The Real Estate Show

We've had the opportunity to offer quite a few big concert ticket giveaways on The Way Out in recent weeks. This past week we had not one but two pairs of tickets to pass on to our listeners to see Real Estate's upcoming Madison show at the Majestic on March 25th. And as we usually do in these situations, we crafted the entire hour around Real Estate and their mellow, hazy indie-pop sound.

Our approach was a bit looser than usual this time around, though. We played a couple proper Real Estate tracks, some music from band members' side projects (Ducktails, Alex Bleeker), and a handful of songs from their contemporaries, including touring companions and buddy bands (Woods, Pure X). But we balanced that out with a number of older artists and songs which influenced Real Estate, or at least remind us of Real Estate in one way or another and thus we imagine might've influenced them along the way.

Here's the playlist for our Thursday, March 13, 2014, broadcast:

Real Estate - "Talking Backwards"
Alex Bleeker - "These Days"
Woods - "Hand it Out"
Ducktails - "Wishes"
Pure X - "Voices"
