Photos: Real Estate’s residency at the Chapel

Real Estate (photo: Ria Burman) Photos and words by Ria Burman Real Estate's sold-out three night show at The Chapel had the crowd dance-swaying to their melodic, dream, chill-wave sounds. Monday night support came from Terry Malts who got the crowd pumped for the oncoming delight. Check out “Talking Backwards” from Real Estate's 2014 album Atlas for a feel of their vibe.

Real Estate host three-night residency at the Chapel in June

New Jersey molasses-rockers Real Estate, who craft breathtakingly gorgeous tunes with all the urgency of your local post office, will host a three-night residency at the Chapel this June. The group hasn’t released an album since 2014’s sublime Atlas, but its members have been plenty busy since that time. Bassist Alex Bleeker, a frequent presence in the Bay Area and lover of the Grateful Dead, released his third album (accompanied by his backing band, the Freaks) last year, and guitarist Matt Mondanile issued his fifth release under his recording moniker, Ducktails, in 2015. Martin Courtney, the lead singer of the [...]

Belle and Sebastian coming to Berkeley this weekend

Chamber pop veterans Belle and Sebastian are coming to the Greek Theatre in Berkeley this weekend, touring behind their first album in five years, Girls in Peacetime Want to Dance. The familiar trademarks of the group's sound are present on their ninth studio recording, from Stuart Murdoch's acerbic wit to their penchant for writing stirring, gorgeous melodies (especially on soaring opener "Nobody's Empire"), but many of the tracks are exploring more dance-centric territory. Propulsive rhythms reverberate throughout: the slinky, gripping groove of "The Party Line," the electro, ABBA-esque dance-floor burner "Enter Sylvia Plath," and the Latin-inflected percussion of "Perfect Couples" all contribute [...]

Real Estate stage intimate second Noise Pop show at the Indy

Photos by Tanner Pikop For the second performance of their two-night stint at The Independent, Real Estate maintained the vibrations at a cool medium between casual and intimate. The venue was packed to capacity, and while they kept the audience interaction to friendly, nonchalant banter, they reportedly had a lot of family in the house. They greeted their mothers multiple times and highlighted the fact that it was the birthday of their good friend Grant, who also happened to hold some responsibility for the display behind the band--a three-by-five collection of white square that amplified the incandescent color being projected [...]

Real Estate, The Shilohs, and Dream Boys charm at The Independent

Arguably one of San Francisco’s more stunning venues, The Independent would transform itself into a packed, cozy lounge-esque room as folks waited excitedly for Real Estate to take the stage on Friday night. The group had booked two sold-out nights, and it was clear that there was a sense of anticipation for the New Jersey-based group to finally appear. Openers Dream Boys felt incredibly fitting as they entered into their set; with sweet and sugary dream pop, the music felt very much akin to Real Estate. Their self titled LP out now on Art Fag Recordings, the performance was a [...]

Review: The 2013 Treasure Island Music Festival

This year's Treasure Island Music Festival attracted a diverse crowd, most of which partied way too hard during the high-energy dance sets of Saturday to attend Sunday's more guitar-oriented lineup. Sunday was also much colder, with lines for coffee often stretching beyond lines for beer. Schools of glowing white jellyfish drifted through the festival grounds on handheld sticks, as music fans wandered back and forth between the two stages. Giraffage kicked things off at noon during Saturday's stretch of the festival after an introduction from Noise Pop/Salty Artist Management's Chad Heimann aka Chad Salty, performing sample-driven dance music for the [...]
