The 10-day count down until Real Estate release their superb sophomore record Days starts tomorrow. If you’ve heard the songs released so far (“Easy,” “Green Aisles,” “It’s Real”) that may still seem too long. People who attended the release party of Fader Magazine #76 were lucky enough to see Real Estate play there and perform a bunch of new songs. ‘What good is that to me?’ you might ask. Well, fortunately a professional film crew was there to capture a couple of the songs with perfect audio and upload them so that everyone who didn’t go can watch. Below you can watch performances of the sublime “Green Aisles” and Days‘ wonderful closing track “All The Same.”
