Real Estate: FUV Live

Back in 2011, FUV host Darren DeVivo discovered Real Estate while listened to The Alternate Side—not bad when music discovery begins at home! Beguiled the New Jersey group's knack for jangling guitars, richly-woven melodies and catchy hooks, he became a fervent fan and recently interviewed Real Estate for FUV. The band released its third album, Atlas, earlier this year and the band has just announced a show at Terminal 5 on October 2. Just recenty, the guys visited FUV's Studio A for a session, available now in the FUV Vault. Watch videos of live performances of Real Estate's "Crime," "Primitive" and more.

Real Estate: TAS In Session

Local band Real Estate might not have the easiest name to navigate on Google (although you'll find some intriguing New Jersey house listings when looking for tour dates), but the savvy rockers are becoming far easier to find, thanks to their accomplished sophomore album, Days, out now on Domino Records. Real Estate are touring the States now and arrive at New York's Bowery Ballroom on November 23, but they recently dropped by The Alternate Side to play a four-song set and chat about the days it took to make Days.
