In October 2013, I went to Chicago to visit my good friend Kirsten Renz. We had a grand ol' time. The reason I'm mentioning this random fact is because while I was visiting, Kirsten introduced me to the band Ducktails. I went on a crazy listening bender for a couple of months, and then moved on to other stuff. A year later, my boyfriend, Rob, introduced me to Real Estate very early in our relationship. He had said he thought I would like them, so I decided to give them a spin one day at work.
"This sounds very familiar," I thought to myself. *Google: Real Estate* I learned that the lead singer of Real Estate is also the founding member of Ducktails. Mystery solved. I've been hooked ever since. I usually listen to Days and Atlas back to back while I'm doing some sewing work, or when I'm unwinding at the end of the day.
For your listening pleasure, I have embedded both of those albums here:
