Real Estate - FUV Live - 2014

by Darren DeVivo

Back in 2011, I was introduced to the band Real Estate while listening to WFUV’s “The Alternate Side” in the car. I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. There were jangly guitars and catchy hooks galore. Those are two music ingredients that are sure to get my attention every time! Hearing this band brought back memories of the guitar-based alternative bands that I played on WFUV in the mid 1980s. From that point on, their first two albums became favorites that could be found in my CD players fairly often. In recent years, Real Estate expanded from a trio to a quintet and now they are back with their third album, Atlas. Needless to say, I was pretty excited to spend some time with the band in the WFUV studios. Their in studio performance was flawless. Hear it for yourself!

The New Jersey band Real Estate decided to use a producer and a professional studio to make their sophomore album, 'Days.' When they stopped by WFUV's Studio A, the band talked to host Russ Borris about the recording of the new songs, and discussed some of the challenges of being a band from NJ. [recorded: 9/21/11]
