Free Time released their self-titled debut album last year, and it brought to mind the wistful and extremely pretty indie rock of Yo La Tengo and, more recently, Real Estate. For their new 7″ single coming later this summer, they got Real Estate’s Martin Courtney to record the B-side, “Guess Work.” Over glowing organs and crisp guitar strums, the band muse on the unpredictability (and clearly the “guess work”) that comes with love. Listen to it below and catch them at a couple of upcoming shows in New York City.
