Interview: Real Estate

Monday, 7th January 2013 9:08AM

Bringing together members of Ducktails, Alex Bleeker and The Freaks and musicians associated with the Underwater People's and Woodsist independent record labels, American indie rock band Real Estate have a breezy summertime cool to their music. Laid back and casual, they make songs which while informed by a continuum of psychedelia which stretches from The Velvet Underground to The Chills and beyond, also pays homage to the sleepy pace of their hometown, Ridgewood, New Jersey. Since 2009, through two albums, a bunch of singles and a whole lot of touring, they've become well loved globally.

With the band scheduled to appear at Laneway this summer, Real Estate member Alex Bleeker took some time out to talk to Martyn Pepperell about the environment that created Real Estate, his personal connection to the band, their relationship with their record labels (past and present) and the power of Pitchfork Media.
