Real Estate - "Had to Hear"

The opening cut from Real Estate's most recent album, Atlas, has grown on me over the months. A road trip to San Francisco loosened me up to its lilting, skipping guitar figure, and now with my wife out of town, the chorus is speaking directly to me: "I had to hear you/just to feel near you."

As for the "Had to Hear" video, its chief function seems to be demonstrating that the guys in Real Estate are so damn nice.
