Real Estate Crime

“Crime” is one of the most exuberant songs on Real Estate’s forthcoming Atlas. That’s not saying much for its intensity level because the album is super-chill through and through, but you can skip down suburban sidewalks to this quite pleasantly. And now, thanks to the band’s latest video, perhaps you can play along to it on guitar. Charles Poekel and Brooke Salisbury filmed Real Estate guitarists Martin Courtney and guitarist Matt Mondanile strumming and plucking their way through “Crime,” and Natalia Stuyk added animated guitar tab to create an homage to YouTube’s millions of homemade guitar tutorial videos. As a teenager I would have loved this shit, and actually, adult me is digging it too. Check it out below.
