REAL ESTATE - THE MAIN THING VINYL (LTD. DELUXE ED. 2LP TIP-ON GATEFOLD)
LIMITED DELUXE EDITION 2LP VINYL TIP-ON GATEFOLD
Release Date: 28th February 2020
The 5th album from New Jersey indie-rock band Real Estate, and follow-up to 2017's In Mind. Real Estate have always had a sound of their own which they have slowly been developing, expanding and experimenting with - and The Main Thing sees them doing this more than ever. But this is still quintessentially Real Estate and these small evolutions just keeps them as interesting as their debut over a decade ago!

"‘The Main Thing’, out on Domino, delivers the band’s most inspired and self-aware set of songs to date, created over the course of a year at upstate New York’s Marcata Sound. Following his work on 2011’s Days, engineer Kevin McMahon returns as producer and, for the first time ever, Real Estate have brought in outside instrumentalists and special guests like Sylvan Esso, whose vocalist Amelia Meath features on ‘Paper Cup’. Across the album’s 13 interrogative tracks - as full of depth, strangeness, and contradictions as they are lifting hooks - the band balances existential, environmental and political anxieties with fatherly sentiments, self-satirizing lyrics, forever-lively guitar lines and shimmering strings."
