Real Estate Plays Webster Hall Tomorrow NightAugust 10th, 2012
Alex Bleeker (bass), Martin Courtney (vocals and guitar) and Matt Mondanile (guitar) grew up together in Ridgewood, N.J. “We all went to high school together. And we’ve been playing together forever,” says frontman and former Titus Andronicus member Courtney. So they logically formed a band, Real Estate, and were eventually joined by Jonah Mauer (keys) and Jackson Pollis (drums). Over the course of two equally well-received lo-fi albums, a self-titled debut in 2009 and last year’s Days, they’ve made lush, dreamy music along the lines psychedelic surf rock. And you can get lost in the band’s rolling soundscapes when Real Estate (above, doing “Green Aisles” for In Sound Studio Sessions) plays Webster Hall tomorrow night.
