R.E.M.’sAutomatic for the Peopleand 1990s ‘soft-rock radio’, the background music of their youth. Producer Daniel Tashian helped lead them back toward it, toward an improved edition of the less self-conscious band they’d been at the start.
