Now Playing: Real Estate at SXSW 2014

Written by Rory Burbeck | Friday, May 16, 2014

New Jersey indie rock group Real Estate brought their dreamy, chilled-out sounds to the SXSW Music Festival for the second time in 2014, just a week after the release of their third studio album, Atlas.

The band played three official SXSW showcases this year, including one instance where they shared a bill with both Angel Olsen and EMA at the Central Presbyterian Church (sure wish I was there!) But Real Estate also treated us to a live performance of Atlas in its entirety on the Radio Day Stage in the Austin Convention Center - I was in attendance for this showcase and it was one of the better sets I saw all SXSWeek.

We are premiering three videos from the band’s set at the Radio Day Stage. Watch “Had to Hear” (the album’s opener) above; performances of both “Talking Backwards” and “Crime” are also available.
