Imagine, if you will, the 90s cartoon DuckTales on acid. A situation like that would be totally terrifying yet strangely compelling all wrapped into one colorful experience. That’s kind of what one-man band Ducktails sounds like on first listen. Matthew Mondanile, who also plays guitar for Real Estate, started Ducktails as his own psychedelic pop project and quickly gained a strong following for his nostalgia-infused beats and consistently memorizing drones. After two successful LPs Ducktails is releasing Ducktails III: Arcade Dynamic early next year. Check out the track listing below:
In the Swing
The Razor’s Edge
Killin the Vibe
Don’t Make Plans
Ducktails III: Arcade Dynamics comes out January 10 on Woodist Records. Listen to Ducktails’ single “Hamilton Road” below.
