EDITORS’ NOTES

Real Estate’s mellow, deceptively simple sound is one of the marvels of '00s indie rock. Hazy but precise, delicate but self-assured, the band has pulled off the remarkable feat of refining their style without ever really changing it. In Mind, their first since 2014’s shimmering Atlas, dives deeper into their suburban reverie, exploring a jammy, psychedelic side (“Two Arrows”), with hints of jazz (“Holding Pattern,” “Serve the Song”) and surf (“Darling”).

Nice new work

Seems like it will be a good album.

Stop reviewing the album if you haven't listened. No one needs speculation.

Something is missing.

I personally consider Real Estate's previous effort, "Atlas", in my "Top 5 Desert Island" records. It's a classic that I still enjoy immensely. "Had To Hear", "Past Lives" and "Horizon" are songs that I'll never tire of.

"In Mind", however, is just okay. It's certainly not a bad record per say but there's an element of Real Estate's previous work that isn't here.Some of these songs seem overly "mathy" at times when they shouldn't be and they're not as memorable as Real Estate's previous work.

"In Mind" reminds me alot of Martin Courtney's solo record. It's solid in many aspects, but Courtney's arrangements seemed to carry on forever which made repeat listens more of a chore.
