Real Estate - The Main Thing
‘The Main Thing’, out on Domino, delivers the band’s most inspired and self-aware set of songs to date, created over the course of a year at upstate New York’s Marcata Sound.
Following his work on 2011’s Days, engineer Kevin McMahon returns as producer and, for the first time ever, Real Estate have brought in outside instrumentalists and special guests like Sylvan Esso, whose vocalist Amelia Meath features on ‘Paper Cup’.
Across the album’s 13 interrogative tracks - as full of depth, strangeness, and contradictions as they are lifting hooks - the band balances existential, environmental and political anxieties with fatherly sentiments, self-satirizing lyrics, forever-lively guitar lines and shimmering strings.
Available to independent retailers in deluxe tip-on gatefold sleeve with printed inners and digital download card.
