Our album of the week (14th January 2011)
Ducktails is the one-man psychedelic pop project of Matthew Mondanile, guitarist for New Jersey s Real Estate and, more importantly, a proud son of the mid-1980s. At 22 years old, he started releasing his own cassette albums. His first 7-inch came out on Breaking World Records and was followed by a string of LPs, cassettes, and CDs on independent labels like Not Not Fun, Olde English Spelling Bee, Release the Bats, Arbor and Goaty Tapes. Now surrounded by a crew of young songwriters, Mondanile spends his time either touring or recording in the basement of his parent s house. Categorized by David Keenan as part of the hypnagogic pop movement, Ducktails realizes a shared cultural memory and nostalgia through various genres. Ducktails III: Arcade Dynamics is Mondanile s third official full-length LP and first for Woodsist Records Past releases on Not Not Fun, Olde English Spelling Bee, Release the Bats, etc.
