Sunny Day Real Estate were the pioneers of a great, early alt. rock/emo music scene, and in many instances way ahead of their time. Paving the way for much of the music that was heard in the indie circuit circa 1996-2002.
The put out 2 monumental cds from 1992-1995 (“Diary” and “The Pink Album”) before they broke up. They also released 2 cd’s after a reunion in 1998, one of them being “How It Feels To Be Something On”which I consider to be the best cd in their library. But the true reason for this post is to dig up a few of the mostly unheard demos and b-sidesthat many people missed out on hearing when the band was around. There is always room in your cd collection for Sunny Day Real Estate.
