Pier 54 New York, NY

Musically, Deerhunter is, and has been, many things – ambient punk, noise rock, art rock, shoegaze, post-punk and plain pop. Their second and third albums Cryptograms and Microcastle were ranked by music critics and aficionados alike as among the best albums of their respective years – and the latter ranked among the best of the past decade.

Real Estate’s sound wafts in on vibes of hazy summers from days past living in the burbs. Flagged by Stereogum as a “Band to Watch,” this Yo La Tengo-influenced quartet recently released its debut, full-length LP Real Estate and garnered critical praise and “best new music” accolades.
