Days, the 2011 album by New Jersey band Real Estate, might not be your best musical bet if you need to get pumped up for a big-time boxing match or something like that. But if you're looking for 40 seamless minutes of beautifully languid indie-pop, it's undeniably the right choice. It's also a grower; two-plus years after its release, Real Estate's second record sounds more charming and comely than ever. Which makes Real Estate's album number three, Atlas—out on Domino the day after tonight's Portland show—one of the most hotly anticipated albums of 2014. And it delivers: 10 tracks of gentle, jangling guitar-pop music, exquisitely crafted with earworm melody after earworm melody sighed seemingly just for you. In other words, Atlas is gorgeous. Is it as great as its predecessor? Only time will tell. BEN SALMON
