For me, music is more than just art. Music is more of a force, able to stir one's emotions, awaken one's senses, and unite people under a common denominator. It is an essential part to my life.

Getting really excited for an album to come out must be one of the greatest feelings. I love nothing more than hearing a few singles that just get you really amped, when you know deep down you're going to love the whole thing. Another one of my favorite things in music is to see how sophomoric albums progress from the original success of a debut release. When October 18th comes, I'll get a shot of both with Real Estate's forthcoming LP Days. I simply cannot get enough of the guitar work in the two singles so far, "Green Aisles" and "It's Real". The band seems much more sure of themselves, and more willing to tinker around with new sounds. While "It's Real" is an uptempo pop jam, the newer "Green Aisles" (released last Friday) takes everything down a notch with pleasing and smooth interlays of guitar. So far, both tracks have been winners, and I can only imagine what's to come mid-October. Have a listen to them below, with a free download offered on SoundCloud for "Green Aisles", so be sure to scoop that while you can.
