Pullin’ ‘Tubes | Real Estate Talks Backwards
For their follow-up to 2011’s excellent Days, the band headed to Chicago, with two new members, to record at Wilco’s famed recording studio The Loft, where they teamed with engineer Tom Schick (Wilco / Ryan Adams) to produce Atlas. Recorded over the course of just two weeks, the ten-track album is being touted as a sonic step forward; with the songs almost all exclusively recorded live-to-tape. The results can be heard on March 4, when Real Estate releases their third studio album via venerable U.K. indie-label Domino Records.
