Real Estate Takes It ‘Easy’ Topping The Loop


The first loop of the year brings Rober Awards multiple nominees Real Estate back on top with their jaunty new single, ‘Easy’. Our brand new chart includes some releases by up and coming artists such as Julia Holter, Stay+, New Look or Grimes, as well as notable comebacks from the likes of Mark Lanegan Band; The Shins; The Magnetic Fields and Leonard Cohen, who came to London to present his new album ‘Old Ideas’, easily his best since the influential 80′s classic ‘I’m Your Man’.
