Real Estate - Fake Blues

Real Estate were one of my favourite musical discoveries of last year. 'Fake Blues' just sticks in my head, and there's something so painful/honest/funny in the lyrics: "Just last year seems so long/ When I used to live on my own/Now I sell shit on the phone/'Cause I don't want to live at home". It feels like we've all been there at one point or another. And now Real Estate allows us to laugh about it...but it's a mildly painful laugh.
