Enjoy it While it’s Fresh: Splash

Sometime last year, before becoming one of the blogosphere’s indie-rock poster childs, Real Estate announced that drummer Etienne Duguay was no longer in the group.  Although I doubt many people were expecting to hear anything from him, he is back on his feet with Splash and it couldn’t be more different from his dreamy roots.  Splash is self-described as “a New Age …
