Real Estate is a band based out of Brooklyn, New York that formed in 2009. Members include Martin Courtney, IV (vocals, guitar), Alex Bleeker (bass, vocals), Jackson Pollis (drums), Matt Kallman (keyboards) and Julian Lynch (guitar). In Mind is their fourth studio album and first to feature Lynch who replaced founding member Matt Mondanile.

Real Estate's new record seldom aims to be more than a pleasant, low-key summer diversion, powered with exceptional craftsmanship and a light, stylish touch that provides just the right cozy atmosphere experience. In Mind is an enjoyable fusion of dream pop, surf and psychedelic rock. And although the album does have its sluggish moments in the second half, overall there is much to relish in tracks such as "Darling," "Stained Glass," "After the Moon," "Two Arrows," "Same Sun," and "Saturday." In Mind is a relatively solid release, one that sounds good when you kick it with headphones and even better cruising in your car with the windows down. If you're looking for some easy listening, In Mind offers a delicious blend that is infused throughout with warm melodies and lush instrumentation, making Real Estate's new offering impossible to resist.
