I feel compelled to share another track from Real Estate’s new album Days, which might be my pick for best of 2011. Putitupto11 and I got to see them at Brighton Music Hall last weekend for the first show of their tour, and the guys were cool enough to stick around and shoot the shit afterwards.
This song is one of their more uppity tracks from the album, with an equally happy video that pretty much conveys the idea of why dogs are Man’s Best Friend better than those sappy, guilt-ridden ASPCA commercials with Sarah MacLachlan.
Here are their upcoming tour dates before taking off for sunny Australia and New Zealand for the dead of winter:
01.17 – Burlington, VT — Higher Ground
01.18 – Montreal, QC — La Sala Rossa
01.19 – Ottawa, ON — Mavericks
01.20 – Toronto, ON — Lee’s Palace
01.21 – Cleveland, OH — Beachland Ballroom
01.22 – Washington, DC — Black Cat
