“In Mind” Real Estate
Look up the definition of jangle pop-rock in the encyclopedia and you’ll find this: see Real Estate. Or rather, you should, because no one does it better. On Real Estate’s fourth album, In Mind, the band once again offers a variety of the most sunshiny, feel-good, jangle pop-rock anywhere. But with a new lead guitarist, Julian Lynch, replacing founder, Matt Mondanile, and a new producer, the band delves more deeply into the psych-tinged rock of the late 60s and 70s — recalling the Byrds and even The Beatles’ “I Want You (She’s So Heavy)” from Abbey Road. In Mind is an outstanding album with a lot to like from a very accomplished name in indie music.

1. (4:21) Darling – Classic Real Estate. Lightly tripping with crisp drumming and a great bass line. Breezy synths and vocals. Strong hooks. ****
2. (3:14) Serve the Song – Laid-back, weekend kind of feeling. 70s vibe. More guitar distortion in the lead break.
3. (3:54) Stained Glass – Harpsichord lead-in to bigger jangly guitars. Rich harmonies and guitar chords harken back to bands such as The Byrds. ****
4. (4:51) After the Moon – Dreamy pop-rock ballad in skipping three-four time. Watch for double ending — first at about 4 minutes, then for good after a meandering 40-second trail-out.
5. (6:51) Two Arrows – Starts as a languid jangle. Gauzy, with psychedelic sounds rushing by. Then, a Beatles-like extended guitar and organ jam that builds over the last 3 minutes of the outro, cut off at the end. ***
6. (3:15) White Light – Simple jangle pop-rock. Originally written for the band’s previous album, Atlas, but not included in the final set-list. ***
7. (3:46) Holding Pattern – Almost an 80s lounge feeling to this one.
8. (3:50) Time – Shimmering and chime-y. Shuffling bossa nova beat. Organ under throughout. Short guitar solo at end.
9. (2:34) Diamond Eyes – Song by bassist, Alex Bleeker. More of a rootsy folk-rock tune. Guitar jangle and wah-wahs, with swirling synths ***
10. (3:18) Same Sun – Bouncy, with a slightly off-kilter rhythm. Sweet harmonies supported by jangly guitars.
11. (5:04) Saturday – Chamber piano intro. Slow ramp up into a song that is quintessential Real Estate. Lots of jangle. Warm lead vocal with rich harmonies. ***
