Ducktails
Jersey Devil

Matt Mondanile completed this latest record under his Ducktails moniker at his mums house in Ridgewood only venturing out on the train to Hoboken to mix it in Sonic Youth's studio. He grabbed coffee on the way and enjoyed the sweet summer smell. This could be the last Ducktails record for a while (ever?) so try ...view item »

Ducktails
St. Catherine

Matt Mondanile is back with another solo effort under his moniker Ducktails. This one, St. Catherine, will be your summer soundtrack. It promises to be packed with laid-back songs like we’ve come to love them from Mondanile’s other project, Real Estate. It&rsq...view item »

Ducktails
Wish Hotel EP

Ducktails are about to be at the end of an experiment that sees the reviewer write whilst exceedingly hungry. If a record sounds great when you are as hungry as I am then it must be pretty exhilarating to recently-fed people.   Following on from the mixed bag that was ‘The Flower Lane&...view item »

Ducktails
The Flower Lane

There were audible gasps when the promo of the lead track from Real Estate sidesman Matt Mondanile’s new opus was played here at the towers. It has been known for the wrong artists to appear on promos and flummox us completely but in this case the stylistic s...view item »

Ducktails III: Arcade Dynamics

What is it with the US indie underground? Why is it they can't leave the 80s Brit post-punk/indie scene alone? I'm not moaning - this album is mint. Just lay back and from the offset listen to New Order stroking Felt in a dusty cupboard. Add some other soft, hazy mellow fabric of your choice and you've got a fine bizarre love triangle. The wondr...view item »

Ducktails
Killin the Vibe

The artist formerly known as Matt Mondanile returns with a new EP that's every bit as swathed in fuzzy nostalgia as anything in his canon. The title track is great. It's called "Killing The Vibe" and it does anything but. It's such a good song. It gets by on a heady use of fuzz and dynamics...and a little help from Panda Bear, Dent May and J...view item »

Ducktails

After a spat of excellent tape and CD releases and just a little bit of interhype we finally get a full length record from Matt Mondanile's Ducktails and it's a total winner!! And Ducktails, props on the name fo'sure!! Nine tracks of distinguished lo-fi surf folk/space pop cover as much ground as is possible on this 's/t' debut. It' begins with a l...view item »

Mirror Image

Been waiting a while for this little beauty and it's been worth the wait. Two more delicious helpings of jangle heavy, sun drenched, blissed out jams to save what's left of my crappy summer. I've been hammering 'Landscapes' and the self titled LP so it's a treat to have a couple of newies to beam off. A-side 'Apple Walk' is a bitter sweet almost...view item »

Ducktails/ Rangers
Split

This is a review to encompass all of the Bored Fortress 2010 singles club set: Something quite special here which has made me go all gooey just handling the things. When the Not Not Fun singles club comes around I'm a happy man and this year is no exception. The deal here is that you can either score any of the singles individually or...view item »

Ducktails
Landscapes

You know i'm digging the sweet sounds of Matthew Mandanilee a.k.a Ducktails. You know i'm digging the new L.P (well new to us) 'Landscapes' out on Olde English Spelling Bee. Mandanilee has fallen upon a winning formula of jangly, sun-drenched instrumentals that seems to improve with every new release. With 'Landscapes' he's even blessed us ...view item »

Ducktails
Live on WFMU

You may recall that we had a great Woods live LP in recently that was originally broadcast on WFMU radio, well now we have a second installation courtesy of Ducktails. Here Matt Mondanile teams up with fellow Real Estate member Martin Courtney to perform six tracks from various LP's and singles he's had a hand in with both his folksy stuff and h...view item »

V/A (Mantles, Ducktails, Fresh And Onlys, Woods etc)
Welcome Home / Diggin’ The Universe

Woodsist are the up and coming label that remind me of the type of imprint I slavishly followed as a young man, in that they are American, have great quality control and a slew of good lop sided lo-medium fidelity bands. Woods have yet to strike a proper chord with me (surely only a matter of time) and their opening entry is lovely lo-fi pop, ev...view item »

Various (Kohn, Peaking Lights, Alien Radio, Ducktails)
Split

Nice 7" this. Not come across anything on Kraak before but if this is what they are into then they're good lads in my book. The Alien Radio and Ducktails tracks are exclusives and are certainly worth a listen but it's the Kohn and Peaking Lights tracks that deliver the surprises (more on them in a minute). So the Alien Radio tune is a total muta...view item »

Ducktails
Back Yard

Ducktails have become a little bit of a favourite around here in recent times, especially in Business Lady's dainty little ears, so as a little treat for those of you who've been enjoying his Not Not Fun album Release the Bats have put out Back Yard, a collection of his earliest recordings. Despite the remastering for this CD edition of 500 it's st...view item »

Ducktails / Dracula Lewis
Split

Right, i've taken up the baton from Business Lady. She's chipped a fingernail & is currently recuperating in the (Business) Ladies room, distressed at this awful cosmetic damage she's inflicted to her digit. So after meeting the man the other night (Matt Mondanile) and finding him to be a proper nice character, I'm in the fortunate position ...view item »

Ducktails
Hamilton Road

The more I listen to Ducktails the happier I become it would seem. Something about the primitive drum machines and the washed out, guitar fuzz tranquility that really works for me. It's obvious M.M crafts a fine tune but it's even better that he's happy for those ideas to be presented in such a ramshackle, home-recorded way. This 7" preview's th...view item »
