In MindNew Jersey’s Real Estate rolled in with the tide of lush, layered guitar music around the turn of the decade, and since debuting to critical acclaim, they’ve been riding the top of the wave.

In Mind shows no signs of slipping: now four albums in, Real Estate revel in the eternal pleasure of deluxe melodies, still primarily leaning on the beguiling jangle of earlier records but complicating things for the better with jazzy drum patterns and synths and the plastic click of drum machines, sharing less DNA with your dad’s Flying Nun collection and more with his Steely Dan records. Every morose twenty-something has to grow up some time; if this is the sound of aging, Real Estate have nothing to fear.

In Mind is out now via Domino.
