Real Estate will release Atlas, the long-awaited follow-up to 2011′s lovely Days, this spring. And so after months of teasing, they’ve kicked off their promo cycle in earnest. To wit: this afternoon the band was interviewed on WNYC’s Soundcheck on this afternoon, during which they played “Talking Backwards,” as well as two previously unreleased album cuts, “The Ben” and “April’s Song”. The Jersey-bred band recorded in Wilco’s Chicago studio, and it sounds like they might’ve absorbed of the alt-rocker’s ways in the process. Atlas is out through Domino on March 4.
